Diclofenac Potassium Vs Diclofenac Sodium
What is the difference between diclofenac sodium and diclofenac potassium? And can be given for a person with hypertension?

Hi strong lower back pain am on diclofenac sodium 50mg, panadeine forte & tramadol 50mg & still strong pain is it ok to take oxycodone 5mg as well?
