• Like other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), diclofenac is also contraindicated in patients in whom attacks of asthma, angiodema, urticaria or acute rhinitis are precipitated by ibuprofen, acetylsalicylic acid or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
Undesirable effects may be minimised by using the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration necessary to control symptoms.
•Adults: 75 mg to 150 mg daily in two or three divided doses. The recommended maximum daily dose of diclofenac sodium is 150mg.
•Children: This medicine is not suitable for children.
•Elderly: The elderly are at increased risk of the serious consequences of adverse reactions. If an NSAID is considered necessary, the lowest effective dose should be used and for the shortest possible duration. The patient should be monitored regularly for GI bleeding during NSAID therapy.
•Renal/Hepatic impairment: Diclofenac is contraindicated in patients with severe renal/hepatic impairment. No specific studies have been carried out in patients with renal impairment, therefore, no specific dose adjustment recommendations can be made. Caution is advised when administering diclofenac to patients with mild to moderate renal impairment.
