What side effects can Indocin have? Does Indocin give sores on the back of the throat?
Asked by Russ Darensbourg 2 years ago.

Indocin does not cause sore at the back of the throat. This may be a strep throat caused by the streptococcus virus. You may have a streped throat. Answered by Shalon Carnett 2 years ago.


Whats the difference between Indocin and naproxen(alleve)?
i have pneumonia and no health insurance. I got the antibiotic that was prescribed but i dont want to spend on the indocin if alleve will work as well for me. Asked by Sonia Mccrumb 2 years ago.

I'm not a doctor or pharmacist, but I do know that prescription Indocin is like a "super aspirin." If you are taking an antibiotic, that's the most important thing. The Aleve is an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory. I guess the doctor was trying to relieve your pain--aching, fever? You don't want to over-do Indocin or aleve because they can mess up your stomach and liver. However, I take two aleve every night before bed for arthritis and I'm fine. You might want to go to WebMD and compare the difference in the two. But if all you need is an anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, the Aleve would probably work just as well--maybe not as quickly. It is cheaper, of course. Get well! Answered by Reita Leck 2 years ago.


Can I take indocin and colchicine together?
Asked by Violeta Siefkes 2 years ago.

Yes they are not related. Indocin is an NSAID - -which is a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. These work on prostaglandins to mediate pain/inflammation. Similar medications are Ibuprofen, Meloxicab, etc. Colchicine is a toxin. It causes cellular dysfunction. Though secondarily it will inhibit neutrophil motility and thus cause a reduced immune response and hence lowered inflammation. (It's effect in gout, etc). Neutrophil is just a white blood cell. You are fine taking them together. I would watch your intake of Colchicine though due to the toxicity. Answered by Carmen Widman 2 years ago.

Hi Sushmita, It's not only the human beings , but a variety of beings that come together and yet keep there individuality. I answered a question "Why are we here?" on Yahoo Answers, a few days ago. The same could be a proper begining for answering yours. Have you ever imagined a view and then tried to draw it on a paper / canvas? There are times in the process when you inspect the half drawn picture for it's closeness to your imagined view......then you make a correction or two and proceed..........this goes on..........If you think what you have drawn is beyond correction then what you do?.......Tear off the page and start afresh? This is what life is all about. Imagine if you had no senses and wanted to know what you are like....you could only think and visualize what you could be, and if it turns out to be not acceptable you will simply stop and start on some new thought with corrections in the earlier one. We are the Soul's idea's about itself, turned in to physical reality and are constantly giving it the feedback to decide if we are moving true to his ideas. When we weaver away....well that's the end of the episode! Well, what remains with the true self that is one and the only for all beings, as all beings are nothing but the devices to execute the ideas of the self, is the collective experience. This experience influences the new ideas and the new creatures come in to being. Each individual is a seperate idea generated from the same knowledge base. As such while there are fundamental similarities, so are the distint individualities. Hope this helps! Answered by Rae Barley 2 years ago.

Is it ok to take 25MG of INDOCIN and 500 MG of VICODIN at the same time?
I was just diagnosed with acute gout (1/08) and had carpal tunnel surgery (12/07) Asked by Laurie Chrystal 2 years ago.

After reading about the possible side affects and risks of taking indocin, I wouldn't take it by itself, let alone with anything else. But if you must, there should be no interactions other than they both cause constipation, so you may have a problem on the porcelain throne. It's always best to ask a pharmacist or Dr. to be sure, and most cities offer a free help line at their local hospitals, so I would definately ask a professional. Answered by Sheila Haugrud 2 years ago.

Indocin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (also called NSAIDs) that are used to relieve some symptoms caused by arthritis (rheumatism), such as inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain. However, this medicine does not cure arthritis and will help you only as long as you continue to take it. Your Vicodin is for pain. You should be ok to take them together, but 1 of the side effects is constipation. You may want to try to take 1 in the morning and the other in the evening or somehow try to break them up. Answered by Ardelle Cheu 2 years ago.

There should be noo interaction problem with these two medications. You should always check with a pharmacist at the pharmacy that filled it, then you will have no doubts! Answered by Maritza Asay 2 years ago.

I have gout, can I take colchicine with indocin together at the same time?
Can I take colchicine with indocin together without any bad drug interactions? Asked by Bao Trick 2 years ago.

Yes but you should follow the dosage schedule your doctor out lined for you. They both independently can cause toxicity but other than irritating your stomach for the short term flareup are usually pretty safe. However if you take them as long term preventive or maintenance your doctor would monitor your blood. I hope this helps. PS... they usually are less irritating to the stomach if taken after a small snack. Answered by Tamika Polhill 2 years ago.

Has anyone ever taken Indocin? And had any side effects??
I should add that I have already called my dr on this, I am just awaiting the response. Asked by Krystina Alarie 2 years ago.

