Has anyone else tried this? It just came out this past summer, I guess. And though I had heard of the NSAID, Voltaren, I never knew they made a topical version. The pitch is that the anti-inflamatory medicine goes directly into the inflamed joints. But, my Rheumy dr told me about it and gave me samples when I was there last week.
It is a topical like gel/cream, you just rub it in. And right away it feels cool and slightly numbing, but the decrease in my hand pain after a couple days was amazing! It works on hands, knees, ankles, etc, joints that are close to the skin surface.
The down side is it is expensive and too new to be covered by my insurance. But I am going to fill the prescrition she gave me and pay cash for it.
If anyone has had any experience with it or has a chance to try it out,let me know.
