Voltaren is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that works with the active ingredient, Diclofenac, which inhibits the production of Prostaglandin. It can be ingested orally, applies to the skin, or even injected into the body depending on the purpose it's been used for. It is generally used to reduce pain and treat other inflammatory conditions since it's an anti-inflammatory drug. Voltaren gained prominence in the '80s, became a generic medication for Americans, and ranked among the topmost prescribed drugs in the United States at number 72.
Voltaren generally is used to curb pain, and swelling in the affected area of the body and its effect can last for about 8 hours or more. It can be used by people suffering from the following conditions:
You can ingest the Voltaren tablet just like you do with any other tablet. You can ingest it orally with a glass of water. However, you should swallow it as a whole.

Take after eating or before eating, but not during eating unless recommended by a doctor due to stomach upset. Most Voltaren products for arthritis and inflammatory problems come in the form of creams and lotions that are meant for topical applications. In this case, you can simply rub and use them to massage the affected areas of your body.
