For Gout, Acute: Within 24hrs pain and swelling decreased significantly from 10 to 3 on pain scale. My only side effect was diarrhea.

For Gout, Acute: Good results for gout within a day or so of treatment. Relieved pain very rapidly, but a bit slower dealing with the swelling.

For Gout, Acute: After 3 days of initial Prednisone 20mg, the 1st day of Indocin I went from 8-2 on the pain scale! I was so grateful! And NO side effects!

For Osteoarthritis: 150 mg per day has left my knees completely pain free! Unfortunately, now my dr. wants me to take less, to avoid doing damage to my stomach.

For Gout, Acute: Naproxen and Ibuprofen helped, but didn't stop my gout attack. Indocin made the attack go away in a day!

For Gout, Acute: This medicine took the pain away very quickly, but then I had ringing in my ear which was very annoying. I stopped taking because I could not take this side effect.

For Pain: I would like to say that I went to the E.R and they couldn't find out why I was having the chest pains also PE (pulmonary embolism) had been ruled out. Every time I took a breath it was so painful they were giving me morphine every hour the pain would not subside, so I went to my primary care physician and he diagnosed me with pleurisy which is a inflammation of the lining of your lungs so he prescribed Indocin for me and after one day I started getting serious relief.

For Back Pain: I have battled with scoliosis for 15 years and have been given all kinds of nsaids to help with the pain..This was the most recent and it has done nothing for the pain I'm experiencing.

For Bursitis: I have been diagnosed with bursitis in my right heal and I got great relief after taking Indocin for about two days. It is not as painful.

For Pain: I can not longer use Imitrex or related drugs for migraine pain due to heart issues. In searching for an alternative migraine treatment, my doctor prescribed Indocin. Alone Indocin can't relieve migraine pain, but combined with Midrin, I get relief. I'm in the midst of weekly migraines. They had been reduced with Midrin, but still lasted days. Now, combining the two, I can break the migraine cycle.

For Gout, Acute: Indocin or indomethacin in my opinion is very effective in relieving gout symptoms. Taking 25mg at my first opportunity (the point where I convince myself that I did nothing to stub my toe and it is a gout attack) quickly reduces the pain. I have not experienced the stomach pains or paranoia that the previous post talks about. I always take this medicine with food and drink as directed by my physician.

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: Before taking Indocin aches and pain are felt throughout my joints. When I take it at night I sleep better and the following day I feel the pain is diminished by 60% or better. I stop taking them after 3 to 4 days and start when the pain gets unbearable.

For Pain: If your stomach can tolerate this it is great for arthritis. I have taken for over 20 years. Everytime I try anything else I end up in pain.

For Osteoarthritis: I started with 2 x 25 mg capsules a day. After 2 days I really feel my knees are out of pain. I hope the effect will remain after leaving the medicine.
