Is cataflam a strong painkiller?
Also to know is, how quickly does cataflam work?
For certain conditions (such as arthritis), it may take up to 2 weeks of regular use before the full benefits of this drug take effect. If you are taking this drug on an "as needed" basis (not on a regular schedule), remember that pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur.
can I take cataflam with ibuprofen? GENERALLY AVOID: Concomitant use of more than one nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) at a time may increase the potential for serious gastrointestinal toxicity including inflammation, bleeding, ulceration, and perforation of the esophagus, stomach, or intestines.
Similarly, you may ask, which is stronger ibuprofen or diclofenac?
Diclofenac is considered more potent than ibuprofen and needs to be taken two or three times per day. Ibuprofen often needs to be taken in higher doses to treat pain from arthritis.
Can cataflam be taken on an empty stomach?
Several weeks may pass before you feel the full effects of this medicine. You may take this medicine with or without food. However, diclofenac capsules should be taken on an empty stomach. Mix well and drink it immediately on an empty stomach.
