Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent
Indomethacin has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic, as well as some antiplatelet effects. Suppresses the activity of anti-inflammatory factors, reduces platelet aggregation. Inhibiting cyclooxygenase 1 and 2, violates the metabolism of arachidonic acid, reduces the number of prostaglandins (Pg) in the inflammation and in healthy tissues, suppresses the exudative and proliferative phases of inflammation.
When applied externally, it causes weakening or disappearance of pain syndrome of a rheumatic and non-rheumatic nature (including with pains in the joints at rest and during movement, reduces morning stiffness and swelling of the joints, contributes to an increase in the volume of movements; during inflammatory processes that occur after surgery and injuries, quickly relieves both spontaneous pain and pain when moving, reduces inflammatory swelling at the wound site).
When ingestion bioavailability is 98%, with rectal - 85%. Intensively binds to plasma proteins. T1/2 - 4–9 h. Metabolized mainly in the liver. Mainly excreted in the urine (60-75%), 30% - through the gastrointestinal tract. Not removed during dialysis. Penetrates into breast milk.
When applied topically, indomethacin is practically not absorbed into the systemic circulation.
