Diclofenac narcotic

Common Questions and Answers about Diclofenac narcotic


Avatar n tn Diclofenac is an NSAID, not a narcotic, so you should be fine.
Avatar f tn Question. I have started taking Diclofenac 75mg x's 2 a day to try and see if a non narcotic medication may give me some relief long term with my rib pain. I have taken it for 2 weeks and at first I didn't think it was helping at all. Now I think 1 of 2 things either A) it's starting to build up in my system and is helping better or B) My ribs just happen to feel a bit better lately. I already know all the technical information on how the drug works, is released, what it's used for etc.
Avatar f tn But if your like me, you probably want all you can to help with detoxing, so.... Try diclofenac for the aches associated with dt's if you can get it. I don't know if it will help through the night (which for me is the worst) but I know I'm able to sit at my desk all day without hammering a hole in the ground with my foot when I take it. It's a non-steroid anti-inflamatory like ibprofren except stonger. It's non narcotic and not an opiat. It will not make you feel any different (drowsy etc.
230262 tn?1316649534 does anyone have some useful suggestions for what non narcotic drug would be best for severe knee pain? My knees have been hurting really bad for some time now, although in the big picture, its a fairly new symptom compared to my nagging back thats been bad for many years. Anyways, I cant take narcotics because I became addicted to them and fought hard to get off them and it still is a struggle often for me (cravings, suffering with pain still but cant take narcs etc).
513154 tn?1340228889 Tramadol is not classified as a narcotic, however, it is as close to narcotic as any other narcotic, so if you are looking for a non-habit forming drug or something with less side effect from a narcotic, Ultram/tramadol may not be the route to take. NSAID have been shown to be effective with osteoarthritis.
Avatar n tn 5 mg of hydrocodone which is the opioid (narcotic) component and 325 mg of acetaminophen (tylenol). Diclofenac is a strong NSAID (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). These two medications are in totally different classes...one is a opioid and the other is an NSAID. Strictly based on pharmacology, the hydrocodone/acetaminophen is stronger. However, these two medicines should really not be compared in that fashion as they each work better than the other for different types of ailments.
1524673 tn?1327845100 My neuro prescribed a drug called Cambie, which is Diclofenac potassium, although not a narcotic it totally messes me up. My neuro and my endo have not communicated yet. All of this has happened very quickly. So I just wanted to be sure it was OK for me to take the Cambia due to my low cortisol levels. I have avoided taking it after I looked up low cortisol and the inability of my body to rid itself of potassium. As to the symptoms you described I am very familiar with them.
473384 tn?1210209842 No offence is meant here but I would like to know if the diclofenac meds were taking care of your pain, then why did you have to use the Narcotic Meds also? Or did you mean you took the Narcotics instead of the NSAID because you needed to stop the NSAIDs before surgery? I also have OA badly in both knees. I have just been Rx'd that NSAID and I only take one a day 75mg because I am afraid of stomach upset.
557111 tn?1219715647 I don't know what type of pain you suffer from but there is a drug called Diclofenac that I use along with my other medications. Diclofenac is non-narcotic it is an NSAID. It takes awhile to build up in your system but when it does I and others have found that it can be very effective especially for any kind of bone/muscle/joint pain because it builds up in synovial fluid. It may be worth talking to your doctor about it. I take 75mg’s AM & PM. You come to the Dr.
1738259 tn?1310723978 I have already consulted to top most orthopedics of kanpur but everything has gone in vain so please solve my problem. Medicines Used- Piroxicam,Diclofenac Pottassium, Tripsin chynotripsin,Aceclofenac as a part of medication.
473384 tn?1210209842 like that was going to last!). 6 months ago I started taking diclofenac (an NSAID) and apparantly it works REALLY WELL for pain b/c I am supposed to stop taking it 7-10 days before surgery b/c of bleeding issues. I stopped it last week and OMG I can't believe how bad my pain became. I could not even walk, could not get comfortable in bed to sleep, etc etc etc.
5639849 tn?1372350483 Many states have made tramadol a scheduled narcotic, and many more are following suit. They also have an antidepressant property (they effect the neurotransmitter GABA) which can make the emotional aspect of w/d even more severe. If you have pain that needs addressed, I would ask for alternatives, IMO.
Avatar m tn After many failed therapies and medicines such as Tramadol, Diclofenac, most NSAIDs, anti-depressants (Cymbalta, Zoloft), Lyrica, steroid injections (Kenalog, Depo Medrol), and Skelaxin, I believe it's time to see a pain specialist, someone who know what they're talking about when it comes to pain. I tried some of my left over hydrocodone from my wisdom teeth extraction, and its the only thing that has helped, and I didn't notice any bad side effects like many people say.
Avatar n tn Robaxin is a muscle relaxer. I don't think it is a narcotic. The other one not sure.
Avatar m tn Anyway, when I took it to the pharmacy, all of the medications was controlled substances, percocet, sonata, and diclofenac. I was shcoked but the pharmacist tech already scanned it and I trust the FNP. I always go to this same pharmacy and never had a problem filling my prescriptions and my disabled problem. The pharmacist was even willing to fill the diclofenac at the time. I decline and told her I would pick them up Monday when all 3 were ready and I this didn't fill right.

