Smile Voltaren gel

Hi everyone. I was recently given a script for Voltaren gel for hip pain. Would like to have the input of anyone who has used it. Did it work for you? Did you just use it when you had a flare-up or all the time? Did you have any side effects? Thanks! SeptemberDay.

Re: Voltaren gel

I've been using this for years (end-stage patella-femoral arthritis). It helps me and it doesn't have the negative effects on your stomach. I use it 2-3 times a day when my pain is really bad. Sometimes I just use it in the morning after I've done my exercises. I have NOT used it consistently (like pain management)...but lately I've been using using it 2 times a day about 4 times a week. I hope this helps.....
