Were you looking for information about Diclofenac Sodium? Diklofenak is a common misspelling of diclofenac.

If you have pain, stiffness, or swelling caused by certain types of arthritis, your healthcare provider may recommend diclofenac sodium (Voltaren®, Voltaren®-XR). As part of a class of drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), this medication works by blocking the effects of certain hormones that cause pain and inflammation. As a result, it can help to relieve the symptoms of conditions such as osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and rheumatoid arthritis. Diclofenac comes in tablet form, and should only be taken for the shortest period of time necessary.