I was prescribed Indocin last week for suspected gout in my big toe. I started taking it last wednesday and Thursday night I started have bad stomach aches and lower back pain. I thought it may have to do with the Indocin, but wasnt entirely sure since everyone I work with has been sick with a stomach virus....My thing was I didnt feel bad, just bad stomach aches and stuff that goes along with stomach cramping. It was so severe saturday night that I stopped taking Indocin and my stomach is feeling better and now today, my lower back has no pain....also, the canker soars in my mouth went away. Anyone else have stomach issues while on Indocin...or is it just coincidence I was on it with stomach virus?? Answered by Casey Rover 2 years ago.

[edit] Adverse effects Since indometacin inhibits both COX-1 and COX-2, it inhibits the production of prostaglandins in the stomach and intestines which maintain the mucous lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Indometacin, therefore, like other nonselective COX inhibitors, can cause peptic ulcers. The ulcers can result in serious bleeding and/or perforation requiring hospitalization of the patient. Some even die from these complications. To reduce the possibility of peptic ulcers, indometacin should be prescribed at the lowest dosage needed to achieve a therapeutic effect, usually between 50–200 mg/day. It should always be taken with food. Nearly all patients benefit from an ulcer protective drug (e.g. highly dosed antacids, ranitidine 150mg at bedtime, or omeprazole 20mg at bedtime). Other common gastrointestinal complaints, including dyspepsia, heartburn and mild diarrhea are less serious and rarely require discontinuation of indometacin. Many NSAIDs, but particularly indometacin, cause lithium retention by reducing its excretion by the kidneys. Thus indometacin users have an elevated risk of lithium toxicity. For patients taking lithium supplements (e.g. for treatment of depression or bipolar disorder), less toxic NSAIDs such as sulindac or aspirin, are preferred. Indometacin also reduces plasma renin activity and aldosterone levels, and increases sodium and potassium retention. It also enhances the effects of vasopressin. Together these may lead to: edema (swelling due to fluid retention) hyperkalemia (high potassium levels) hypernatremia (high sodium levels) hypertension (high blood pressure) The drug may also cause elevations of serum creatinine and more serious renal damage such as acute renal failure, chronic nephritis and nephrotic syndrome. These conditions also often begin with edema and hyperkalema. Additionally, indometacin quite often causes headache (10 to 20%), sometimes with vertigo and dizziness, hearing loss, tinnitus, blurred vision (with or without retinal damage) and worsens Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and psychiatric disorders. Cases of life-threatening shock (including angioedema, sweating, severe hypotension and tachycardia as well as acute bronchospasm), severe or lethal hepatitis and severe bone marrow damage have all been reported. Skin reactions and photosensitivity are also possible side effects. Due to its strong antipyretic activity indometacin may obscure the clinical course of serious infections. The frequency and severity of side effects and the availability of better tolerated alternatives make indometacin today a drug of second choice. Its use in acute gout attacks and in dysmenorrhea is well-established because in these indications the duration of treatment is limited to a few days only, therefore serious side effects are not likely to occur.

If you have a history of mental illnesses, then it is most likely schizophrenia. I would suggest going back to your psychiatrist and talk to them about it. Answered by Clara Kinzig 2 years ago.

i have pneumonia and no health insurance. I got the antibiotic that was prescribed but i dont want to spend on the indocin if alleve will work as well for me. Asked by Virgil Escudero 2 years ago.

I'm not a doctor or pharmacist, but I do know that prescription Indocin is like a "super aspirin." If you are taking an antibiotic, that's the most important thing. The Aleve is an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory. I guess the doctor was trying to relieve your pain--aching, fever? You don't want to over-do Indocin or aleve because they can mess up your stomach and liver. However, I take two aleve every night before bed for arthritis and I'm fine. You might want to go to WebMD and compare the difference in the two. But if all you need is an anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, the Aleve would probably work just as well--maybe not as quickly. It is cheaper, of course. Get well! Answered by Malcom Remak 2 years ago.


Can I take indocin and colchicine together?
Asked by Miles Boissonneault 2 years ago.

Yes they are not related. Indocin is an NSAID - -which is a non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. These work on prostaglandins to mediate pain/inflammation. Similar medications are Ibuprofen, Meloxicab, etc. Colchicine is a toxin. It causes cellular dysfunction. Though secondarily it will inhibit neutrophil motility and thus cause a reduced immune response and hence lowered inflammation. (It's effect in gout, etc). Neutrophil is just a white blood cell. You are fine taking them together. I would watch your intake of Colchicine though due to the toxicity. Answered by Neida Heeth 2 years ago.

Hi Sushmita, It's not only the human beings , but a variety of beings that come together and yet keep there individuality. I answered a question "Why are we here?" on Yahoo Answers, a few days ago. The same could be a proper begining for answering yours. Have you ever imagined a view and then tried to draw it on a paper / canvas? There are times in the process when you inspect the half drawn picture for it's closeness to your imagined view......then you make a correction or two and proceed..........this goes on..........If you think what you have drawn is beyond correction then what you do?.......Tear off the page and start afresh? This is what life is all about. Imagine if you had no senses and wanted to know what you are like....you could only think and visualize what you could be, and if it turns out to be not acceptable you will simply stop and start on some new thought with corrections in the earlier one. We are the Soul's idea's about itself, turned in to physical reality and are constantly giving it the feedback to decide if we are moving true to his ideas. When we weaver away....well that's the end of the episode! Well, what remains with the true self that is one and the only for all beings, as all beings are nothing but the devices to execute the ideas of the self, is the collective experience. This experience influences the new ideas and the new creatures come in to being. Each individual is a seperate idea generated from the same knowledge base.

