    Had severe outbreak of gout, Dr prescribed indocin, you must take this drug with food!!! I suggest you eat about 1/2 hour before taking or else your going to get dizzy and probably have diarrhea , it has definetly reduced the pain and swelling after only 2 pills, another great thing for reducing swelling is Turmeric ,it is a natural herb easily available, works well with no side effects!

    Prescribed for acute extremely intense pain in my ankle presumed to be gout. Doctor said it should help the pain quickly. 12 hours later I am still in agony. I wish a short dose of stronger pain meds would have been given along with this. So far 12 hours of agony and still waiting for something to kick in. Why allow me to suffer like this.
