Voltarol Emulgel® P brings targeted and localised relief from pain and swelling (inflammation) from damage to tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints due to sprains, strains and bruises. It relieves pain to help you get moving again.
Voltarol Emulgel® P can also be used for relief of mild arthritis. A clinical study has shown that Voltarol Emulgel® P is as effective as taking 400mg oral ibuprofen for osteoarthritis of the fingers. For arthritis pain it may be necessary to apply the gel for up to 7 days to allow its effect to build up on the joint and before an improvement in pain is noticed.
Active ingredient: 100g of Voltarol Emulgel P contains 1.16g of the active substance diclofenac diethylammonium, which corresponds to 1g diclofenac sodium.
Other ingredients: diethylamine, carbomers, cetomacrogol, cocoyl capryloccaprate, isopropyl alcohol, liquid paraffin, perfume creme 45 (containing benzyl benzoate), propylene glycol, purified water.
The amount of gel needed will vary depending upon the size of the painful or swollen area. An amount ranging in size from 1 penny to a 2 pence piece will usually be sufficient. Apply 3 to 4 times a day unless your doctor or pharmacist tells you otherwise, and allow at least 4 hours between applications of the gel.
Do not apply more than 4 times in any 24-hour period. Consult your doctor if pain and swelling do not improve within 7 days. Do not use the gel for longer than 14 days unless longer treatment has been recommended by a doctor. The gel is not recommended for use in children under 14 years of age.
