What is Pennsaid?

Pennsaid (Diclofenac Sodium) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is administered topically as a solution. Unlike traditional oral NSAIDs, which are typically taken in pill form, Pennsaid is applied directly to the skin at the site of pain.

What is the recommended dosing method for Pennsaid?

The recommended dosage of Pennsaid for osteoarthritis typically involves applying 40 drops (2 mL) of gel  to the affected knee four times a day. However, it’s essential to follow your healthcare provider’s specific instructions, as dosages can vary based on individual factors.

What are the side effects of Pennsaid?

Common Side Effects:

  • Skin reactions at the application site (redness, itching, rash)
  • Stinging or burning sensation at the application site
  • Dry skin
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Upset stomach

Serious Side Effects (Rare):

  • Severe skin reactions, including blistering or peeling
  • Allergic reactions (swelling, difficulty breathing, hives)
  • Changes in vision or eye irritation
  • Signs of bleeding in the stomach or intestines (black or bloody stools, stomach pain)

This list is not exhaustive, and other side effects may occur. If you experience any unusual or severe side effects while using Pennsaid, it is important to seek immediate medical attention.

What if I can’t afford Pennsaid?

We believe that high deductibles and copays shouldn’t prevent anyone from receiving the medications they need. That’s why at QuickRx, we help patients register with various public non-profit foundations and drug manufacturer programs to reduce the copays and out-of-pocket costs for the medication.

The best thing you can do for your safety is to get all of your prescriptions and supplements from the same pharmacy and inform your doctor of everything else you are currently taking.
