AVOID THIS PAINKILLER. IT CAN LEAD TO HEART FAILURE
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) other than aspirin, such diclofenac, may increase a person’s chance of having a heart attack or stroke compared to a person who does not take them. These occurrences could be fatal and could occur suddenly.
If you take diclofenac tablets and capsules frequently or in high amounts, they may also result in stomach or intestinal ulcers.
If you take very large amounts (150 mg per day) over an extended period of time, there is a tiny chance of developing heart failure or kidney failure.
Researchers showed that commencing diclofenac throughout the study period (1996-2016) was associated with an elevated rate of significant adverse cardiovascular events within 30 days after taking into account potential influencing factors.
According to the researchers, diclofenac should only be available with a doctor’s prescription and come with warning labels on the package so that people are aware of the risk before taking the medication.
