My wife is having pain in back and neck from several years. She was teated with typical medicine like diclofenac and loback by an orthopedic doctor. Off late we have consulted a neurophysician few months back. He prescribed, "maxgalin er" for a month. It has given a relief for couple of months. However, we have observed a side effect that she was having internal balls like ones inside the muscles (May be nurves?) which don't have any symptoms from out side. But, they are very painful when she feels little anxiety! Even after stopping the same medicine there is no relief. After consulting the same doctor discussing it, he just changed the medicine, "maxgalin 75". The problem has alleviated much. She mentally has become too much week and so much anxious.

is it a substitute for Flamar? i'm having pain from recent excesses in physical exertion. Flamar was recommended but the pharmacist gave us Auroflam ## Hello, Sorry to hear about your challenges with pain. Do you feel like the Auroflam has been helping at all?

tribedoce with diclofenac
1 Reply RSS
I have ciatic problems and somebody recomended this pills ## Hello, Jose! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. Tribedoce is just classified by the FDA as a B complex vitamin, so it won't treat pain. B vitamins can support nerve health, but they will not work like analgesics do. They can also cause some nausea, in some people that take them. Diclofenac is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, it's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. In the U.S. Diclofenac requires a doctor's prescription. Is there anything else I can help with?
