Indomethacin - Uses and Overview

Indomethacin, marketed under the name Indocin, is an non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used in managing specific types of arthritis and other inflammatory diseases. Push Health can help connect people who might need an indomethacin prescription with a medical provider who can prescribe medication when appropriate.

What Is Indomethacin Used For?

Indomethacin (Indocin) is an NSAID medication that has both analgesic and antipyretic properties. Indomethacin is primarily used as part of a long-term treatment plan in people with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. Indomethacin prevents the synthesis of prostaglandin, a compound involved in the inflammatory response in the body and one which is thought to make the nerves more sensitive. Through this mechanism of action, indomethacin is thought to suppress inflammation and potentially reduce joint swelling and morning stiffness and increase mobility. Indomethacin for gout management is sometimes used along with allopurinol and colchicine.

Indomethacin (Indocin) - Dosage and Cost

Indomethacin itself is mostly insoluble in water. Following an oral dose of indomethacin 25 mg capsules or indomethacin 50 mg capsules, the medication reaches peak plasma concentrations at roughly 2 hours and is almost all bioavailable. Indomethacin is highly bound to proteins in the plasma and can cross the placenta as well as the blood-brain barrier. The half-life of indomethacin is approximately 4.5 hours and indomethacin is excreted through the bile and the urine. Indomethacin 25 mg capsules and indomethacin 50 mg capsules are quite affordable at under forty cents per capsule at most pharmacies. Additionally, pharmacy insurance plans might cover the cost of the medication, depending on the plan. Indomethacin coupons may be available online to help reduce medication costs.

Can I Buy Indomethacin Online?

Indomethacin requires a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy in the US. As such, one cannot simply buy indomethacin online (legally) before consulting with a licensed medical provider and getting a prescription. Push Health, however, can connect people who might need an indomethacin prescription with licensed providers who can prescribe the medication if they deem it appropriate to do so.

Indomethacin - Side Effects

Indomethacin, like other NSAID medications, can cause different side effects. Indomethacin's side effects include stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, chest pain, shortness of breath, and rash. People with a known hypersensitivity or allergic reaction to Indocin should avoid using the medication. People who have had a coronary artery bypass graft surgery should not use indomethacin. Questions about side effects that might occur when using indomethacin should be directed to one's pharmacist and medical provider prior to use.
