Aceclofenac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) which eases pain and reduces inflammation. It is usually prescribed for people with painful rheumatic conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis.
Aceclofenac works by blocking the effect of cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes.
Concomitant use of two or more NSAIDs (including aspirin) may increase the risk of adverse effects including GI bleeding
Aceclofenac may reduce the effect of activity antihypertensive drugs. The risk of acute renal insufficiency, which is usually reversible, may be increased in some patients with compromised renal function when antihypertensives such as ACE inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor antagonists are combined with aceclofenac.
