Code CAS 53-86-1

Characteristics of Indomethacin

NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), an indoleacetic acid derivative.

A white or slightly yellowish powder, odorless or almost odorless. Almost nerastvorim in the water. Moderately soluble in ethanol, chloroform, ether. Soluble in alkali solutions.


Pharmacological action - anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic.

Inhibits cyclooxygenase (COX (cyclooxygenase) -1 and COX-2), reduces the synthesis of PG, causing the development of pain in the focus of inflammation, increased temperature and increased tissue permeability. Has antiaggregant effect.

It causes weakening or disappearance of the pain syndrome of rheumatic and non-rheumatic nature (including pain in joints at rest and during movement, reduces morning stiffness and swelling of joints, promotes an increase in the volume of movements, inflammatory processes that occur after operations and trauma, quickly facilitates both spontaneous pain and pain during movement, reduces inflammatory edema at the wound site).

After ingestion of a single dose of 25 or 50 mg quickly absorbed, Tmax - about 2 hours; when used rectally, the absorption rate is higher. When administered orally, the bioavailability is 90-98%, with rectal administration slightly lower - 80-90%, which is probably due to insufficient suppressor retention time (less than 1 hour) to ensure complete absorption. Binding to plasma proteins is 90-98%. T1 / 2 - 4-9 hours With daily intake of 25 or 50 mg of indomethacin three times a day, the equilibrium concentration is 1.4 times higher than the concentration after a single dose. Biotransformiruetsya mainly in the liver. In blood plasma is in the form of unchanged substance and desmethyl-, desbenzoyl- and desmethyl-desbenzoylmetabolites, present in unconjugated form. Excreted mainly by the kidneys - 70% (30% - unchanged) and gastrointestinal tract - 30%. Passes through GEB, placenta, penetrates into breast milk. It is not removed during hemodialysis.

When instillation of eye drops penetrates into the anterior chamber of the eye. After a single instillation is determined in the moisture of the anterior chamber for several hours.

Carcinogenicity, mutagenicity, effects on fertility

In a 81-week study of chronic toxicity in rats when administered orally at doses up to 1 mg / kg / day, no carcinogenic effect was observed. In studies of carcinogenicity in rats (study period - 73-110 weeks) and in mice (study period - 62-88 weeks) at doses up to 1.5 mg / kg / day, indomethacin caused neoplastic or hyperplastic changes.

No indomethacin mutagenicity has been detected in a number of bacterial tests in vitro (Ames test, E. coli test with / without metabolic activation) and in a series of in vivo tests, including the test for sex-linked recessive Drosophyla flies, a micronuclear test in mice.

In studies of reproduction, incl. in two generations, at a dose level of up to 0.5 mg / kg / day, indomethacin had no effect on fertility in mice and in rats.

Use of indomethacin

For systemic use (inside, in / m, rectally)

Inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system: rheumatoid, psoriatic, juvenile chronic arthritis, arthritis in Paget and Reiter's disease, neuralgic amyotrophy (Pursonage-Turner's disease), ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew's disease), gouty arthritis, rheumatism. Pain syndrome: headache (including menstrual syndrome) and toothache, lumbago, sciatica, neuralgia, myalgia, after injuries and surgical interventions accompanied by inflammation, bursitis and tendonitis (most effective for localization in the shoulder and forearm area). Algodismenorea, for the preservation of pregnancy, Barter's syndrome (secondary hyperaldosteronism), pericarditis (symptomatic treatment), labor (as an analgesic and tocolytic agent in preterm labor), inflammatory processes in the pelvis, incl. adnexitis, non-healing of the botulinum duct. Infectious and inflammatory diseases of ENT organs with severe pain syndrome (as part of complex therapy): pharyngitis, tonsillitis, otitis media. Feverish syndrome (including with lymphogranulomatosis, other lymphomas and hepatic metastases of solid tumors) - in case of ineffectiveness of acetylsalicylic acid and paracetamol.

For topical application (with application to the skin)

Traumatically caused inflammation of the tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints (as a result of stretching, dislocation, after a load and bruises). Localized forms of inflammation of soft tissues, incl. tendovaginitis, tendonitis, shoulder-arm syndrome, bursitis, myalgia; radiculitis (sciatica, lumbago). Inflammatory and degenerative diseases of the musculoskeletal system (deforming osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, humeropathy periarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, osteochondrosis with radicular syndrome) with the exception of degenerative diseases of the hip joints.

