How Diclofenac Sodium Injection Works

Diclofenac Sodium is a pain-relieving medication that belongs to a group of medicines called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs). It works by restricting certain chemical messengers (prostaglandins) in the brain that alert us about pain and are the major contributors to pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). It prevents an enzyme called Cyclooxygenase that is known responsible for the formation of prostaglandins.

Essential Precautionary Measures

Diclofenac Sodium Injection is administered by a healthcare expert and is not advised to be self-administered. With its high anti-inflammatory action, it becomes a highly potent medicine and thus, requires proper caution during usage. Following are some of the essential precautionary measures that must be taken while taking this injection for the best results:

  1. It is better to generally use the lowest effective dose of Diclofenac Sodium Injection for a shorter duration. With this, you will be able to carry out your everyday tasks more conveniently and have a better, more active life.
  2. If you are allergic to Diclofenac Sodium or any other pain-relieving medicines, inform your doctor before he administers the injection.
  3. When using this injection, limit the consumption of alcohol as excessive consumption of alcohol can lead to negative effects and can worsen the pain.
  4. Make sure to inform your doctor if you have a history of heart disease, stroke, asthma, impaired kidney/liver functions, etc.
  5. Diclofenac Sodium Injection may affect your vision ability and may cause dizziness or drowsiness. Thus, it is better to not drive or indulge in any activity that requires your complete attention until you know how the medicine affects you.
  6. It is strictly advised to not self-administer the injection and use it only under medical supervision to remain away from any unwanted negative effects.

Common Side Effects

Diclofenac Sodium Injection acts as a potent pain-reducing medicine that does not really cause any harmful side effects if used under the prescription of the doctor. However, incorrect usage or overdosage of the medicine may lead to certain side effects in some users.
