    Hey guys, just wanted to share my life-saving pain cream-Voltaren Gel. It is prescription and costs about $30.00, but it is well worth it. It works for FM pain and arthritis pain.

    This is my last contribution here. ; ( YES YES AND YES Voltaren cream is the Best ever!. Works right away and the pain relief last and last. I put a post on about the new cream last week. I just got mine two weeks ago and it works like a charm. If you all can get your PCP or Rheumy to script it, it's a NASAD.. please do so. It's a God send. Thank you so much medical science!

    Have not tried Voltaren, but another compound (RX) I can recommend is KETOSTAT.
    Is a combination of Baclofen, Neurontin, Flexeril and Lidocaine, and is a LIFESAVER for me...
    just a little bit, and has no odor.
    Great stuff !

    I just googled the side effects of this drug, it kind of scares me though. I already have GI issues and have family history of everything else. I use Aloe Life vanilla heat rub works well enough and its all natural.

    FYI for those in the FMily who's insurance won't pay for Voltaren Gel you can have your doctor send the script to a compound store ( yup there still around ) and have them make up the same thing as Voltaren Gel, without the name brand lable, for as little as 25 dollars. I know cause thats what happened to me a few weeks ago.

    I swear by Voltaren /generic compound and thank God some one figured out that it would be useful for for those of us with Fibro.

    I have spinal stenosis. My pharmacist is making me a compound very similar to the one you described. He told me it works very well & won't cause side effects like pills. Do you have any side effects from this?
