What is Indometacin for?

Please note:  This medication is only suitable for short-term relief of gout, and longer-term sufferers should also visit their own GP.

Please note:  Only buy Indometacin gout treatment for current symptoms. It cannot be used as a preventative.

Indometacin, or Indomethacin, is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic properties. It can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. The medication dramatically speeds up the easing of your gout symptoms.

How does Indometacin work?

Indometacin works by stopping the effect of chemicals in your body, called cyclo-oxygenase (COX) enzymes. These enzymes are involved with the production of chemicals in the body, called prostaglandins, which are produced at sites of injury or damage, resulting in pain and inflammation. If the effect of COX enzymes are blocked, this means less prostaglandins are produced, easing pain and inflammation.

How to take Indometacin Capsules

When you buy Indometacin for gout, always take the medication exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

It is important to take your medicine with food or with an antacid; this will help you to prevent any stomach disturbance.

Dose to treat acute gout attack:

When you buy Indometacin online for gout, always read the Patient Information Leaflet (PIL), as the medicine has differing doses depending on what you are taking the medication to treat.

To alleviate the symptoms of an acute attack of gout, the PIL states you should take 50mg three or four times a day until your symptoms decrease.
