Diclofenac and smoking

Common Questions and Answers about Diclofenac and smoking


Avatar n tn They are open fracture, highly comminuted fracture pattern, significant displacement of the fracture fragments, smoking, diabetes, NSAID’s, infection and hypothyroidism. In your case, NSAID use could have aided in non union of the fracture, but there is a need to rule out other causes as well. The treatment for non union, usually involves plate fixation as exchange IM nailing gives poor results.

1684282 tn?1505701570 I am becoming somewhat frustrated with the way a lot of my colleagues practice medicine. Disenchanted, angry would be the other words that could be used. We all get ostensibly that same training and all of us are supposedly in it to help our patients. So, how come have I been getting so many letters lately on my addiction forum from desperate people unable to quit taking the tramadol pills that their own kind doctors have so freely prescribed for them?
Avatar n tn X-Rays do not show anything in the lungs I wanted my MD to give me Prednisone but he gave me (Diclofenac SOD 75 MG) and is not working with me, I don't know what i have (Asthma, COPD, PF, Emphsyma, Cronic Bronchities) and he do not seem to know too.
Avatar m tn Doctor prescribed me with NSAID orally, Etoricoxib and Diclofenac Sodium to help with the pain. Can these medicines affect any window periods or any of the tests above? 3) Due to my job nature as a salesman, I drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes occasionally. Do alcohol drinking and smoking affect any of the tests above even if they were consumed a night before the tests being taken (in the morning)? 4) I was anxious in the 12 weeks period.
Avatar m tn It responded to anti-inflamatory drugs like Diclofenac and hot massages. The hot water bottle helps. I have arthritis and had had pains in some rib joints before so the explanation is that when the rib joints are inflammed and you breath in, the inflamed joints prevent the chest from expanding and that has an effect on the big chest muscles located in the rib cage. This causes intense pain. Mine sometimes takes about 3 weeks to clear.
Avatar n tn I have the same problem and have also seen the doctor twice and been diagnosed with the windpipe virus the first time and lung infection the second time and put onto antibiotics. Again, the antibiotics haven't helped me. To add to this, I now have severe pain in the region of my right lung, where they said the infection was, and slight pain around my left lung.
Avatar n tn Try some breathing exercises and neck exercises and yoga. Also take some OTC painkillers and apply diclofenac gel in the neck area. Avoid alcohol, smoking, stress, strong light, sun , loud noise etc. Adequate sleep is important and take a warm shower or read a book just before going to bed. Try some antianxiety medication like alprazolam and see if that helps. Drink plenty of fluids and follow a healthy diet schedule.
Avatar n tn The effects of cholestyramine and colestipol on the absorption of diclofenac in man.Colestipol produces a similar but smaller effect. Though some information charts say that it should be used with caution in patients with Diabetes,it refers to underlying conditions as renal failure, hepatic impairment,IBS,stroke,clotting problems,asthma, allergies, CD/colitis,HTN,smoking,High LDL/HDL etc are present in your history. So donot worry about anything.
Avatar f tn I quit smoking 4 weeks ago and am feeling better already, but, I still have this pain to my upper back, pain appears to be from deep within. I sleep on a heating pad for releaf. what could be the cause? This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/283527'>Upper back pain, chest congestion, cough</a>.
Avatar n tn I´m in Guatemala and had sever rt low back pain, I allowed a friend to give me an injection of Dolo-Neurobion (Diclofenac Sodium). She has no medical training and this injectable was purchased without RX. The back pain ceased but a new problem began in my rt leg. Started with hamstring cramping, moved to the calf and lateral boarder of the rt foot. Numbness/tingling accompanied the cramps. This has continued since Monday June 28.
Avatar n tn It could also be a muscle strain/ muscle pull at the site you describe and you should apply a diclofenac gel at the area and try hot fomentation - that should also be helpful.
Avatar f tn This past month I had all my pms symptoms as usual except that when my period started the soreness in my breast did not go away and my period lasted almost 6 days. I am now on day 10 of my cycle and my breast are still very sore and I've noticed some light spotting when I go to the bathroom. Has anyone experienced anything like this and found an answer for it?
Avatar n tn Try some antianxiety medication like alprazolam or propranolol and see if that helps. avoid alcohol or smoking. Try breathing exercises and yoga. Avoid stress, heavy workouts, strong lights and loud music. Adequate sleep is important. If the headaches still persist you need to rule out any vision related problems or sinusitis. IF you still have the symptoms consult a neurologist. Goodluck.
Avatar m tn i made HIV , HEPATITIS B , SYPHILIS ,HEPATISTIS C tests and all are negative after 3 months of exposure and i went to a physician and he told me those pimples are folliclitis and my tongue it`s from smoking and the pain in my testis is due to a prostate inflammation but this diagnosis is without further tests and he prescribed antibiotic amoxycillin +clavulunic acid 1 gm bid for 1 week and diclofenac 75mg bid for 2 weeks but i don`t feel better....
