The pain is eased for me after thr first day, it's gone at the end of the second day. I'm usually good for about another 6-9 months until another gout attack.

I started taking it (3 times a day) the next day after my gout started. It worked very well and even worked well on my arthritic hip.

BEST gout medication ever made. Dr has tried me on many others but I always have to go back to Indocin for a major flare up. Nothing comes close to relieving the pain and swelling. I always have some around just in case. I get the gout 2 or 3 times ayear for the last 30 years. I eat wrong,red meat, spicy stuff and drink alot of beer. Indocin keeps me going. LOL
