Frequently asked questions about Diclofenac Sodium

Diclofenac sodium delayed-release tablets (generic for Voltaren) are a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug - also known as NSAIDs - used to relieve the pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness caused by multiple forms of arthritis. They may also be used to treat mild-to-moderate pain and painful abdominal cramping during menstruation.

Diclofenac works by keeping your body from producing a substance that causes pain, fever, and inflammation. This helps you to live your life pain-free and do more of the things you love.

Diclofenac sodium is used to treat the symptoms of osteoarthritis (arthritis that is caused by a breakdown of the lining of the joints), rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis caused by swelling of the lining of joints), and ankylosing spondylitis (arthritis that mainly affects the spine). Your doctor may prescribe this medication for other uses as well, such as mild-to-moderate pain, and painful abdominal cramping during menstruation.

Diclofenac sodium belongs to a family of drugs known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). In short, diclofenac sodium targets COX-2, an enzyme in your body that is responsible for causing swelling, inflammation, and discomfort of the joints. By preventing this enzyme from triggering inflammation, it can help reduce and alleviate symptoms of arthritis and other pains.

Diclofenac sodium is occasionally associated with side effects. If the doctor has prescribed the use of this medication it is because they have deemed that its benefit to you is greater than the possibility of adverse effects. The most common side effects include upset stomach, nausea, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, gas, headache, drowsiness, and dizziness. Tell your doctor if any of these are severe or don’t go away.

Serious side effects are unlikely but can occur. Get immediate medical attention if you experience any hearing changes (such as ringing in your ears), mood changes, difficulty or pain swallowing, symptoms of heart failure (such as swelling in your hands/feet/ankles, unusual tiredness, or unexplained weight gain), signs of kidney problems (such as changes to the amount of urine you produce), an unexplained stiff neck, signs of liver disease (dark urine, persistent nausea/vomiting/loss of appetite, abdominal pain, or yellowing of your eyes/skin) or any symptoms of an allergic reaction (such as rash, hives, itching, swelling - particularly of the face, tongue, or throat - or trouble breathing or swallowing).

Diclofenac sodium may not be right for everyone. For more information on special precautions and possible adverse effects speak to your doctor.

WARNING: The use of NSAIDs such as diclofenac sodium may increase the risk of serious cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke. They may also increase the risk of adverse gastrointestinal events such as bleeding, ulceration, and perforation of the stomach or intestines.

This is not a complete list of side effects. For more information on adverse reactions associated with diclofenac sodium, please visit the National Institutes of Health’s DailyMed webpage.

It can take up to 2 weeks of consistent use before the full benefits of this medication take effect.

Diclofenac is available only with your doctor's prescription. The dosage prescribed will be based on your medical condition and your body’s response to treatment.

Diclofenac should be taken exactly as prescribed. Do not take more or less than the prescribed amount. Avoid taking Diclofenac with fruit juice, alcohol, and milk. These can decrease the absorption of Diclofenac. Do not stop taking Diclofenac without talking to your doctor.
