Frequently asked questions about indomethacin

What is indomethacin?

Indomethacin is a prescription medication used to treat arthritis.

It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug - also known as an NSAID - that is used to relieve the pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness caused by multiple forms of arthritis. It is also used to treat similar symptoms caused by gout - a specific type of arthritis that causes joint pain and inflammation.

What is indomethacin used to treat?

Indomethacin is used to treat the symptoms of osteoarthritis (arthritis that is caused by a breakdown of the lining of the joints), rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis caused by swelling of the lining of joints), juvenile arthritis (arthritis in young people), and ankylosing spondylitis (arthritis that mainly affects the spine). It may also be prescribed as a treatment for similar symptoms caused by gout.

Arthritis is a common condition caused by inflammation and swelling in your joints. More prevalent in older individuals, arthritis affects more than 54 million Americans.

Gout is a type of arthritis caused by uric acid crystals building up in the joints. Gout attacks can be extremely painful and often come on without warning. Like other forms of arthritis, gout can affect nearly any joint in the body but is most commonly felt in the big toe before the condition spreads to other areas.

How does indomethacin work?

Indomethacin belongs to a family of drugs known as NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). In short, indomethacin targets COX-2, an enzyme in your body that is responsible for causing swelling, inflammation, and discomfort in the joints. By preventing this enzyme from triggering inflammation, indomethacin can help reduce and alleviate symptoms of arthritis.

What are the most common side effects of indomethacin?

Indomethacin has been shown to cause some side effects. If these reactions do not go away within a few days or become severe, talk to your health care provider.


Common symptoms caused by taking indomethacin include:
- Headache
- Dizziness
- Vomiting
- Diarrhea
- Constipation
- Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)


If these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days, talk to your health care provider. If you experience difficulty breathing, hives, skin rash, change in skin color, flu-like symptoms, nausea, discolored or bloody urine, or unusual bleeding/ bruising while taking indomethacin, seek medical attention immediately.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with, as well as any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before starting treatment with indomethacin. Indomethacin can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant.

What is the typical starting dose of indomethacin?

The typical starting dose of indomethacin will vary depending on the needs of the patient. Indomethacin is commonly prescribed as an oral tablet. The starting dosage of this medication is usually between 25-50 mg per day, to be divided into 2 or 3 doses. For acute bursitis or tendonitis, this preliminary dose starts around 75-150 mg per day, to be divided into 3 or 4 doses.

Throughout the first few weeks of treatment, your doctor will monitor your progress and track how you respond to the medication. In some instances, this starting dose may be reduced. In others, your doctor may choose to increase your daily dosage. If you experience any side effects or adverse reactions, report them as soon as possible. Your doctor may change your dosage depending on how you react to the medication.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of indomethacin without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
