The 180g Voltarol Emulgel pack is enough for a "two-week flare-up"

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has added a 180g pack of Voltarol Emulgel P to its range of topical pain relief products.

Voltarol Emulgel P is a diclofenac diethylammonium gel that can "relieve pain and inflammation in osteoarthritis of the joints", the manufacturer said.

The new pack size – launched at the beginning of March – will supply a patient with enough gel "for a two-week flare-up", GSK added.

The gel is already available in 30g, 50g and 100g tubes.

Alongside the product launch, Voltarol is working with charity Arthritis Research UK to share a programme of exercises to "help people manage their mild osteoarthritis and keep moving", GSK said.

One 180g pack of Voltarol Emulgel P retails at £19.99.

Hurray, another white elephant to gather dust alongside the Nexium Control 20mg! Now if they did OTC co-codamol in packs of 100, that would fly off the shelf!

100 pack of Nurofen Plus. Onto a winner.

I would struggle a bit to sell this to someone with that price. It's like Curanail. Everyone will just get referred to the doctor for a prescription if history is to be repeated.
