Dr. Hans Jeppesen
Specializes in Internal Medicine
Avoid this NSAID: Diclofenac is an NSAID like ibuprofen and naproxen. If you have stomach problems like reflux, or worse a history of stomach ulcers, I would advise you to avoid NSAIDS. I advise all who take NSAIDS to take them with food to help protect the stomach and intestine. Regarding effects on blood pressure, NSAIDS have an effect on the kidneys that can lead to high blood pressure.
