Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2014.


NSAID, a derivative of phenylacetic acid.
Diclofenac has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiplatelet and antipyretic effects. By indiscriminately inhibiting cyclooxygenase 1 and 2 (COX-1 and COX-2), it breaks the metabolism of arachidonic acid, reduces the amount of prostaglandins in a hotbed of inflammation. The most effective for inflammatory pain.
In rheumatic diseases, the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect of diclofenac significantly reduces the severity of pain, morning stiffness, swelling of the joints, which improves the functional state of the joint.
In injuries, in the postoperative period, diclofenac reduces pain and inflammatory edema.
The drug removes or reduces pain and inflammation during the treatment of diseases of the musculoskeletal system, while
does not affect the progression of the disease.

The drug Rapten
Duo is a form of diclofenac (sodium salt) in the form of two-layer tablets.

After oral administration of diclofenac rapidly
and completely absorbed from the digestive tract. After a single administration of C max in plasma is achieved through 20-60 min by releasing 25 mg of diclofenac from the first acid-fast layer . From the second layer slowly released 50 mg of diclofenac for? 6 hours, which provides a lasting effect (12-24 hours). Changes in the pharmacokinetics of diclofenac against the background of repeated administration are not noted. Do not cumulate while observing the recommended interval between meals.

With plasma proteins
99% of the applied dose binds. The drug is well distributed in tissues and tissue fluids. Penetrates into the synovial fluid; C max in synovial fluid is observed 2-4 hours later than in plasma. T 1/2 from the synovial fluid 3-6 hours (the concentration of active substance in the synovial fluid 4-6 hours after the administration of the drug is higher than in the plasma, and remains higher for another 12 hours). Relationship of drug concentration in synovial fluid with clinical efficacy drug is not clear.
The drug penetrates through the BBB and placental
barrier, in small amounts excreted in breast milk.

50% of the active substance is metabolized during the "first pass" through the liver.
Metabolism occurs as a result of multiple or one-time hydroxylation and conjugation with glucuronic acid. In the metabolism of the drug takes part enzyme system P450 CYP2C9. The pharmacological activity of metabolites is lower than that of diclofenac. Systemic clearance is about 260 В± 50 ml / min, V d - 550 ml / kg.

T 1/2 from the plasma averages about 2.5 hours. 65% of the administered dose is excreted as metabolites by the kidneys;
less than 1% is excreted unchanged, the rest of the dose (less than 35%) is excreted as metabolites with bile.
Pharmacokinetics in special clinical cases

In patients with chronic hepatitis or compensated cirrhosis, the pharmacokinetic parameters of diclofenac do not change.

Contraindicated use of the drug in the III trimester of pregnancy and lactation.
Care should be taken when prescribing the drug in the first and second trimesters of pregnancy.
In connection with the negative effect on fertility, women who want to become pregnant, the drug is not recommended.

In patients with infertility (including those undergoing examination) it is recommended to cancel the drug.


Contraindication: marked renal failure (QC less than 30 ml / min), progressive kidney disease, incl.
confirmed hyperkalemia.

Contraindication: severe hepatic impairment or active liver disease.


Contraindicated: children under 18 years.


In order to quickly achieve the desired therapeutic effect, diclofenac is taken 30 minutes before meals.
In other cases, take before, during or after eating, without chewing, squeezed with enough water.
Because of the important role of prostaglandins in maintaining renal blood flow, caution should be exercised in appointing patients with cardiac or renal insufficiency, as well as in the treatment of elderly patients taking diuretics, and patients who for any reason have a reduced BCC (for example, after extensive surgical
interventions). When appointing such patients diclofenac is recommended to monitor the kidney function (as a precaution).
Patients with hepatic
insufficiency (chronic hepatitis, compensated cirrhosis), kinetics and metabolism do not differ from similar processes in patients with normal liver function.
When performing long-term therapy, it is necessary to monitor the liver function, the picture of peripheral blood, to conduct a fecal occult blood test.

If the increase in hepatic transaminase activity persists or increases during the administration of the drug, if clinical signs of hepatotoxicity are noted (including nausea, fatigue, drowsiness, diarrhea, itching, jaundice), treatment should be discontinued.

Diclofenac (like other NSAIDs) can cause hyperkalemia.

Patients taking the drug should refrain from drinking alcohol.

Impact on the ability to drive vehicles and manage mechanisms

During the treatment period, it is possible to reduce the speed of mental and motor reactions, so it is necessary to refrain from driving motor vehicles and practicing other potentially dangerous activities that require an increased concentration of attention and speed of psychomotor reactions.


Symptoms: vomiting, bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract, diarrhea, dizziness, tinnitus,
convulsions, increased blood pressure; with a significant overdose - acute renal failure, hepatotoxic effect, oppression breathing, coma.
Treatment: gastric lavage, activated charcoal, symptomatic therapy aimed at eliminating blood pressure increase, renal dysfunction, seizures, gastrointestinal irritation, respiratory depression.
Forced diuresis, hemodialysis are ineffective (due to the significant connection with proteins and intensive metabolism).

Diclofenac with simultaneous application increases the concentration in the plasma digoxin, methotrexate, lithium and cyclosporine.

Reduces the effect of diuretics, against the background of potassium-sparing diuretics increases the risk of hyperkalemia.

Against the background of anticoagulants, antiplatelet agents and thrombolytic agents (alteplase, streptokinase, urokinase), the risk of bleeding increases (more often from the digestive tract).

Diclofenac with simultaneous application reduces the effects of hypotensive and hypnotic drugs.

Increases the likelihood of side effects of other NSAIDs and GCS (bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract).

With simultaneous use with diclofenac, the toxicity of methotrexate and the nephrotoxicity of cyclosporine increases.

Acetylsalicylic acid reduces the concentration of diclofenac in the blood.

Simultaneous use with paracetamol increases the risk of developing
nephrotoxic effects of diclofenac.
Diclofenac with simultaneous use reduces the effect of hypoglycemic drugs.

Cefamandol, cefoperazone, cefotetan, valproic acid and plikamycin increase the incidence of hypoprothrombinemia.

Cyclosporine and gold preparations increase the effect of diclofenac on the synthesis of prostaglandins in the kidneys, which increases nephrotoxicity.

Simultaneous administration of diclofenac with ethanol, colchicine, corticotropin, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and St. John's wort increases the risk of bleeding in the digestive tract.

Medicines that cause photosensitivity, increase the sensitizing effect of diclofenac to ultraviolet radiation.

Drugs that block tubular secretion, increase the concentration in the plasma of diclofenac, thereby increasing its toxicity.

With the simultaneous use of antibacterial drugs from the group
quinolone increases the risk of seizures.

The drug is released by prescription.
