Stomach Aches After Taking Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDS).?
Doctor, I have heel pain and have been given potassium medicine for diclofenac, vanbe and mecobalamin. The doctor said it could affect my stomach. Indeed, I feel my stomach is sore.
Hello Ossy835t, thank you for asking on the HealthReplies.com forum.
Based on the medicines you wrote above, the potassium diclofenac drug is the most common side effect of gastric disorders because it is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID).
This class of drugs works by inhibiting certain enzymes that trigger the process of inflammation, but this drug because it is still not selective enough, can also inhibit other similar enzymes that cause interference with the production of gastric protective fluid which results in side effects in the form of disorders of the stomach.
If your complaints continue to be felt and severe, you should consult with your doctor again to overcome the side effects caused.
I hope this helps.
