ZIPSOR® (diclofenac potassium) Liquid Filled Capsules is a prescription treatment for mild to moderate acute pain in adults (18 years of age and older).
ZIPSOR was tested with adult men and women who experienced pain following orthopedic surgery to remove a bony deformity on the foot (bunion).
In these studies, ZIPSOR provided significant pain relief following surgery.
The most common side effects of ZIPSOR include abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, dyspepsia, nausea, and vomiting; also reported were dizziness, headache, somnolence, pruritus, and increased sweating.
When treating mild to moderate acute pain in adults, doctors want to use a treatment that works well and works fast to help you reduce pain.
ZIPSOR is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) designed to significantly relieve
mild to moderate acute pain in adults.
ZIPSOR is a pain reliever and was generally well tolerated in short-term clinical studies.
