Diclofenac Sodium is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that is used to relieve pains and aches caused by headache, cold, backache, muscle aches and arthritis. It works by blocking the production of certain substances that cause inflammation and pain in the body, as well as reducing prostaglandin to relieve fever, swelling and pain.
Diclofenac Sodium commonly comes as an oral tablet taken two to four times per day, as prescribed by your doctor.
It may cause some side effects including headache, dizziness, drowsiness, stomach pain, upset stomach, gas, bloating, diarrhea, heartburn and constipation.
Diclofenac Sodium can also be used to treat other conditions, as suggested by your doctor.
