Answer

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs

These agents are the most commonly used medications to control mild to moderate pain and to decrease inflammation.

Indomethacin (Indocin)

Indomethacin is rapidly absorbed; metabolism occurs in the liver by demethylation, deacetylation, and glucuronide conjugation; it inhibits prostaglandin synthesis.
