Bayview Pharmacy is proud to offer Diclofenac Sodium 50 mg Slow Release Acid Resistant Capsules, a meticulously compounded formulation designed to provide sustained relief from pain and inflammation associated with a variety of conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, and migraine. This formulation is encapsulated with Methocel E4M, a controlled-release polymer, which ensures a gradual and prolonged release of the active ingredient, Diclofenac Sodium, over an extended period of time. This slow-release mechanism not only offers sustained therapeutic effects but also reduces dosing frequency, thereby improving patient compliance.

The acid-resistant feature of these capsules enhances their efficacy by ensuring better absorption of the medication. This is achieved by making the capsules more resistant to stomach acid, which often interferes with the absorption of medication. This unique feature, combined with the slow-release mechanism, ensures that patients experience long-term relief from their symptoms.

It is important to note that Diclofenac Sodium 50 mg Slow Release Acid Resistant Capsules should be used strictly as directed by a healthcare professional and are not intended to treat any other conditions.

Drug Interactions

A small arrow pointing down

Diclofenac Sodium 50 mg Slow Release Acid Resistant Capsules are a specialized formulation designed for the management of various inflammatory conditions such as Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Gout, and Migraine. The active ingredient, Diclofenac Sodium, is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that functions by inhibiting the production of certain chemicals responsible for inflammation and pain. This formulation is designed to alleviate pain, reduce swelling, and ease stiffness associated with these conditions.

The capsules are formulated with Methocel E4M, a type of controlled-release polymer. This technology allows for the gradual release of the encapsulated medication over an extended period, providing sustained therapeutic effects. This slow-release mechanism can lead to reduced dosing frequency, potentially improving patient compliance for medications requiring a controlled and prolonged release profile.

However, it is crucial to note that Diclofenac Sodium should not be administered to patients with a history of gastrointestinal bleeding or ulcers, as it may exacerbate the risk of bleeding. It should also be used with caution in patients with a history of heart disease, as it may elevate the risk of heart attack or stroke. Furthermore, Diclofenac Sodium may pose an increased risk of serious side effects such as kidney damage, liver damage, and bleeding. Therefore, patients should be closely monitored for signs and symptoms of these side effects.

It is always recommended to consult with a healthcare provider before starting any new medication. If you have any questions or concerns about the use of Diclofenac Sodium 50 mg Slow Release Acid Resistant Capsules, please consult with your healthcare provider.
