Two things, one in general and one specific.
NSAIDs as a class are tough on the kidneys. If you use them when you ride, make every effort to stay hydrated and have your PCP check your kidney function from time to time.
I used to use Voltaren and never had any problem with it. However, there have been some scary reports of liver failure caused by the stuff. Admittedly, it's probably an extremely small fraction of the people who use the stuff, but it was enough to scare me away. So now I use ibuprofen.
