Can anyone tell me anything about Diclofenac?
As an anti-inflammatory I found it very helpful for my back problems.
When I got RA I was taken off of Diclofenac and given something else which did nothing. During my eight months without appointment, my GP put me back on it twice daily and I did feel better, however last month her computer flashed up that Diclofenac reduced the effects of MTX so she took me off of it.
I still had some in the drawer and took a couple yesterday in desperation. today I am mobile, had a 5 minute shower this morning, rather than the eons spent trying to get everything warmed up and moving.
If the Diclofenac affects the MTX maybe I should stop MTX and take Diclofenac.
GP also said that Diclofenac would cause stomach problems...maybe I replied but at least I will be able to walk to the toilet and wipe my own backside!!
Any views, tips, advice?
