Many gout meds are similar enough to diclofenac that I can’t recommend them if you don’t know exactly why your doctor told you to stop taking diclofenac. I was hoping you were still allowed to take it on occasion, just not every day…
If you were told not to take any diclofenac, I’d look into colchicine and methylprednisolone (or similar) which are quite different. I’m only saying “look into” because these drugs could potentially be hard on your kidneys as well.
If you wouldn’t know what to do if your foot started swelling and hurting real bad, best see a doctor and ask them what you should do in an emergency. This could happen in the middle of the night and you don’t want to have to wait in the ER when you are in such pain (assuming you are well enough get to the ER).
