Product available in 30g, 50g or 100g pack
Voltarol Emulgel Extra Strength gel can be applied twice daily (morning and evening) to last all day because the gel creates a reservoir of diclofenac when applied regularly according to instructions, which gives the skin a source of the active ingredient throughout the day for lasting relief of pain and inflammation. Unlike products that work by just heating or cooling the skin, Voltarol Emulgel Extra Strength contains an anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) called diclofenac which targets pain at its source. Diclofenac works by blocking production of some of the body’s chemicals that cause swelling (inflammation), pain and tenderness. The active ingredient in Voltarol Emulgel Extra Strength gel, diclofenac, has been used as a pain reliever for over 30 years in Ireland.
The Emulgel technology used in this product helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin to enhance delivery of the active ingredient, diclofenac, to the site of pain and swelling. In addition, the Emulgel technology is a combination of a gel and cream providing both a cooling and soothing effect when applied to the skin. The massaging effect of applying the Emulgel can provide additional soothing benefits at the site of pain and inflammation.
Gently rub or massage in a small amount of gel into the skin around painful or swollen area. A quantity ranging in size from a cherry to a walnut will usually be sufficient. However, the amount of gel needed will vary depending upon the size of the painful or swollen area (maximum daily dosage 8g). Apply 2 times daily (preferably morning and evening) unless your doctor or pharmacist tells you otherwise.
