    Default Voltaren Gel

    Anybody using this on themselves or 'off-label' for horses stock up now.

    I just tried to get a scrip filled for ME - and it appears that there are some really severe supply issues.

    The pharmacist said that they really didn't know what the issue is - but had been told that it would not be available for some time, and that it was possible that it would be discontinued.

    Don't know if that is because of manufacturing issues or what.

    Isn't Voltaren Gel the same thing as Surpass for horses?

    I have been using Voltaren for about a year on my neck/back. Didn't know about any shortage. Will check with MD tomorrow at my follow-up appointment.

    Hope I will be able to get more. Or else, I may have to steal my mare's Surpass. Hmmmm...

    Yep, there is some sort of problem here in the US with supplies of Voltaren gel. We haven't been able to get any at my pharmacy for a week or two now, and I don't know when we'll be able to get any more.
