Diclofenac Diethylamine Gel
I am 25 weeks pregnant and used diclofenac diethylamine gel for my bach ache for three nights, later realising it is not safe I stopped. Is my baby safe?
Yes: Do not worry, your baby is fully formed and the risk is very, very small.See 2 more doctor answers
Pain on my middle back right side, which I can feel while twisting n bending. Get relief by n only while applying gel diclofenac diethylamine. Any cure?
See your doctor: With persistent symptoms such as these, your best bet is to see your doctor so he/she can examine you.
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. Taking more than recommended causes more problems.
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).
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.
Voltaren (diclofenac) gel through my ins co is so expensive, what can I use that is just as good?
This is not treating: The problem, it is only decreasing the inflammation & U may feel better, but in the long run U should look 2 repair.
How long does diclofenac (Voltaren gel) stay in your system? I use less than 1 gram for the day. Thank you!
Voltaren: I am not sure if you used patch or just gel/solution. Maximum it can work for 14-20 hours with single application.
