Sorry, when it comes to foreign drugs it is very hard to find any information to give you on them, they are just not regulated like drugs approved in the U.S. are.

The only thing I can recommend is that you speeak to your doctor or pharmacist and ask them for more information.

I have been given Voltaren and have used Alieve, but neither has helped my severe shoulder pain. The doctor states my condition is tendanitis or bursitis. Could this drug help?

I regularly take the generic version - called Ritradol for gout attacks and severe knee pain. It does a fantastic job. No noted side effects, but I only take it twice a day with meals for one week at a time. I would not recommend it as a long-term daily solution, only when you feel a gout attack coming on. Thank goodness I'm close to Mexico and can buy this when needed. I had been taking Indomethicin when gout attacks occured (prescribed by a US doctor). A Mexican pharmacist suggested this a better solution and it has worked out well for me. I believe the small amount of steroid in it (betamethasone) makes all the difference for my knee/joint pain.

I was introduced to Artridol back in February of 2009 to help eliminate left hand/joint pain. Within two days my hand was once again working which allowed me to, again, play guitar which i have done professionally for 40 years. It works and I now take a generic version almost every day which I purchased in Mexico.

I could not lift my arm. One shot (which really-really hurt) and within 15 minutes I was getting relief. That has been 1 year and still fine. When the Arthritis in my right hand becomes worse I will definately return to Betametasona - shot and all.

betametasona is a steriod as with all medicine steriods serve a purpose if not abused. We just got back from Brazil and my son was given this medicne combined with other medicne by a brazilian doctor. It looks as if he has chicken pox. I am not familar with the other medicines mentioned here that contain betametasona but this formula only has .05 ml per dose.

Yes it is for arthritis. I got Artridol from my dr in mex and have had more relief from using it then any other meds. Even better then the normal pain meds like codeine and tramadol. But my concern is if my company does a random drug panel will this come up as a problem? I can't seem to find out anyone know if it will??? Thank you
