    HI Gayle

    have found it useful for painful muscles on its own ,if my hip joint is playing up as well I use it at the same time as taking solpadeine max , mainly at night or if I am at home as the tablets can make you a bit sleepy.

    Hoping that you find relief

    Yes, been using the gel for years. Doesn't kill the pain but certainly on my knees, particularly before bed. Am nearly 5 months post right tkr and i find it can help. just massaging it around the knee. Also helps my left knee which I'm supposed to also have tkr. Not rushing to do that just yet. i take b.p tablets but thr computer never shows a clash with these and the declofenac/voltaren gel.

    I've used it from time to time. It didn't do anything for my knees before surgery, but has helped after. I think it's unlijelt to penetrate far, but helps with soft tissue oain that's nearer the surface.

    In the US it's called Voltaren Gel and is by prescription only. Worked pretty well for me using it around 3x/day. Gotta wait for the incision to heal before using it on that spot. Fine for the back of the knee and the rest of the leg.

    Second only to "Lotion" available in cannabis-legal states. That stuff is the absolute best. Pain gone in five minutes.
