Reviews for Voltaren

MaggieandMe May 29, 2008

“I have rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and also arthritis in my neck and spine. I take the 100 mg tablet and it works just fine for me. I take it with Zantac 150 to protect my stomach. I only need 1 pill a day. If in severe pain, I will also take a muscle relaxer called Norflex and I am able to rest and function and get much needed relief.”

“This Voltaren is a total scam! Too expensive and doesn’t work. You have control over my online reviews and can delete at Will....But you cannot control my mouth, and I will give reviews every chance I get!”

“I take a combination of 50mg Voltaren for the rheumatoid arthritis once per day and 200mg Plaquenil for Sjogrens twice per day. I started with 100 mg's Voltaren, but thought that was too much so I had the doctor prescribe 50mg twice per day. I just take one unless I need more.”

“I tried Voltaren once yesterday on my knee. I used less than the 2 inches recommended. In a short time, my face turned bright red like a sunburn. I am returning this to the store and will not use again.”

“The doctor prescribed me this medicine to take for a week. It helps to reduce the pain for only short period of time. The good thing is I don't get any side effects except mild diarrhea.”

“Given to me on a cruise when I had swelling in my legs which seemed to be circulation problem, not my rheumatoid arthritis. This had no effect on my swelling.”