Is it ok to take 25MG of INDOCIN and 500 MG of VICODIN at the same time?
I was just diagnosed with acute gout (1/08) and had carpal tunnel surgery (12/07) Asked by Tracie Angelle 2 years ago.

After reading about the possible side affects and risks of taking indocin, I wouldn't take it by itself, let alone with anything else. But if you must, there should be no interactions other than they both cause constipation, so you may have a problem on the porcelain throne. It's always best to ask a pharmacist or Dr. to be sure, and most cities offer a free help line at their local hospitals, so I would definately ask a professional. Answered by Charlott Raffone 2 years ago.

Indocin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (also called NSAIDs) that are used to relieve some symptoms caused by arthritis (rheumatism), such as inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and joint pain. However, this medicine does not cure arthritis and will help you only as long as you continue to take it. Your Vicodin is for pain. You should be ok to take them together, but 1 of the side effects is constipation. You may want to try to take 1 in the morning and the other in the evening or somehow try to break them up.

Can I take colchicine with indocin together without any bad drug interactions? Asked by Tamela Beckes 2 years ago.

Yes but you should follow the dosage schedule your doctor out lined for you. They both independently can cause toxicity but other than irritating your stomach for the short term flareup are usually pretty safe. However if you take them as long term preventive or maintenance your doctor would monitor your blood. I hope this helps.

Has anyone ever taken Indocin? And had any side effects??
I should add that I have already called my dr on this, I am just awaiting the response. Asked by Thad Nemecek 2 years ago.

I was prescribed Indocin last week for suspected gout in my big toe. I started taking it last wednesday and Thursday night I started have bad stomach aches and lower back pain. I thought it may have to do with the Indocin, but wasnt entirely sure since everyone I work with has been sick with a stomach virus....My thing was I didnt feel bad, just bad stomach aches and stuff that goes along with stomach cramping. It was so severe saturday night that I stopped taking Indocin and my stomach is feeling better and now today, my lower back has no pain....also, the canker soars in my mouth went away. Anyone else have stomach issues while on Indocin...or is it just coincidence I was on it with stomach virus?? Answered by Jacquie Delany 2 years ago.

[edit] Adverse effects Since indometacin inhibits both COX-1 and COX-2, it inhibits the production of prostaglandins in the stomach and intestines which maintain the mucous lining of the gastrointestinal tract. Indometacin, therefore, like other nonselective COX inhibitors, can cause peptic ulcers. The ulcers can result in serious bleeding and/or perforation requiring hospitalization of the patient. Some even die from these complications. To reduce the possibility of peptic ulcers, indometacin should be prescribed at the lowest dosage needed to achieve a therapeutic effect, usually between 50–200 mg/day. It should always be taken with food. Nearly all patients benefit from an ulcer protective drug (e.g. highly dosed antacids, ranitidine 150mg at bedtime, or omeprazole 20mg at bedtime). Other common gastrointestinal complaints, including dyspepsia, heartburn and mild diarrhea are less serious and rarely require discontinuation of indometacin. Many NSAIDs, but particularly indometacin, cause lithium retention by reducing its excretion by the kidneys. Thus indometacin users have an elevated risk of lithium toxicity. For patients taking lithium supplements (e.g. for treatment of depression or bipolar disorder), less toxic NSAIDs such as sulindac or aspirin, are preferred. Indometacin also reduces plasma renin activity and aldosterone levels, and increases sodium and potassium retention. It also enhances the effects of vasopressin. Together these may lead to: edema (swelling due to fluid retention) hyperkalemia (high potassium levels) hypernatremia (high sodium levels) hypertension (high blood pressure) The drug may also cause elevations of serum creatinine and more serious renal damage such as acute renal failure, chronic nephritis and nephrotic syndrome. These conditions also often begin with edema and hyperkalema. Additionally, indometacin quite often causes headache (10 to 20%), sometimes with vertigo and dizziness, hearing loss, tinnitus, blurred vision (with or without retinal damage) and worsens Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and psychiatric disorders. Cases of life-threatening shock (including angioedema, sweating, severe hypotension and tachycardia as well as acute bronchospasm), severe or lethal hepatitis and severe bone marrow damage have all been reported. Skin reactions and photosensitivity are also possible side effects. Due to its strong antipyretic activity indometacin may obscure the clinical course of serious infections. The frequency and severity of side effects and the availability of better tolerated alternatives make indometacin today a drug of second choice. Its use in acute gout attacks and in dysmenorrhea is well-established because in these indications the duration of treatment is limited to a few days only, therefore serious side effects are not likely to occur.
