Voltaren Osteo Gel 12 Hourly is for the temporary relief of local pain and inflammation in mild forms of osteoarthritis of the knees and fingers. Features an easy-to-open cap designed to make opening the tube easier for people suffering from osteoarthritis.
Voltaren Osteo Gel 12 Hourly contains the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), diclofenac. Diclofenac works to relieve pain and reduce inflammation (swelling). The patented technology in Voltaren Osteo Gel 12 Hourly helps the gel to penetrate deeply into the skin to enhance delivery of diclofenac to the site of pain. Voltaren Osteo Gel 12 Hourly has no strong odours.
It contains twice the amount of diclofenac as Voltaren Osteo Gel, so it only requires application once every 12 hours.
Active Ingredients: Diclofenac Dietyhlammonium 23.2mg/g
Dosage: Adults and children over 12 years: Rub the gel gently into the affected area. Apply twice a day (preferably morning and evening). The amount you will need will depend on the size of the affected area. Usually an amount ranging in size from a cherry to a walnut will be enough. Use for up to three weeks, if needed.
