OverviewDosageSide EffectsInteractionsHalf-Life

NSAIDs are not typically associated with addiction, so diclofenac withdrawal would likely only include a return of the pain it was treating in the first place. 

How Long Do Diclofenac Withdrawal Symptoms Last?

The effects of diclofenac (Flector, Cambia, Zorvolex) wear off in about 15 hours or less. At that point, the pain will return until the problem resolves or another dose stops it. 

Withdrawal Symptoms

Diclofenac withdrawal symptoms would be the return of the pain that it initially treated. 

Precautions

Follow the dose instructions on the medication for the best results. 

Treatment Options

If pain returns, it might be possible to take another dose or to try a different medication. Patients should never use or discontinue their medications without the guidance of their prescribing medical provider.
