Pharmacology

Indomethacin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug with antipyretic and analgesic effects. Numerous pharmacological studies have shown that indomethacin has strong anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic effects. Unlike corticosteroids, the effects of indomethacin have nothing to do with the pituitary gland or the adrenal glands. Indomethacin is rapidly absorbed after oral administration and plasma peaks appear within 2 hours. About two-thirds of this amount is excreted in the urine and the rest is excreted in the feces. Approximately 90% of a single dose is excreted in 2448 hours. In a series of controlled clinical trials, indomethacin has been shown to be of significant value in the treatment of rheumatic diseases. It can reduce pain, reduce joint swelling and edema, and improve joint mobility.
