Is Diclofenac A Good Drug Used To Treat Toothache?
Afternoon … is the drug diclopenac potassium good to use for sufferers of toothache … thank you …
Good morning, thanks for the question
Potassium diclofenac is a class of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or non-steroidal anti-pain medications. Its use is to treat mild to moderate pain as well as to suppress inflammatory reactions in several conditions including inflammation in the teeth and gums. We recommend the consumption of this type of drug after eating to minimize side effects such as digestive disorders. If the complaint has improved, the drug does not need to be consumed again. Also avoid long-term use of NSAIDs without clear indications because of the risk of causing side effects in the form of gastric mucosal irritation until severe conditions can cause upper gastrointestinal bleeding characterized by complaints of abdominal pain accompanied by black stools. Carry out further consultation with your doctor if the complaint has not improved.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam.
