Diclofenac Overview

Diclofenac (sold under a number of trade names)[1] is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken or applied to reduce inflammation and as an analgesic reducing pain in certain conditions. It is supplied as or contained in medications under a variety of trade names. The name "diclofenac" derives from its chemical name: 2-(2,6-dichloranilino) phenylacetic acid.

Is it safe to take Diclofenac after you've taking Aleve?
1 Reply RSS
My mother has a bad sciatic nerve which causes her pain quite frequently. This morning, she was looking for her Diclofenac and couldn't find it, so she took the last two Aleve and laid down. I found them for her, but now we're unsure if she can take one so soon after taking Aleve. It's been about 20 minutes since she took them. Is it alright for her to take her Diclofenac? ## No, these are both non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, so that would essentially be doubling up and she should not do so, without her doctor's approval. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

Diclofenac gel
5 Replies RSS
I have been prescribed diclofenac gel and was wondering if there are any side effects. I was given this as oral nsaids are very hard on my stomach. Also, is this beneficial for a condition called Trigger finger? ## It can cause the same side effects as other NSAIDs, however, since it is topical, your body doesn't tend to absorb as much of it, so this prevents these problems for most people. It can generally help with any condition involving pain and inflammation, however, as with any drug, it doesn't work for everyone. As with any medication, the only thing you can really do is try it and see if it helps. ## If there's anything else I can help you with, please let me know. ## To Verwon, Thank you for the input. So far the diclofenac gel seems to help with the inflammation an...

Arthrotec and sulfa allergy
4 Replies RSS
Until Dec 2016 I have been taking Arthrotec for years and never had a problem. Walmart will not take my plan D Envision RX Plus and so I switched to Walgreens which will. I am allergic to sulfa, sulfite, etc. and when I got Walgreens Arthrotec I got sick and had a blood clot. I ended up on Coumadin for probably the rest of my life and the doctor does not want me to take Arthrotec. Does Walgreens get their Arthrotec from Canada or some place that has a filler with sulfa? Arthrotec has worked for the pain of osteoarthritis and I do not want to have to go in the hospital again or give up the Arthrotec. They have told me to use Tylenol but it is useless. ## Hello Barb, I realize it's been one month since you asked this question and I don't have a direct answer for you. What I will s...
