Medicines have benefits and some have risks. Always read the label and use only as directed. If symptoms persist or you have side effects see your health professional. Brands and generics both contain the same active ingredient(s) and are medically equivalent. Some brands are marketed under different names by the same manufacturing country depending on the country of origin.
Voltaren SR (diclofenac SR) is the sustained release version of Voltaren, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat mild- to moderately-painful inflammatory conditions.
The SR version is typically taken once or twice per day, while the regular version is taken two to four times per day. On the other hand, the regular version can be split and crushed; Voltaren SR must be swallowed whole.
Like all NSAIDs, Voltaren SR reduces inflammation and the accompanying pain. While it does have some fever-reducing properties, it's not particularly beneficial in that respect and rarely used to lower fever unless accompanied by inflammation. Voltaren SR is also not particularly effective at reducing pain that isn't associated with inflammation, such as diabetic nerve pain.
Taking Voltaren SR
Though limited to painful, inflamed conditions, Voltaren SR is a versatile medication. It is often used to manage pain from acute conditions or to manage flare-ups in chronic conditions, such as:
Dosage and duration of treatment is somewhat variable, though with Voltaren SR dosage is rarely lower than 50 mg and rarely higher than 100 mg in a dose. Patient response is huge factor in dosage strength, assuming there's no preexisting conditions which call for modified dosing. Voltaren SR is usually taken just once per day, though in some instances it can be taken twice per day 12 hours apart.
Treatment should be done at the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time. In lighter pain this may be a few days; for flare-ups in chronic conditions this may span several weeks. Patients, particularly first-time users of Voltaren SR, should not exceed two weeks of consecutive treatment without involvement from a doctor; a doctor can monitor for developing side effects that might otherwise go undetected until severe.
Precautions & Side Effects
Certain individuals are at increased risk of experiencing serious side effects while taking Voltaren SR, even short term. Check with a doctor before starting treatment if there is a history of:
The above conditions don't necessarily rule out use of Voltaren SR, but patients need to be extra alert for warning signs of potential adverse effects.
Most side effects are not dangerous, including:
Less common but more serious side effects from Voltaren SR include:
