Arthrotec is a medication which is specially formulated to treat symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis in patients who have a risk of developing stomach issues.
Arthrotec contains the generic ingredient diclofenac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that relieves the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. In patients who are at risk for developing stomach ulcers, doctors prescribe Arthrotec because it also helps protect the lining of the stomach.
As mentioned above, Arthrotec contains diclofenac to help relieve inflammation. It also contains another drug called misoprostol that helps to protect the lining of your stomach. Together they reduce the pain and inflammation of arthritis while minimizing damage to your stomach.
The usual dose is 50mg taken orally twice per day. Swallow the tablets whole immediately after a meal to reduce stomach upset. Do not lie down for at least 15 minutes after taking Arthrotec to reduce irritation. Sometimes it may take up to two weeks to feel the full effects of Arthrotec. It is best to take the lowest dose of this medication for the shortest amount of time.
These may not be all the side effects of Arthrotec 50mg.
Do not take this medication if you are pregnant or think you are pregnant. You should not take Arthrotec if you have heart bypass surgery, heart failure, ulcers, liver disease, bleeding disorders, inflammatory bowel disease or high potassium in the blood.
You should discuss alternative treatments other than Artrotec with your doctor if you have had certain conditions such as heart attack, angina, stroke, diabetes or high blood pressure.

Arthritis is a painful condition of the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common type of arthritis where the pain usually begins in the knuckles of the hands at the site of inflammation. Another common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis which affects the majority of people over the age of 50 years. Osteoarthritis is characterized by the cartilage in the joints becoming thin and uneven and then over time, possibly wearing out completely.
