Diclofenac Overview, Dosage, How to Take, Side Effects and Pregnancy
Diclofenac dosage. Diclofenac comes in several brands with different formulations, so depending on the brand and the condition you are treating, the recommended dose may range from 50 milligrams (mg) to 100 mg in eight- to 12-hour intervals. You should take no more than 225 mg in a day of the regular-release form. Doses of the extended-release form should not exceed 200 mg in a day. Always take diclofenac with at least 8 ounces of water. Diclofenac can be very hard on the stomach, so for best results, try taking it with food or milk.
