@Jinxknit- I've heard that the Voltaren is good for knees, but my arthritis is in my spine/neck. Plus I'm being treated for BP so I'm cautious. I'll as my doc, but I'm afraid I don't have much faith in them most of the time. :/
Jan, I use it in my neck and upper shoulders (traps), but only if I'm having a really bad day. It works well for any arthritic part, and it doesn't smell awful. But my copay even w/ insurance was $50. It was a 100 gram tube and I've had it for a year, it's about half used up. I love ibuprofen but it makes me bruise like crazy; also tough on stomach and kidneys. Between good posture, ergonomic remodel at work, stretching/yoga, Voltaren and Cymbalta I'm a much happier camper.
