More information

  • Usage

    Diclofenac sodium (Voltaren) is a medication used for relieving symptoms related to osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. Containing diclofenac sodium, Voltaren belongs to a class of medications known as NSAIDS (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). As an NSAID, diclofenac’s mechanism of action is thought to be related to blocking the synthesis of prostaglandins. Diclofenac has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic effects. Diclofenac is not a corticosteroid medication and cannot be used as a replacement for corticosteroid withdrawal.

  • Diclofenac sodium (Voltaren) – Side Effects

    Diclofenac sodium (Voltaren), like many medications, can cause side effects. Side effects related to diclofenac use include diarrhea, heartburn, constipation, stomach pain, nausea, dizziness, headaches, and itching. Anyone who has had a prior hypersensitivity reaction or allergy to diclofenac should not use the medication. Diclofenac sodium and alcohol should not be used together. Prior to using diclofenac sodium or Voltaren gel, patients should discuss possible side effects and questions with their medical provider and pharmacist.

  • Cost Information

    Diclofenac sodium gel is relatively inexpensive, costing under $23 for 1 tube of 100 g diclofenac sodium 1% gel. Some insurance plans may cover the cost of diclofenac sodium prescriptions and Voltaren gel coupons may also be available online at times from the manufacturer or other sources. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    Voltaren is an orally administered tablet available in delayed-release form and belongs to a class of medications that derive from benzene-acetic acids. While fully absorbed after oral administration, only about half of the diclofenac dose ingested is available in the body. When taken with food, diclofenac tends to delay the onset of absorption. The majority of diclofenac is excreted in the urine with much of the remainder being excreted in the feces.
