Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
I can understand your apprehension regarding the use of these 2 drugs along with lithium , as you would want to look for other options if there is any remote chance for these 2 drugs triggering depression.
But, before i come to the answer let me first brief you up with the actual uses of the 2 drugs .
Well, diclofenac sodium is a Non steroidal anti inflammatory drug taken for pain relief while cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant , and their combination is good for your back pain . But having said that , although Diclofenac sodium is safe for use , without it causing depression , but the same cannot be said about Cyclobenzaprine , as it causes depression as a side effect.
I am mentioning below a link which will throw more light on depression as a side effect of cyclobenzaprine .
( see Side effects , central nervous system side efefcts )
So, i will suggest that you ask your prescribing doctor to opt for any other muscle relaxant instead of cyclobenzaprine while continuing with dicofenac , as there is a chance that cyclobenzaprine may trigger depression , which is otherwise aptly controlled by lithium.
I hope this helps.. TAKE CARE..
