The only thing more painful than a killer headache or cramps that won’t go away is the seemingly endless array of over-the-counter pain relievers to choose from—which pain reliever is the best pain reliever for your specific issue? It can be difficult to find a pain reliever—but don’t worry, we’ve got your (sore) back.

According to TATA 1mg reports, Here’s a comparison between which would be a better one between Diclogem or Crocin, which will help you choose better.

  1. Diclogem Tablet contains two medications: diclofenac and paracetamol. These medications work by inhibiting the action of chemical messengers that cause pain, fever, and inflammation, whereas Crocin Advance Tablet is a diuretic (pain reliever) (fever reducer). It acts by preventing the release of chemical messengers responsible for pain and fever. Hence both work the same way.
  1. Back discomfort, earaches, throat pain, toothaches, and arthritis pain are all efficiently relieved by Diclogem. Crocin, on the other hand, is beneficial in treating headaches, migraines, nerve pain, toothaches, sore throats, menstrual cramps, arthritis, and muscle aches.
  1. Nausea, vomiting, stomach discomfort/epigastric pain, heartburn, diarrhea, and loss of appetite are all common Diclogem adverse effects. Crocin has stomachache, nausea, and vomiting as side effects.

If we see the above points, we realize that both painkillers have the same attributes. Both are equally effective and have some side effects. So you can choose any of the ones based on availability. But make sure you consult a doctor or medical professional before you take any of the medication if you are facing any health issues because “Diagnosis is always better than self-cure.”
