    For Those that can tolerate this med you may benefit from it's reincarnation "Zorvolex".

    Same med (Diclofenac) in nano particle form so it works very fast.

    This med has been a game changer for me. It actually replaced the opiate med I was taking. (seriously)

    Also, for all us multi-'script persons, don't forget to go to the meds website. Chances are there are discounts available. They have picked up the tab for my co-pay and every penny helps.

    Gel--not pills.
    It does work for some areas and types of pain. I love being able to apply the med exactly where I need it. I'm rediscovering the use of Voltaren gel for my morning arthralgias. (Toes don't work in the morning, so it's VERY hard to leave the bed.)

    This is very interesting to me, as i rely on fioricet for my headaches. Sometimes the gel applied to my neck will help cut down on muscle tension headaches, but if the pill form is better I'd love to try it. What strength are you using?

  5. #45
    I use the voltaren gel also. It does seem to help if the pain is not severe. I also has zipsor capsules, these did not help as much with the severe pain. I also take fiorinal for headaches and my neurologist just have me some samples of cambia (diclofenac) powder to also try for headaches and neck/back pain first thing in the morning. I have not tried this yet.

    I have tried the Voltaren/diclofenac gel on my lower back. I can't decide if it actually works or if it's psychological. ADC is selling them so cheaply that I added four tubes of the gel to my last order just for the heck of it. In fact, i think I am going to apply some right now on my way to bed.

    Does anyone know what would happen if you put the gel on a TENS pad before using the TENS unit?

    ADC has the gel? I didn't see it there before.. will go check. Holy cow, just looked. Dam wish I'd known this before I reordered last week! Can anyone suggest what strength of the pill form I should try? Those prices are good too.

  8. Diclofenac worked extremely well for me for inflamation along with moderate pain, especially if taken for a few days at regular intervals so it builds up the NSAID's blood level. It's a really good sports-injury med just so long as you don't have a broken bone or serious soft-tissue damage.

    I'm from the UK, and as a sufferer of osteoarthritis, I've previously found diclofenac to be very helpful in reducing pain and also increasing my mobility. However, since about 2013, UK doctors have been advised to take patients off diclofenac and to prescribe either an alternative non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) and/or an analgesic (such as paracetamol/acetaminophen, codeine or tramadol). This reluctance to prescribe diclofenac has not been due to the potential risks to the gastrointestinal-tract, but due to a small increase in risk to so-called 'cardiovascular events' (e.g. stroke and heart-attack) associated with taking this NSAID over a significant period of time.

    I know this is an old thread but I recently had a bad flare up of sciatica. Got an appt with the PA, doc left for another practice and the other doc was booked solid for months. PA prescribed diclofenac, I was skeptical but it knocked the pain in my rear way down at least 85-90%. I couldn’t sit, my leg was killing me, numbness in a couple of toes, I was miserable. Took it for two weeks and had a follow up a week later. We discussed my pain level and the PA gave me another script if it flares up again. For now I’m managing with naproxen and stretches.

    PA did mention to check your blood pressure if you take this med for an extended time as it can raise it.

    I didn't want to take it because of what I've read about stomach problems. Eventually I decided it was in my best interest. 48 hours ago, I didn't take it with food. Ouch. Ouch. Ouch. Bad decision. I'm trying to stay on it but since that bad experience it seems to have really messed up my system.
    In the topical gel form it's fair, but other meds / herbs / extracts can be mixed in the gel.

    Using a Dermal Topical version of this medication should be far easier on your stomach than by tablet form. However, as with all NSAIDS, make certain your physician checks your Kidney Function from time to time during physicals, blood work, etc. this is generally done when your doctor orders a CMP. Especially persons with Diabetes, these generally very safe and effective class of drugs, can really wreck havoc. Otherwise, using Voltaren Gel is far easier on your G.I. tract, while offering equal or superior relief depending on what you are treating.

    Be Well~

  14. i'm not a fan of voltaren. the doc or pharmacist fixed the prescription so my son picked up 6 enormous tubes of it. the gel just didn't do anything so i returned to ibuprofen. now i have 5 unused tubes and countless samples of diclofenac. doctors really push it, but it causes stomach pain and the gel is messy. most importantly, ibuprofen works better for me.

    Hi @notcharlotte

    There are literally so many of this class of drug on the Market, it’s not at all uncommon to find patients who respond very well to one, but not another. I actually like Ibuprofen as well, but here in the U.S. they do not make an Ibuprofen Based Gel. I have to order it from GB. And it depends on what one is treating too. If I was treating a sprained ankle, I’d opt for a Topical Gel no problem. But if it was Flu, Headache or all over Muscle Pain, oral meds would be my choice.

    I swear by diclofenac gel for my osteoarthritis - it works a treat, so long as I use it regularly and really massage it in. I don't find it that messy, and I like that it doesn't come with the systemic side effects and nausea that oral diclofenac have. I cannot take ibuprofen, so having this gel really has been a godsend for me.

  17. @H20shed65, thanks for reminding me. i need to order some ibuprofen gel. i have a script for lidocaine 5%, which works well. however, it's $200.00 for 5 ozs.

    The cost of Lidocaine 5% is criminal. My insurance company won't cover it. Yet the, I think it's 3% OTC, is cheap, only it doesn't do a Damn thing, but I find prescription strength to at least relieve some pain... Not a whole lot though.

    Trust me, total SCAM! We’ve use Lidoderm Transdermal Patches in hospice for years. They’re excellent for certain patients who either refuse narcotics, or have severe kidney disease as well which means using any of the above drugs mentioned ( NSAIDS ) make CKD patients even sicker. About 2 years ago, there was an “ unexplained shortage” which drove up the price to some obscene amount. Then the company who was trying to come to market with a generic, had “unexplained delays “ with their ANDA FDA approval.

    Hmmm....my guess? The original patent holder probably had one of their trucks in the neighborhood of the Generic Manufacturer where $900 Million Dollars accidentally fell off the truck! { INSERT GIANT EYE ROLL HERE }

    CVS sells a house brand OTC gel patch that contains 4% (versus 5% by prescription) of lidocaine 5 ct. for around $9.00.
    In my personal experience it's very difficult to distinguish pain relief between 4% and 5%. So brand Lidoderm and the recent generic Lidoderm patches are really a ripoff these days.
    Plus the adhesive on the generic I tried sucked.
