I've been taking Voltaren for my arthritis, then my doctor increased the dosage after he diagnosed me with fibro.  He's not a rheumy.  I did test positive for 16 of the trigger points, sleep problems, etc.  I don't doubt the diagnoses.  Been this way forever.  I just am worried about taking Voltaren after reading the warnings (cardiovascular problems).  I am already high risk because of my family history and blood pressure.  I think he thought the increased dosage would help the fibro.  I'm not sure that is working.  I wondered if anyone has been helped with their fibro by taking Voltaren.  The nighttime anti-depressant that he prescribed is helping me with my sleep problem.  Thanks for any info.

My doctor gives me voltaren for my fibro pain. It helps a little, not enough.

Thanks Donnaeil.
I experimented and stopped taking the voltaren for 4 doses. Well, it apparently does help somewhat because I was miserable yesterday, all last night and this morning. I felt better after taking it today and will take again tonight. I just don't think it helps as much as I would like. I plan to bring this up with the doc when I go in May. I had told him that I wanted to start with the least amount of meds at first, then change as needed. I just worry about the warnings on some of this stuff.
