What is indomethacin for?
what is indomethaicin Asked by Nilda Dolbin 1 year ago.

Indocin (indomethacin) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, and swelling. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, molecules known to cause these symptoms. Indomethacin has also been used clinically to delay premature labor, reduce amniotic fluid in polyhydramnios, and to close patent ductus arteriosus. Indomethacin is a potent drug with many serious side effects and should not be considered an analgesic for minor aches and pains or fever. The drug is more potent than aspirin, but is not a better analgesic. In mild to moderate pain a standard oral dose of indomethacin proved as effective as 600 mg aspirin. Generally, overdose in humans causes drowsiness, dizziness, severe headache, mental confusion, paresthesia, numbness of limbs, nausea and vomiting. Severe gastrointestinal bleeding is also possible. Cerebral edema, and cardiac arrest with fatal outcome have been seen in children. Answered by Clarita Ferren 1 year ago.

It is a NSAID, a painkiller. It may upset your stomach. It is better not to take it with empty stomach. Answered by Jerry Santorella 1 year ago.


Advil = indomethacin?
can advil be substituted ? taking 50 mg indo every 6 hours for detox. headaches, prozac how much advil would be equal to what i am taking? Asked by Malissa Fontes 1 year ago.

Indocin (Indomethacin) is for gouty arthritis. It has extensive side effects. I would never recommend using it for any condition other than gout. Indomethacin is occassionally used for other arthritic conditions, but very infrequently because of its side effects. Advil is one of many brand names for ibuprofen; Motrin is another. The over-the-counter strength is 200mg per tablet. The max prescription dose of ibuprofen is 800mg every 6 hours, in a healthy individual with normal kidney function. Always take ibuprofen with food or a snack. Hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Rosalee Benanti 1 year ago.

Indomethacin and Ibuprofen are both drugs in a class called NSAIDS, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Before you substitute a prescribed NSAID for a non-prescription one, please call your Doctor. If he is not available, at least call the Pharmacist where the prescription was filled. The drugs are NOT all equal, and neither are their side effects. Answered by Carroll Clowerd 1 year ago.


I've been taking indomethacin for 1 week. Is gaining weight a side effect.?
if it does cause fluid retention will taking spironolact or something similar keep the fluid off Asked by Joann Lerno 1 year ago.

indomethacin is an NSAID drug, like a super asprin, and just like asprin it can cause water retention. It should NEVER be mixed with Dyazide or Maxide (other K sparing diuretics) as the combination causes the kidneys to shut down. The interaction was discovered by accident, and to my knowledge no intentional study has ever been done to screen for indomethacin interaction with other diuretics. So ARE YOUR KIDNEYS SHUTTING DOWN DUE TO AN INTERACTION? I have not checked the literature lately to see if anyone did a study, but as far as I know no one has. Indomethcin is much more complex than simple aspirin, and can supress the immune system. It does also have some mental effects. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic, that use to be restricted to just people with liver disease to counteract the build up of a natural hormone aldosterone that the liver normally inactivated. Aldosterone causes the kidneys to retain sodium at the expense of potassium. Anyway, Spironolactone promotes fatty tumors, and is thought by some to promote breast cancer, as most breast cancers start out as lipomas (fatty tumors). I am critical of review articles that promote spironolactone which overlook the fact that it promotes tumors, and think that other diuretics should be considered before this option. Answered by Shizuko Oehrle 1 year ago.

You would probably be better off just taking some kind of OTC diuretic rather than the spiro. Both spiro and indo can cause stomach problems such as ulcers and bleeding, so I would avoid the 2. Just get something OTC at the store and see if that helps. If not, ask your doc to prescribe something, if fluid retention is indeed what is causing the weight gain.

He was given Vicodin at one point after going to the ER due to the pain getting so bad! That worked but his new doctor wants him to try this! Has anybody ever tried this? Does it Work? How does it make you feel! Does it have bad side effects? They want $50.00 For this medacine and he has tried others and doesent want to pay this much if it is not going to work! He has also tried Toradol and Darvocet! Some worked a little but not enough manley at night is when it is really bad! Besides the Vicodin! That worked good! He dident even have to take it the often...."As he dosent like to take many meds" But he shouldent suffer either~ Any Input??? Thanks Answered by Elinor Petway 1 year ago.

Indomethacin is like supercharged ibuprofen--with same common side effect of gastric irritation. Drugs like this are usually the first choice for pain relief in carpal tunnel, but often don't work. If the Toradol didn't work then I'm sorry to say that the indomethacin probably won't either. I am surprised that someone prescribed him Vicodin earlier. Opioids usually aren't prescribed for carpal tunnel and are generally discouraged for treatment of neuropathic pain (carpal tunnel pain is caused by compression of a nerve). The traditional thinking is that opioids don't work for neuropathic pain, but there is mixed evidence out there. Pain is always a difficult thing to get objective data on. A steroid shot is also a possibility, but should only be done by the orthopedic surgeon (don't let a family practice doc do it). Generally one shot will probably help. Subsequent shots usually don't. The most effective nonsurgical treatment however is still the good old-fashioned splint. The wrist needs to be immobilized in neutral position and he needs to rest that hand as much as possible. Answered by Sharell Camilleri 1 year ago.

doctors are scared to prescribe vicodin because its addictive, indocin works great from some people.. if you really want vicodin, tell him that you uresearched the indocin and didnt realize it was an nsaid, tell him that he has GERD and cant take nsaids because it gives him terrible heartburn... I am actually in that position in reality, and it ends up that I get the strong stuff when i need it.. could just be i have a more sympathtic dr though.. indocin is good stuff though Answered by Vicenta Steidinger 1 year ago.

I have taken it and it didn't really work that well. I would not waste $50 on it, I would just take ibuprofen. Why all the exclamation points? No need to yell at us!!!! Answered by Marian Okuley 1 year ago.


Taking Antibiotic Indomethacin with Multi Vitamin ok?
I have been taking a antibiotic for about two weeks and have two weeks left. I want to take a multi vitamin if it is ok?! Any ideas! Asked by Georgeanna Farell 1 year ago.

Indomethacin is not an antibiotic, it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that is used to relieve moderate to severe pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness mainly for arthritis. Indomethacin is also sometimes used to relieve fever, pain, and inflammation caused by many types of conditions or injuries, to reduce the amount of calcium in the blood, and to treat a certain type of low blood pressure It should be taken with food immediately after meals at the same time every day, so yes, take your vitamin at the same time as it is digested with food better also...

For Patent ductus arteriosus, why is indomethacin mixed with vodka?
Asked by Carlene Lynum 1 year ago.

Because, Indomethacin is not soluble in water. Any other alcoholic concentrated beverage can work just as well... The ductus arteriosus remains patent during about 12 hours after an oral dose of 1.2 miligrams of indomethacin of kilogram of weight of the newborn.... So the dose is repeated until surgical intervention ) or catheter patch, or better, a bilibated silastic small baloon) is placed in the ductus arteriosus between the aorctic arch ant the main trunk of the pulmonary artery (the indomethacin just buys time, keeping the hole open) Answered by Saran Jiminian 1 year ago.

Indomethacin is like supercharged ibuprofen--with same common side effect of gastric irritation. Drugs like this are usually the first choice for pain relief in carpal tunnel, but often don't work. If the Toradol didn't work then I'm sorry to say that the indomethacin probably won't either. I am surprised that someone prescribed him Vicodin earlier. Opioids usually aren't prescribed for carpal tunnel and are generally discouraged for treatment of neuropathic pain (carpal tunnel pain is caused by compression of a nerve). The traditional thinking is that opioids don't work for neuropathic pain, but there is mixed evidence out there. Pain is always a difficult thing to get objective data on. A steroid shot is also a possibility, but should only be done by the orthopedic surgeon (don't let a family practice doc do it). Generally one shot will probably help. Subsequent shots usually don't.

Indomethacin is not an antibiotic, it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that is used to relieve moderate to severe pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness mainly for arthritis. Indomethacin is also sometimes used to relieve fever, pain, and inflammation caused by many types of conditions or injuries, to reduce the amount of calcium in the blood, and to treat a certain type of low blood pressure It should be taken with food immediately after meals at the same time every day, so yes, take your vitamin at the same time as it is digested with food better also...

What is indomethacin for?
what is indomethaicin Asked by Nigel Pulte 1 year ago.

Indocin (indomethacin) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, and swelling. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, molecules known to cause these symptoms. Indomethacin has also been used clinically to delay premature labor, reduce amniotic fluid in polyhydramnios, and to close patent ductus arteriosus. Indomethacin is a potent drug with many serious side effects and should not be considered an analgesic for minor aches and pains or fever. The drug is more potent than aspirin, but is not a better analgesic. In mild to moderate pain a standard oral dose of indomethacin proved as effective as 600 mg aspirin. Generally, overdose in humans causes drowsiness, dizziness, severe headache, mental confusion, paresthesia, numbness of limbs, nausea and vomiting. Severe gastrointestinal bleeding is also possible. Cerebral edema, and cardiac arrest with fatal outcome have been seen in children. Answered by Vannesa Borodec 1 year ago.

can advil be substituted ? taking 50 mg indo every 6 hours for detox. headaches, prozac how much advil would be equal to what i am taking? Asked by Ouida Campell 1 year ago.

Indocin (Indomethacin) is for gouty arthritis. It has extensive side effects. I would never recommend using it for any condition other than gout. Indomethacin is occassionally used for other arthritic conditions, but very infrequently because of its side effects. Advil is one of many brand names for ibuprofen; Motrin is another. The over-the-counter strength is 200mg per tablet. The max prescription dose of ibuprofen is 800mg every 6 hours, in a healthy individual with normal kidney function. Always take ibuprofen with food or a snack. Hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Sherley Crowson 1 year ago.

Indomethacin and Ibuprofen are both drugs in a class called NSAIDS, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Before you substitute a prescribed NSAID for a non-prescription one, please call your Doctor. If he is not available, at least call the Pharmacist where the prescription was filled. The drugs are NOT all equal, and neither are their side effects. Answered by Anjelica Loach 1 year ago.


I've been taking indomethacin for 1 week. Is gaining weight a side effect.?
if it does cause fluid retention will taking spironolact or something similar keep the fluid off Asked by Pandora Tape 1 year ago.

indomethacin is an NSAID drug, like a super asprin, and just like asprin it can cause water retention. It should NEVER be mixed with Dyazide or Maxide (other K sparing diuretics) as the combination causes the kidneys to shut down. The interaction was discovered by accident, and to my knowledge no intentional study has ever been done to screen for indomethacin interaction with other diuretics. So ARE YOUR KIDNEYS SHUTTING DOWN DUE TO AN INTERACTION? I have not checked the literature lately to see if anyone did a study, but as far as I know no one has. Indomethcin is much more complex than simple aspirin, and can supress the immune system. It does also have some mental effects. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic, that use to be restricted to just people with liver disease to counteract the build up of a natural hormone aldosterone that the liver normally inactivated. Aldosterone causes the kidneys to retain sodium at the expense of potassium. Anyway, Spironolactone promotes fatty tumors, and is thought by some to promote breast cancer, as most breast cancers start out as lipomas (fatty tumors). I am critical of review articles that promote spironolactone which overlook the fact that it promotes tumors, and think that other diuretics should be considered before this option. Answered by Hal Torkildsen 1 year ago.

You would probably be better off just taking some kind of OTC diuretic rather than the spiro. Both spiro and indo can cause stomach problems such as ulcers and bleeding, so I would avoid the 2. Just get something OTC at the store and see if that helps. If not, ask your doc to prescribe something, if fluid retention is indeed what is causing the weight gain.

Indomethacin has also been used clinically to delay premature labor, reduce amniotic fluid in polyhydramnios, and to close patent ductus arteriosus. Indomethacin is a potent drug with many serious side effects and should not be considered an analgesic for minor aches and pains or fever. The drug is more potent than aspirin, but is not a better analgesic. In mild to moderate pain a standard oral dose of indomethacin proved as effective as 600 mg aspirin. Generally, overdose in humans causes drowsiness, dizziness, severe headache, mental confusion, paresthesia, numbness of limbs, nausea and vomiting. Severe gastrointestinal bleeding is also possible. Cerebral edema, and cardiac arrest with fatal outcome have been seen in children. Answered by Rhonda Yosko 1 year ago.

Advil = indomethacin?
can advil be substituted ? taking 50 mg indo every 6 hours for detox. headaches, prozac how much advil would be equal to what i am taking? Asked by Anitra Pilotte 1 year ago.

Indocin (Indomethacin) is for gouty arthritis. It has extensive side effects. I would never recommend using it for any condition other than gout. Indomethacin is occassionally used for other arthritic conditions, but very infrequently because of its side effects. Advil is one of many brand names for ibuprofen; Motrin is another. The over-the-counter strength is 200mg per tablet. The max prescription dose of ibuprofen is 800mg every 6 hours, in a healthy individual with normal kidney function. Always take ibuprofen with food or a snack. Hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Collene Spell 1 year ago.

Indomethacin and Ibuprofen are both drugs in a class called NSAIDS, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Before you substitute a prescribed NSAID for a non-prescription one, please call your Doctor. If he is not available, at least call the Pharmacist where the prescription was filled. The drugs are NOT all equal, and neither are their side effects. Answered by Osvaldo Servantes 1 year ago.


I've been taking indomethacin for 1 week. Is gaining weight a side effect.?
if it does cause fluid retention will taking spironolact or something similar keep the fluid off Asked by Chau Auiles 1 year ago.

indomethacin is an NSAID drug, like a super asprin, and just like asprin it can cause water retention. It should NEVER be mixed with Dyazide or Maxide (other K sparing diuretics) as the combination causes the kidneys to shut down. The interaction was discovered by accident, and to my knowledge no intentional study has ever been done to screen for indomethacin interaction with other diuretics. So ARE YOUR KIDNEYS SHUTTING DOWN DUE TO AN INTERACTION? I have not checked the literature lately to see if anyone did a study, but as far as I know no one has. Indomethcin is much more complex than simple aspirin, and can supress the immune system. It does also have some mental effects. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic, that use to be restricted to just people with liver disease to counteract the build up of a natural hormone aldosterone that the liver normally inactivated. Aldosterone causes the kidneys to retain sodium at the expense of potassium. Anyway, Spironolactone promotes fatty tumors, and is thought by some to promote breast cancer, as most breast cancers start out as lipomas (fatty tumors). I am critical of review articles that promote spironolactone which overlook the fact that it promotes tumors, and think that other diuretics should be considered before this option. Answered by Terrie Falconi 1 year ago.

You would probably be better off just taking some kind of OTC diuretic rather than the spiro. Both spiro and indo can cause stomach problems such as ulcers and bleeding, so I would avoid the 2.

Indomethacin is like supercharged ibuprofen--with same common side effect of gastric irritation. Drugs like this are usually the first choice for pain relief in carpal tunnel, but often don't work. If the Toradol didn't work then I'm sorry to say that the indomethacin probably won't either. I am surprised that someone prescribed him Vicodin earlier. Opioids usually aren't prescribed for carpal tunnel and are generally discouraged for treatment of neuropathic pain (carpal tunnel pain is caused by compression of a nerve). The traditional thinking is that opioids don't work for neuropathic pain, but there is mixed evidence out there. Pain is always a difficult thing to get objective data on. A steroid shot is also a possibility, but should only be done by the orthopedic surgeon (don't let a family practice doc do it). Generally one shot will probably help. Subsequent shots usually don't.

Indomethacin is like supercharged ibuprofen--with same common side effect of gastric irritation. Drugs like this are usually the first choice for pain relief in carpal tunnel, but often don't work. If the Toradol didn't work then I'm sorry to say that the indomethacin probably won't either. I am surprised that someone prescribed him Vicodin earlier. Opioids usually aren't prescribed for carpal tunnel and are generally discouraged for treatment of neuropathic pain (carpal tunnel pain is caused by compression of a nerve). The traditional thinking is that opioids don't work for neuropathic pain, but there is mixed evidence out there. Pain is always a difficult thing to get objective data on. A steroid shot is also a possibility, but should only be done by the orthopedic surgeon (don't let a family practice doc do it). Generally one shot will probably help. Subsequent shots usually don't.

Indomethacin is not an antibiotic, it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that is used to relieve moderate to severe pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness mainly for arthritis. Indomethacin is also sometimes used to relieve fever, pain, and inflammation caused by many types of conditions or injuries, to reduce the amount of calcium in the blood, and to treat a certain type of low blood pressure It should be taken with food immediately after meals at the same time every day, so yes, take your vitamin at the same time as it is digested with food better also...

What is indomethacin for?
what is indomethaicin Asked by Kasha Severs 1 year ago.

