INTRODUCTION

INSTAFLEX D contains Diclofenac which belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is indicated for treatment of mild to moderate acute pain in adults. Diclofenac is a NSAID which exhibits anti-inflammatory analgesic and antipyretic activities. It involves inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX-1 and COX-2) and it is a potent inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis in vitro. Prostaglandins sensitize afferent nerves and potentiate the action of bradykinin in inducing pain and mediators of inflammation. Diclofenac is an inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis, its mode of action may be due to a decrease of prostaglandins in peripheral tissues.

Always take INSTAFLEX D exactly as directed by your doctor. Before taking this medicine, tell your doctor if you have liver, kidney or heart problems, are pregnant or breastfeeding. The common side effects are edema, nausea, headache, vomiting and constipation.
