Answer

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs

Management of pain and inflammation in gout. Have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties. Inhibit the enzyme cyclooxygenase, thus inhibiting biosynthesis of prostaglandins and thromboxanes from arachidonic acid.

Indomethacin (Indochron E-R, Indocin)

Rapidly absorbed. Metabolism occurs in liver by demethylation, deacetylation, and glucuronide conjugation. Inhibits prostaglandin synthesis.

Discontinue 3-4 d following symptom resolution.
