Indomethacin is in a group of NSAIDS that are used for reducing body inflammations and pain. Some of the conditions that cause such inflammations and pain in the body include: gout, arthritis, ankylosing, bursitis and spondylitis. Indomethacin cannot be used by people who have just gone through a heart bypass surgery because it can increase the risk of stroke.
Indomethacin is a drug that is used for treating moderate to severe osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gouty arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.
Indomethacin belongs to a class of drugs that is known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agents. Indomethacin works by reducing the hormones that usually cause inflammation hence decreasing the pain and the swelling.
Other than the above-listed conditions, Indomethacin may also be used for relieving pain from various other conditions. However, you should have the doctor’s prescription of Indomethacin before taking it. Self-prescription is not recommended. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed dose and always contact a doctor if you detect any signs and symptoms of an overdose.
