What Is Diclofenac Used For?
Diclofenac sodium is a medication used for relieving symptoms related to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. Diclofenac sodium belongs to a class of medications known as NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) - similar to ibuprofen, mefenamic acid and naproxen. As an NSAID, diclofenac's mechanism of action is thought to be related to blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins. Diclofenac has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effects. Diclofenac is not a corticosteroid medication and cannot be used as a replacement for corticosteroid withdrawal. The different formulations that diclofenac comes in gives it added utility as an analgesic agent.
Diclofenac Sodium - Dosage and Cost
Diclofenac is an orally administered tablet available in delayed-release form and belongs to a class of medications that derive from benzene-acetic acids. While fully absorbed after oral administration, only about half of the diclofenac dose ingested is available in the body. When taken with food, diclofenac tends to delay the onset of absorption. The majority of diclofenac is excreted in the urine with much of the remainder being excreted in the feces. Diclofenac sodium gel is relatively inexpensive, costing under $23 for 1 tube of 100 g diclofenac sodium 1% gel. Some insurance plans may cover the cost of diclofenac sodium prescriptions and diclofenac gel coupons may also be available online at times from the manufacturer or other sources. Diclofenac tablets are pink in color and available as diclofenac 75 mg tablets. Diclofenac tablets should not be stored above 30 ° C.
Can I Buy Diclofenac Online?
Diclofenac sodium OTC is available although many forms of diclofenac require a prescription to be dispensed in the United States. For prescription diclofenac, one cannot just buy diclofenac online. Instead, one needs to first consult with a medical provider about a diclofenac prescription. People who need a diclofenac cream prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe diclofenac if safe and appropriate to do so.
