effectiveness of dynapar

I suffer from gaut on my left leg near the big toe. How effective is this tablet and what are the side effects of long term use? ## Hello, Ashok! How are you? The FDA lists this medication as containing the active ingredient Diclofenac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. It is effective, but there's no way to know how well it will work for you. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Long-term use creates a risk of liver damage, liver failure and stomach ulceration. Is there anything else I can help with?

Diclofenac unavailable
1 Reply RSS
I have osteoarthritis and the only drug which provides some relief is diclofenac which I get on prescription. The last two months the chemist has said there are production problems and it is unavailable. This is a disaster for me. Has anyone else had this problem? ## It is only today that I started having problems. It seems to be due to suppliers having difficulty obtaining supplies from the manufacturer. I'm waiting now to get an alternative prescription from GP. As yet I dont know what will be prescribed in its place.

I purchased diclofenac sodium & codeine phosphate tablets 50mg, but I cant find any images to identify it as such. It came in a foiled back pop out sleeve of 10. It's a light peach or pink color with a score on one side and nothing on the other. It also says Duranzo on it. My vision is not so good so i cant make out the pharmaceutical co. Can you help me please? ## Hello, Mini! How are you? This combination isn't available in the U.S., it is a foreign medication from India. Duranzo is listed as containing Diclofenac and Codeine, but since foreign medications aren't regulated like U.S. prescription drugs, there's no way to confirm that's what you've received. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit formin...

Rumoquin Canada

Is it possible to import Rumoquin from outside the United States? I think it's over the counter, just not out here. Worked really great for me when I needed it during a trip. I just wonder if customs allows you to bring back medication for personal use? ## Hello, Mere! How are you? If you are taking something, or it is prescribed for you, while visiting another country, you can bring back up to a 3 month supply with you. However, since the FDA doesn't like these combinations, so it's not approved here, you wouldn't be able to just import it or anything. It is listed as containing the NSAID Diclofenac; the steroid Dexamethasone and the muscle relaxant Methocarbamol. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, nervousness, insomnia, acne...
