Is expired Voltaren gel safe to use?

My voltaren gel expired 7/13. Is it still safe to use? ## Hello, Phyllis! How are you? It doesn't get dangerous after it expires, but it will likely no longer be effective.

Voltaren gel is a topical NSAID that's used to treat pain and swelling. Side effects to topical use are usually limited to skin reddening and irritation.

voltaren gel 3 cost

My husband has been prescribe voltaren gel 3% for severe arthritis. The cost is $1100.00. Insurance won't pay and we can't afford the cost. It was prescribed as a topical because he can't take Ibuprofen in any other form. A month ago he had a severe bleed out from an ulcer caused by Ibuprofen. Lost 8 units of blood and almost died. We need help with the cost of the drug. Any suggestions? ## I would google medication and search out manufacturer coupons. You may want to contact the company directly and for their assistance. Try your local pharmacists and see if they could help you obtain coupons from the company. ## My husband went to Walmart today and told them he has no insurance. (He doesn't). He got the generic for $10. It's exactly the same. ## I am shocked at you...

proper disposal of Voltaren gel

How do I dispose of Voltaren gel if I do not have used coffee grounds or kitty litter? Walgreens was not helpful with this question... ## If you take it in to them, they should be able to dispose of it for you. I've never known a pharmacy to refuse doing so. Alternatively, since this is not something that is commonly abused, the NIH does state that you could just leave it in it's own sealed container and throw it in with your regular trash. Another option is to ask a local coffee place if they would mind giving you some used grounds that you can use to get rid of it. Is this the only medication you have to dispose of?

Voltaren gel interaction with ibuprofen

I just put voltaren gel (about one inch) on my friend and he also had ibuprofen 400mg; what is the likelihood that this will cause an adverse reaction? ## The risks aren't very high, since the not much of the topical gel is absorbed, but if he starts to get severe stomach pain, or vomiting blood, he should seek medical attention, according to the NIH. Have they both been prescribed for him? Other side effects may include headache, skin irritation, redness, and dryness.

Can A Person Take Voltaren And Aleve Together

My husband has had 5 way bypass. What are the dangers of Voltaren Aleve or heart medication if he take it at the same time ## Can you post back with the specific heart medications? I can't check any information on them, without knowing what they are, because there are many on the market. As to the Aleve and Voltaren, no, they should not be used t the same time. Aleve contains Naproxen and Voltaren contains Diclofenac and these are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories that are used to treat the same conditions, so it is essentially doubling up on the medication. Using them both at the same time will seriously increase the risk of some side effects, such as nausea, stomach irritation, ulcers and gastritis.

Voltaren gel on eyelids

Can I use Voltaren gel on the skin beneath my eyebrows and possibly on my eyelids for inflammation I have there due to Sjogren's Syndrome? ## Hello, Shira! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you're having.
