Indomethacin                                  25 mg or 50 mg

PROPERTIES :

INDOMETHACIN is a potent non-steroidal antirheumatic,anti- inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic agent. these therapeutic effects are associated with the remarkable decrease in the synthesis of prostaglandins induced by INDOMETHACIN through its potent inhibitory action on prostaglandin- forming cyclooxygenase enzyme. As a result, on administration of INDOMETHACIN, the inflammations are effectively supressed with rapid relief of associated pains and the fever is reduced. swelling and tenderness of inflamed joints disappear and their normal functions are restored. INDOMETHACIN, administered as enteric coated capsules, is well tolerated with much less gastric irritation than in the regular preparations of the drug.
