     Use of oral diclofenac is restricted to the following situations:



    • In post caesarean section patients who are breast feeding and taking medication orally, ibuprofen is still first line choice for these patients, however diclofenac (short term and at the lowest possible dose) is second line as it is safer in breast feeding than naproxen


     



    • In the absence of contraindications, patients with renal colic or renal stones may be treated with a short course of oral diclofenac


     



    • For paediatric patients who require short term oral NSAIDs, ibuprofen is first line, diclofenac will be second line (as this has more indications than naproxen in children)


     



    • Chronic long term users of diclofenac (e.g. rheumatology patients, palliative care patients) must be reviewed on an individual patient basis and a decision made accordingly
