What is Inmecin (Indomethacin) used for?
Inmecin (Indomethacin) is an oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) prescribed for the treatment of a wide variety of conditions causing pain or inflammation. The medication operates by preventing the action of enzymes in the body that cause the pain, irritation, and swelling associated with injuries. This makes it useful for treating muscle injuries, pulled muscles, minor injuries, or other similar conditions. Your doctor may also recommend its use for the treatment of other unlisted conditions.
How should I use Inmecin (Indomethacin)?
Inmecin (Indomethacin) is normally administered once or twice daily at a dosage of one tablet, but your individual instructions will depend on your age, weight, health condition, and the severity of your symptoms. These doses should be swallowed with a large glass of water and a meal to prevent nausea. Do not split, crush, or chew the tablets before use as this may destroy or change the effects of their contents. Discuss the medication with your doctor prior to beginning use to ensure the correct administration.
