Advice & Tips: This is a temporary stop-gap treatment. I usually use Voltaren Gel, but the manufacturer is back ordered until June. The Pennsaid does not really help much even though the active ingredients are the same. My guess is that the gel is absorbed more slowly into the body than the Pennsaid lotion. In any case, when the Voltaren Gel becomes available again, I will return to using that.
