Went to see my eye specialist, and my eyes have got a bit worse and she wanted me to have steroid treatment in the hospital and I said no thanks. But she did say it would not improve my eye sight, just speed up the recovery a little. So I didn't think it was worth another inpatient visit, plus I blew up like a balloon last time and was worried it would happen again. So she wants me to try this medication to see if it makes any difference to my migraines, NDOMETHACIN 25 MG ORAL CAPSULE. But after I read some of the side affects it has scared me a bit to try it, I have reacted to new drugs lately and if you have good or bad advice I would appreciate any input. Take care everyone, Liz.
Has anyone got any advice about taking this medication?

Hellop there Liz. Just dropping by to say hello. I am afraid I cannot answer your question. Hopefully one of the nurses will offer you some insight. Take care of yourself, weekend nears but for those retired its just two more days to cook up a storm! I missed my calling in life, in the after life I sincerely will like to come back as a Master Chef :-0) Bye bye Liz
I just wanted to say hello & I am so sorry you are still fighting with your eye sight & tell you that you have been in my thoughts & prayers.
Unfortunately I cannot help you out with your question. I have never heard of that before.
That medication is for your migraines?
And what did your dr. say about the medication?
Since you are not going to go to the hospital.
How are they treating your eye problem?
Take care of your self & I hope the new medication works for you. Kathy

Yes, I have used it before, when they were trying to find something to help me with the migraines years ago. All it did was mess up my stomach as it is an NSAID. I don't know the reason why your doctor wants to prescribe it, but you have to weigh the costs v. the benefits. I have never heard of an NSAID being prescribed for your eyes, but then I am not a doctor either. Perhaps if this is the medication that you are referring, then more people can answer who have taken the med.
