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.

I have a compounded cream that is neurontin, ketoprofen, flexeril and lidocaine. Same with me. I use it when I really need it.

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?
