Expired Diclofenac

I have diclofenac that was prescribed late 2006 but has no expiry date, is it still safe to use? ## Hello, Bob! How are you? I'm not sure how your country handles drug laws and expiration dates, so I can only provide you with information that I am familiar with from the U.S. FDA. From their efficacy studies, when left in the original factory sealed containers, it was found to retain full efficacy for 3 years, but once that container was opened and it was dispensed in a pharmacy/chemist's container that exposes it to the elements that cause degradation, that efficacy could only be guaranteed for one year. Learn more Diclofenac details here. it was not, however, found to become dangerous after the expiration date, but after so many years, it is most likely worthless and you should...

what is Auroflam-MX used for

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

If you need any form of verification, Auroflam-MX is manufactured by Aurochem Pharmaceuticals Ltd., based in India. You can always contact them for a comparison of "inactive" ingredients, if you feel the need. You can also learn more about this drug on the page for Diclofenac Details I hope this info helps! ## Flamar MX is effective every time and is re...

Diclofenac Potassium 50

My friend says that this medicine is for curing headaches... But as i read its uses, head aches is one of the side effects of taking this medicine... Which is true? ## Hi, Jan! As odd as it may seem, both are actually true. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and while these medications do successfully treat headaches in some people, there is also a chance that they could cause headaches in some people as a side effect.
