Diclofenac Sodium Topical Gel is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) indicated for the treatment of pain from osteoarthritis of the knee. The mechanism of action of diclofenac is similar to that of other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Diclofenac inhibits the enzyme, cyclooxygenase (COX), an early component of the arachidonic acid cascade, resulting in the reduced formation of prostaglandins, thromboxanes and prostacylin.
