Diclofenac Pharmacodynamics
The active ingredient – diclofenac – is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with pronounced analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic properties. By indiscriminately inhibiting cyclooxygenase type 1 and 2, it disrupts the metabolism of arachidonic acid and the synthesis of prostaglandins, which are the main link in the development of inflammation.
In rheumatic diseases it reduces swelling, hyperemia and pain at rest and while moving, morning stiffness and joint swelling, improving their functional ability. In post-operative and traumatic injuries it quickly suppresses pain and inflammation in the area of application of the drug, promotes resorption of post-traumatic hematoma.
