Description

What is Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel?

Voltarol Back and Muscle gel is a topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug known as an NSAID that can reduce pain and inflammation affecting the joints and muscles. 

How does it work?

The active ingredient diclofenac is specially formulated to be applied to the site of pain, inflammation or swelling. As an NSAID, this ingredient works by reducing the hormones that are causing the discomfort right at the site of the pain/swelling.

Is Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel suitable for me?

If you're experiencing pain or swelling as a result of a muscle or joint injury, including sprains, strains, bruises, backache or sports injuries, Voltarol Gel may be suitable for you. This product is also suitable for relieving pain caused by tendonitis (tennis elbow).

How does Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel work?

The way an over-the-counter (OTC) medication or supplement works depends on the active ingredients it contains, as well as the intended purpose of the product. Generally, OTC medications and supplements are formulated to target specific symptoms, conditions, or to support overall health and well-being.

Laxido work to treat faecal impaction and other issues by providing relief from constipation with the recommended and usual dose.

It is important to drink plenty of water and keep up the regular liquid intake to maintain normal levels of sodium. Stop taking Laxido orange if a serious allergic reaction, severe stomach cramps, abdominal pain or severe diarrhoea occur. Read your patient information leaflet or speak to your doctor for further information. Do not take more than three or more sachets daily or as recommended.

Can Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel be used by children and infants?

Read the information leaflet/label of Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel to find out if it can be used by children/infants. Furthermore, it depends on various factors, including the child's age, weight, health conditions, and the specific product in question. It is essential to exercise caution when administering any medication or supplement to a child.

  1. Read the label: Carefully examine the label or enclosed leaflet of the Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel for information on age restrictions, dosages, and any specific warnings or contraindications for children.
  2. Age-appropriate products: Some OTC medications and supplements are specifically formulated for children, with adjusted dosages and child-friendly forms, such as chewable tablets, liquid suspensions, or gummies. Opt for these products when available and follow the instructions provided for the child's age group.
  3.

Remember to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new medication.

Can I buy Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel from Superdrug?

If you would like to buy Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel, you will need to check availability on the Superdrug website.

Can I buy Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel from Amazon?

Amazon does not always sell all over the counter products such as Voltarol Back & Muscle Gel, that we offer, as they are not a pharmacy service provider.
