What is Voltarol 140mg Medicated Plaster?
Voltarol 140mg Medicated Plaster is a medicine that relieves pain. It belongs to a group of medicines known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
Voltarol 140 mg Medicated Plaster is used for the local symptomatic and short term treatment of pain associated with acute strains, sprains or bruises on the arms and legs as a result of injuries, e.g. sports injuries in adolescents from 16 years of age and adults.
You must talk to a doctor if you do not feel better or if you feel worse after 7 days.
How does Voltarol 140mg Medicated Plaster work
Unlike heat patches, the plaster contains an anti-inflammatory. It penetrates deep to the source of pain to provide powerful pain relief. The Voltarol Medicated Plaster provides up to two times more powerful deep down pain relief, compared to a non-medicated, non-heated placebo patch. The plaster also provides 12 hours continuous release of the active ingredient (diclofenac) to the site of pain. This means the plaster only needs to be applied once in the morning and once in the evening to provide effective pain relief. The plaster format also means the product is very discreet: it is odourless and sticks firmly, whilst being only 1mm thin and very flexible.
How to use Voltarol 140mg Medicated Plaster
Attach one medicated plaster to the painful area twice daily, one in the morning and one in the evening.
Voltarol Medicated Plaster can be worn under clothing. To apply the plaster remove one of the two protective films, then apply to the area to be treated and remove the remaining protective film. Apply slight pressure with the palm of your hand until the plaster sticks firmly to your skin. The maximum daily dosage is 2 medicated plasters, even if there is more than one painful area to be treated, only treat one painful area at a time.
Voltarol Medicated Plaster should not be used at the same time as other diclofenac-containing medicines or other topical or oral NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen or aspirin. Do not use the plaster for longer than 7 days. Consult your doctor if pain and swelling do not improve or worsen within 7 days. Use for the shortest time required to relieve pain. The plaster is not recommended for use in children under 16 years of age.
Contains diclofenac sodium. Always read the label.
