I use this pack shot to illustrate various indomethacin for gout pages.
Indomethacin (often called indometacin) is widely prescribed for gout pain relief. It belongs to a class of drugs called NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). As such, it helps to reduce the painful swelling that is often associated with gout.
Note that all NSAIDs carry longterm health risks. They should only be used to help you cope during the first few months of uric acid lowering treatment. You should concentrate on getting uric acid to safe levels. After a few months with uric acid well below the 5mg/dL maximum, you will no longer need indomethacin or other gout pain relief.
You can read complete information in the indomethacin guidelines:
- Indomethacin Overview

- Indomethacin (Indocin) Dosage For Gout
- Indomethacin Side Effects
