Indomethacin is a nonsteroidal anti inflammatory (NSAID). It works by blocking your body’s production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation.
Indomethacin can help to relieve pain, swelling and joint stiffness caused by arthritis, gout, bursitis and tendonitis. It can also be used to relieve pain from many other conditions but it should be used following the doctor’s directions. The most common side effects are headache, dizziness, dyspepsia, hyponatremia and nausea.
