NSAIDS side effects: Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal drug and nearly all can cause gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, heartburn, ulcers, diarrhea, and GI hemorrhage. They can also cause tinnitus, vertigo and hearing loss. They can cause kidney problems in susceptible people, and they can cause liver enzyme elevations.

Is diclofenac diethylamine ointment safe for me in third trimester? I use it for pain as per doctor's prescription.

Is diclofenac diethylamine ointment safe for me in third trimester? I use it for pain as per doctor's prescription.

No.: Any NSAID use could constrict the ductus arteriosus causing pulmonary hypertension to the fetus, or decrease the renal perfusion and lead to oligohydramnios. Even transdermal application (especially with the vasodilatation of late pregnancy) can result in significant concentrations in the maternal/fetal blood. Use icy-hot patch with simultaneous tylenol (acetaminophen) 1000 mg + Reglan 10 mg instead (+/- codeine).

Any suggestions on which gel is better for treating pain: a diclofenac gel or an etofenamate gel?

Any suggestions on which gel is better for treating pain: a diclofenac gel or an etofenamate gel?

Similar: Studies have shown that about 40-60 % of people with pain from due to Osteoarthritis or Sports Injuries felt they had a good - excellent relief of symptoms when using one of the gels. There are no "head to head" studies comparing one gel vs the other for the same type of problem. You could try one and, if you don't see a meaningful benefit after 3-6 days, then switch to other.
