i want to know if it is required for a patient to eat first before taking this medicine which is Voltaren?
Yeah, NSAIDS like Voltaren cause the tummy lining to thin, allowing acid to mess with the tissue, so eat.
However, I play often with my own feel for things. I realized finally the MD Rx'd over to the pharmacy w/o telling me it was changed to enterocoating (e.c.), & with a full glass of water I can get by without tummy burning.
So I don't need the Prilosec so often!
Oh, the tablet releases it's medicine in the gut instead. One could get an ulcer there though, so eat when ya have food around.
