YES! It has "strong ammonia solution" as one of its inactive ingredients. If it's inactive, it does nothing for my arthritis. So why stick the stinky stuff in?? Read your labels, people! The pharmacy leaflet, too! There's so much information available and your body is too valuable to let someone else mess around with it. Knowledge is your best tool. Use it!
I don't find that Voltaren Gel has any odor. If you smell an alcohol like odor, make sure it's sanitary and fine by checking that the box and tube were not tampered with and it's within the expiration date. If that all checks out, I wouldn't worry.
