1. What is Aceclofenac and how does it work?

Aceclofenac belongs to a group of medicines called NSAID\'s. Aceclofenac works by blocking chemicals called prostaglandins; which are released at the site of an injury and are responsible for producing pain and inflammation following tissue damage and immune reactions. By preventing the synthesis of these chemicals Aceclofenac reduces inflammation and pain associated with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis.

Each tablet contains 100mg of the active ingredient aceclofenac, and a number of inactive ingredients used to bind and coat the tablet (these are microcrystalline cellulose, sodium croscarmellose, polyvidone, glyceryl palmitostearate, and the film coat, containing partially substituted hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, polyoxyethylene 40 stearate and titanium dioxide).

2. Before taking Aceclofenac

Please inform your doctor immediately and DO NOT take Aceclofenac if you :

  • have or have ever had a stomach or duodenal ulcer
  • suffer from kidney disease
  • had an allergic reaction, e.g. skin rash or wheezing to any of the ingredients of Aceclofenac or to any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent e.g. diclofenac or aspirin
  • have ever experienced an increase in the severity and duration of an asthmatic attack, urticaria (rash), or acute rhinitis (runny nose) when taking aspirin or any other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent

  • do you suffer from asthma ?

  • have you recently undergone major surgery ?
  • are you trying to become pregnant ? Are you breast-feeding ?
