Gout Medication Indomethacin

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:

Medical Disclaimer: The pupose of GoutPal is to provide jargon-free explanations of medical gout-related terms and procedures. Because gout sufferers need to know what questions to ask their doctor. Also, you need to understand what your doctor tells you. So this website explains gout science. But it is definitely NOT a substitute for medical advice.

Information on this website is provided by a fellow gout sufferer (Keith Taylor) with an accountant's precision for accurate data. But no medical qualifications. So you must seek professional medical advice about gout and any other health matters.
