    From what I read on the net Ibugel is available in two strengths. 5% and 10%. The 5% strength can be bought over the counter or prescribed on NHS prescription whereas the stronger preparation can only be supplied on prescription.

    You can certainly buy Ibuprofen gel over the counter. Also Voltarol 12hour gel, whic his a different drug (Diclofenac) - I've found it really useful

    I take anti inflammatorys so for me I use "pernaton" and find it good.......hasn't got the ibroprufen or Diclofenic drug in it so I'm not overdosing. :wink:
    Personally I find {if not taking naproxen or another one} Diclofenic is the best for me
    That is just my experience........not a medical one :wink:
