– back pain in inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the spine (sciatica, osteoarthritis, lumbago, sciatica); – pain in the joints (including joints of the fingers, knees) in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis; – muscle pain (due to stretching, overvoltage, bruises, injuries); – inflammation and swelling of the soft tissues and joints due to injuries and rheumatic diseases (tendonitis, bursitis, defeat periarticular tissues, CTS).
Interaction with other drugs
Voltaren® Emulgel® can enhance the action of drugs that cause photosensitization. Clinically significant interactions with other drugs has not been described.
Due to the low systemic absorption when applied to the gel, overdose unlikely. Symptoms: Accidental ingestion may develop systemic side effects. Treatment of overdose Accidental ingestion: gastric lavage, induction of vomiting, activated charcoal, symptomatic therapy. Dialysis and diuresis are not effective in view of the high degree of binding to plasma proteins diclofenac (about 99%).
pharmachologic effect
Pharmacological group:
NSAIDs for external application. Diclofenac has a pronounced analgesic and anti-inflammatory and antipyretic action. Non-selectively inhibiting the COX-1 and COX-2, gives the metabolism of arachidonic acid. Voltaren® Emulgel® used to eliminate pain and inflammation in the joints, muscles and ligaments of traumatic or rheumatic origin, helping to reduce pain and swelling associated with inflammation, increasing joint mobility. Due to its water-alcohol-based Voltaren® Emulgel® providing soothing and cooling effect.
Absorption Number diclofenac absorbed through the skin, proportional to the treated surface area and depends on the total dose of drug applied and the degree of skin hydration. After application to the skin surface area of ​​400 cm2 Voltaren® Emulgel® gel for topical application of 2% (two per day application), the concentration of active substance in plasma corresponds to its concentration by using 1% diclofenac gel (4 in the drawing day). On the 7th day relative bioavailability (AUC ratio) is 4.5% (equivalent to doses of diclofenac sodium salt). When wearing moisture-permeable dressings absorption did not change. Distribution When applying the preparation on the area of ​​the affected joint, the concentration of diclofenac in plasma, synovial membrane and synovial fluid. Cmax in the plasma was about 100 times lower than after oral administration of the same amount of diclofenac. diclofenac Binding to plasma proteins is 99.7%, mainly to albumin (99.4%). Diclofenac advantageously distributed and retained in deep tissues prone to inflammation, such as joints, where its concentration is 20 times higher than in plasma. Metabolism Metabolism diclofenac is achieved partly by glucuronidation unmodified molecule, but preferably by means of single and multiple hydroxylation which leads to the formation of several phenolic metabolites, most of which is converted to glucuronide conjugates. Two phenolic metabolites are biologically active, but to a much lesser extent than diclofenac. Excretion Total systemic plasma clearance of diclofenac is 263 ± 56 mL / min. The final T1 / 2 of 1-2 hours. The T1 / 2 of metabolites including two pharmacologically active, and also of short duration is 1-3 hours. One of the metabolites (3′-hydroxy-4′-metoksidiklofenak) has a longer T1 / 2, however, this metabolite is completely inactive. Most of diclofenac and its metabolites are excreted in the urine.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding
Due to the lack of use of the drug Voltaren® Emulgel® data in pregnancy, the use of the drug in I and II trimesters of pregnancy is recommended only on prescription by comparing the benefits to the mother and the risk to the fetus. The drug is contraindicated in III trimester due to the possibility of lowering the tone of the uterus, fetal renal function disorders with subsequent development of water scarcity and / or premature closure of the fetal blood flow. In the absence of data on the release of the active drug substance Voltaren® Emulgel® in breast milk, the drug should not be used during breastfeeding. If you need to use the drug, it should not be applied to the breasts or to a large surface of the skin and do not use for a long time. Data on the effect of the drug on fertility are not available.

Dosing and Administration
The drug is used topically. Adults and children over 12 years of drug applied to the skin 2 times / day (every 12 hours: preferably in the morning and evening), gently rubbing into the skin. The required amount of the drug depends on the size of the painful area. A single dose – 4.2 g (that is comparable in volume correspondingly to the size of a walnut or cherry) – sufficient for treatment zone area of ​​400-800 cm2. If the hands are not the area of ​​localization of pain after application of the drug need to be cleaned. The duration of treatment depends on the indication and celebrated effect. The gel should not be used longer than 14 days post-traumatic inflammation and rheumatic diseases of soft tissues without doctor’s advice. If after 7 days of application of the therapeutic effect is not observed or the condition worsens, the patient should seek medical advice.
