Voltarol is a pain medication, used in a wide variety of conditions, ranging from muscle pain, back pain, headaches, or menstrual pain, dental pain, to pain caused by rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, chronic pain associated with cancer, gout attacks, and pain management in cases of kidney stones and gallstones. Voltarol has proven to be useful in the treatment of acute migraines. Voltarol is sometimes prescribed to relieve mild to moderate pain after a trauma or operation, in particular when inflammation is also present.
Voltarol belongs to the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) class, which works in a similar way as other drugs in this class – by blocking the production of certain hormones, responsible for the stimulation of pain and inflammation reactions in the organism. These hormones – prostaglandins – are released when the body’s tissues get damaged, and are a natural response required to start regenerative processes and prevent further damage. Although to do so, they increase the sensations of pain by stimulating the pain receptors within the damaged tissues, as well as causing inflammation and swelling. Voltarol inhibits the production of prostaglandins and thus helps to manage pain and swelling.
The medications on which Voltarol is based have been issued by doctors for more than 30 years. Voltarol represents a new generation of pain medications, a result of advanced study and rigorous research. Unlike it’s predecessor, Voltarol is issued as an OTC (Over The Counter) medication, meaning it can be safely used in most patients to relieve pain, manage fever and reduce inflammation. To further widen the application of Voltarol, it is issued in various forms – tablet, capsules, gel (or cream), or suspension. The store where you buy Voltarol online will have more information on the different types of application.
Although Voltarol is considered a safe to use medication in most patients, it can sometimes cause certain side effects. The risk of such reactions is increased in people with a history of hazardous medical conditions, such as:
- History of heart attack, stroke, or blood clot;
- Seizure disorder such as epilepsy;
- Liver or kidney disease;
- Bleeding or blood clotting disorder;
- Heart disease, high blood pressure;
- History of stomach ulcers or bleeding;
Note that having any of these conditions doesn’t necessarily restrict you to buy Voltarol online and begin taking it, having them only may aggravate the infrequent side effects Voltarol sometimes causes. It is advised that you contact your medical healthcare provider to make sure it is safe to use Voltarol. If you do not have any of the mentioned conditions and wish to get more information on Voltarol safety, either contact your doctor or pharmacist, or review the information sheet, included within the Voltarol medication package.
