The range includes medicated gels and plasters and a non-medicated heat patch, which also “provide relief for other types of body pain, including muscle and neck pain”, GSK said.
Voltarol Osteoarthritis Joint Pain Relief 1.16% gel contains the active ingredient diclofenac diethylammonium, which is also present in GSK’s Voltarol 12 Hour Joint Pain Relief 2.32% gel, the manufacturer explained.
Voltarol 140mg medicated plasters contain the active ingredient diclofenac sodium, it added.
