Hello,

Usually, Aceclofenac drug can be used for long periods as long as no side effect has been showing up. I also suggest to alternate with other NSAIDs like Naproxen, Ketorolac, et cetera.

However, alternating hot and cold compresses locally (on buttocks) can help relieve the pain. Applying analgesic cream/gel locally can be helpful. Certain stretching exercises for piriformis muscle can also help.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Albana Sejdini
