My doctor just put me on diclofenac for my hip. I'm starting to get dizzy spells at times. What can I do to help get over the dizzy spells?

In brief: Diclofenac

Are you diabetic? Do you take any other medications? The diclofenac can cause dizziness by itself or because of an interaction with another medicine.
Discuss this side effect with your doc; he may change to a gel form that you apply to the skin around your hip, or he may choose a different NSAID altogether.
