Practice News and Notices
DICLOFENIC We have received guidance recently concerning the use of the anti-inflamatory Diclofenac, one of a group of important medicines (anti-inflammatory medicines) used to treat arthritis, and other conditions that cause pain and inflammation. As with any medicine, diclofenac may cause side effects in some people. Most side effects are mild, but very rarely they can be serious.
Research has shown that the risk of some heart and blood vessel problems may be higher with diclofenac (when taken by mouth) than with some alternative anti-inflammatories. If you are taking diclofenac (tables, capsules, or suppositories) and you have a condition such as heart failure, other heart disease (eg, angina), circulatory problems causing leg pain, or if you have had a heart attack or stroke, your GP will review its continued use with you at your next routine appointment and recommend an alternative treatment. If you have any concerns, please make an appointment. Further information is available here http://www.mhra.gov.uk/home/groups/comms-po/documents/news/con287044.p... and for more details, a patient information leaflet is available on request at reception.
