Hi I am having my lap tomorrow but before I forget I wanted to ask about Diclofenac. Last time I asked for a repeat prescription for Diclofenac, my GP said it is banned since Christmas as the risk of heat attack is high. I had some left from last year and it was running out. Diclofenac is one of the painkiller which works better for me. He had to push me Naproxen but they aren't as effective as Diclofenac.
I think I need more Diclofenac after the lap. I am not sure if I can cope with Naproxen (with co-codamol or solpadole). When I had a lap last year my hospital was going to give me a box of Diclofenac but I had some at home so I refused it .
Is Diclofenac ban a national thing? I feel in two ways that if it is that risky as GP stopped prescription I shouldn't take them but what else works for me?
I have Tramadol but it space me out. Maybe it is OK after the lap as I need rest but I get very nauseous too.
Have you been getting Diclofenac?
