What Is Diclofenac?

Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). This medicine works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation. Diclofenac is used to treat mild to moderate pain or the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis but is especially useful when used to treat the symptoms of gout.

How does it work?

Diclofenac is a Non-steroidal compound with marked anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic properties. The Inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis, which has been experimentally demonstrated, is considered that has an important relationship with its mechanism of action. Prostaglandins play a role essential in the appearance of inflammation, pain, and fever.  Diclofenac sodium does not suppress proteoglycan biosynthesis in cartilage in vitro, at concentrations equivalent to those achieved in humans.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Diclofenac can be used to treat the inflammatory symptoms caused by an acute attach of gout. Diclofenac does not treat the cause of gout but helps to relieve the often-painful symptoms associated with the condition.

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this anti-inflammatory medication exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If in doubt, consult your doctor or pharmacist again. Your prescriber will have determined what dose of this medicine is appropriate for your individual clinical circumstances.
