  • Does the pain relief from Voltarol 12 Hour Joint Pain Relief Gel last all-day?

    Voltarol 12 Hour Joint Pain Relief Gel requires only two applications per day, approximately 12 hours apart (morning and evening), to provide all-day concentrated relief from pain and inflammation. Regular application (according to instructions) creates a reservoir of diclofenac, the active ingredient, deep within the skin – a source of medicine that is available throughout the day.

    Voltarol 12 Hour Joint Pain Relief Gel can provide concentrated all-day pain relief by targeting pain and inflammation at the source. By applying the gel twice a day (morning and evening), a reservoir of diclofenac is formed to give the skin a source of active ingredient that provides long-lasting all-day pain relief (when applied regularly according to instructions). The Emulgel technology used in Voltarol 12 Hour Joint Pain Relief Gel helps the active ingredient diclofenac to penetrate deeply into the skin and reach the site of the pain and swelling.
