Indomethacin Overview

Indometacin, also known as indomethacin, is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) commonly used as a prescription medication to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, and swelling from inflammation. It works by inhibiting the production of prostaglandins, endogenous signaling molecules known to cause these symptoms. It does this by inhibiting cyclooxygenase, an enzyme that catalyzes the production of prostaglandins.[1][2] It was patented in 1961 and approved fo...

indomrthacin

can you take other pain medications wiht this perscription? ## can you take indomethacin and percocet? ## It is not generally advised, Indomethacin is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and Percocet contains Acetaminophen, which is also a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, thus combining the two is not necessary and could be dangerous, as you could overdose. You can read more about Indomethacin here: and Percocet: Is there anything else I can help you with? ## I am in AGONY! When I started taking indomethacin it worked like a charm!!! But now if I take one for a migraine it immediately gets worse, even with ice over my eyes while sleeping. When I wake up it feels like I have been hit in the face with a brick!!!!! I dont want to take this anymore... Any remedies or suggestions????

side effects of indomethacin

I am trying to find out the side effects of the medicine indomethacin. ## SERAM URIC ACID ## hurts to swallow=not a sore throat-but painful to swallow ## This medication is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, it is very potent, so the FDA warns that it can be very harsh on the stomach. It may also cause other side effects, such as nausea, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. Are there any markings on the medication you have received? ## Hi, I just started on indomethacin & am experiencing nausea, indigestion & an upset stomach. Do these disappear or do you have to put up with them?

mexican medication ardosons capsules

Can my 12 year old boy take Ardosons capsules? He twisted his ankle and it's swelled. Pls let me know. ## Hi Rosa, Because the ingredients found in Ardosons are given by prescription-only here in the US, I can only recommend that you contact a doctor who can evaluate your son's condition in person and make an appropriate decision after reviewing his medical records and other pertinent details that may influence the course of treatment. I understand that in Mexico these types of medications have looser restrictions than the US, but to ensure your child's safety I think it would be worth your while to seek out a professional opinion. Just for your own information, the active ingredients found in Ardosons are: Indomethacin (which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory) + Betameth...

Ardosons capsule 25 mg

I am having a reaction to the medication ardosons and trying to get more details about this drug. ## Hi stephanie, Sorry to hear about your reaction to that medication. Are you feeling any better now? Based on my research, the ingredients found in Ardosons are: Indomethacin, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory; Betamethasone, which is a steroid class medication; and Methocarbamol, which is a muscle relaxant. Since each medication can effect you differently, I think you really have to look at each drug's individual profile to get a better idea of what side effects are really associated with the medication as a whole. It may also be a good idea to contact your doctor about any safer alternatives to Ardosons. You can learn more about these drugs on the pages for: Indomethacin Det...

Ardosons availability

The last time I bought this was in Mexico but I need more. Where can I buy this in the Coachella Valley? Do I need a prescription from a Doctor? This is all I need to know at this time. ## I need 1 box ardosons capsulas, for inflamacion rtrithis ## Ardosons reportedly contains the following set of active ingredients [Indomethacin + Betamethasone + Methocarbamol] all of which are prescription drugs here in the US. So you will need to visit your doctor in order to acquire it legally. In Mexico it's a different story, as the laws surrounding these drugs as well as other 'would-be' controlled substances are generously lenient, making them easily accessible to the masses. If you live in or near Mexico, surely that would make things convenient, but otherwise your best bet is setti...

Indometacina/metocarbamol/betametasona

I have a green and white capsule that have all three ingredients in it is this safe to take and for how long is it for inflamation? ## One drug is a safe as any other, they all carry risks. As to how long you should take it, you should really consult a doctor, because it depends on the severity of the condition being treated and how well it responds to treatment. Since this does contain the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory Indomethacin, it can cause blood thinning and stomach irritation, which can worsen with long-term usage, so you do need to be careful. The Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant, which may cause dry mouth, headache and dizziness. The Betamethasone is a type of steroid, so it may cause fluid retention, weight gain and a compromised immune system. Learn more: Are there any ot...
