The active component of the drug is a substance of non-steroid nature, which has a pronounced antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect. The main mechanism is the inhibition of the biological synthesis of prostaglandins, which play a leading role in the genesis of pain, inflammation and fever. This drug has no overwhelming effect on the biosynthesis of cartilage proteoglycans.

In the treatment of pathologies of rheumatic nature, the severity of pain, morning stiffness and swelling of the articular joints are significantly reduced, improvement of their functioning is noted.

In case of inflammation of postoperative or post-traumatic origin, the drug also has an analgesic effect. However, it is able to eliminate pain and reduce the severity of blood loss in primary dysmenorrhea. Suppresses migraine attacks.


Tablets, enteric-coated, after oral administration are completely absorbed in the intestine. In the event that the drug is taken during or immediately after a meal, its slow passage through the stomach is noted, but the amount of the active component that is absorbed does not change.

After a single dose of 50 mg of Voltaren, the maximum plasma concentration of diclofenac (1.5 μg / ml) is observed after 2 hours. The degree of absorption of the drug depends on the dose. With strict adherence to the intervals between tablets pills cumulation is not observed.

Communication with plasma proteins is 99.7% (99.4% with albumin). In synovial fluid, diclofenac reaches its maximum concentration 2-4 hours later than in plasma. The half-life of the drug in synovia is 3-6 hours.

Diclofenac is metabolized in the liver, with the formation of phenolic metabolites, which turn into glucuronide conjugates.

The total plasma clearance of the active component is 263 plus or minus 56 ml / min. The final half-life is 1-2 hours. T 1/2 metabolites - 1-3 hours. About 60% of the drug is excreted by the kidneys with urine, the rest - with feces.

With simultaneous use with other NSAIDs systemic action increases the frequency of adverse reactions from the digestive tract.

When interacting with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, the risk of gastric bleeding increases significantly.

Michele Buring: It is just another toxic garbage drug causing massive negative environmental devastation as well as being just plain bad for everybody. There are a multitude of safe natural alternatives which need to be used instead of this stupid drug. This drug is famous for having caused the death of multiple millions of birds - via the domino affect of its use in the environment. Look after your health intelligently. It’s always easy to find safe holistic remedies then go and get more of the drug industry garbage that’s causing iatrogenic premature death of millions. Stop enabling one of the most disgustingly corrupt industries on the face of this planet to continue it’s profiteering - and exploitation of everything and everybody.

I tried just taking as needed (as prescribed) but it's for my foot and since I'm on my feet a lot I need it more frequently. Thankful I won't need this for long (having surgery to fix the problem), because I am so so sleepy.
