AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Diclofenac creams.
Diclofenac Creams are a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication used to treat pain and other symptoms of arthritis of the joints (e.g. osteoarthritis), such as inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain.
Diclofenac cream is a topical solution used to treat pain and swelling caused by osteoarthritis of the knees. The compound is manufactured with diclofenac diethylamine, diclofenac sodium, methyl salicylate and menthol.
Methyl salicylate element in the cream is an anti-inflammatory topical solution used to treat minor aches/pains of muscles and joints which results from arthritis, backache, sprains.
Menthol and methyl salicylate are known as counterirritants. They work by causing the skin to feel cool and then warm. These feelings on the skin distract you from feeling the aches/pains deeper in your muscles, joints, and tendons.
As with all pharmaceuticals, some unwanted effects can occur from the use of diclofenac compound cream. Always consult a doctor or health care professional for medical advice before use.
Common side effects include application site reactions, including skin rash, pain, tingling, or burning sensation, flu-like syndrome (body ache, headache, fever, with or without chills), itching skin. Less common side effects may include joint pain, lack or loss of strength, loss or thinning of the hair, muscle pain and neck pain.
Seek medical attention if any adverse effects occur.
For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor.
If any symptom persists or gets worse, or you notice any other symptom, then please call your doctor immediately.
