What is Diclofenac Sodium?

Diclofenac sodium is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID) that is prescribed to treat swelling and inflammation.

In addition, it can alleviate pain and reduce other symptoms resulting from different joint problems and medical issues.

These comprise gout, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sprains and strains, back pain, soft tissue injuries, and migraines. Additionally, ankylosing spondylitis, a disorder that causes inflammation in the spine, is treated with diclofenac.

Diclofenac is available as suppositories, pills, and capsules, including slow-release versions. These can only be obtained with a prescription.

Pharmacies sell diclofenac gel and plasters to relieve joint pain. It can also be administered as eye drops or via injection. Usually, only hospitals offer these.

There are other brand names for diclofenac, including Fenactol, Econac, Dicloflex, and Voltarol.

How do Diclofenac Sodium tablets work?

The body releases chemicals called prostaglandins to aid in inflammation and healing. In addition to the positive effects, the production of these substances might have some negative side effects, like discomfort and fever.

An enzyme known as cyclooxygenase (COX) is responsible for producing these prostaglandins. By lowering the production of COX-1 and COX-2, diclofenac and other NSAIDs help to lessen persistent inflammation, discomfort, and fever.

While the COX-2 enzyme is responsible for producing the prostaglandins that induce fever and pain, the COX-1 enzyme aids in shielding the stomach lining from any harm that acid may do.

This is the reason why occasionally using Diclofenac or NSAIDs might cause ulcers in your stomach and encourage bleeding.

Alternatives to Diclofenac

The following are some substitutes for Diclofenac tablets. You can purchase Diclofenac online in the UK and other substitutes from Ashcroft Pharmacy:

  • Naproxen
  • Ibuprofen
  • Mefenamic Acid

Who can take Diclofenac?

Diclofenac can be taken by most people.

Diclofenac may be given to kids to treat joint issues. For children six months of age and older, diclofenac pills, capsules, and suppositories are acceptable.

Children 14 years of age and older can use diclofenac gel. Diclofenac patches and plasters are appropriate for adolescents sixteen years of age and older.

Some people should not use diclofenac. Inform your physician or chemist if you: 

  • Have ever experienced a negative reaction to any medication, including diclofenac
  • Possess an allergy to aspirin or other NSAIDs, such as naproxen or ibuprofen, which are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

  • Having ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease

How to use Diclofenac?

Pay close attention to your doctor's instructions on the usage of this product. Also, ask your chemist or physician any queries you may have.

Unless directed otherwise by your doctor, take Diclofenac orally with water. For ten minutes after taking this medication, avoid lying down.

When taking this drug, you can take it with food, milk, or an antacid if you have stomach discomfort. On the other hand, antacids, milk, and food may slow down the medication's absorption and postpone its pain relieving effects.

This medication's dosage is determined by your medical condition, how well you respond to treatment, and any additional medications you may be taking.

Give a list of all the medications you are taking to your doctor. By taking the drug at the lowest feasible dose for the shortest amount of time, you can reduce the likelihood of experiencing side effects like gastrointestinal bleeding.

Never take more medication than your doctor has prescribed, nor should you raise the dosage. As prescribed by your physician, keep taking Diclofenac for a chronic illness.

You may not experience this drug's full benefits for up to two weeks after starting to use it regularly. Diclofenac works best when taken as soon as you feel discomfort, if you are taking it "as needed." If you wait until the pain has gotten worse, this medication might not work.


  • What is gout?

    The common kind of arthritis known as gout is defined by abrupt flare-ups of excruciating joint pain. Although it usually affects the big toe, it can also affect the elbows, wrists, hands, and feet.

    Gout attacks can occur suddenly, sometimes in the middle of the night. Some people can go years without having an attack, while others get gout attacks frequently.

  • Can I take Diclofenac during pregnancy?

    Generally speaking, diclofenac is not advised during pregnancy. This is due to the possibility that diclofenac could harm your unborn child.

    For instance, it may have an impact on your unborn child's circulation and result in insufficient amniotic fluid surrounding the child.

    If using diclofenac during your pregnancy has more advantages than disadvantages, your doctor will only recommend it to you.

    There might be safer alternatives for you to try. Generally speaking, the best painkiller to take while pregnant is paracetamol.

  • Can I take other medications with Diclofenac?

    Combining diclofenac with codeine or paracetamol is safe. Without first consulting a physician, avoid using diclofenac along with aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen.

    Aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and diclofenac are all members of the same class of medications known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

    Combining diclofenac with other NSAIDs can make it more likely for you to experience side effects like stomach pain. NSAIDs are also present in over-the-counter medications, including cough and cold cures.

  • What happens if I forget to take it?

    Unless it's almost time for your next dose, take the diclofenac as soon as you recall if you forget to take it. In this instance, take the following dose at the scheduled time and skip the missed one.

    Never take two doses to make up for one that you forgot to take. If you have trouble remembering dosages, setting an alarm clock could be helpful. 

  • Is Diclofenac available without a prescription?

    There are no over-the-counter Diclofenac tablets available. Diclofenac 25mg is available without a prescription online from Ashcroft Pharmacy for treating pain. Online pharmacies are able to provide prescriptions for Diclofenac 50 mg pills.

  • Can I take alcohol and Diclofenac together?

    Consult your doctor before taking alcohol and diclofenac together. Alcohol and Diclofenac together can raise the possibility and risk of gastrointestinal bleeding.

    Call your doctor right away if you take alcohol and Diclofenac combined and experience any abrupt bleeding symptoms in your stomach or intestines.

    These symptoms include any coughing up blood or vomit that resembles coffee grounds, as well as black, tarry, or bloody stool. Unless instructed otherwise by your physician, do not discontinue taking or using the drug.
