Voltaren Gel and Flector Patch will be the first TOPICAL Rx NSAIDs to be commercially available for pain

Voltaren Gel and Flector Patch will be the first TOPICAL Rx NSAIDs to be commercially available for pain...early in 2008.

Both Voltaren Gel and Flector Patch contain diclofenac...the anti-inflammatory pain medicine found in oral Voltaren tablets.

Some pharmacies compound other topical NSAIDs...usually ketoprofen, piroxicam, or ibuprofen. These are used as alternatives to oral NSAIDs for local pain relief.
