MECHANISM OF ACTION
Diclofenac works by blocking the effect of chemicals called cyclooxygenase 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 swelling. By blocking the effect of cyclooxygenase enzymes, production of prostaglandins are reduced, thus, pain and swelling are eased.
