What is Diclofenac Potassium

DiclofenacThe Generic name of this drug
Treatment SummaryDiclofenac is a type of anti-inflammatory medication used to reduce pain and inflammation caused by a variety of conditions. It works by blocking enzymes that produce hormones that cause inflammation and pain. It is often used as a first-line treatment for acute and chronic pain, and is sometimes taken in combination with another drug to prevent stomach ulcers. Diclofenac was first approved by the FDA in 1988 and is sold under the brand name Voltaren.

Effectiveness

How Diclofenac Potassium Affects PatientsDiclofenac is used to reduce pain, inflammation, and fever. However, it can also increase the chances of developing a stomach ulcer because it reduces the amount of protective mucus in the stomach.
How Diclofenac Potassium works in the bodyDiclofenac works by blocking the enzymes responsible for producing prostaglandin molecules. These molecules are responsible for pain and inflammation, so when they are blocked, the pain and inflammation is reduced. Diclofenac also reduces sensitivity to heat and other stimuli, as well as preventing white blood cells from flowing to sites of inflammation. It also reduces the activity of NF-Kappa B, a contributor to cancer, and stops tumor suppressor proteins from leaving the cell. Finally, it stops the activity of neurons in the hypothalamus that create a fever. All of these effects work together to reduce pain and inflammation caused
