Dicloran is used to reduce hormones that cause pain and inflammation within the body. It is part of a group of drugs called NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs.

Dicloran is used for treating arthritis, osteoarthritis, myalgia, post-traumatic inflammation of sinews, muscles and ligaments, and morbidity of joints and muscles.
