My doctor prescribed both. I asked the Pharmacist if it was safe to use/take both at the same time. I was told it was alright. This site says not to. I am confused. I am only using the Flector patch. I am afraid to take the other with it.
They are both non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines ... if you don't use either medicine to their maximum dosage then you can use these medicines together.
The caution is to avoid you getting side effects, especially gastrointestinal. Although Flector is a topical delivery system the anti-inflammatory will be absorbed to some degree.
