How does Diclofenac work?

Diclofenac Sodium Gastro-Resistant tablets are one of a number of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which means they block the COX-2 and COX-1 enzymes responsible for prostaglandin production.

Prostaglandins are a major factor in causing inflammation by contributing to the development of redness, swelling, heat, and pain. With less prostaglandins, you experience less inflammation and pain.

The Diclofenac Sodium tablet is a Gastro-Resistant. This means it is covered with a coating that stops the tablet from dissolving in the acidic conditions of the stomach, so that the Diclofenac can only be released further down in your gut, dissolving in the small intestine. This process prevents the tablet from causing irritation to the lining of your stomach.

How to take Diclofenac Tablets

If you are suitable to buy Diclofenac online, take Diclofenac exactly as your doctor has told you, or as outlined in the Patient Information Leaflet (PIL). You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

For oral administration (by mouth): Swallow the tablets whole with a glass of water, with or after food. Do not crush or chew the tablets.

While you are taking Diclofenac tablets your doctor will want to see you to check you are on the right dose for you and look for any side effects. This is particularly important if you are elderly.

The dose of Diclofenac can vary depending on the condition you are taking the medication to treat, as well as what your doctor has told you to take each day. Therefore, ALWAYS read the PIL before taking Diclofenac.

What are the possible side effects of Diclofenac?

Side effects are rare, and most people don’t get any. Possible side effects may vary from one person to the next, as with any medication. You should always read the manufacturer’s Patient Information Leaflet (PIL) before taking this or any other medication.

This will give you important instructions on how and when to take the medication, as well as any possible side effects of the drug.
