Voltaren - Overview
Voltaren is a medication used for relieving symptoms associated with different types of arthritic conditions. Push Health can connect people who need a Voltaren gel prescription with a licensed medical provider who can prescribe Voltaren medication, including Voltaren cream or Voltaren 75 mg, when appropriate to do so.
What Is Voltaren Used For?
Voltaren prescription medication, like Pennsaid, contains the active ingredient diclofenac sodium. Due to its analgesic effects, Voltaren medication is used orally and topically to help relieve symptoms associated with ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Voltaren belongs to a class of medications known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) - similar to ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), meloxicam (Mobic), and naprosyn (Naproxen). Voltaren's mechanism of action likely involves blocking enzymes that lead to the synthesis of prostaglandin, an inflammatory marker that can increase the sensation of pain.
Voltaren - Dosage and Cost
Voltaren medication is available as Voltaren tablets, Voltaren gel, Voltaren cream and Voltaren Emulgel. When taken orally, Voltaren is often prescribed as Voltaren 100 mg per day and titrated to the specific health needs of the patient. Voltaren is also available as Voltaren 1% gel which is applied to the extremities 2-4 times per day as prescribed by the medical provider. Peak plasma levels following oral administration of Voltaren tablets are more than 150 times that of levels achieved while using Voltaren gel. Generic Voltaren tablets are relatively affordable, costing under 15 cents per Voltaren 75 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Voltaren coupons can sometimes be found through the manufacturer, using a copay card or online. Some insurance plans may also cover costs associated with a Voltaren gel or cream prescription and it is worth checking with them.
Can I Buy Voltaren Online?
Voltaren OTC is available although prescription versions of Voltaren gel, Voltaren cream and Voltaren 75 mg require a consultation with a medical provider before they can be dispensed by a pharmacy. For these forms of Voltaren medication, one cannot just buy Voltaren online without first getting a Voltaren prescription from a licensed provider. People who might need a Voltaren prescription, however, can use Push Health to connect with a provider who can prescribe Voltaren medication, including Voltaren Emulgel, when appropriate.
Voltaren - Side Effects
Before using Voltaren prescription medication, it is important to discuss concerns and possible side effects with a medical provider and pharmacist. Side effects that may occur from Voltaren gel use include pain and redness at the application site, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, itching, headache and constipation. Voltaren medication should not be used by people who have had a coronary artery bypass graft surgery in the past. People with a known hypersensitivity or allergy to Voltaren or ingredients in the formulation should not use the medication. Voltaren prescription medication and alcohol should not be used together.
