DICLOFENAC belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used to relieve pain and inflammation associated with migraine, muscle pain, dental pain, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis, gout, strain, and sprain. Pain is an unpleasant sensation and emotional experience associated with tissue damage.
DICLOFENAC contains Diclofenac which works by blocking the effect of an enzyme called cyclo-oxygenase (COX) that produces prostaglandins responsible for the sense of pain and inflammation. Thereby, DICLOFENAC provides relief from pain and inflammation.
DICLOFENAC should be taken as prescribed. This medicine may cause certain side effects such as stomach pain, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, indigestion, loss of appetite, headache, and dizziness. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
DICLOFENAC should be avoided if allergic to it. Inform your doctor if you have stomach ulcers, gastric bleeding, severe heart failure, high blood pressure and liver or kidney disease before taking DICLOFENAC. Consult your doctor if you are pregnant, planning for pregnancy or breastfeeding. DICLOFENAC may cause dizziness; therefore, drive only if you are alert. Avoid alcohol consumption as it may cause increased dizziness and stomach irritation. DICLOFENAC is not recommended for use in children below 12 years of age as the safety is not established.
Pain and inflammation
DICLOFENAC belongs to a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). DICLOFENAC relieves mild to moderate pain, swelling and joint stiffness caused due to arthritis. It is also helpful in the conditions of acute migraine, muscle pain, dental pain, gout, sprain, and strain.

Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder affecting various joints (hands and feet). In this condition, the body's immune system attacks its own tissue (including joints).
Ankylosing spondylitis: Ankylosing spondylitis is a rare type of arthritis that affects the spine and larger joints, causing extreme pain and stiffness.
Osteoarthritis: It is a joint disease in which the two ends of the joints come together due to the breakdown of a protective covering called cartilage. Due to the absence of this protective covering, the joints rub against each other, leading to pain and stiffness. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, inflammation and tenderness.
