Cataflam (diclofenac)

Recommended Posts

I had an appointment with the MA outpatient clinic yesterday. Discussed my joint and back pain. The result was that my doctor issued me a prescription for diclofenac NA (50 mg). I am just looking for something that will take the edge off and enable me to function. Has anyone had any luck with this medicine?

I have been taking them for years. I guess it helps. Suppost to take 2 a day. Do one a day. Does not help or hurt. No side effects for me. No good effects also.

I take that whenever I run out of Arthrotec.

Arthrotec is the same medication with a digestive tract calmer-downer, misoprostol, <> , added.

Diclofenac Sodium, 75mg, seems to work ok for me compared to other stuff that is supposed to do the same thing.

AND, it's been around since 1985 so the VA should be able to get it for anyone.

However, I can't take it without the misoprostol.

Going without puts me down in 2 days.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
