Voltaren Rapide Description

Voltaren Rapide or generic Diclofenac Potassium, is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID) prescribed for short-term treatment of mild to moderately severe pain and inflammation that has occurred due to a sprain, extraction of a tooth, and painful menstrual cycles. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

The only difference between Voltaren Rapide and Voltaren is the latter contains Diclofenac Sodium which is slower acting. When you have sprained your ankle or wrist, the pain can be terrible and you’ll want something to take that pain away fast while reducing any swelling and inflammation. You’ll want Voltaren Rapide. Treatment is usually recommended for no longer than two weeks as NSAIDs can cause gastrointestinal problems.

Voltaren Rapide - Fast Relief from Pain and Inflammation

When taken as directed, Voltaren Rapide will work to inhibit a certain enzyme called cyclo-oxygenase, or COX. This will reduce the production of prostaglandins, chemicals responsible for causing inflammation. There are two cyclo-oxygenase enzymes, COX-1 and COX-2; the first is found in most cells and is responsible, in part, for maintaining your stomach lining; the second is produced as a response to your immune system signaling that there is an injury which causes the inflammation. Although Voltaren Rapide is non-selective and affects both Cox-1 and -2, it is less effective at inhibiting COX-1 so you have a lower incidence of gastrointestinal problems as other non-selective COX inhibitor drugs.

More Reasons for Taking Voltaren Rapide

Primary dysmenorrhea is the medical term for painful period cramps. Each month, many women experience such extreme cramping and pain during the first few days of their cycle that they find it hard to go to work, school, keep appointments, sleep, and just want relief. The cramping is caused by the contractions of your uterus, which is a muscle. If these contractions are too strong, your uterus can press against blood vessels and interfere with the supply of oxygen to its muscle tissue. Secondary dysmenorrhea is caused by a disorder involving a woman’s reproductive organs. These include endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, fibroids, or a narrowing of the cervix called stenosis.

Before You Take Voltaren Rapide

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding before taking Voltaren Rapide as it may cause harm to your unborn or nursing baby. Talk about other medical conditions or allergies you have with your doctor, and list any OTC and Rx medications you are on, including herbal remedies and diet or vitamin supplements so it can be determined if Voltaren Rapide is safe to take.

Voltaren Rapide Precautions

If you are taking Voltaren Rapide as a long-term medicine for the pain and inflammation caused by arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis, use the lowest strength available to reduce your risk of gastric problems. Stop taking Voltaren Rapide and see your doctor right away if you have vomited a substance that looks like coffee grounds or your stools look black.
