While it's technically okay to take both, there are other factors that can play a role, such as those that I've asked about. Have you talked to your doctor about it?

My mom is taking diclofenac sodium 50mg each night before sleep for sciatica from past 5 years.Unfortunately,we could not seek a permanent treatment or any other better medicine for this disorder.Now,I want that she could be able to withdraw from it because I think it can cause serious side effects in prolong use. How she can withdraw from it and what are other best options to cure her disorder? ## Hello, Reet! How is your mom doing? This is not a habit forming medication, it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so she should be able to just stop taking it, as long as her doctor approves.

Has she ever had ...
