1. Hi,
    I get a sore hip now and again and when it's bad I take voltarol for it but you're supposed to take it with food. I took one yesterday after a tetra and one after my 810 meal but I felt sick and sore tummy all day. I feel fine today so I'm sure it was the voltarol that caused it. Will the nausea settle down or shouldn't I be taking it at all? I was thinking maybe today have one with my cd bar and one with my 810meal. Should that be ok?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    hiya T,
    sorry to hear ur in pain.
    It really depends on how sensitive ur tummy is.
    I have to take Tramadol which is a pain relief drug that needs to be taken with or after food.
    for a few days i did feel sickly and it did settle.
    i have it about 40 minutes after having my bar and again after my jelly+tetra mousse trifle.
    However, ive taken voltarol before CD (although i can no longer take it due to liver problems) and i was always fine But my mother used them after a knee replacement and they constantly made her sick (even after a large meal).
    i would stick with them for a few days and if the nausea continues perhaps ask for a different painkiller which is a little easier on the tummy.
    gl with it and hope the pain eases soon.

    Definitely seek your doc's advice on this one. I have taken voltoral for bad back, but any anti-inflammatory drugs can upset the tum (such as ibroprufen). So if you are having a bad reaction, tell your doc, or at least a pharmacist.

    I take it.

    I make sure I take it just after a bar or milkshake. I'm not sure if this is the right thing to do but it works for me and doesnt make me feel sick at all. I risked it because of my jaw sometimes it kills so bad so I took 1 instead of 2, and I was OK but I would seek advice if you are really worried

    I take an anti sickness tablet to counterbalance. Domperidone or Maxalon!
     
  7. Oh that's interesting. Do I need to see the doc to get that or is it available over the counter?

    Thanks.