Indocin (indomethacin) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, and swelling. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, molecules known to cause these symptoms. Indomethacin has also been used clinically to delay premature labor, reduce amniotic fluid in polyhydramnios, and to close patent ductus arteriosus. Indomethacin is a potent drug with many serious side effects and should not be considered an analgesic for minor aches and pains or fever. The drug is more potent than aspirin, but is not a better analgesic. In mild to moderate pain a standard oral dose of indomethacin proved as effective as 600 mg aspirin. Generally, overdose in humans causes drowsiness, dizziness, severe headache, mental confusion, paresthesia, numbness of limbs, nausea and vomiting. Severe gastrointestinal bleeding is also possible. Cerebral edema, and cardiac arrest with fatal outcome have been seen in children. Answered by Glinda Apollo 1 year ago.

Indocin (Indomethacin) is for gouty arthritis. It has extensive side effects. I would never recommend using it for any condition other than gout. Indomethacin is occassionally used for other arthritic conditions, but very infrequently because of its side effects. Advil is one of many brand names for ibuprofen; Motrin is another. The over-the-counter strength is 200mg per tablet. The max prescription dose of ibuprofen is 800mg every 6 hours, in a healthy individual with normal kidney function. Always take ibuprofen with food or a snack. Hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Treena Thavichith 1 year ago.

Indomethacin and Ibuprofen are both drugs in a class called NSAIDS, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Before you substitute a prescribed NSAID for a non-prescription one, please call your Doctor. If he is not available, at least call the Pharmacist where the prescription was filled. The drugs are NOT all equal, and neither are their side effects. Answered by Ria Azatyan 1 year ago.


I've been taking indomethacin for 1 week. Is gaining weight a side effect.?
if it does cause fluid retention will taking spironolact or something similar keep the fluid off Asked by Opal Kailey 1 year ago.

indomethacin is an NSAID drug, like a super asprin, and just like asprin it can cause water retention. It should NEVER be mixed with Dyazide or Maxide (other K sparing diuretics) as the combination causes the kidneys to shut down. The interaction was discovered by accident, and to my knowledge no intentional study has ever been done to screen for indomethacin interaction with other diuretics. So ARE YOUR KIDNEYS SHUTTING DOWN DUE TO AN INTERACTION? I have not checked the literature lately to see if anyone did a study, but as far as I know no one has. Indomethcin is much more complex than simple aspirin, and can supress the immune system. It does also have some mental effects. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic, that use to be restricted to just people with liver disease to counteract the build up of a natural hormone aldosterone that the liver normally inactivated. Aldosterone causes the kidneys to retain sodium at the expense of potassium. Anyway, Spironolactone promotes fatty tumors, and is thought by some to promote breast cancer, as most breast cancers start out as lipomas (fatty tumors). I am critical of review articles that promote spironolactone which overlook the fact that it promotes tumors, and think that other diuretics should be considered before this option. Answered by Deirdre Rousselle 1 year ago.

You would probably be better off just taking some kind of OTC diuretic rather than the spiro. Both spiro and indo can cause stomach problems such as ulcers and bleeding, so I would avoid the 2.

can advil be substituted ? taking 50 mg indo every 6 hours for detox. headaches, prozac how much advil would be equal to what i am taking? Asked by Donetta Carnrike 1 year ago.

Indocin (Indomethacin) is for gouty arthritis. It has extensive side effects. I would never recommend using it for any condition other than gout. Indomethacin is occassionally used for other arthritic conditions, but very infrequently because of its side effects. Advil is one of many brand names for ibuprofen; Motrin is another. The over-the-counter strength is 200mg per tablet. The max prescription dose of ibuprofen is 800mg every 6 hours, in a healthy individual with normal kidney function. Always take ibuprofen with food or a snack. Hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Scotty Carretta 1 year ago.

Indomethacin and Ibuprofen are both drugs in a class called NSAIDS, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Before you substitute a prescribed NSAID for a non-prescription one, please call your Doctor. If he is not available, at least call the Pharmacist where the prescription was filled. The drugs are NOT all equal, and neither are their side effects. Answered by Gay Shapouri 1 year ago.


