Hi, I was just greeted with some great news this afternoon, my insurance carrier called today and informed me that both the Volteren and diclofenac have been approved by my pharmacy carrier indefinetley which made me so very happy. Turns out the volteren worked very well with relieving the pain in my fingers, and I had such a time trying to show and tell my pm doc how to go about getting them approved that on my regular visit yesterday, I stayed and walked her through the entire process and after a couple of trys, she got it.
Seriously, I had gotten 2 sample tubes of the volteren and loved it, now I dont have to worry about running out, as for the diclofenac, she advised me since I have a low to no tolerance for NSAIDS, she gave me extended release at a low dosage. I for one am hoping it helps as my bone density test was not good, not good at all. So good luck to all of us that are trying it, taking it, and tolerating it. (well both its).
