I haven' had any side effects from the oral or get Voltaren. It takes a while for the gel to kick in but it seems to numb the pain when I use it at night. I only usually have to use it twice for the pain to stop, but it gets me through a nights sleep. So far, I like the Volatren gel but I will keep informed on this web site for more info. Thanks all. free discount card
