Etodolac (Lodine) - Overview
Etodolac, marketed under the brand name Lodine, is a medication used for managing pain and inflammation in people with rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. People having difficulty getting an etodolac prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe Lodine when appropriate to do so.
What Is Etodolac Used For?
Etodolac (Lodine) is indicated for osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis patients who need help with managing pain and inflammation symptoms. Etodolac belongs to a specific group of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) known as pyranocarboxylic acids. Similar to other NSAIDs such as ibuprofen, meloxicam, and naproxen, etodolac exerts analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory activities in the body. Etodolac's mechanism of action is thought to be related to prostaglandin synthesis via prostaglandin synthetase but what it exactly does is not fully understood.
Etodolac - Dosage and Cost
Etodolac is well absorbed after oral administration and does not undergo much first-pass metabolism. Peak plasma levels of etodolac are typically reached within 110 minutes and is impacted by concomitant food intake. In the plasma, etodolac is mostly bound to proteins and the drug is primarily metabolized in the liver. As Lodine, the starting dose is generally Lodine 200 mg and is titrated based on patient needs and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. Lodine is available as etodolac 200 mg capsules and etodolac 300 mg capsules as well as etodolac 400 mg tablets and etodolac 500 mg tablets. Etodolac is moderately affordable, costing approximately 50 cents per etodolac 400 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Etodolac may be covered by some insurance plans and Lodine coupons may be available online. Etodolac itself is a crystal that does not dissolve in water and is white.
Can I Buy Etodolac Online?
Etodolac is a prescription medication and one cannot just buy Lodine online in the United States as a result. Additionally, because of the prescription requirement, etodolac OTC is not available from US pharmacies. People who need an etodolac prescription (e.g. etodolac 400 mg or etodolac 500 mg tablets) can use Push Health to request help from a medical provider in the area who can prescribe Lodine medication when appropriate to do so.
Etodolac - Side Effects
Etodolac (Lodine) can cause side effects and concerns and risks should be discussed with one's medical provider and pharmacist before use. Side effects that can result from etodolac use include dizziness, headache, anemia, fatigue, heartburn, vomiting, nausea, and abnormal kidney function. Like other NSAIDs, etodolac can increase the risk of serious cardiovascular thrombotic events such as myocardial infarction and stroke as well as gastrointestinal events such as ulceration, bleeding and perforation of the intestines and stomach. Alcohol and etodolac should not be used together. People with an allergy or hypersensitivity to etodolac, Lodine, aspirin or other NSAID medications should not use this medication. Lodine should not be used by people who have had coronary artery bypass graft surgery and are having peri-operative pain.
