Adverse effects Diclofenac Ratiopharm Conseil
By convention, the frequencies of adverse events were classified according to their incidence using the following classification:
Very common (≥1 / 10)
Frequent (≥1 / 100 to <1/10)
Uncommon (≥1 / 1, 000 to <1/100)
Rare (≥1 / 10, 000 to <1 / 1, 000)
Very rare (<1 / 10, 000)
Not known (can not be estimated from the available data).
Common side effects: Local skin reactions such as redness of the skin, burning sensation, pruritus, erythema, rash sometimes accompanied by pustules or papules.
Uncommon side effects: hypersensitivity reactions or local allergic reactions (contact dermatitis).
In patients using topical preparations containing topical NSAIDs, isolated cases of generalized rash and hypersensitivity reactions such as angioedema, anaphylactic reactions and photosensitization have been reported.
The systemic absorption of diclofenac after topical application is very low compared to the plasma levels of active principle observed after the use of oral forms. The likelihood of systemic adverse events (such as gastrointestinal or renal disorders, bronchospasm) is very low compared to the frequency of such effects associated with oral diclofenac. However, when diclofenac is applied to an extended skin surface and for a prolonged period of time, the possibility of systemic adverse effects can not be ruled out.
