NSAID : Sampter's triad is allergy to aspirin, asthma, and nasal polyps . Since diclofenac is an nsaid, similar to aspirin, you were probably advised not to take it to avoid worsening sinus polyps and problems. If you don't have allergies to nsaids or asthma, you are probably ok to take it. Check with your doctor.
