Dose of Diclofenac Sodium for Osteoarthritis, the recommended diclofenac sodium dosage is 50 mg two or three times a day or 75 mg twice daily.

the most common diclofenac sodium side effects include: Stomach pain, Constipation, Diarrhea, Heartburn or indigestion (dyspepsia), Gas, Unexplained bleeding, Ulcer in the stomach or intestines (peptic ulcer), Nausea, Vomiting, Anemia, Dizziness, Swelling, Increase in liver enzymes, Headache, Itching, Unexplained rash, Ringing in the ears (tinnitus).

The FDA warning: people using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), including diclofenac sodium, may be at higher risk for heart attack or stroke than those people who do not take NSAIDs. This warning does not apply to those who take aspirin, however. This risk may be higher in people who have been taking NSAIDs for a long time.
