Aceclofenac should not be administered in patients previously sensitive to aceclofenac or aspirin or other NSAIDs.

SIDE EFFECTS

Dermatological complaints including pruritus and rash. Abnormal hepatic enzyme levels and raised serum creatinine have occasionally been reported.

DRUG INTERACTION

Lithium and Digoxin: Aceclofenac, like many NSAIDs may increase plasma concentrations of lithium and digoxin.

Diuretics: Aceclofenac, like other NSAIDs, may interact the activity of diuretics.

Anticoagulants: Like other NSAIDs, Aceclofenac may enhance the activity of anticoagulant. Methotrexate: Caution should be exercised if NSAIDs and Methotrexate are administered within 24 hours of each other, since NSAIDs may increase Methotrexate plasma level, resulting in increased toxicity.

USE IN PREGNANCY AND LACTATION

There is no information on the use of aceclofenac during pregnancy. There is no information of the secretion of aceclofenac in breast milk. The use of aceclofenac should therefore be avoided in pregnancy and lactation unless the potential benefits to the mother outweigh the possible risk to the children.
