Table of contents:

Cambia generically known as Diclofenac Potassium is indicated for the treatment of migraine headaches. The active ingredient in Cambia is diclofenac potassium which works by blocking the production of certain natural substances that cause pain and inflammation.

Cambia (Diclofenac Potassium) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat various forms of pain and inflammation. It is commonly prescribed to relieve pain, swelling, and stiffness associated with arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, and other musculoskeletal conditions.

Cambia is usually taken for the shortest time needed, and can be used to treat acute migraine attacks, as well as other conditions. Cambia may be combined with other medications for more severe symptoms.

Uses and Dosage

Cambia (diclofenac potassium) is taken by mouth as a powder. Empty the powder contents into a small cup of water and stir until it is completely dissolved. Drink the entire solution right away.

Do not take a double dose.

The recommended dosage of Cambia for the acute treatment of migraine is 50 milligrams (mg), which is also the maximum recommended dosage.
