Voltaren Emulgel Overdosage

diclofenac

Manufacturer:

GSK Consumer Healthcare

Distributor:

Zuellig
Full Prescribing Info
Overdosage
The low systemic absorption of topical diclofenac makes an overdose very unlikely.
However, adverse reactions, similar to those observed following an overdose of Voltaren tablets, can be expected if Voltaren Emulgel is inadvertently ingested (1 tube of 100 g contains the equivalent of diclofenac sodium 1000 mg). General supportive measures and symptomatic treatment should be employed as in other cases of intoxication with NSAIDs. Gastric decontamination and the use of activated charcoal should be considered, especially within a short time of ingestion.
