Diclord review

Diclord is marketed as Voltaren, Diclon Voltarol, the Flector patch, Zolterol, Vetagesic, Deflamat, Dedolor, Arthrotec, Voveran, Olfen, Abitren, Modifenac, Rhumalgan, Panamore, Pennsaid, Difene, Difen, and Dicloflex. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication or NSAID given to patients suffering from inflammation and as an analgesic to reduce pain in conditions such as acute injury or arthritis. It can also be used to decrease dymenorrhea or menstrual pain. The generic name of this medication comes from its chemical name, 2-(2,6-dichloranilino) phenylacetic acid.

In the United States, India, and the United Kingdom, Diclord is given as either sodium or potassium salt—in China, it is often distributed as sodium salt, and in other countries it's only available only as potassium salt. Diclord is available in various formulations. Over the counter (OTC) use has been approved in some countries.

The maximum dose is 150 milligrams per day. The tablets should be taken whole without crushing or chewing and taken with food. 100 to 150 milligrams is the standard daily dose range. In mild cases, Diclord treatment should be started with 75 to 100 milligrams a day.

The daily dose of Diclord should be divided into two or three doses due to the action of one single dose being much longer— six to eight hours—than the very short half-life the medication indicates. Part of the reason is a high concentration achieved in synovial fluids.

NSAIDs like Diclord can increase your chances of life-threatening blood circulation and heart ailments, including stroke and myocardial infarction. This risk increases the longer you take Diclord-based products or any other NSAIDs. You should not take Diclord just before or after having coronary artery bypass graft/CABG/heart bypass surgery.

NSAIDs can cause serious side effects including bleeding and perforation of the intestines or stomach. These ailments can be deadly and gastrointestinal maladies can happen without any warning while you're undergoing NSAID treatment. Older adults and the elderly have a greater chance of getting these severe sicknesses as well.

You shouldn't use any OTC medicaments for pain, cold, or atopy without consulting your pharmacist or physician. Many medicaments available over the counter contain aspirin or medicines like Diclord such as naproxen, ketoprofen, and ibuprofen. If you take certain products with Diclord, you may accidentally take too much of this type of medication and suffer an overdose. You must read the label of any other medicine you're taking to see if it contains naproxen, ketoprofen, ibuprofen, or aspirin.

You cannot drink any alcoholic beverages when taking this medication. Alcohol can increase your chances of stomach bleeding. You must limit your exposure to sunlight or artificial ultraviolet rays from tanning beds or sunlamps while undergoing Diclord treatment. This medicine can make your skin more photosensitive, thus resulting in a propensity to burn.

If you develop symptoms of heart or circulation problems such as chest pain, problems with vision or balance, slurred speech, shortness of breath, and bodily weakness, seek emergency medical attention. Diclord can increase your risk of getting a sickness of the stomach or intestine, including internal bleeding or perforation of the stomach or intestinal walls. These maladies may prove fatal and can occur without warning while you continue taking Diclord.

The elderly must be wary of taking this medication, because they are more susceptible to its side effect, particularly gastrointestinal conditions. In any case, contact your physician if you have symptoms of stomach or intestinal bleeding, which includes coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds and expelling black, bloody, or tarry stools.
