Dolophob Gel is a combination of two medicines: diclofenac and heparin which relieve pain and inflammation. Diclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) which works by blocking the release of certain chemical messengers that cause pain and inflammation (redness and swelling). Heparin is an anticoagulant that prevents the formation of harmful blood clots.
Dolophob Gel may be unsafe to use during pregnancy. Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the foetus, however, there are limited human studies. The benefits from use in pregnant women may be acceptable despite the risk. Please consult your doctor.
Dolophob Gel is probably safe to use during lactation.
Limited human data suggests that the drug does not represent a significant risk to the baby.
