Called Novartis since it was prescribed for me and no where on the instructions did it tell me how much should be used for rib pain. Was told by Novartis not to use it. Am concerned that this is not known by obviously my Dtr and possibly patients who might be on it. The safety of it concerns me greatly

Voltaren Gel is also not suggested for back pain either, but sometimes for me, it is a lifesaver!! My doctor prescribed it for my back. just thought that you would want to know, they just haven't had it approved by the FDA for certain parts of the body. It shouldn't be any different no matter where you put it, as your skin is going to absorb it regardless of where you put it. Good luck!
