Be Ready to Answer Questions About OTC Diclofenac 1% Gel
You'll get questions at discharge about topical NSAIDs, since diclofenac 1% gel (Voltaren Arthritis Pain) will be OTC.
Other topical NSAIDs for pain, diclofenac 1.3% patch (Flector) and 1.5% and 2% solution (Pennsaid), will stay Rx-only for now.
But some of the generic Rx topical NSAIDs can cost hundreds of dollars per package. Expect OTC diclofenac gel to cost less.
