What is Voltaren

Diclofenac or most commonly referred to as Voltaren belongs to the category of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID). This medicine reduces the substances found in a human body which induce inflammation and pain. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis bring forward stiffness in joints, as well as swelling and pains which can be successfully treated with Voltaren.

Muscle strains, back pains, sprains and tendonitis, rheumatism, menstrual cramps and other conditions that bring forward swelling are efficiently treated with this medication. Yet, before the patient undertakes the treatment with Voltaren, it’s important to mind whether he/she has an allergy to aspirin or any other NSAID medication.

Diclofenac is available in different dosages. The approved starting dose for treating osteoarthritis is 100-150mg per day. This dose is to be taken in parts – 50mg or 75mg twice or three times a day. Doctors prescribe 150-200mg of Voltaren per day to relieve rheumatoid arthritis pains. This dosage, too, is to be taken in parts either three or four time a day. If the patient suffers from ankylosing spondylitis, he is to receive a Voltaren treatment in 100-125mg dosage per day. In this case, the patient will need to take 25mg four times a day and an extra 25mg before going to sleep. As a rule, the medication is to be taken with food to avoid stomach upset.

Like many other drugs, Voltaren may interact with other medications. Lithium, cyclosporine, blood thinners, methotrexate, antidepressants, teniposide, sulfamethoxazole, rifampin, cholesterol-lowering drugs, antifungal medications, steroids, as well as aspirin and other NSAID drugs may interact with Voltaren.

Voltaren XR tablets are to be swollen wholly. The patient is to neither spill nor crush, or chew these tablets. It’s essential to adhere to the doctor’s prescription label and never take larger amounts of the medication or on longer terms than required. Depending on the reaction of the patient’s organism to the treatment, the doctor can change the dosage.

Perhaps there is no medicine that doesn’t have side effects. And if some are mild, others appear quite serious. Voltaren is not an exception. This medicine may increase the risk of having a stroke or a fatal heart attack if the patient takes high dosages of Voltaren on a long term. Generally, the medication is forbidden for patients with heart diseases.

Another serious side effect Voltaren may cause is intestinal or stomach bleeding. Though very rare, the latter can be fatal. As a rule, side effects of Diclofenac threaten mostly people over 65 as their immune system is much weaker.
Other precautions include avoiding Voltaren if you have had any heart surgery or have an allergy to any of the medication’s ingredients. People with asthma may have their disease get worse when taking diclofenac.

Though Voltaren is not forbidden for pregnant women, it’s still preferable to stay away from the medicine till the baby is born. Later, if the woman breastfeeds her baby she should consult with her doctor. Though it’s still not known if diclofenac passes into breast milk or not, it’s better to take measures and avoid taking Voltaren during the nursery months. Additionally, pregnant women in their last trimester must never take the drugs as this medicine can bring serious harm to the unborn baby.

Voltaren is a medication designed for adults. It’s not approved for people younger 18.

Voltaren reviews

Fiona Fiona avatar

Arthritis is an insidious disease with periodic exacerbations. Mom successfully uses Voltaren. Saves in the autumn-spring period to eliminate pain and relieve inflammation. Voltaren is a time-tested tool and gives a lasting result. When rubbing the drug, it is better to make a light massage to improve blood circulation and double the therapeutic effect. After rubbing, relief comes in 10 to 15 minutes. A long course of use makes it possible to get rid of the pain. Given that the mother of this disease is chronic, the achievement of a long-term remission is of great importance. After the elimination of pain, she continues to lead an active lifestyle.

For many years I suffer from osteochondrosis. My daughter advised taking Voltaren in tablets. Of course, I understood that I needed to consult a specialist, but the pain was very strong and I had to start taking the pills myself. Pain passed quickly, but after a while, stomach problems started. At the consultation, the doctor recommended drinking the drug with milk. All the side effects have passed. Now from discomfort in the back I am saved by Voltaren.

This is the best product ever recommended for toothaches. It was the only thing to completely get rid of the pain of an infection of the tooth of the sage.

I have severe osteoarthritis in both knees, and arthritis in my back, and shoulders. My doctor prescribed Voltaren because I created resistance to Ibuprofen and Aleve. I have been in pain for so long that I forgot what it was like to be pain free. A little nervous about long-term side effects, so I hope you can get the weight to be able to be free medication. Just grateful to be able to move and do things I love without pain.

I have used the Voltaren Rapid 25 and 50 by far the best joint pain medication I have ever had. I use it to relieve my pain when gout attacks hit. I take 2 with milk or before eating something. My partner also uses it only if their period pain is unbearable

The first couple days this did nothing for me but by the third day I really noticed less pain and stiffness. However, I had to stop taking it when I started having severe stomach pains, headaches, and blood pressure increasing within one hour of taking it.

I have been on Vicodin, Percocet, etc. My body does not react to that. I was diagnosed with a cervical strain and they put this on me. I absolutely love it for muscle pain. I have arthritis and fibromyalgia and this medicine is great. There are also no side effects.

After a fall on the ice, I had a severe concussion. Dr gave me Voltaren 75mg twice a day to calm things down, the pain and to relax, works great! No stomach upset (that was concern for me) no side effects, medicine stays with you work, long time, better then on over-the-counter medications
