NSAID allergy: Voltaren (diclofenac) is a member of the group of anti-inflammatory medications called non-steroidals. Some patients with reactions to these react to several of them, and some react only to a particular one. People who react to many can usually still receive a medication called trilisate or choline magnesium trisalicylate. It does not cross-react with Aspirin or other nsaids. Steroids can also be used.
