653169 tn?1303449969 Does anyone have any experience with diclofenac? If so, does it work better than over the counter antiinflammatory drugs and does upset the stomach much?
Avatar m tn Naproxen -- not very well. I''ve been using Voltaren gel (diclofenac) on my toes and foot, which helps with symptoms. Also, I use a homeopathic cream, Traumeel, which helps swelling in the foot.

Avatar f tn My liver levels two years ago were normal. How can this happen? I have been in Diclofenac (Naproxen) medicine for 3 1/2 months as result of a foot injury. Do you think my abnormal levels could be related to this medicine? I'm so concerned.

4892388 tn?1360615568 Hello I'm a 34 yr old female a day I have had problems with my knee since 2000 and I have been in physical and aqua therapy,had cortisone injections,pain patch,electrolysis shocks,taken naproxen 500 and 550mg,tramadol,diclofenac with/ potassium,and even given 10 vicodin before for pain, and now they are going to remove the plica but say I can be in pain still afterwards even more pain is possible after that.
Avatar f tn I would go to the Hospital that has the Number one er rating and get checked out
Avatar f tn You also should communicate to your PCP that the Naproxen is not working. It works Peripherally. They should start you on diclofenac. Also ask for a transdermal compound consisting of Ketamine, NSAID, Anesthetic, Muscle relaxant if needed, and Neurolytic if needed. If I knew more about your current pain and injuries I could be more specific. If you are not on antidepressants, ask them for Tramadol with Acetaminophen, which would be much more appropriate.
Avatar m tn If you have high blood pressure, it is best to avoid NSAIDs, such as diclofenac, aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, etc. May need to consider other pain medications for your osteoarthritis if your blood pressure is not well controlled. 5. Atenolol may not be the best anti-hypertensive medication for patients with history of depression. Good luck! For more information, please go to: 1. Paroxetine - Medline Plus http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a698032.html 2.
Avatar n tn after breakfast Naproxen 500mg I tablet. After lunch (1) colchicine (1) naproxen. at bedtime again (1) colchicine, (1)naproxen. 2nd day (1) colchicine and if swollen is present take the naproxen. I can't eat red meats, or alcohol without noticing the next 18-24 hours that gout flares are developing. therefore, if I know ahead of time that a steak and wine is going to be for dinner, I go ahead and take the colchicine before heading to the steakhouse.
Avatar f tn You can also massage some diclofenac ointment preparations. You have to follow proper ergonomics and also the proper way you use the keyboard to give relief to your fingers. Give some rest between works and do some stretching exercises with fingers. If you are suffering from long term and have this morning stiffness we would advise you to go to a Rheumatologist. You have to check for Rheumatoid factor and go for an X-ray for diagnosis of Arthritis. What other symptoms do you face?

Avatar m tn Hello! You can use diclofenac skin patches to get a sustained relief from pain. Also take intermittent ibuprofen and naproxen for the pain. Rest and do not exert yourself and do not do any weight bearing. Keep your feet elevated on a pillow during sleep. If the pain and inflammation continue then follow up with your orthopedician for a pain prescription. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hi, There are other NSAIDS other than diclofenac that can be used in the treatment of gout. These include indomethacin and naproxen. Even paracetamol (acetaminophen) can provide pain relief in a gout attack. If your father has been prescribed a medication called dutasteride for treatment of the BPH, it is possible that the diclofenac was interacting with it and leading to his problems with urination.
453731 tn?1225203108 You should not take acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin, or NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) unless your doctor has told you to. NSAIDs include celecoxib (Celebrex), diclofenac (Voltaren), ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), indomethacin, naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), piroxicam (Feldene), and others. These medicines may affect blood clotting and could cause serious bleeding in your stomach or intestines. Avoid sudden changes in your diet. Vitamin K decreases the effects of Coumadin.
Avatar f tn I still have no other symptoms today and the fever is either gone or controlled with the Rx diclofenac(anti-inflammatory like naproxen). I am beginning to wonder if I might have experienced this before if it were not for the medication that I take regularly except for yesterday when I tried to see how I felt without it. Just wondering if anyone has some advice for me... Thanks for reading this long, wordy post!! Be well!
4851983 tn?1483083262 I am also on prednisone and before the prednisone I was on diclofenac. But nothing is working. I am just getting worse. The doctor I just seen yesterday says that I have cartilage building up in my chest and its not stopped. I have a ping pong ball sized lump in the bottom of my chest in the center on my sternum. It goes all the way up but not as bad. The ER doctor said I needed to see an orthopedic. That they need to give me injections.
Avatar m tn since this started i have had 5 courses of antibiotics (Cipro and Doxy), various anti inflammatory (naproxen, diclofenac, ibuprofen) and i have constantly been taking tramadol (up to 400mg per day). it is so bad I cannot work or even sit in a car while my partner drives me to each appointment. I am currently waiting for an MRI scan which will probably show nothing again i just find it hard to believe that the NHS can leave me like this and say there is nothing they can do.
Avatar n tn Is A Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Agent (NSAID) Reasons not to take this medicine If you have an allergy to aspirin, other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs(NSAIDs), diclofenac, or any other part of the medicine. A few examples of NSAIDs are ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofenac, nabumetone, and ketoprofen. If you have porphyria. If you are more than 24 weeks pregnant. What is this medicine used for?
222267 tn?1253305810 A long acting one might be best to help you get up easier in the mornings. I take a drug called Naproxen 1000mg, it lasts all day long and is very strong. There are also other strong NSAIDS that you could try like Diclofenac and Indocid etc. You will need a Dr to write a script for those. I'm not suggesting that you take these on my advice alone, but you might want to talk to your Dr about them.
Avatar f tn there are of course other pills that are not addicting ibuprofen (can cause stomach bleeding, aleve which if you go to a doctor they can give you naproxen in higher doses, which is the active ingredient in aleve, same with ibuprofen it can be prescribed in highrer doses, but i would check with a doctor first for sure.

Avatar n tn He changed her NSAID from diclofenac to Naproxen. She is still anaemic (9.2) and her ESR is still high (140). He said Sulfasalazine generally takes 3 months to act hence we will have to wait for another 1 month. Then he also suggested her to take Steroid shots in her knee and elbow. She is not at all willing to take that as she is afraid that her body might get used to this and will be life long dependant on it. She is also afrad about the side effects.
Avatar f tn For pain meds, he has Naprosyn (naproxen suspension) and Diclofenac gel (higher concentration for ortho issues), and the usual over-th-counter - Advil/Tylenol. I don't offer meds when I notice discomfort anymore. I try to wait until he asks. (unless he's reduced to hopping on one foot). It's a tricky balance between feeling like I'm letting him suffer vs. giving a little guy too much meds. Also, he's a typical kid.
