When receiving prolonged action tablets absorption is not as fast and only a little more than 80%, the maximum effect is achieved after four hours, the total duration is 24 hours.
During this time ingested voltaren blocks the action of the cyclooxygenase enzyme, which is involved in the synthesis of prostaglandins - substances that promote inflammation.
Prostaglandins operate in humans and other functions, e.g., protecting the stomach lining from damage and contribute to the onset of labor. Inhibition of prostaglandin activity gives rise to side effects of Voltaren.
