Duration Of Taking The Potassium Drug Diclofenac?
Good evening doctor. I once had a toothache and was given potassium diclofenac 25mg by the hospital. The drug is dated 12/16/2017. And now I have never taken the drug, but recently I felt pain in my teeth again. Can I still take this 25mg diclofenac potassium? Thanks.
Diclofenac potassium is a drug class NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Diclofenac potassium can be used to help relieve inflammation, or to treat pain of moderate to severe intensity.
For what indication are you currently taking the drug?
If indeed your current condition feels the same as your previous illness, then you can temporarily take the drug according to the dosage rules given by your previous hospital.
consuming diclofenac can cause some side effects such as nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, allergies.
but it is still recommended that you do a direct examination of the doctor so that the doctor can check your condition directly, so that the doctor can provide the right therapy for you.
