1 doctor agrees

In brief: Like aleve/motrin

Voltaren is a branded antiiflammatory medicine called diclofenac, in the same family as aleve/motrin etc.
.. It is a tad bit stronger with somewhat higher incidence of side effects (mostly gastrointestinal symptoms/liver abnormality etc..) it has very much the same indication as these two medicine, unfortunately only available (as a gel form too) by prescription. Consult doc. Good luck.
