Pain relief Diclofenac Sodium Voltaren Suppositories

Uses
Voltaren Suppositories (Diclofenac Sodium) are indicated for the relief of pain. This medicine works by blocking prostaglandin production. Conditions for which it is indicated include arthritis, acute gout symptoms, periarthritis, tendinitis, back pain and other related conditions. Patients affected by acute pain caused by sprains, dislocations or fractures, as well as those who have undergone surgical procedures have also been treated with it. This medicine has antipyretic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

It achieves this by its inhibition of COX (cyclo-oxygenase, an enzyme which contributes to the production of prostaglandins), thereby relieving inflammation and pain. Suppositories are considered useful in cases when the medicine is not able to be administered orally, such as in patients who are sick and unable to eat or those who have just undergone a surgical procedure. Rectal administration allows for the active ingredients to be absorbed by the body so that the medicine can take effect.

Dosage and Administration
Voltaren Suppositories (Diclofenac Sodium) contain 100mg of the active ingredient. It is provided in the form of a suppository base for rectal administration. You should empty your bowels prior to insertion, and try to remain still for at least a few minutes after inserting it. Prior to using this medicine, it will be necessary to visit your doctor so that the correct dosage and frequency of administration can be determined. If you are not sure of the proper way in which to use it, you must ask your doctor. Do not make any changes to your dosage or take more than recommended, as this could result in serious side effects.
