Voltaren Emulgel Extra Strength gives you 12 hours of freedom from treating your pain because it contains twice the amount of diclofenac as Voltaren Emulgel Original. The extra strength formula allows more of the anti-inflammatory medicine to penetrate deep, right at the source of pain. Voltaren Emulgel Extra Strength also has a special permeation enhancer, which assists the diclofenac to pass through the skin faster as compared to Voltaren Emulgel Original. It then creates a reservoir of medicine that is released over an extended period of time giving you 12 hours between treatments.
Always read and follow the label to ensure this product is right for you.

Unfortunately this is unusable for me as it contains strong perfume. If you're not sensitive to scents, you'll probably find it quite mild but I have chemical sensitives and this gave me a roaring headache and an afternoon in bed after trying it for just 5 mins; had to wash it off. Smells feminine and "perfume-y" btw versus the menthol scents of most topicals.
Shame as I've heard good things from this from people with fibromyalgia and arthritis (I have both). Checked Voltaren's website and, sadly, they don't offer a fragrance-free version which is crazy as a lot of fibro sufferers are sensitive to perfumes.
My second dud Well.ca purchase this month due to unnecessarily-added perfumes but totally my fault; I'll have to start reading labels more closely. Well.ca is very good about including ingredients lists.

I have neuropathy in my feet. Recently I got a blister on my toe, the neuropathy caused the toe to be extremely painful from the nerve activity. It kept me awake for 2 nights and it was painful to walk. I had tried a couple of topical cremes in my cupboard; nothing worked. Then I tried the Volteran Gel, in no time at all the pain subsided and it was fine the next day. So from now on when the neuropathy is causing pain in my feet I will be using Volteran Gel for relief. An amazing product.
