Warnings and precautions
Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before using Traulen.
If the product is used on extended skin areas and over a longer period, the possibility of systemic side effects (i.e. effects that may affect different parts of the body) cannot be ruled out (see section 4 “Possible Side Effects”).
Discontinue the treatment immediately and consult your doctor if you experience a rash after applying the gel.
Children and adolescents
There are insufficient data on efficacy and safety available for children and adolescents below 14 years of age. Therefore, do not use Traulen in children below 14 years of age.
Other medicines and Traulen
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines.
Since systemic absorption of diclofenac following a topical application is very low, interactions with other medicines are very unlikely.
