Suggest an effective alternative for Diclofenac Sodium

My mother had an allergic reaction to Diclofenac Sodium , used it for knee arthritis pain, her throat glands swelled and respiratory difficulty ensued. Medication worked very well for relieving pain, is there any other similar medication to Diclofenac that would not have that allergic reaction.

You can consider analgesics like tramadol which is safe and effective especially for long-term use.

It does not usually produce an allergic reaction also.

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