Medicines such as Aceclofenacmay be associated with a small increased risk of heart attack (”myocardial infarction”) or stroke. Any risk is more likely with high doses and prolonged treatment.
Do not exceed the recommended dose or duration of treatment.
If you have heart problems, previous stroke or think that you might be at risk of these conditions (for example, if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol or are a smoker) you should discuss your treatment with your doctor or pharmacist.
As a precaution, you should refrain from driving or operating machinery if you feel dizzy or sleepy when you take Aceclofenac. Do not perform any of these actions until the effects wear off.
Always take Aceclofenac as directed by your doctor.
The tablets should be taken regularly and as directed by your doctor. The recommended dose in adults is 200mg per day, taken as one tablet in the morning and one in the evening.
Swallow tablets whole with a drink of water. Do not crush or chew the tablets. Aceclofenac should be taken preferably with or after food.
Never change the dose of your medicine without talking to your doctor first.
Continue to take your tablets for as long as your doctor recommends. Do not stop taking them if you begin to feel better, unless you are told to do so by your doctor.
If you miss a dose, do not worry, just take the next dose when it is due.
If you accidentally take too many Aceclofenac film-coated tablets, contact your doctor immediately or go to your nearest hospital casualty department. Take this leaflet or the box the Aceclofenac film-coated tablets came in, to the hospital so that they will know what you have taken.
