I also would like to know if it is non-narcotic
Etodolac is not a narcotic. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. NSAIDs treat the symptoms of pain and inflammation. They do not treat the disease that causes those symptoms.
Etodolac is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by arthritis or osteoarthritis.
I don't know exactly what the effect of Etodolac is on gastroparesis. Just thinking along the lines ... perhaps less of the Etodolac will be absorbed and therefore less effective. Or if Etodolac remains in the stomach for long... i.e. isn't cleared quickly then it may cause irritation in the stomach.
