User Comments about Diclofenac Sodium
12 Jan 2012 I have been on Diclofenac for about eight months for severe joint and lower back pain.They help me with pain, inflammation and stiffness in my joints combined with other pain relief if needed,such as paracetamol or co-codamol depending on my level of pain.

20 Jun 2010 As I said before, I used this medication for my back pain, and it really worked, it relieved my back and helped me having a better sleep time. I really appreciated it. But I had to use it in combinayion with paracetamol.
