Am breastfeeding so I will not take it during breastfeeding but I do have stores of breastmilk in the freezer & I can "pump & dump" until it clears my system but how long is that?
How long does Cambia stay in your system?

In about 4.5 hours the Cambia is almost completely out of your system. Cambia/diclofenac was undetectable (<100 mcg/L) in the breastmilk over a 6-hour period after a 50 mg intramuscular injection in 6 women. This <100 mcg/L is a tiny amount of the chemical, or NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug), because it takes 1000 micrograms to equal 1 milligram and 1 milligram equals 3.5 ounces. The 50 mg is a much higher dose that is injected into the women for this study and yet most of it clears their systems quickly. As a Mom, I would wait at least 6-7 hrs. after taking the Cambia and pump & dump the breastmilk at that time. That's just me and I'm not a Dr., just a medical professional and a picky Mom. This is if your baby is a normal birth weight baby, not underweight.