Avatar m tn The last one I went to tried to sell my 25mg of Diclofenac, like a normal person would take for backpain. Nice, coming of 80 mg oxycontin at the weekend. I have a presciption for heat thearpy at a specifi wavelength and intensity, but try to find someone who can still do that. I'm a great believer in evideced based medicine, what would your opinion be?
Avatar n tn Doctors don't get too comfy prescribing restricted narcotic medications until they have a good handful of visits to get to know you better. Pain meds only treat the symptoms of your condition, not the cause, so newer doctors, like a Doctor of Osteopathics (D.
Avatar f tn do you have access to diclofenac? it is an anti-inflamatory med with no addiction problems. i was just given a recipe for mixing it witha lotion and rubbing it into the skin to relieve pain. trying it right now. if you can control the pain with something like that, after the wd's, and even during, it would be great. if you can get them, barely cover 20 75 mg pills with water. or 30 50 mg pills if that is what you can get. let them set over night and disolve.
Avatar f tn If that's what the problem is, the doc can give you clonodine, to lower the pressure - it will make you feel better overall and is not a narcotic so it wont set you back. Please do go to a doc, there may be other things that he can do to help.
Avatar m tn Being so dependent on these meds for my sheer happiness made me ask my Dr for another pain management medicine (non-narcotic, opiate, etc) - which I have, and are working in a decent manner. To top it off, I have another medical issue which will (2-3 times a month) get triggered. I'll end up taking 2 norco for it and it will be gone for a while until it gets triggered again.
Avatar f tn Ellie is right that about different drugs not working. I've never tried Skelaxin but I am under the impression it's similar to flexeril and soma. Flexeril offers me a small amount of relief, and soma offers me about 10x that amt however I developed an addiction to the soma and had to get off of it. my pain mgmt doctor has suggested Voltaren Gel (also called "diclofenac", it's an NSAID) and it goes on the skin. I have to take ambien or unisom to sleep most nights.
Avatar f tn to prescribe you something like Tramadol, it's non narcotic. I think your Dr. might think you have fibromyalgia. I have that along with a slew of other issues, but I never had the tingling like you've described. They also might need to do some nerve conduction studies. I forgot to mention that before. All it is is a test where they see how fast an electronic pulse travels from point A to point B on different areas of your body. Anyhow, let me know what happens after your Dr's appt tomorrow.
Avatar f tn I have been in SO MUCH PAIN since I stopped, not even increasing my narcs touches it. so this tells me that the diclofenac was doing a LOT to control my pain. diclofenac is the drug name. the brand names are voltaren & cataflam. you can get it OTC in australia, new zealand etc in 25 mg instant release -- works great, 3X a day. I was taking 50mgs (prescribed here in the states) 3X/day. don't get the extended release -- it didn't work as well and tore up my stomach.
449236 tn?1220570314 That has to be tough being a chef! There are many non narcotic prescription meds out there. Maybe you can talk to your doctor about some of them. If one doesn't work, try another. Some meds that work for one may not work for another. Hope you get to feeling better soon!
Avatar n tn If you have a doctor you can call, there's a couple of non-narcotic, non-addictive medications you can ask for. One is Atarax (generic name hydroxyzine). It's an antihistamine that helps with anxiety. Clonidine will help as well. Both are available as generics and is dirt cheap. It does get better as time goes by. I know it doesn't help to just hear that. You can also try Valerian root from a GNC store. It's a herbal remedy and has mixed results...but it may help you.
Avatar f tn I'm hopeful that a good physio will help you. Voltaren (diclofenac) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which should be helping inflammation. While this works for many it's not effective for everyone. We all respond differently to medications. There are other choices that may be better suited for you. Discuss this with your Pharmacist or PCP. Tramadol is a less potent opiate than many others. Physicians still prefer to RX it over more potent ones.
Avatar m tn 1 month scrip of the Percocet worked well, wasn't a cure, but definitely allowed me to get a LOT of work done on my new house, with only minor discomfort. PCP unhappy that I had been prescribed 'narcotic medication' and will not refill the scrip, even though I had responsibly taken them (only on an as needed basis, instead of everyday). Refers me to a Pain Management Specialist. Pain Management also unhappy about the evil evil 'narcotic medicine' and will not continue that treatment.
981443 tn?1250119402 One cause is unusual conditions in the upper and middle GI tract such as that created by misoprostol and Arthrotec (misoprostol plus diclofenac), Amongst other things, misoprostol is a smooth muscle agent which both a contact and systemic mucousagogue which coats the stomach and adjacent areas with increasing amounts of mucus. This can result in everything from even slower onset of action to intact tablets being passed with stool.
