Launch of Generic Voltaren 1% Gel

Released: 03/28/2016   By: Carl Richie, Pharmacy Director

The generic equivalent of Voltaren 1% topical gel (diclofenac sodium) has just been released, following FDA approval. Voltaren 1% topical gel is used to treat joint pain by reducing hormones in the body that cause inflammation and pain. Like the brand Voltaren, the generic diclofenac sodium 1% topical gel is available in a 100gm tube form.

Generic prescription drugs approved by the FDA have the same high quality and strength as brand name drugs. Generic prescription drug manufacturing and packaging sites must pass the same quality standards as those of brand name drugs.

Over the next 30 days, Carlisle Medical will be contacting physicians to inform them that the generic version of Voltaren 1% topical gel is available.
