In brief: See below

Diclofenac sodium is a strong NSAID - non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (like Ibuprofen or naproxen) which can reduce inflammation and pain but has many serious potential side effects and interactions with other drugs.
Talk to you physician about these and you medical conditions before even considering taking this medicine.