I've been taking indomethacin for 1 week. Is gaining weight a side effect.?
if it does cause fluid retention will taking spironolact or something similar keep the fluid off Asked by Alvin Snodderly 1 year ago.

indomethacin is an NSAID drug, like a super asprin, and just like asprin it can cause water retention. It should NEVER be mixed with Dyazide or Maxide (other K sparing diuretics) as the combination causes the kidneys to shut down. The interaction was discovered by accident, and to my knowledge no intentional study has ever been done to screen for indomethacin interaction with other diuretics. So ARE YOUR KIDNEYS SHUTTING DOWN DUE TO AN INTERACTION? I have not checked the literature lately to see if anyone did a study, but as far as I know no one has. Indomethcin is much more complex than simple aspirin, and can supress the immune system. It does also have some mental effects. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic, that use to be restricted to just people with liver disease to counteract the build up of a natural hormone aldosterone that the liver normally inactivated. Aldosterone causes the kidneys to retain sodium at the expense of potassium. Anyway, Spironolactone promotes fatty tumors, and is thought by some to promote breast cancer, as most breast cancers start out as lipomas (fatty tumors). I am critical of review articles that promote spironolactone which overlook the fact that it promotes tumors, and think that other diuretics should be considered before this option. Answered by Shira Alampi 1 year ago.

You would probably be better off just taking some kind of OTC diuretic rather than the spiro. Both spiro and indo can cause stomach problems such as ulcers and bleeding, so I would avoid the 2.

What is indomethacin for?
what is indomethaicin Asked by Georgina Kaai 1 year ago.

Indocin (indomethacin) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, and swelling. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, molecules known to cause these symptoms. Indomethacin has also been used clinically to delay premature labor, reduce amniotic fluid in polyhydramnios, and to close patent ductus arteriosus. Indomethacin is a potent drug with many serious side effects and should not be considered an analgesic for minor aches and pains or fever. The drug is more potent than aspirin, but is not a better analgesic. In mild to moderate pain a standard oral dose of indomethacin proved as effective as 600 mg aspirin. Generally, overdose in humans causes drowsiness, dizziness, severe headache, mental confusion, paresthesia, numbness of limbs, nausea and vomiting. Severe gastrointestinal bleeding is also possible.

Opioids usually aren't prescribed for carpal tunnel and are generally discouraged for treatment of neuropathic pain (carpal tunnel pain is caused by compression of a nerve). The traditional thinking is that opioids don't work for neuropathic pain, but there is mixed evidence out there. Pain is always a difficult thing to get objective data on. A steroid shot is also a possibility, but should only be done by the orthopedic surgeon (don't let a family practice doc do it). Generally one shot will probably help. Subsequent shots usually don't. The most effective nonsurgical treatment however is still the good old-fashioned splint. The wrist needs to be immobilized in neutral position and he needs to rest that hand as much as possible.

doctors are scared to prescribe vicodin because its addictive, indocin works great from some people.. if you really want vicodin, tell him that you uresearched the indocin and didnt realize it was an nsaid, tell him that he has GERD and cant take nsaids because it gives him terrible heartburn... I am actually in that position in reality, and it ends up that I get the strong stuff when i need it.. could just be i have a more sympathtic dr though.. indocin is good stuff though Answered by Diana Barret 1 year ago.

I have taken it and it didn't really work that well. I would not waste $50 on it, I would just take ibuprofen. Why all the exclamation points? No need to yell at us!!!! Answered by Setsuko Vanbrocklin 1 year ago.


Taking Antibiotic Indomethacin with Multi Vitamin ok?
I have been taking a antibiotic for about two weeks and have two weeks left. I want to take a multi vitamin if it is ok?! Any ideas! Asked by Berna Gabel 1 year ago.

Indomethacin is not an antibiotic, it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) that is used to relieve moderate to severe pain, tenderness, swelling, and stiffness mainly for arthritis. Indomethacin is also sometimes used to relieve fever, pain, and inflammation caused by many types of conditions or injuries, to reduce the amount of calcium in the blood, and to treat a certain type of low blood pressure It should be taken with food immediately after meals at the same time every day, so yes, take your vitamin at the same time as it is digested with food better also...

For Patent ductus arteriosus, why is indomethacin mixed with vodka?
Asked by Myesha Valine 1 year ago.

