Since using adco-diclofenac 50mg tablets for my leg i started having blurred vision. How do i overcome this side effect? ## how to treat the side effects of blury vision since using adco-declofenac ## There is really nothing you can do to combat this side effect, the FDA warns that you may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding.

It could be that it isn't the right medication for you and you may have to try something else. ## I am still having the the same effects.I have not found or got any info on what to do.

diclofenac vs percocet
1 Reply 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?
