On this podcast episode, I discuss diclofenac pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions, and much more.
Diclofenac is one of the highest-risk NSAIDs when it comes to cardiovascular risk. You can find more information on this in the Meded101 NSAID comparison table.
Diclofenac carries two boxed warnings. One is for GI bleed risk and the other is for cardiovascular risks.
Anticoagulants, antiplatelets, diuretics, and ACEs/ARBs are all common medication classes that can interact with diclofenac.
