i have diclofenac that is it still okay to use
2 Replies RSS
I have diclofenac that was prescribed 9 / 2013, is it still okay to use? ## This medication does not become dangerous, once expired, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it may not work as well as it did, when new. Additionally, due to some of the risks associated with it, it isn't safe to double up. Thus, it would be best to dispose of the expired medication and obtain a new supply, if you still need to take it. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## How many bills on the bottles on what milligram they are and how much is a bottle

Is it"normal" to have dizzyness and even occasional fainting when taking diclofenac sod 75mg.These have occurred upon rising from a supine position and lasts only seconds.Patient is on medication for elevated BPand having no problems.Diclofenac has been prescribed for back pain ## Hello, Dan! How is the patient doing? Has there been any change?

What is the best generic version of diclofenac Pack or Actavis?
3 Replies RSS
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. Learn more Diclofenac details here. This med...
