Reviews for Diclofenac

Anonymous April 20, 2009

“Taking this for 2 to 3 days allows me to walk without pain. I think the side effects are bad. However I do not have any of them. I am just glad I can walk, the pain is intense without it.”

“My GP was originally going to go with a three times a day painkiller/anti-inflammatory, but I asked for a once a day. He prescribed diclofenac, 100 mg. I like the once a day, but for my foot aggravation and pain have just not noticed it as being all that effective. I did have the side effect of sensitivity to sun.”

Cataflam (diclofenac): “I was given Toradol for five days post operation (which is another wonderful medication) and Loratab to take along with it. I never had the need or desire to take the latter. But after Toradol was gone (I was able to stretch it over nine days) I still needed something else. I began to take Naproxen over-the counter strength and the pain and stiffness gradually came back. I had Cataflam, which after 2-3 dosages, controlled the discomfort that was building up. ”

Voltaren (diclofenac): “I had 2 shoulder surgeries. My doctor gave me this medication between the surgeries for pain. It worked. I did not get a "high" from it and it helped the pain. I do not like taking pills at all, but in severe cases I will use it and this did the trick.”

Voltaren (diclofenac): “No side effects and back to work in a couple of days. Using voltaren and some intense home treatment reduced swelling and pain dramatically. When taking this drug the faster you get moving the better it works so don't sit around hoping for miracles.”

“I take diclofenac for chronic back pain. I take one diclofenac every 12 hours and it is very effective. I had mild dizziness and upset stomach early in treatment but now have no side effects at all. When my back gets bad, I still take muscle relaxers, narcotic pain relievers, and chiropractic treatment (when I can afford it), but diclofenac helps me manage things so as to reduce the need for stronger medicines.”
