I have been taking diclofenac for about 6 months. Had it filled at 2 different pharmacies who had different suppliers. One (Pack Pharmaceuticals) cost quite a bit more than the other (Actavis). Just curious if it is worth the extra money. Does anyone have a preference? Thanks!

Which one worked best for you?

That's what you really have to go by, since everyone is different.

In theory, they are the same, but there can be some slight differences that may cause one to work better for you than another.

Thus, if the more expensive one works better for you and is worth your money, then get that one. But if the other works better, then stick with it….or if they both affect you the same, there's really no point in spending more on it.

This medication is an NSAID and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation.

I understand what you are saying, but that's not what I am asking. I honestly don't remember if one worked better than the other because I took one, was off for a while and then got the other. Didn't notice until later that it was a different brand, and since I had different levels of pain, etc. it was hard for me to judge.
I am asking for others' opinions about which they might like better before I request going back to the other generic. I have had meds that were dramatically different from one generic to the other, and that is why I am asking the opinion of someone who has actually taken them. I already know what the situation is in general and "in theory". I am asking for specifics from patients who have taken the drugs.

I was recently prescribed Actavis for surgical pain, then given a refill with Pack. The Actavis brand worked far better and lasted for the full 12 hours. The Pack brand only lasted for 4 hours.
