Although the pharmacokinetics of Diclofenac are not impaired to any clinically relevant extent in elderly patients, non-steroidal anti-inﬂammatory drugs should be used with particular caution in such patients who, generally, are more prone to adverse reactions. In particular, it is recommended that the lowest effective dosage be used in frail, elderly patients or those with a low body weight.
Children (aged 1 - 12 years):
Diclofenac 12.5 mg suppositories only can be used for children.
Diarrhoea, allergic reactions, nausea, or vomiting may occur.
Patients with renal, cardiac or hepatic impairment and the elderly should be kept under surveillance, since the use of NSAIDs may result in deterioration of renal function.
