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.

Taking Diclofenac with Warfarin
1 Reply RSS
Can I use Diclofenac with my blood thinner Warfarin? I have been told by Dr.'s no, but this Dr I have now says yes... Is Diclofenac a blood thinner? ## Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so according to FDA reports, it may cause some blood thinning as a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, and stomach irritation. Thus, usually it is best to avoid taking it with Warfarin. Is there anything else I can help with?

1 Reply RSS
I accidentally took an expired diclofenac potassium drug, which was expired in 12/2016. It has been 15 minutes since I took it. What are the effects? And what can I do? ## This medication does not become dangerous, once expired, according to FDA reports, it just starts to lose efficacy. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. How are you feeling? Have you experienced any issues? Are you on any other medications?

diclofenaco for siatic nerve,degeneritive disc
3 Replies RSS
I was given diclofenaco 100mg in Mexico and I was pain free in 2 days. Can't count the pills I've taken over the years to no avail. Surgery and fusing is all my US doctors could see as a cure. Only take it for flare ups and 1-2 tops. Wish I had found this years ago. Was on the "disabled" list for 3 years. Been working now 1.5 years without a hitch. ## Hi, Tom! Wow! I'm very glad that you found something that worked. In the U.S. this is only available by prescription as the generic Diclofenac or the name brand Voltaren, there may be a few others as well. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so I do need to add some important information for you, long-term usage of this medication could cause increased blood pressure, fluid retention, stomach ulceration and/or liver...

Expired Diclofenac
10 Replies RSS
I have diclofenac that was prescribed late 2006 but has no expiry date, is it still safe to use? ## Hello, Bob! How are you? I'm not sure how your country handles drug laws and expiration dates, so I can only provide you with information that I am familiar with from the U.S. FDA. From their efficacy studies, when left in the original factory sealed containers, it was found to retain full efficacy for 3 years, but once that container was opened and it was dispensed in a pharmacy/chemist's container that exposes it to the elements that cause degradation, that efficacy could only be guaranteed for one year. Learn more Diclofenac details here. it was not, however, found to become dangerous after the expiration date, but after so many years, it is most likely worthless and you should...

Diclofenac vs percocet
3 Replies RSS
How does diclofenac sodium enteric-coated (ec) 75mg tab compare to a percocet 5/325? Does it work the same and is it a narcotic / opiate? ## No, Diclofenac is actually classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, it is used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. So it also does not work the same. Has your doctor prescribed it for you? ## I need to know if Diclofenac Sodium Er 75 mg has Morphine in it? ## Hi Shaw - actually no, Diclofenac is its own drug completely different from Morphine. It is not even an opiate medication. Hope this helps!

I take diclofenac 75mgs DR tablet, it says to take one twice a day. I was wondering if I can take one three times a day? I don't want to go over the maxium dose, so is it ok to take 225mgs of diclofenac dr tablet a day? ## Hello, Ashley! How are you? If the instructions say just twice a day, then you should only take it twice a day, unless your doctor has told you to do otherwise. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so taking to much of it could cause stomach bleeding, stomach ulceration, liver damage or liver failure. Learn more Diclofenac details here.
