Avatar n tn Diclofenac is an NSAID, not a narcotic, so you should be fine.
513154 tn?1340225289 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 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.
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?1327841500 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.
557111 tn?1219712047 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.
473384 tn?1210206242 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.
Avatar f tn Is anyone on Diclofenac? I am on it for an orthopedic condition and have been on it almost 4 weeks. It works, but am unsure how long I will be on it. As short a time as possible, I hope,...but, I was wondering....for those with arthritis (which it usually prescribed for,,).....are you on it daily? As an ongoing medication? I hope to go off it to avoid risks with prolonged usage,but up to now...it has not caused me any problems.
653169 tn?1303446369 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?
230262 tn?1316645934 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).
Avatar m tn I think I need the strong stuff like diclofenac and B12 and b6. There is a pills called OKA B that I use to take when having muscle pain and it took pains away. But I've heard that diclofenac is not good to take during tx. Has anyone taken diclofenac during tx or is it too bad for the liver.

Avatar n tn I have a child having G6PD he is 9 month old can I give him diclofenac suppositories to remove fever
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 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 And please remember, that if you see multiple doctors, you should let them know all medications you take including anything over the counter such as aspirin. Here is information regarding diclofenac gel. https://www.drugs.com/voltaren-gel.html. Diclofenac is voltaren and the gel contains the Nsaid. This information states clearly that aspirin should not be used at the same time. Normally, blood thinners are also not used with Nsaids.
Avatar m tn This is a varicocele surgery on his testicles. He had a high fever a few hours ago. I injected diclofenac 75mg in his muscle due to his request. After that, I read about something like "Do not take diclofenac at least 7 days before a surgery". This is about the risk of bleeding, right? So, if his surgeon say that it will be ok, can we trust him? I'm freaking out. Please tell me what should I do. Thanks a lot.
880900 tn?1467270141 Hi folks! Have any of you used Diclofenac or Voltarin Gel for relief from general pain on thighs, etc.(and other large areas ... LOL? What was your experience? Did it actually relieve any of your pain? I've used the tablet form, but it made me sick to my stomach. Is this likely to do the same? Thanks for your help.
