Indocin For Gout Guidelines

Indocin For Gout Guidelines

Prescribing information for Indocin®, a brand name for indomethacin.

The indomethacin dosage for gout is given as

Capsules INDOCIN 50 mg t.i.d. until pain is tolerable. The dose should then be rapidly reduced to
complete cessation of the drug. Definite relief of pain has been reported within 2 to 4 hours.
Tenderness and heat usually subside in 24 to 36 hours, and swelling gradually disappears in 3 to 5
days.

The abbreviation, t.i.d., means three times per day.

Indocin® Spellings

Like many medicines, Indocin® is often misspelled. Though spelling is often overrated, it pays to take extra care with medicines, as a misunderstanding might cause treatment problems in the unlikely event of a similar sounding drug being taken mistakenly.

In the list below, I have included other brand names in addition to Indocin®. When buying medicine, it is usually best to use the generic name rather than a brand name, unless additional active ingredients make the gout medicine more useful to you.
