I use the generic Diclofenac XR. Recently had a motorcycle accident and broke my back. Initially after the accident I was taking Hydrocodone, but for obvious reasons needed to start a walking regimen and the pain in ankles and knees again surfaced. I went back on the Diclofenac and the pain in joints (not the back) went away. I now walk 3 miles a day.

Recently began taking this medicine for worsening wrist pain. The pain eased after the first day. Wish I would have talked to my doctor about this sooner. Could have avoided the pain I've had for the last 2 years.

Comment:
I have taken Voltaren for my plantar fasciitis pain. I am careful to take it on a full stomach and usually have no stomach upset. On the downside, I have noticed increased hot flashes when using this regularly for more than a few days. Although I do not like the risks associated with NSAIDS, this medicine worked to alleviate my foot pain when nothing else did.
