I have a fracture in my toe and I have past substance abuse problems so I got volataren but its not working well I am in a lot of pain, any advice?

Voltarin is an NSAID. & is not appropriate 4 pain. Plain old Tylenol (acetaminophen) is 4 pain. u can take no more than 3500mg/day. Half life is +/- 4-6hrs so divide it up to Ur own need. If worse @ nite, take largest dose then. BUT B sure 2 add other sources of Tylenol (acetaminophen) U may B taking in other OTC or Rx meds. Voltarin would B 4 arthritis/tendinitis, or other inflammatory conditions. Good Luck.
