Pharmacy/transdermal drugs


    Can other medications be added to either EMLA creme or Voltaren gel and also be absorbed trandermally? Also do either drug actually enter the bloodstream?

Hi Rick,
I would think that as long as the other medications are compatible with Voltaren gel or EMLA they can be added and be absorbed.
One needs to establish that there is not a physical interaction and that the base is compatible with whatever you are adding.
Thank you for using Allexperts.
