Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (aminophenylacetic acid derivative) with anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effect. The mechanism of action is based on inhibition of cyclooxygenase activity (inhibition of cyclic peroxide synthesis, e.g. prostaglandins and other inflammatory process mediators). Diclofenac, by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis, stops the inflammatory process, increases the pain threshold. It has antiaggregational effects on platelets (much weaker than acetylsalicylic acid). It is quickly and completely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, reaching a maximum blood concentration after oral administration after about 2 hours. It penetrates into the joint fluid, where the concentration stays 4-6 hours longer than in the blood. 99% bound to plasma proteins. It is metabolized in the liver to 4 metabolites, of which 4 ' -hydroxy derivatives have high anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity. Metabolites in the form of glucuronides and sulfates are excreted in the urine (approximately 65%) and bile (approximately 35%). T0.5 is about 2 hours. Used externally (on the skin) - relieves pain, reduces swelling and inflammation. The gel form of the drug facilitates absorption, in intensive use or abuse, the general effect of the drug should be taken into account.
