Voltaren Injection general information

What are Voltaren Ampoules used for?

Voltaren Ampoules 75mg/3ml are used to treat renal colic (kidney stones) and biliary colic (gall stones), to help reduce the severe pain caused by these conditions.  Colic is a term given to acute pain that comes and goes in waves; it can come on rapidly and then eases over a period of time and goes.  Colic is caused by waves of muscular contraction of the smooth muscle found in hollow organs of the body such as the intestines, gall bladder and urinary tract including the kidneys and ureter (tube carrying urine from the kidneys to the bladder). 

Renal colic is caused by kidney stones, which form when a component of urine comes out of solution, such as calcium salts (oxalate or phosphate) if there is too much calcium in the blood.  Uric acid kidney stones form if the urine becomes too concentrated due to insufficient fluid intake or excess loss of fluid, or due to high protein diet.  Symptoms include severe pain radiating down from the lower back area, nausea and vomiting, urinary infections, and blood in the urine.

Biliary colic is caused by gall stones, which are crystals or stone like deposits, that form in the gallbladder from bile, a digestive fluid that is made in the liver and stored in the gallbladder.  Bile is important for digestion particularly of fats and fat-soluble enzymes.  Gall stones can form for several reasons, including too much cholesterol in the diet, excess bilirubin, a breakdown product of red blood cells that is disposed of in bile, failure of the gallbladder to empty when full causing concentration of bile.  Symptoms include indigestion, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes due to build-up of bilirubin), nausea and vomiting, and abdominal pain.

Voltaren Ampoules 75mg are also used to reduce pain due to severe migraine attack when other forms of Voltaren are not suitable, for example when swallowing is difficult due to nausea.  Voltaren Ampoules can help relieve symptoms of migraine attack including headache, nausea and sensitivity to light, but cannot be used to prevent migraine attack.

Voltaren Ampoules 75mg are also used for acute pain caused by inflammatory and degenerative rheumatic diseases such as exacerbations of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, and acute back pain.  Also, for inflammation caused by trauma and following surgery to reduce pain, swelling and oedema (fluid collection) around the wound.  

How do Voltaren Ampoules work?

Voltaren Ampoules 75mg/3ml contain diclofenac in solution, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that has antirheumatic, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic (fever reducing) properties.  Diclofenac in Voltaren Ampoules works by inhibiting the action of the enzyme cyclooxygenase (COX), which is an essential enzyme in the pathway for prostaglandins (PG) synthesis.  Cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) is induced during the inflammation process and is responsible for the synthesis of inflammatory prostaglandins like PGE2, which causes pain, swelling and other symptoms of inflammation.  Cyclooxygenase 1 (COX-1) is needed for normal cellular processes, particularly protection of the gut by regulation of acid content.  If COX-1 is inhibited this can result in the gastrointestinal side effects caused by some non-specific NSAIDs.  Diclofenac in Voltaren Ampoules inhibits COX-2 with greater potency that COX-1 which reduces gastrointestinal side effects, while being effective in blocking the production of inflammatory prostaglandins to relieve the symptoms of inflammation, including pain, swelling.  Diclofenac in Voltaren Ampoules 75mg/3ml is rapidly absorbed into the circulation by injection and is effective within 20 minutes of the injection to reduce moderate to severe pain.  The bioavailability of diclofenac following injection is greater that other routes including oral and suppositories, as this avoids first pass metabolism in the liver, which can reduce the amount of active diclofenac available to reduce pain and inflammation.  at the required site of action.
