Flector Patch is a medication containing diclofenac epolamine, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication (NSAID) used as a topical treatment for pain relief and inflammation in a small area of the body.

The patch releases the medication into the skin to provide local analgesia.

Flector Patch is used to relieve pain from conditions such as minor strains, sprains, and bruises.

Flector Patch is mess-free and easy to apply and is known to provide pain relief for various localized musculoskeletal conditions.

Use and Dosage

Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using diclofenac each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

The patch comes in a resealable envelope. When opening the envelope for the first time, cut it open as instructed. Remove a patch from the envelope and reseal the envelope. It is important to reseal the envelope after each opening, or the remaining patches will not stick correctly.

Before applying the patch, remove the clear liner. Apply the patch to the skin to cover the most painful area. Do not apply the patch on burns, cuts, or irritated skin (such as eczema). Use the patch as directed by your doctor. Depending on your product, the patch is usually changed every 12 or 24 hours. Follow the directions carefully. Fold the used patch in half with the sticky sides together and discard it out of reach of children and pets.

If the patch begins to peel off, you may tape the edges to the skin.

Do not wear the patch while bathing or showering. Take baths/showers at times that you normally change the patch.

To avoid getting the medication in your eyes, nose, mouth, or vaginal area, wash your hands after handling the patch. If the medication or patch does come in contact with those areas, flush with plenty of water. Contact your doctor right away if irritation lasts.

Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. To reduce side effect risks (such as stomach bleeding), use this medication at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible length of time. Do not increase your dose or use it more often than prescribed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor or pharmacist.

If you are using this drug “as needed” (not on a regular schedule), remember that pain medications work best if they are used as the first signs of pain occur. If you wait until the pain has worsened, the medicine may not work as well.

Tell your doctor if your pain lasts or gets worse.

Side Effects

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction to Flector (runny or stuffy nose, hives, wheezing, difficulty breathing, swelling in your face or throat) or a severe skin reaction (fever, sore throat, burning eyes, skin pain, red or purple skin rash with blistering and peeling).

Stop using Flector and seek medical treatment if you have a serious drug reaction that can affect many parts of your body. Symptoms may include skin rash, fever, swollen glands, muscle aches, severe weakness, unusual bruising, or yellowing of your skin or eyes.

Get emergency medical help if you have signs of a heart attack or stroke: chest pain spreading to your jaw or shoulder, sudden numbness, or weakness on one side of the body, slurred speech, leg swelling, and feeling short of breath.

Ask your doctor whether you will need to remove your patch before the test and apply a new patch afterward, and how to do so properly.
