With my GI not allowing me to take Celebrex or Meloxicam I have been in alot of pain for arthritis. During my last Remicade infusion the Rheumatologist gave me a script for Voltaren Gel. My GI was not happy but advised me to use it sparingly. It cost 30.00 so I thought I would give it a try. I find it does help a little - especially on my hands and knees but I certainly don't apply it at the recommended 4 times a day. I am using it a couple of times a week at night. So far I haven't had any side effects.
I was wondering if anyone else has tried this gel and did they get a flare or have adverse side effects?
Presently on: 600 mg. Remicade every 5 weeks
Venofer infusion every 5 weeks
B12 every 5 weeks
12 Asacol daily
Zofran as needed