In ophthalmology (eye drops): epithelial herpetic keratitis (including in the anamnesis), pregnancy, lactation period, children's age.

pregnancy and lactation

Teratogenic effects. Studies of teratogenicity in rats and mice using doses of 0.5; 1.0; 2.0 and 4.0 mg / kg / day, showed that at a dose of 4 mg / kg / day there was no increase in the frequency of developmental defects compared to the control group, except for delayed ossification in the fetuses (considered secondary to reduction average weight of fruit). In other studies, in mice, when using higher doses (5-15 mg / kg / day), toxicity and lethality for females, increased resorption and malformations of fetuses were detected. A comparative study in rodents using high doses of acetylsalicylic acid showed similar effects for females and their fetuses. However, reproductive studies in animals do not always predict effects in humans. Adequate and strictly controlled studies in pregnant women have not been conducted.

Nonteratogenic effects. Since the adverse effect of NSAIDs on the fetal cardiovascular system is known (premature closure of the ductus arteriosus), pregnancy should be avoided (especially in later terms).

The effects of indomethacin and other drugs of this class on the human fetus in the third trimester of pregnancy include: intrauterine closure of the arterial duct, insufficiency of the tricuspid valve and pulmonary hypertension; failure to cover the arterial duct in the postnatal period, resistant to drug correction; degenerative changes in the myocardium, platelet abnormalities leading to bleeding, intracranial hemorrhage, renal dysfunction or insufficiency, kidney damage / defect that can lead to kidney failure, oligohydramnion, gastrointestinal bleeding or perforation, increased risk of developing necrotizing enterocolitis.

In studies in rats and mice receiving indomethacin at doses of 4 mg / kg / day in the last 3 days of pregnancy, there was a decrease in body weight in females and a small number of female and fetal deaths. An increase in the frequency of neuronal necrosis in the diencephalon in viable fetuses was noted. At a dose of 2.0 mg / kg / day, there was no increase in the frequency of neuronal necrosis compared to the control group. Introduction 0.5 or 4.0 mg / kg / day in the first 3 days of life did not cause an increase in the frequency of neuronal necrosis.

Childbirth and delivery. In studies in rats, it has been shown that NSAIDs, like other agents that inhibit GH synthesis, increase the incidence of labored births, delay the onset of labor and delivery, and reduce the number of surviving pups.

Action category for fetus by FDA - S.

Indomethacin penetrates into breast milk, so you should stop breastfeeding for the duration of treatment or avoid the use of indomethacin during breastfeeding.

Side effects

Systemic side effects

From the nervous system and sensory organs: headache, dizziness, vertigo, agitation, irritability, excessive fatigue, drowsiness, depression, peripheral neuropathy, taste disorder, hearing loss, tinnitus, diplopia, blurred vision, corneal opacity, conjunctivitis.

From the cardiovascular system and blood (hematopoiesis, hemostasis): the development (aggravation) of chronic heart failure, tachyarrhythmia, edematous syndrome, increased blood pressure, bleeding (from the digestive tract, gingival, uterine, hemorrhoidal), anemia (including autoimmune hemolytic and aplastic), leukopenia, thrombocytopenia, eosinophilia, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenic purpura.

On the part of the gastrointestinal tract: NSAIDs-gastropathy, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, heartburn, decreased appetite, diarrhea, impaired liver function (increased liver transaminase activity, hyperbilirubinemia); with prolonged use in high doses - erosive and ulcerative lesions of the gastrointestinal tract.

On the part of the genitourinary system: renal dysfunction, proteinuria, hematuria, interstitial nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, papillary necrosis.

Allergic reactions: skin itching, rash, urticaria, exfoliative dermatitis, erythema nodosum, anaphylactic shock, bronchospasm, angioedema, toxic epidermal necrolysis (Lyell's syndrome).

Other: hyperglycemia, glucosuria, hyperkalemia, photosensitivity; aseptic meningitis (more often in patients with autoimmune diseases), increased sweating; local reactions for rectal administration: burning, itching of the skin, heaviness in the anorectal area, exacerbation of hemorrhoids.

When applied to the skin: allergic reactions; itching and hyperemia of the skin, a rash in the place of application, dry skin, burning; in isolated cases - exacerbation of psoriasis; with prolonged use - systemic manifestations.

When instilled into the eye: allergic reactions; with prolonged use - corneal opacity, conjunctivitis, systemic side effects.


