Voveran is an NSAID or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug which lowers pain and inflammation-causing substances in the body. It is prescribed or used mainly for treating rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, or ankylosing spondylitis.
Diclofenac Sodium is the main ingredient in Voveran. Its usage may lead to life-threatening heart or circulatory problems such as heart attack or stroke, especially if taken for a prolonged period. This medication is not recommended just before or after a heart bypass surgery. You must seek emergency medical attention if you have chest pain, weakness, shortness of breath, slurred speech, or difficulties in vision or balance after taking Diclofenac Sodium.
Diclofenac Sodium may also severely impact the stomach or intestines by causing bleeding or perforation. Inform your doctor immediately if you witness stomach and intestinal bleeding symptoms such as black, bloody, or tarry stools, bloody cough or vomit resembling coffee grounds. These effects can be dangerous and fatal and come up without warning while on Diclofenac Sodium treatment. The risk is high, especially in older adults. Avoid alcohol while taking this medication, as alcohol can complicate the conditions and put you at a higher risk of bleeding.
Diclofenac Sodium is an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Some common medications also contain NSAIDs, so if you are already using them, taking Diclofenac Sodium along with them will lead to too much NSAID in your body. Read the labels of those medicines carefully if they contain NSAIDs such as aspirin, ibuprofen, ketoprofen, or naproxen.
Diclofenac Sodium is an FDA pregnancy category D drug. This medication can harm an unborn baby if taken during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Diclofenac Sodium is not recommended for children under 18 without proper medical advice.
Before taking Diclofenac Sodium
Do not take Voveran if you are allergic to it or have allergies to other NSAIDs like aspirin. To ensure the safe use of Diclofenac Sodium medication, let your doctor know in advance if you have any of these conditions: asthma; polyps in your nose; porphyria; bleeding or blood clotting disorder; if you smoke; if you have a history of heart attack, stroke, or blood clot; liver or kidney disease; heart disease, congestive heart failure, high blood pressure, or a history of stomach ulcers or bleeding.
Some drugs can interact with Diclofenac Sodium. Let your doctor know in advance if you are using any of these interacting drugs presently: blood thinner like warfarin, cyclosporine, digoxin, diuretic, insulin or oral diabetes medications, isoniazid, probenecid, rifampin, secobarbital, teniposide, sertraline, sulfamethoxazole, lithium, methotrexate, steroids, zafirlukast, aspirin or other NSAIDs, heart or blood pressure drugs like benazepril, ramipril or others, or cholesterol-lowering medicine such as fenofibrate or others.
Diclofenac Sodium gastro medication, like all medications, has the potential to cause side effects. Some common side effects of this medication are black, bloody or tarry stools; bloody cough or vomit that looks like coffee grounds; increased blood pressure; diarrhea; upset stomach; nausea; heartburn; stomach pain; constipation; or drowsiness.
The side effects mentioned above are not the only ones; there may be other side effects which may be rare and serious. Seek medical attention immediately if you get serious side effects with this medicine.
Your doctor will fix the Diclofenac Sodium dosage after examining you properly. Dosage may depend on a range of factors like age, sex, drug allergies, or seriousness of the condition, among several other factors. Stick to your doctor’s prescription strictly. Do not alter the dosage unless your doctor advises you to do so. Also, do not take this medication after the prescribed period is over.
Avoid crushing, breaking, or chewing a Diclofenac Sodium extended-release tablet, as doing so may lead to too much of the medicine being released at once. Instead, swallow it whole. Do the same with the enteric-coated tablet with a special stomach protection coating. Breaking an enteric-coated tablet can damage that coating. Always store Diclofenac Sodium medication in a cool and dry place.
