Voltaren (Volterol) Medicated Plaster provides powerful efficacious pain relief in a plaster format.
Unlike heat patches, the plaster contains an anti-inflammatory. It penetrates deep to the source of pain to provide powerful pain relief.
The Voltaren Medicated Plaster provides up to two times more powerful deep down pain relief, compared to a non-medicated, non-heated placebo patch.
The plaster also provides 12 hours continuous release of the active ingredient (diclofenac) to the site of pain. This means the plaster only needs to be applied once in the morning and once in the evening to provide effective pain relief.
The plaster format also means the product is very discreet: it is odourless and sticks firmly, whilst being only 1mm thin and very flexible.
How to use it
Voltaren Medicated Plaster provides powerful efficacious pain relief in a plaster format.
Voltaren Medicated Plaster should not be used at the same time as other diclofenac-containing medicines or other topical or oral NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen or aspirin.
One medicated plaster should be applied to the painful area twice daily, in the morning and in the evening. The maximum daily dose is 2 medicated plasters, even if there is more than one injured area to be treated. Therefore, only one painful area can be treated at a time.
