I've sprained my wrist, never had a sprain like this before in my life. Incredible pain and swelling - limited movement. I have just started Voltaren today and would like to know how often during the day you can have them? Only says on the box after having 2 tablets, adults can have 1 every 8 hours. Is it possible to have any earlier?
By spreading it out every 8 hrs it is keeping a constant blood level, which works better for pain then taking them when it hurts bad. At first its going to seem that its not helping, but give it 24 hrs, then it should be helping more. Be sure you don't take them on an empty stomach, it can be very hard on it. Try elevating your wrist and putting ice on it, it will help considerably. Also if you have something on it to immobilize it be sure its not too tight, with the swelling.
