Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Thanks for your question and I'm reviewing it.
I'll be back in a moment with and answer or a request for more information

Just to check--what medications do you take?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Dr, I am taking : Bisoprolol 10 for blood tension, Bipreterax , Crestor , aspirine (100) and Omeprazole

also Glucophage 1000 for diabetes


I'd suggest the diclofenac since ibuprofen might interfere with your aspirin

Please let me know if you need any more information

Ok thanks , it is didcoflenac sodium (Voltaren) should I take 50 mg or 100 mg? and will interfere with the agent or other medications I am taking ?

Or I also have didcofenac potassium 50 mg?

finally if the pain persists can I take oramorph 10 mg per 5 ml and how much ? Many thanks !

You can take 100 mg twice a day as needed and it won't interfere with your other medications.

You can also take 10 mg of the oramorph three times as day as needed
