Very good and timely advice with the ACR just over and the skies full of flying rheumatologists.

Did you ever actually take indomethacin? Is it especially good for gout? As an RA patient I think it's the worst for your stomach of any Nsaid.


It is rather tough on the gut but it is the strongest ant-inflammatory. Since gout is only treated for a couple of days the side effects are not usually as bad. In fact, I've always been amazed at just how well gout patients do tolerate it. Maybe the pain relief outdoes the tummy upset. On the down side, if there are GI, renal or cardiac contra-indications, indomethacin is probably the worst choice.

Really good suggestion by you "To prevent gout attacks and other arthritic discomfort, drink a lot of fluids, alkalize yourself, walk around often, and do some flying yoga in-flight. "
