:I have been prescribed Diclofenac 50mg 3 times a day for pain and restricted movement due to frozen shoulder.
After 3 days of taking the tablets I started getting stomach pains and diarrhoea, so stopped taking them. On the 4th day the stomach ache lasted all day - not severe but annoying enough to be a nuisance.
I am today going to try reducing the dose to 2x50mg a day and see if that lessens the side effects. On the plus side the movement in my shoulder did seem a little better after just 3 days on the tablets.
The dr has put me on them for 3 weeks only and will reassess after that.
Anyone else had these side effects?
