What is 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.
