Each 2 gm sachet contains 50mg Diclofenac Potassium in a powder form.
Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with pronounced analgesic and antipyretic actions. Diclofenac is an inhibitor of cyclooxygenase and its potency is substantially greater than that of indomethacin, naproxen and several other NSAIDs. The mechanism of action of Diclofenac, like that of other NSAIDs, is not completely understood but may be related to prostaglandin synthetase inhibition.
Diclofenac is eliminated through metabolism and subsequent urinary and biliary excretion of
the glucuronide and the sulfate conjugates of the metabolites. Little or no free unchanged diclofenac is excreted in the urine. Approximately 65% of the dose is excreted in the urine.
