Voltarol: Voltarol is topical diclofenac. Orally this is contraindicated. However, the sudies that have been done have shown the serum level to be low with topical agent and less side effects. If you are using on an elbow probably not a problem for a few days. If you are applying to a large surface area, I would advise against.
