Hey, just after some clarification and thought some of you may have the answers
So I have an old shoulder injury (lots of dislocations followed by an operation to stabilise the joint) that has flared up over the last 10 days - your typical over the counter pain meds are not really touching it so I must go and sort a GP/nurse appt out... But the pharmacy assisstant (pharmasist not available) I spoke to yesterday said to try Voltarol gel. After explaining that I had asthma and a problem with asprin, ibruprofen etc she didn't suggest an alternative but did state that with a gel based product I was a lot less likely to have a problem as it would be localised to one area??
I decided not to take the risk!! But does anyone else who has a problem with NSAID's find gels to be ok? I've just never heard this before and wondered what the general consensus was.
