Zorvolex (diclofenac) for Osteoarthritis: "I am 38 years old with 4 small kids. I've recently been diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hips and most likely my knees. I was also having significant shoulder and heel pain. Within 2 days of starting this medication I would say I was 75% better. Now after 1 month I feel better than I have felt in years. I am amazed that 1 medication can work this well. I have not noticed any side effects."

Zipsor (diclofenac) for Back Pain: "I've had herniated discs for 5 years and the back and nerve pain can be really intense and debilitating. Started using Zipsor about 18 months ago and it makes it possible for me to live. I'm so grateful for this product, and I hope I never have to stop taking it for any reason!"

Cambia (diclofenac) for Migraine: "This is a miracle! I've had migraines since I was 6, diagnosed with chronic daily migraines when I was 14 and have not been able to find a reprieve from the pain. On a scale of 1 to 10 my pain is usually around a 4 on a good day and a 8 or 9 on a bad one. On a bad day I take a dose of Cambia and an Imitrex subcutaneous injection and it completely knocks out my migraine! In all my years of having migraines I never thought that was possible. Even when I don't take the injection the Cambia alone brings a level 8 migraine down to a 3 which is manageable."

Zorvolex (diclofenac) for Osteoarthritis: "I have tried 3 other medications and this is the only one that worked well for me. All others were either too strong, causing stomach pain, or they would help for a few hours, then the pain would come back. Moving around was easier and I had no side effects from this medication. Answer to my prayers!"

For Period Pain: "This morning (my first day) I was shaking and in tears. That's how bad my cramps have become during the past year. I was given a diclofenac (voltaren) injection 30 min ago and now am almost completely at ease. Considering that I'd tried nearly everything (ibuprofen, panadol ex, buscopan, spasm relaxers etc etc), I'm umderstandably excited and can't wait to share this. I tried the tablets last month and this morning but they aren't as effective as the injection. My advice is if it's debilitating - definetely go for the injection ASAP. Don't wait."

For Pain: "I was diagnosed with gout at age 25. I tried numerous over the counter and homeopathic remedies over the years. This is by far the best for my gout flare-ups. I take 100mg every three hours until pain subsides. Usually one tablet, sometimes two, but never any more. Going on 10 years now. Its a miracle for my infliction. Only side effects is a little diarrhea sometimes."

For Osteoarthritis: "I have been taking diclofenac for 2 1/2 months for moderate osteoarthritis of the hip. It does not alleviate the pain. I am unhappy with the results and will probably ask my doctor to refer me to an orthopedic surgeon for better treatment options."

For Ankylosing Spondylitis: "I use Voltaren since I was 30 years old due to ankylosis spondylitis pain . I am now 56. I use to take 100 mg SR per day. For the last 3 years I have reduced to 1x50D mg per day and really feel very comfortable. I found it very effective and I didn't noticed any side effects yet. I think that Voltaren helped me to keep my ankylosis under contol. Doctor told me to avoid using it for so long but the pain was coming back the next day. I don't know what problems I may face in future but my life quality is good and I am happy."

For Osteoarthritis: "Started on Meloxicam 15mg and it did nothing. Was in so much pain in my knees that i called my Dr. and he prescribed Diclofenac sodium DM 75 mg twice a day. I have been on this med for 5 days now. It helped with the pain, but I don't know if I can deal with the side effects of muscle aches, irritability, weakness, fatigue,stomach issues. It is seeming like the side effects are winning. I can not continue to take this medication. I will be contacting my Dr. and giving him the details and will need to try something else, does anyone have any suggestions on a different medication?"

For Osteoarthritis: "Only been taking this medication for (2) days now. I can tell a difference already. Had been taking Hydrocodone for quite some time and felt like I had to increase the dose to not feel pain from my OA. I'm hoping this RX continues to work for me for awhile. I am worried about the possible side effects as they seem very scary."

Voltaren (diclofenac) for Pain: "Voltaren Gel has given me back the ability to walk without pain. I have had heel Spurs and plantar fasciitis and bursitis in my heel for about 20 years. I began using Voltaren Gel about 10 months ago and am so thankful that I have not had any significant pain for the past six months. I also try to wear only shoes that have very high arches. With the Voltaren Gel, I massage it all around my foot and over the top and bottom as per the directions. Great stuff!!!"

For Osteoarthritis: "I have had severe to moderate knee and ankle pain from Osteoarthritis and was taking two 50 mgs of tramadol a day to get through the day at work. Then a co-worker told me about diclofenac and how it was a wonder drug for him so I asked my doctor to let me try the drug. I have taken other anti inflamitories before but they didn't seem to help but this drug has been fantastic. I have been able to work out again and it has really reduced the amount of knee and ankle pain I get. I take two 75 mgs tablets a day and have not had any side effects and I have been taking it for about 3 months. I would recommend this drug to anyone who has arthritis pain"

Voltaren (diclofenac) for Pain: "I have an undiagnosed arthritic condition in my upper back and neck. I've been to a pain specialist that threw strong drugs at me that didn't work. I'm seeing a rheumatologist for a diagnosis (possibly fibromyalgia my GP said) in a couple months but my general practitioner has been treating me til then. I've tried 3 different prescription medications and they did nothing. The second day on this medication I started getting some relief in my back. It's not 100% gone but it really eases my pain. The unfortunate side effect with any nsaid is thin blood resulting in bruising. I have a bleeding autoimmune disorder so it's not the best combo. But I feel like as a first there's promising relief. I hope it continues."

For Migraine: "I just started to take cataflam/diclofenac, for rhumathoid arthritis, so I really can't tell you how it works for me, but I just want to say I've been taking the prescription medicine Zoming 2.5mg. For my migraine headaches and it's been a miracle drug for me. It has been almost 30 years since I've been on it! Just make sure when you take it, try to eat a piece of toast or something little. I take it on a empty stomach. My pain is gone within the hour, but then I start to get hungry and tired. I don't care because I feel better, thepain is gone!!!!! :-)"
