diclofenac 50 mg

Hi, I am taking diclofenac 50mg once a day (night) for about 3 months. Is it alright if I continue to take it at this dose for another month before I see my specialist again? Will it cause me any harm? If I don't take it daily, it will cause me unbearable pain the whole day. By the way, I'm taking it for my rheumatoid arthritis and I am 32 years old, female with no other medical history. ## This is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to treat pain, fever, and inflammation. The FDA warns that it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Has your specialist told you to keep taking it?

Diclofenac 75 Mg

i am taking 75mg of diclofenac twice a day. How safe is this drug. the internet says it is the most dangerous of all nsaids. Is this true at this dosage? ## Hi Roger, From what I could gather, the usual adult dose of Diclofenac ranges from 25-50 mg orally 3 to 4 times a day or 75 mg orally twice a day. Diclofenac Extended-release dosages are usually administered at 100 mg orally once a day. A number of webpages also make a point of mentioning that the maximum daily dose of Diclofenac is: 225 mg; or 200 mg if you're taking the extended release version. In my opinion, 75mg twice daily (150 mg total daily dose) should be fine for most individuals. However, dangerous side effects can happen with any drug depending the person. It's probably not something you'd want to take long t... ...

I don't want to go over the maxium dose, so is it ok to take 225mgs of diclofenac dr tablet a day? ## Hello, Ashley! How are you? If the instructions say just twice a day, then you should only take it twice a day, unless your doctor has told you to do otherwise. Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so taking to much of it could cause stomach bleeding, stomach ulceration, liver damage or liver failure. Learn more Diclofenac details here.

Tappering off diclofenac

I am taking diclofenac and was wondering how long is safe to take it (75 mg twice a day) and when I am ready to stop taking it - is there a way the dosage is supposed to be decreased over time? ## In regards to medications like Diclofenac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, there is no set time limit that is safe to take them. Long-term use may cause damage or failure of the liver, or ulceration of the stomach, but there is no way to know if it will happen to any given person undergoing treatment. And no, it isn't addictive like opiates, so a tapering usually isn't needed, though if someone has been taking it for awhile, they may experience some minor rebound effects.

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... ...

Clonafec 100 mg Diclofenaco

Can Volfenac and/or Clonafec be used for arthritis? If not, what do you recommend? thank you ## @busdriver, Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication that reportedly works by stopping the production of a substance in the body that causes inflammation/pain... So in that respect it should help with certain conditions such as arthritis. NOTE: Just to confirm, clonafec and volfenac are simply other brand names for Diclofenac. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## Is it also good for heel spur pain and swelling in the foot? ## Dose Diclofenaco work?

Cataflam 50mg vs Diclofenac Sodium 75mg

I have inflammation in my back and was taking a pill called Cataflam 50mg but it does not work and still hurts. Can I take a cti 103 (Diclofenac Sodium 75mg) pill instead? Is Cataflam 50mg weaker than Diclofenac Sodium 75mg? ## Hi Evenlyn, Sorry to hear about your back condition. I hope you feel better soon! To answer your question, in short, yes, 50mg is weaker than 75mg. Cataflam is simply another brand name of Diclofenac; so it's pretty much the exact same thing at a different dosage, albeit the suffix is potassium with Cataflam instead of sodium as with the common/standard Diclofenac (& I'm not certain as to whether either mineral makes any notable difference in bioavailability/potency). As to whether or not you can take 75mg instead of 50mg, that's entirely up to yo... ...

Diclofenac Sod 75mg Ec Doesn't Give Me 12 hr. Coverage

I have been taking diclofenac sod 75 mg ec tab twice a day for about a month, for arthritis in my ankle. It helps early in the day, but does not last until the next pill is due. Same with the one I take in the evening, and when I get up in the morning I can barely walk. Is it possible for these to be prescribed 3 times per day, or would the 100 mg. give me longer coverage, or ? ? ?. I'd appreciate your help. Thanks ## Have you discussed this with your doctor? Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and a higher dose won't necessarily give you a longer time of efficacy, but from what I am reading some people with Arthritis do take it up to 3 times a day, as long as they don't go over 200mgs daily. You may want to discuss it with your doctor, because a 50mg dosage taken... ...

Can you take Tylenol with diclofenac sod 100 mg sa tab?

Can you take Tylenol with Diclofenac sod 100mg to relieve lower back pain? ## From what I could gather, there are no drug interactions or contraindications listed between Tylenol and Diclofenac. So based on that information, you should be fine taking the two together without experiencing any such complications. The main concern with Tylenol (acetaminophen) in my honest opinion, is just staying within safe dosing limits, due to it's notorious reputation for causing liver damage at higher doses and/or when taken for a prolonged period of time. I hope this info helps. Get well soon! ## i am taking nexito forte is it any indication in blood result such as show hepetitise ## My Dr. said that taking a diclofenac and one tylenol and the same time boosts the pain relief.
