Diclofenac Problems

Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) approved for treating a number of different conditions, including pain, migraines, and various types of arthritis. Although most people tolerate this drug well, it is possible to develop certain problems with diclofenac.
In clinical studies on diclofenac, problems that were commonly reported include nausea or vomiting, abdominal pain, ringing in the ears, and dizziness. In most cases, these side effects were mild and either did not require medical attention or were treated easily. Some of the potentially serious problems that may occur with diclofenac (that should be reported to your healthcare provider) include rapid weight gain, chest pain, and shortness of breath.
There are also a number of problems that have been reported with NSAIDs in general. All NSAIDs (including diclofenac) have been linked to cardiovascular events such as heart attack or stroke. They have also been reported to cause problems in the stomach and intestines, including bleeding (known as gastrointestinal bleeding), stomach ulcers, or holes in the stomach or intestines (called perforations).
