Voltaren Rapid is a proven pain reliever. The active ingredient of Voltaren Rapid is diclofenac, a nonsteroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID). Diclofenac works by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, an enzyme vital in the production of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins play an important role in inflammation. Thus diclofenac helps to control fever, pain and inflammation. Voltaren Rapid is for the temporary relief of:
- Muscular and rheumatic pain, backache, period pain, headache and dental pain.
- Symptoms of colds and flu.
DirectionsSwallow whole with water.
Adults and children over 14 years: 2 tablets, then 1 or 2 tablets every 4 to 6 hours as necessary (maximum 6 tablets in 24 hours). See enclosed leaflet for further information.
