Arthrotec is a prescription drug that relieves pain and inflammation due to osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It contains an NSAID called diclofenac, and misoprostol to protect the gastrointestinal tract by reducing stomach acid.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Arthrotec exactly as prescribed.
Take with food or milk.
Swallow tablet whole. Do not crush or break.
Do not use Arthrotec if you are pregnant or may become pregnant.
One of the active ingredients in Arthrotec (diclofenac) can increase you risk of fatal heart attack or stroke, especially if used long term.
Arthrotec can cause bleeding in the stomach or intestines, which can be fatal. Don’t use if you have active bleeding, and monitor closely for symptoms of GI bleeding.
Before taking Arthrotec, inform your doctor if you have any of the following:
Heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes
Stomach ulcers or bleeding
Liver or kidney disease
Common side effects of Arthrotec include:
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation
Heartburn, indigestion, stomach pain
Abnormal vaginal bleeding
Contact your doctor if you experience these more serious side effects:
Any signs of rash
Swelling or weight gain
Signs of bleeding – coughing or vomiting blood, bloody or black stools
Anemia – light-headed, short of breath, pale skin, rapid heart rate, trouble concentrating
Severe skin reaction – sore throat, swollen face or tongue, burning eyes, fever, skin pain, red or purple rash with blistering
Kidney problems – painful urination, producing little or no urine, swollen feet and ankles, tiredness or shortness of breath
What should I avoid while taking Arthrotec?
Drinking alcohol may increase your risk of bleeding while on Arthrotec. Do not take any other NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, Celebrex, naproxen), and only use antacids that have been recommended by your doctor. Arthrotec can make you sunburn more easily, so avoid tanning beds and sun exposure without proper protection.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
