Had back pain, given tramadol injection, voltaren pessary. Also given tramadol tablet, diclofenac. Remaining dose of pessary?

Hi I went to ER yesterdayand was given an injection of tramadol and a voltaren pessary for excutiating back pain. The gave me a script for tramadol 50 mg and diclofenac 75mg.

I still have one pessary of voltaren, but I'm guessing I should not be using that as it's the same drug (50mg diclofenac), or should I use the pessary at bedtime?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pessary of voltaren need not be used since you have now got a prescription for tramadol tablet and diclofenac. If the pain relief is not adequate then consider taking a muscle relaxant.
