Uses of Diclofam Forte Tablet

Benefits of Diclofam Forte Tablet

In Pain relief

Diclofam Forte Tablet is used for short-term relief of pain, inflammation, and swelling in conditions that affect joints and muscles. It works by blocking chemical messengers in the brain that tell us we have pain. It can help relieve pain in conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis.

This pain-relieving action may damage the inner lining of the stomach. Therefore, this medicine also has Magnesium Trisilicate as one of its active ingredients, which reduces the acid secretion in our stomach, thereby reducing the damage caused by the painkillers.

Take it as it is prescribed to get the most benefit. Do not take more or for longer than needed as that can be dangerous. In general, you should take the lowest dose that works, for the shortest possible time. This will help you to go about your daily activities more easily and have a better, more active, quality of life.

How Diclofam Forte Tablet works

Diclofam Forte Tablet is a combination of three medicines: Diclofenac, Magnesium Trisilicate and Paracetamol which relieve pain. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) and Paracetamol is an antipyretic (fever reducer). They work by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers in the brain that cause pain and fever. Magnesium Trisilicate is an inorganic salt which reduces the amount of acid in the stomach and prevents damage to the stomach lining caused by Diclofenac.
