Would like to order some of this cream ## Hello, Carla! How are you? I'm sorry, but this website does not manufacture, prescribe nor sell anything, it is an information only website. Additionally, this cream requires a doctor's prescription and must be made by a specialty compounding pharmacy to the doctor's dosage directions. Has your doctor prescribe this for you? ## Does this cream come up bad if my work checks me? ## I have Diclofenac 10% in PLO cream mixed.

round pink with GG739 0n it ,what is it. ## Hi Bob, How are you? From what I could gather, the round pink pill you have marked GG 739 is reportedly identified as a 75mg Diclofenac sodium delayed release tablet, used to relieve mild to moderate pain. Like other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) Diclofenac works by stopping the body's production of a substance that causes pain, fever, and inflammation. For verification of the pill's identity, this particular tablet is listed as being manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals. I hope this helps!
