Diclofenac Pharmakern 23.2mg/ml Gel is indicated for the symptomatic treatment (relief of pain, inflammation and swelling) of mild to moderate muscle pain and/or post-traumatic inflammation of tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints (sprains, strains and bruises).
Active substance: 20mg/ml diclofenac.
In inflammation of traumatic or rheumatic origin, diclofenac provides effective pain relief, reduces edema and shortens the time to recovery of normal functioning.
Dosage and method of administration:
Provides lasting relief for up to 12 hours (applied twice a day, morning and evening). It should be gently rubbed into the skin in the affected areas. The amount needed depends on the dimensions of the painful area: 2 g to 4 g of gel (amount whose approximate size varies between a cherry and a walnut) is sufficient to treat an area of approximately 400-800 cm2. After application, you should wash your hands, unless they are the area to be treated.
Do not use without consulting your doctor in case of hypersensitivity to the active substance or to any of the excipients. It is also contraindicated in patients in whom attacks of asthma, urticaria or acute rhinitis are precipitated by acetylsalicylic acid or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
If in doubt or if symptoms persist, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
In accordance with current legislation, non-prescription medicines in Portugal can only be delivered to the municipalities of Maia, Gondomar, Matosinhos, Porto, Santo Tirso, Trofa, Valongo and Vila do Conde. This limitation does not apply to shipments to other Member States of the European Union.
