What is Voltaren Emulgel™?

The Active Ingredient in Voltaren: Diclofenac

Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is often used to treat arthritis pain. It falls in the same class of drugs as naproxen (Aleve). Diclofenac works by temporarily blocking the production of pain-signaling chemicals called prostaglandins.
