Diclofenac sodium (Voltaren®, Voltaren®-XR) is a medication licensed to relieve pain, stiffness, and swelling caused by various forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. This medication is classified as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking the action of certain hormones that cause pain and inflammation in the body. Diclofenac comes in tablet form and may cause side effects, such as constipation, diarrhea, and heartburn. To minimize the risk of side effects, you should take the lowest possible dose for the shortest amount of time necessary.