Because, Indomethacin is not soluble in water. Any other alcoholic concentrated beverage can work just as well... The ductus arteriosus remains patent during about 12 hours after an oral dose of 1.2 miligrams of indomethacin of kilogram of weight of the newborn.... So the dose is repeated until surgical intervention ) or catheter patch, or better, a bilibated silastic small baloon) is placed in the ductus arteriosus between the aorctic arch ant the main trunk of the pulmonary artery (the indomethacin just buys time, keeping the hole open) Answered by Yun Capria 1 year ago.


What is indomethacin for?
what is indomethaicin Asked by Gillian Sherard 1 year ago.

Indocin (indomethacin) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly used to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, and swelling. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, molecules known to cause these symptoms. Indomethacin has also been used clinically to delay premature labor, reduce amniotic fluid in polyhydramnios, and to close patent ductus arteriosus. Indomethacin is a potent drug with many serious side effects and should not be considered an analgesic for minor aches and pains or fever. The drug is more potent than aspirin, but is not a better analgesic. In mild to moderate pain a standard oral dose of indomethacin proved as effective as 600 mg aspirin. Generally, overdose in humans causes drowsiness, dizziness, severe headache, mental confusion, paresthesia, numbness of limbs, nausea and vomiting. Severe gastrointestinal bleeding is also possible. Cerebral edema, and cardiac arrest with fatal outcome have been seen in children. Answered by Lee Denn 1 year ago.

It is a NSAID, a painkiller. It may upset your stomach. It is better not to take it with empty stomach. Answered by Whitney Frevert 1 year ago.


Advil = indomethacin?
can advil be substituted ? taking 50 mg indo every 6 hours for detox. headaches, prozac how much advil would be equal to what i am taking? Asked by Patrina Corcuera 1 year ago.

Indocin (Indomethacin) is for gouty arthritis. It has extensive side effects. I would never recommend using it for any condition other than gout. Indomethacin is occassionally used for other arthritic conditions, but very infrequently because of its side effects. Advil is one of many brand names for ibuprofen; Motrin is another. The over-the-counter strength is 200mg per tablet. The max prescription dose of ibuprofen is 800mg every 6 hours, in a healthy individual with normal kidney function. Always take ibuprofen with food or a snack. Hope this helps. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Delora Rutar 1 year ago.

Indomethacin and Ibuprofen are both drugs in a class called NSAIDS, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Before you substitute a prescribed NSAID for a non-prescription one, please call your Doctor. If he is not available, at least call the Pharmacist where the prescription was filled. The drugs are NOT all equal, and neither are their side effects. Answered by Lorelei Nakonechny 1 year ago.


I've been taking indomethacin for 1 week. Is gaining weight a side effect.?
if it does cause fluid retention will taking spironolact or something similar keep the fluid off Asked by Xiomara Vibbard 1 year ago.

indomethacin is an NSAID drug, like a super asprin, and just like asprin it can cause water retention. It should NEVER be mixed with Dyazide or Maxide (other K sparing diuretics) as the combination causes the kidneys to shut down. The interaction was discovered by accident, and to my knowledge no intentional study has ever been done to screen for indomethacin interaction with other diuretics. So ARE YOUR KIDNEYS SHUTTING DOWN DUE TO AN INTERACTION? I have not checked the literature lately to see if anyone did a study, but as far as I know no one has. Indomethcin is much more complex than simple aspirin, and can supress the immune system. It does also have some mental effects. Spironolactone is a potassium sparing diuretic, that use to be restricted to just people with liver disease to counteract the build up of a natural hormone aldosterone that the liver normally inactivated. Aldosterone causes the kidneys to retain sodium at the expense of potassium. Anyway, Spironolactone promotes fatty tumors, and is thought by some to promote breast cancer, as most breast cancers start out as lipomas (fatty tumors). I am critical of review articles that promote spironolactone which overlook the fact that it promotes tumors, and think that other diuretics should be considered before this option. Answered by Grover Ianni 1 year ago.

You would probably be better off just taking some kind of OTC diuretic rather than the spiro. Both spiro and indo can cause stomach problems such as ulcers and bleeding, so I would avoid the 2. Just get something OTC at the store and see if that helps. If not, ask your doc to prescribe something, if fluid retention is indeed what is causing the weight gain. Answered by Leon Ducksworth 1 year ago.

Fluid retention is quite common. Answered by Roxanne Dorian 1 year ago.
