My dr put me on voltaren a month ago for hip pain that i've had for 6 months. what a relief! I will need a total hip replacement in the future. i felt so good i decided to paint the bathroom. that did me in again.i'm taking 100mg once a day and dr says i can't take any more. he prescribed in addition darvacet 100. i don't like taking voltaren now only works for about 8 hours a day before pain returns.any suggestions?
