Treating your pain

Pain relief during pregnancy and breast-feeding

Find out if using Voltarol when you are pregnant or breast-feeding is recommended.

Pain relief and pregnancy

The use of diclofenac in pregnant women has not been studied; therefore, Voltarol Emulgel products should not be used during pregnancy.


It is not known whether topical diclofenac is excreted in breast milk; therefore, Voltarol Emulgel products are also not recommended during breast-feeding.
For further details regarding precautions of using products from the Voltarol range, please consult your doctor or pharmacist.