Reduces the diuretic effect of potassium-sparing, thiazide and loop diuretics. Increases (mutually) the risk of developing side effects (primarily gastrointestinal lesions) of other NSAIDs. Increases plasma concentrations of digoxin, methotrexate and Li + preparations, which can lead to increased toxicity. Sharing with paracetamol increases the risk of developing nephrotoxicity. Ethanol, colchicine, glucocorticoids and corticotropin increase the risk of bleeding in the digestive tract. Strengthens hypoglycemic action of insulin and oral hypoglycemic drugs; strengthens the effect of indirect anticoagulants, antiaggregants, fibrinolytics (alteplase, streptokinase and urokinase) and increases the risk of bleeding. Against the background of the use of potassium-sparing diuretics, the risk of hyperkalemia increases; reduces the effectiveness of uricosuric and antihypertensive drugs (including beta-blockers); increases the side effects of mineral and glucocorticoids, estrogens. Cyclosporine and gold preparations increase nephrotoxicity (by suppressing the synthesis of PG in the kidneys). Cefamandol, cefoperazone, cefotetan, valproic acid - increase the frequency of hypoprothrombinemia and the risk of bleeding. Antacids and colestyramine reduce the absorption of indomethacin. Increases the toxicity of zidovudine (due to inhibition of metabolism), in newborns increases the risk of toxic effects of aminoglycosides (because reduces renal clearance and increases the concentration in the blood). Myelotoxic drugs increase the manifestation of hematotoxicity.

Update of information

ACE inhibitors and angiotensin II antagonists

NSAIDs can reduce the antihypertensive effect of ACE inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Indomethacin can reduce the antihypertensive effect of captopril and losartan. These interactions should be considered in patients taking NSAIDs simultaneously with ACE inhibitors or angiotensin II antagonists. In some patients with impaired renal function, the combined use of NSAIDs and ACE inhibitors or angiotensin II antagonists can lead to further impairment of renal function, including possible acute renal failure, which is usually reversible.


Symptoms: nausea, vomiting, severe headache, dizziness, memory impairment, disorientation; in severe cases - paresthesia, numbness of limbs and cramps.

Treatment: symptomatic therapy. Hemodialysis is ineffective.

Routes of administration

Inside, in / m, rectally, skin, conjunctival.

Precautions for Indomethacin

Particularly careful medical observation is required when indicating the history of allergic reactions to drugs of the "aspirin" series, the "aspirin" triad, peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum, as well as for clotting disorders, hyperbilirubinemia, thrombocytopenia, epilepsy, parkinsonism, depression, in children and old age.

Risk of cardiovascular complications. NSAIDs, incl. and indomethacin, may cause an increased risk of serious cardiovascular complications, incl. myocardial infarction and stroke, which can lead to death, especially with prolonged use. In patients with cardiovascular diseases or risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease, the risk is particularly high.

Risk of gastrointestinal complications. NSAIDs, incl. and indomethacin, cause an increased risk of serious GI side effects, including bleeding, ulceration and perforation of the stomach or intestines, which can be fatal, especially with prolonged use. These complications can occur at any time of use without foreboding symptoms. Elderly patients have a higher risk of serious gastrointestinal complications.

At the indication in the anamnesis of allergic reactions on NPVS apply only in urgent cases.

During treatment, it is necessary to monitor the picture of peripheral blood and the functional state of the liver and kidneys. If it is necessary to determine 17-ketosteroids, the drug should be discontinued 48 hours before the test.

For eye drops: after removal of contact lenses, instillation is performed after 5 minutes. If there is an infection or a threat of its development, local antibacterial treatment is prescribed at the same time.

Avoid contact with eyes, mucous membranes and open wound forms for dermal application.

During the treatment period, care must be taken when driving vehicles and engaging in other potentially hazardous activities that require increased concentration and speed of psychomotor reactions.

Update of information

Arterial hypertension

NSAIDs, incl. indomethacin, may be the cause of newly diagnosed or worsening of the current arterial hypertension, which may contribute to an increase in the incidence of cardiovascular complications.

It should be used NSAIDs, incl. indomethacin, with caution in patients with hypertension. A thorough monitoring of blood pressure is necessary at the beginning of treatment with NSAIDs and during the course of therapy.

Patients taking ACE inhibitors, thiazide or loop diuretics, or beta-adrenergic blockers may have a weakened response to antihypertensive therapy with NSAIDs.
