Cataflam (diclofenac) for Period Pain: "Cataflam is the best OTC for period pain. I can function properly now. I use to take 2 panadol tablets which are pretty useless. I end up feeling nausea and tired. Do take this at the first sign of period for best results. It will be too late to take it when the pain starts."

Voltaren (diclofenac) for Back Pain: "I have been taking this for many years. I do not have to take it everyday. When I experience back pain I take it. The only side effect I have had is constipation."

Voltaren (diclofenac) for Osteoarthritis: "I have severe osteoarthritis in both knees, and arthritis in my back, and shoulders. My doctor prescribed Voltaren because I built up a resistance to ibuprofen and Aleve. I've been in pain for so long I forgot what it was like to be pain free. A little nervous over the long term side effects, so hoping I can get the weight off so I can be medication free. Just thankful to be able to move and do things I love without pain."

Voltaren (diclofenac) for Muscle Pain: "Used Voltaren on mild tendonitis of the elbow. Not only did it immediately reduce the pain, but it seems to be helping to speed up healing, when I am not using it, the pain seems to be getting progressively less severe"

Cataflam (diclofenac) for Period Pain: "Cataflam has helped but I have to take at least 4 - 6 a day to be able to survive the pain of my period. But once it starts working I feel so much better I have tried so much but only this works for me."

For Back Pain: "Took 1 tablet & went in to anaphylaxis within minutes. Had to call for an ambulance in between passing out. Late at night at home alone. Very scary experience. One and only time in my life I've ever had an allergic reaction to anything. Age 55 years. Adrenaline given at hospital emergency Department."

For Sciatica: "I have tried a lot of different NSAIDs and this is a miracle. I moved back up north where weather is colder, causing my sciatica to flare up more often. Been on this 6 months and so glad I am."

For Osteoarthritis: "I have had 6 surgeries on my right knee and now my left knee started bothering me I went to the doctor because I couldn't hardly bend it and walking was a joke. I have been on diclofenac for 2 days and i am totally surprised but I have no pain in either knee at this point, no side effects of this time. and I'm grateful that my doctor was aware enough to know to prescribe this for me"

Voltaren (diclofenac) for Frozen Shoulder: "The medication has been somewhat helpful with stiffness but the pain is still present. The stomach upset and ringing in the ears has caused me to request different medication."

For Pain: "Been on this medication for a week now. My pain level for my back has increased, I'm having the worst possible nightmares and I can no longer get comfortable sitting or laying down. The only plus side is my arthritis isn't bothering me half as bad."

For Osteoarthritis: "Diclofenac really helped with my arthritic hip pain & heel spur pain the first two weeks, but I had to stop taking it because it caused dizziness, nausea, nightmares, insomnia, irritability, headaches, pressure in ears, muscle weakness, fatigue, decreased urine output, worse joint pains when worn-off, liver pain."

For Pain: "I started taking Disclofenac today for severe back pain caused by shingles. Immediately I felt some relief and I'm able to take a deep breathe without it hurting. This is the only pain med that really helped."

Zipsor (diclofenac) for Pain: "I have been on many pain/anti-inflammatory medications to help with Rheumatoid Arthritis, Plantar Fasciitis and a torn tendon in my shoulder. It is the fastest acting and most effective pain relief I have tried (comparing to Duexis, Hydrocodone, Prednisone, Tramadol). It does not cause stomach upset like other NSAIDS and the only side effect is sleepiness but, a quick nap and pain is much better and no grogginess."

Voltaren (diclofenac) for Pain: "Used the Voltaren Gel for tendinitis and frozen shoulder. It didn't totally relieve the pain. Coupled with Hydrocodone and Physical Therapy..it allows me to sleep."

For Sciatica: "I was prescribed 50mg twice a day. I felt really good after 2 days. Went back to spin class (lightly) and light cycling. Then I felt good and did an elliptical. My Dr never told me to refrain from working out. After 26 years it's a hard habit to break. So I am in week 3. If I stand too long Sciatica returns. Some walks are good. He is doing this for 3 months. I hope it helps. I don't want cortisone injections."

Cambia (diclofenac) for Migraine: "Did not work for me at all. Since 2005 until now I've been on every non narcotic and narcotic meds for my migraines that in spring & summer increases them to 5-7 times a week. I've even had the injections even though I'd always say no way would I allow it but then I did them because if it would've helped it would be so worth it. I'm now quite desperate as I have no decent quality of life anymore. White brain matter was first detected in 2005 which led to more tests and found out it's Multiple Sclerosis that was causing it and in 2006 there was a tumor caught by Cat Scan deep in the left cerebellum. Surgeons say I'd have a 50/50 chance of dying. I hate to say it but migraines 5-7 days a week is not exactly living."

Cataflam (diclofenac) for Back Pain: "I've had chronic lower back pain for over two years (herniated disk). I can't say for sure what has relieved my pain, but ever since taking diclofenac my pain almost immediately has gone from being almost completely debilitated, to being able to function physically at the level I was at when pain started. Still have pain and not 100%, but my quality of life is back and I feel much more fluid and agile. For almost six months I could hardly get out of bed, let alone tie my shoes."

Cambia (diclofenac) for Migraine: "This medication is the only one that works for me to relieve my migraines. Although I am curious why I can only take it once a week. My migraines occur daily."
