Indomethacin is an NSAID with antipyretic and analgesic properties. Numerous pharmacological investigations have demonstrated Indomethacin’s potent anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antipyretic effects. Unlike corticosteroids, Indomethacin has no impact on the pituitary gland or the adrenals. Indomethacin is rapidly absorbed after oral treatment, with peak plasma levels occurring within 2 hours. Two-thirds of this quantity is eliminated in the urine, with the remaining excreted in the feces. In 24-48 hours, about 90% of a single dosage is eliminated. Indomethacin has been shown to be effective in the treatment of rheumatic illnesses in a number of controlled clinical trials. It relieves pain, decreases joint swelling and edema, and increases joint mobility.
