FAQs

Q. What is Diclolite?

Diclolite is a combination of two medicines: Diclofenac and Paracetamol. This medication helps in relieving pain and inflammation. It works by lowering the levels of chemical substances in the body that cause pain and inflammation. Paracetamol / Acetaminophen has an early onset of action which means that it takes very less time to start its action and it helps in relieving the symptoms till diclofenac starts working.

Q. Is it safe to use Diclolite?

Yes, Diclolite is safe for most of the patients. However, in some patients it may cause some unwanted common side effects like nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, heartburn, diarrhea and other uncommon and rare side effects. Inform your doctor if you experience any persistent problem while taking this medication.

Q. Can I stop taking Diclolite when my pain is relieved?

Diclolite, when used for long-term pain relief, should be continued for as long as advised by your physician. It can be discontinued if you are using it for short-term pain relief.

Q. Can the use of Diclolite cause nausea and vomiting?

Yes, the use of Diclolite can cause nausea and vomiting. Taking it with milk, food or with antacids can prevent nausea. Avoid taking fatty or fried foods along with this medication. In case of vomiting, drink plenty of water or other fluids by taking small frequent sips. Talk to your doctor if vomiting persists and you notice signs of dehydration, like dark colored and strong-smelling urine and a low frequency of urination. Do not take any other medicine without speaking to your doctor.

Q. Can the use of Diclolite cause dizziness?

Yes, the use of Diclolite can cause dizziness (feeling faint, weak, unsteady or lightheaded) in some patients. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded it is better to rest for some time and resume once you feel better.

Q. Can the use of Diclolite cause damage to kidneys?

Yes, the long-term use of Diclolite can cause damage to the kidneys. Normal kidneys produce a chemical called prostaglandins that protect them from damage. Use of painkillers lowers the levels of prostaglandins in the body leading to kidney damage on long-term use. Use of painkillers is not recommended in patients with underlying kidney disease.

Q. Are there any specific contraindications associated with the use of Diclolite?

The use of Diclolite is considered to be harmful in patients with known allergy to painkillers (NSAIDs) or any of the components or excipients of this medicine. The use of this medicine should preferably be avoided in patients with a history of stomach ulcers or in patients with active, recurrent stomach ulcer/bleeding. It should also be avoided in patients with the history of heart failure, high blood pressure, and liver or kidney disease.

Q. Can Diclolite be taken with Vitamin B-complex?

Yes, Diclolite can be taken with Vitamin B-complex preparations. While Diclolite helps to relieve pain, Vitamin B-complex can help to correct the vitamin deficiency that might be causing the underlying painful condition.

Q. Is it safe to take a higher than the recommended dose of Diclolite?

No, taking a higher than the recommended dose of Diclolite can lead to increased chances of side effects like nausea, vomiting, heartburn, indigestion, diarrhea and can also damage your kidneys on long-term use. If you are experiencing increased severity of pain or the pain is not relieved by the recommended doses of this medicine, please consult your doctor for re-evaluation.

Q. What is the recommended storage condition for Diclolite?

Keep this medicine in the container or the pack it came in, tightly closed. Store it according to the instructions mentioned on the pack or label. Dispose of the unused medicine. Make sure it is not consumed by pets, children and other people.
