Hi everyone, Happy Holidays! You may heard by now that the US FDA is issuing warnings about liver toxicity resulting from the use of Voltaren Gel. (If you have not please check this link http://www.drugs.com/pro/voltaren-gel.html). I have lots of arthritis & would love to use a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug in the form of a gel, cream, or patch (my stomach can't stand the oral NSAIDs). What other creams/patches/gels are available? Is ketoprofen (sp?) the only other gel option? How are you replacing the Voltaren Gel? Or are you sticking with Voltaren? Thanks, Neil