Avatar n tn I would suggest you to take antibiotics (like augmentin), analgesics (like Ibuprofen/ Diclofenac) and saline nasal drops to keep the area moist. Also avoid smoking.
Avatar f tn As of now, you can try taking mucolytics (ambroxyl/bromhexine), analgesics (like ibuprofen/diclofenac), saline nasal drops and steam inhalation. Also drink plenty of warm water. If you are smoking, please do refrain from it.
Avatar n tn You need to get yourself evaluated by a neurologist to reach a conclusive diagnosis to decide the management in your case. Till then you could try some OTC painkillers and antianxiety medication. Avoid alcohol and smoking and get your blood pressure checked too. For the swelling in your knees and hands you should try hot fomentation, local application of diclofenac gel. Also discuss this with your physician and see if he thinks you should get some xrays done.
Avatar m tn I made an urgent appointment with my primary doctor and he did a chest xray and EKG and decided that my heart is fine and that it's just a muscle strain. That cannot be true but he would not listen. I've been reading a lot of peoples' symptoms that are similar to mine and a lot of them have Congestive Heart Failure or Pericardial effusion. I don't know what to do from here. He prescribed Diclofenac Sodium for the supposed muscle strain.
Avatar f tn I have severe headaches for days at a time sometimes they are so bad my eyes swell shut or I see spots my face and jaw joints ache all the time. My ears hurt and click and some times I have deaf spells my jaw pops and clicks when chewing, talking, smiling, smoking or really anything that the requires me to use facial muscles. My assult was nearly 10yrs. Ago and because of my finaces I got my surgery at the school of dentistry I got medicial insurance 6yrs.
Avatar n tn (sorry for my bad english) 30 years old male - running nose and no sense of smell for the past 12 months. No asthma/smoking/alcohol/drugs/coffee. Does not seem to be location dependant (a few 5-days travels didn't affect it). After 4 visits to the MD (ie 4*5 minutes) and a ton of experimentation: Bacteria analysis (nose and throat) resulted clean. [for an unrelated condition I took two classes of antibiotics and they didn't affect my nose] I used to sleep 5-6 hours/day.
Avatar m tn And it seemed to have completly destabielised my vertebrae. The latest scan and EMG showed my neck is simply fusing, and deforming. And normally an EMG doesn't hurt, but the nerves are so damaged there is no signal. Numb fingers, legs constact headache. I'm 30 yo, the only thing I shouldn't have done was smoke. I have good days and bad. The problem is that since you can't see it, some doctor's dispute the amount of pain I'm in.
1958049 tn?1325097606 I am on a nebulizer, 4 x's a day. Gerds and larynx spasm have been mentioned and meds have been given for this. That was on the a week ago. The coughing is not making me weeze as much now, but is still extreme and causing a great deal of pain in my ribs and chest. I also have Scleroderma, so I'm wondering if the esophagus may be involved, since it seems to be coming from the upper area and not the lungs. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn NSAIDs presently on the market that have been frequently associated with liver injury are aspirin (ASA), diclofenac (Voltaren), and sulindac (Clinoril). Ibuprofen (Motrin) has been reported to cause severe liver injury in people with hepatitis C. A new generation of NSAIDs, known as the cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors, has recently been approved by the FDA.
Avatar n tn You also could apply local diclofenac or some other analgesic ge to the neck and back region. Try some neck and back exercises - they might help. Also try to sleep well. Avoid any alcohol or smoking. Also see if your headache is brought about by or increased due to any stress factors like loud noise, strong lights etc. It would be best to consult your family physician first and then a neurologist if the symptoms still persist.
441781 tn?1204844957 At the two weeks, I visited my doctor and he said looks good see you in four weeks and I was still no weight bearing. No explanation. I had to stop him from running out of the room to remind him that my foot was still not in walking position.He said not to worry because I would probably regain full motion in my ankle and he didn't see any need to change the cast. I went home and gradually started to feel better. I was happy because I felt like I was healing.
233488 tn?1310696703 Since most marathon runners believe their long hours exercising, sometimes logging over a hundred miles per week for years on end, creates a strong healthy heart, or at least does not damage this vital organ, this new information is perplexing and shocking. Nevertheless, daily and less strenuous exercise remains one of the most important facets of getting and staying healthy.

Avatar f tn I am having a hard time stopping and I know I need to . I have taken this for a long time. First, I was prescribed this med and then I found other ways to get it. Knowbody knows I take it as much as I do. Anyone....have some advice?
Avatar n tn I started taking Vicoprofen 4-5 weeks ago and I would take 1 in the morning and 1 at night and during the day if I was in pain I would take a little extra motrin. My neurologist gave it to me but when I ran out she did not want to give me anymore,, but she promiced she would. I was also on Robaxin which my neurologist said was a much better muscle relaxer then Flexaril.
