Mechanism of action
NSAIDs. Voltaren ® contains Diclofenac sodium, a nonsteroidal substance that has a pronounced anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic effect.
The main mechanism of action of diclofenac, established in the experimental conditions, is the inhibition of the biosynthesis of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins play an important role in the genesis of inflammation, pain and fever.
In vitro, diclofenac sodium at concentrations equivalent to those achieved in the treatment of patients does not inhibit the biosynthesis of cartilage proteoglycans.
In rheumatic diseases, the anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties of Voltaren provide a clinical effect characterized by a significant decrease in the severity of such manifestations of diseases as pain at rest and on movement, morning stiffness and swelling of the joints, as well as an improvement in functional status.

The drug is not recommended for use in the third trimester of pregnancy (possibly suppression of uterine contractility and premature closure of the arterial duct in the fetus).
Solution for i / m administration is not prescribed during pregnancy.
Use of the drug during pregnancy and lactation
Voltaren use during pregnancy is possible only in cases where the expected benefit to the mother outweighs the potential risk to the fetus. The drug is prescribed in the minimum effective dose. As in the case of the use of other prostaglandin synthetase inhibitors, these recommendations are especially important in the third trimester of pregnancy (suppression of uterine contractility and premature closure of the arterial duct in the fetus are possible).
The use of Voltaren in the form of a solution for i / m administration during pregnancy is not recommended.
When Voltarena is taken orally at a dose of 50 mg every 8 hours, diclofenac passes into breast milk, but in such a small amount that there is no reason to expect any undesirable effects in a breastfed baby.

Application for violations of the liver
During the application of Voltaren, careful medical supervision of those patients who have impaired liver function is necessary.
During the use of Voltaren, as well as other NSAIDs, the level of one or more liver enzymes may increase. Therefore, during prolonged therapy with Voltaren, monitoring of liver function is shown as a precautionary measure. If abnormalities in the functional parameters of the liver persist or worsen, or if clinical manifestations of liver disease or other symptoms occur (for example, eosinophilia, rash, etc.), Voltaren should be abolished. It should be borne in mind that hepatitis against the background of the use of Voltaren can occur without prodromal phenomena.
Caution is needed when Voltaren is prescribed to patients with hepatic porphyria, since The drug may provoke attacks of porphyria.
Application for violations of kidney function
Since prostaglandins play an important role in maintaining renal blood flow, special care is required in the treatment of patients with impaired renal function, patients receiving diuretics. In these cases, during the application of Voltaren, monitoring of renal function is recommended as a precautionary measure. Discontinuation of the drug usually leads to the restoration of renal function to the initial level.
During the application of Voltaren, careful medical supervision of those patients who have complaints pointing to gastrointestinal diseases is necessary; having a history of ulcerative lesions of the stomach or intestines; suffering from ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease, as well as having impaired liver function.
During the use of Voltaren, as well as other NSAIDs, the level of one or more liver enzymes may increase. Therefore, during prolonged therapy with Voltaren, monitoring of liver function is shown as a precautionary measure. If abnormalities in the functional parameters of the liver persist or increase, or if clinical manifestations of liver disease or other symptoms occur (including eosinophilia, rash), Voltaren® should cancel.It should be borne in mind that hepatitis against the background of the use of Voltaren can occur without prodromal phenomena.
Caution is needed when Voltaren is prescribed to patients with hepatic porphyria, since The drug may provoke attacks of porphyria.
Since prostaglandins play an important role in maintaining renal blood flow, special care is required when treating patients with impaired heart or kidney function, patients receiving diuretics, as well as patients who have a significant decrease in circulating blood plasma of any etiology, for example, before and after massive surgical interventions. In these cases, during the application of Voltaren, monitoring of renal function is recommended as a precautionary measure. Discontinuation of the drug usually leads to the restoration of renal function to its original level.
Caution must be exercised when applying Voltaren in elderly patients. This is especially true for weakened or low-weight older people; they are recommended to prescribe the drug in the minimum effective dose.
Particular caution should be exercised when the / m administration of Voltaren to patients with bronchial asthma, because of the risk of increased severity of symptoms of the disease.
Against the background of Voltaren's use, gastrointestinal bleeding may occur (for the first time or again) or develop ulceration / perforation of the gastrointestinal tract, accompanied by or not accompanied by precursor symptoms. More serious consequences of these complications may occur in elderly patients.In those rare cases when patients receiving Voltaren®, these complications develop, the drug must be canceled.
The first use of Voltaren, as well as other NSAIDs, in rare cases, allergic reactions can develop, including anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions.
Perhaps the development of hypersensitivity reactions to sodium metabisulfate, which is part of the solution for the / m introduction.
Voltaren®due to its pharmacodynamic properties, it can mask manifestations of infectious diseases.
Voltaren®, as well as other NSAIDs, may temporarily inhibit platelet aggregation. Therefore, in patients with impaired hemostasis, careful monitoring of relevant laboratory parameters is necessary.
With long-term use of Voltaren, like other NSAIDs, systematic monitoring of the pattern of peripheral blood is shown.
Influence on ability to drive motor transport and control mechanisms
Patients who develop dizziness or other disorders of the central nervous system, including visual impairment during the use of Voltaren, should not drive a car or operate machinery during the period of use of the drug.
The typical clinical picture, peculiar to an overdose of Voltaren, does not exist.
Supporting and symptomatic treatment is indicated for such complications as lowering blood pressure, renal failure, convulsions, gastrointestinal disturbances and respiratory depression.It is unlikely that forced diuresis, hemodialysis or hemoperfusion will be useful for removing NSAIDs, because The active substances of these drugs are largely associated with plasma proteins and are extensively metabolized.
In the event of an overdose while taking the drug inside, in order to quickly prevent the absorption of diclofenac, it is necessary to wash the stomach and appoint activated charcoal.
Voltaren® may increase the concentration of lithium and Digoxin in plasma with simultaneous use with these drugs.
Voltaren®, like other NSAIDs, may reduce the effect of diuretics. The simultaneous use of Voltaren with potassium-sparing diuretics can lead to an increase in the level of potassium in the blood (in the case of this combination of drugs, this indicator should be often monitored).
Simultaneous use of Voltaren with other NSAIDs may increase the risk of side effects.
Although clinical studies have not established the effect of Voltaren on the effect of anticoagulants, there are some reports of an increased risk of bleeding in cases of their joint use. Careful observation of patients receiving these drugs at the same time is recommended.
Voltaren® can be prescribed together with oral hypoglycemic drugs and at the same time the effectiveness of the latter does not change.However, there are individual reports of the development in such cases of both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, which necessitated a change in the dose of hypoglycemic drugs during the use of Voltaren.
Caution should be exercised when using NSAIDs less than 24 hours before the start of application or after the end of therapy with Methotrexate , because its concentration in the blood (and therefore toxicity) may increase.
The effect of NSAIDs on kidney prostaglandin activity may increase cyclosporine nephrotoxicity.
There are isolated reports of seizures in patients who took both NSAIDs and quinolone antibacterial drugs.
Do not mix Voltaren solution in ampoules with solutions of other drugs for injection.
