Why Dr. Rosen Prescribes Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel

Frequently Asked Questions


  • What is Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel?

    An alternative to pills, Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel is a topical analgesic that targets pain directly at the source to deliver nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicine for powerful arthritis pain relief. Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel is clinically proven to relieve joint pain, reduce stiffness, and improve mobility.

  • How is Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel different from other over-the-counter topical pain relievers?

    Voltaren Gel is the first full prescription strength OTC topical NSAID gel for arthritis pain. Not all topicals treat pain the same way. Unlike most topicals which work by producing a heating or cooling sensation to distract from the pain, Voltaren Gel penetrates deep to relieve arthritis pain caused by inflammation by temporarily blocking the production of pain signaling chemicals.

  • How does Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel differ from topical pain relievers like Biofreeze?

    Biofreeze contains menthol, and like other menthol-containing products, it alleviates pain via counter-irritation, specifically cooling the surface of the skin. Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel instead treats pain by temporarily blocking the production of pain-signaling chemicals called prostaglandins. Additionally, it is developed specifically to relieve arthritis joint pain. Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel is the first full prescription strength OTC topical NSAID gel for arthritis joint pain and has been trusted by doctors and patients in the U.S. for over 10 years. 

  • Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel vs. Diclofenac: What’s the difference?

    With a proven safety profile for 10+ years, Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel is an effective topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) arthritis pain reliever. Diclofenac is the generic name for the active ingredient in Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel. Diclofenac is also available in oral formulations for a broader range of pain indications.

    Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel is made of a smooth, non-greasy formula that combines a gel and cream (Voltaren Emulgel™) for topical application. This specialized formula helps the active ingredient, diclofenac, penetrate through the skin at the site of pain. It is the first full prescription strength OTC topical NSAID gel designed specifically to treat arthritis pain. Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel was previously doctor prescribed in the US for more than a decade but now is available without a prescription.

  • How is Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel different from Aspercreme?

    Aspercreme offers a range of products including lidocaine products (Aspercreme® Lidocaine and Aspercreme® Lidocaine + Aromatherapy). They also offer topical analgesics containing active ingredients like capsaicin or trolamine salicylate (Aspercreme® Original). Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel is a full prescription strength non-steroidal anti-inflammatory gel. The active ingredient in it is diclofenac sodium, a NSAID that works by temporarily blocking the production of pain-signaling chemicals called prostaglandins. Voltaren Arthritis Pain Gel treats pain at the source.
