    Hi, My rhematologist prescribed Voltaren for joint pain when I visited her yesterday.

    Was just wondering if anyone had experience with this drug. Does it help? Any side effects?

    Thanks,
    Twerp

    I've used it for several years. 75 mg seems to help me the most. I have not had any side effects from it.

    Hope this helps!

    Warmly,

    I appreciate your responses. I guess I'll just have to wait and see whether it helps me or not. Hopefully, it will!

    I use it (Diclofenac) with Cytotec 200 mcg. that coats the stomach to prevent stomach problems. It is the same med as Arthrotec. I take 100 mg. of Diclofenac after dinner with 200 mcg. of Cytotec. It helps my normal burning pain. The reason I don't take 75 mg. is my doc changed my Rx to 50 mg. 3 x a day and I don't eat 3 x a day, so can only take it after I eat.

    I don't notice any side effects.

    Hugs,
