Q: What kind of over the counter pain relievers can I take with Declophen?

A: Declophen belongs to the class of drugs known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs. The use of Declophen with over-the-counter pain relievers would generally be limited to acetaminophen (Tylenol and others). All other over-the-counter pain relievers contain aspirin or other NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen and naproxen. The use of multiple NSAIDs is not generally recommended because of the potential for increased side effects, such as gastrointestinal upset and bleeding. Michelle McDermott, PharmD

How to use Declophen 1 % Topical Gel

Read the Medication Guide and Patient Instructions for Use provided by your pharmacist before you start using Declophen and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

This medication is for use on the skin only. To measure the right dose, use the dosing card(s) provided with the medication. Place a dosing card on a flat surface so that you can read the print on the card. Squeeze an even line of the medication from the tube onto the dosing card, using the marks on the card to measure the prescribed dose. Gently rub the medication into the entire affected joint, usually 4 times daily or as directed by your doctor. You may use the dosing card to apply the medication. Do not apply the medication on skin that has cuts, infections, or rashes.

If the package instructions direct you to reuse the dosing card, then after each use, hold the card with your fingertips, rinse, and dry. When you are ready to discard the dosing card, fold the card in half with the medication side inside and throw away out of the reach of children and pets. Wash your hands after using the medication unless you are using it to treat the hands. Do not shower, bathe, or wash any treated areas for at least an hour after applying the medication. Wait at least 10 minutes before covering the treated area with gloves or clothing. Do not wrap, bandage, or apply heat (such as a heating pad) to the treated area.

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Do not apply more than 16 grams of Declophen per day to any single joint of the lower body (such as knee, ankle, foot). Do not apply more than 8 grams of Declophen per day to any single joint of the upper body (such as hand, wrist, elbow). No matter how many joints you are treating, do not use more than a total of 32 grams of Declophen per day.

Discuss the risks and benefits of using this drug with your doctor or pharmacist. To reduce the risk of side effects, use this medication at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time. Do not increase your dose, use it more often than prescribed, or apply the medication to any area not prescribed by your doctor.

Do not get the medication in the eyes, nose, or mouth. If you do get the medication in those areas, flush with plenty of water. Contact your doctor right away if irritation persists.

For certain conditions (such as arthritis), it may take up to 2 weeks of using this drug regularly until you get the full benefit.

If you are using this drug "as needed" (not on a regular schedule), remember that pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur. If you wait until the pain has worsened, the medication may not work as well.

Tell your doctor if your pain persists or worsens.

How Declophen works

Declophen is given to treat painful conditions such as arthritis, sprains and strains, gout, migraine, dental pain, and pain after surgical operations. It eases pain and reduces inflammation. Declophen is available on prescription.

Declophen works by blocking the effect of chemicals in your body, called cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes. These enzymes help to make other chemicals in the body, called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced at sites of injury or damage, and cause pain and inflammation. By blocking the effect of COX enzymes, fewer prostaglandins are produced, which means pain and inflammation are eased.

There are two forms of Declophen - Declophen sodium and Declophen potassium. The main difference between the two is that Declophen potassium is absorbed into the body more quickly than Declophen sodium. A quick action is useful where immediate pain relief is required, and a prolonged action is more useful in reducing inflammation. Some brands of Declophen also contain a medicine called misoprostol. The brands are called Arthrotec® and Misofen®, and are prescribed for arthritis. Misoprostol helps to protect the stomach against irritation which can be caused by taking Declophen over a period of time.

Declophen is not a suitable medicine for people who have heart disease (such as heart failure), or who have circulatory problems, or who have had a heart attack or a stroke. This is because it has been found that there is a small increased risk of heart attack and stroke in this group of people. Other anti-inflammatory medicines are more suitable for people with these conditions - ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice about an alternative medicine.

Declophen is also formulated as skin gels, patches and as eye drops. There is more information about these formulations in the separate medicine leaflets called Declophen gel/patch for pain and inflammation, Declophen gel for sun damage and Declophen eye drops.

Inflammation and pain from osteoarthritis or rheumato >

The immediate release forms of Declophen are usually dosed 3 to 4 times a day and start at a dose of 25 mg.

The extended-release form is usually dosed once a day. The dose often starts at 75 mg per day.

Dosage for people younger than 18 years has not been established.

Seniors: If you are aged 65 years and older, your body may process this drug more slowly. Your doctor may start you on a lowered dose so that too much of this drug does not build up in your body. Too much of the drug in your body can be toxic.
