    Voltaren for Tonsillectomy

    After the almond op, Voltaren was prescribed to me and I reacted more than violently. Extreme pain in the mouth (as if I had swallowed coal) after 4 days dizziness and severe skin irritation and finally anaphylactic shock after 5 days. Heidewitzka … I would never take it again and again, above all the doctors said that the pain would be from the operation and in the end this medicine (if I had not thanked him for bleeding in the hospital) would almost have cost me my life .. ,

    Side effects: Dizziness

    Voltaren for Tonsillectomy

    The palatine tonsils were removed at the tender age of 34 years. I had terrible fear in the run-up, especially in front of the pain. That was totally covered. When I awoke from the anesthesia, I did not notice anything, since I was still well pumped from the operation. And then I got regular Voltaren dispersions. The pills have really helped wonderfully and relatively quickly. Already on the 3rd day after the operation I could eat a bread roll. No problem at all from the pain. Only the swelling made it a bit difficult, and the fact that fluids came out through the nose. But with enough peace of mind, you can quickly develop a suitable strategy. Personally, I tolerated Voltaren very well – even without a stomach protector had no problems. If I still had pain, I would only have had to turn to the nursing staff. I was told that nobody has to be in pain and that you can get something stronger if the original one does not work.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Voltaren for Tendonitis

    on the second day stomach cramps and diarrhea and even the night was disturbed by cramps. Side effects also persisted two days after discontinuation of the tablets. The only thing that can be said with a certain irony is that the side effects overshadowed the actual pain to be treated and thus, in a sense, the sense of the painkiller was fulfilled.

    Side effects: Stomach cramps; Diarrhea

Good results of pain reduction by medically applied osteopathy. Unfortunately, this is not a cash balance, otherwise the pharmaceutical industry would not make big profits.
