Is diclofenac potassium b.p 50mg, pitofenone hydrochloride 5 mg and fenpiverinium bromid .1mg - super spas tablet safe in the 27th week of pregnancy? ## I am 82yrs old.

D Fresh Mr Tablet Information

I'm having muscle pain and swelling after a heavy workout in the gym. Can I take D Fresh Mr tablets for some relief? ## Hi Giru, Sorry to hear about how you're feeling. Sounds like you really got a great workout in to leave the gym so sore. From what I could gather, D Fresh Mr tablets reportedly contain a combination of Diclofenac 50mg and Paracetamol 500mg (also known as Tylenol). Diclofenac is a NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) and Paracetamol is a mild pain reliever, so my thinking is that it may help provide at least some level of relief depending upon how severe your muscle pain & swelling is. Hope you make a full recovery soon! ## Can I take a D Fresh MR tablet for sciatica pain in my right leg that I've had for the past 3 months? Please advise.

diclofenac 75mg 2 times a day

My doctor prescribed me this because I might have a tear in my meniscus. Diclofenac 75mg -2 times a day. My question is do I have to space it out by exactly 12 hours ? Or is it just a general idea? How serious would it be if I took it 8-9 hours later instead? Like say I was on my way to bed but messed up my morning dose time . Do I wait until the next morning ? ## Hello Kris, I hope you are having a wonderful day. First I want to ask exactly what the instructions on your medication states. If it says to administer your medication twice a day but does not specify a time frame then you may be able to take it 8-9 hours apart. If it does say specifically on the administration medication that you should take them 12 hours apart I would suggest doing so, or at least as close to that time fram...
