Avoid Typing "Use as Directed" on Topical Diclofenac Rxs
More patients will be using TOPICAL diclofenac (Pennsaid, etc) for treating pain...due to safety concerns with opioids and oral NSAIDs.
Help avoid dispensing mishaps with topical diclofenac.
Prevent product mix-ups...and watch out for different salts and dosage forms. Compounded diclofenac is diclofenac sodium cream or gel...Voltaren Emulgel is diclofenac diethylamine gel...and Pennsaid is diclofenac sodium solution.
