In my non-medically educated opinion I would say they will still damage your gut because they dissolve in your blood stream and they know "no" boundaries to "what" they are supposed to de-inflame. So eventually they will shrink the cushy lining of your stomach allowing your own natural stomach acid to eat through leading to greater permeability and klebs proliferation.

Take Care,
Donette

Having been a real fan of Indocid suppositories in the late 80s and early -> mid 90s, I'd have to say that they have a great effect - longer lastng and better pain relief than oral NSAIDs...

However, having discussed the PR (per rectal) V oral route with various medicos, it is the actual blood level rather than the route of administration that is supposed to be the crucial factor in damaging the gut. I would have thought that they might have been even more effective at ripping holes in the Home of the Nasty Klebs (large bowel), but have been told no...

Has your GP given you a logical reason to use :

1. such an 'old' NSAID

2. The benefits of the PR route V oral?

How's the NSD going? I thought you were off NSAIDs - or is your high cholesterol still hampering your NSD path?

Hi Louise, thanks for taking the time to reply to my questions.
Answer 1. My GP asked me if anything has improved the pain in my back in the past and i said Indocid SP helped me when i first started having problems. (was in the army then & was 20 years ago) Her computer printer spat out a script before i could even dispute the decision.

2. No explanation/reason given.

** I was hoping to get some pain killers of some kind & when i re-asked about them, she said Indocid is pain killer and was shown the door.

I suppose the fact no good DR's want to practice in a lead polluted [*bleep*] hole like Pirie shouldnt come as any suprise to me. We seem to get B grade imports at best.

I lost my way for a bit with the NSD because of the cholesterol & Dr telling me im gonna have a heart attck or stroke within the next 2 years if i dont take her drugs. I hit the oats, salmon, nightshade veggies etc really hard and im back to just about normal ( i posted my blood test in the other thread ). Im now back on the NSD - in fact i went and got paleo diet book im thinking of following a NSD paleo diet. Im living my life drug free. If i need some help with my health im going the herbal option. only time ill do the drugs is if in hospital.

Hi Darryn
I did a trial of those not long after diagnosis. Yes, they killed the pain very effectively, but wow, I was extremely dizzy and nauseated on them. I think if a medicine has extreme negative side effects, its not the right one.
Good luck
Felicity

Hey Darryn,
I'm like Felicity - had a pretty bad reaction (mucho vomiting, bad stomach pain) with indocin suppositories.

Did your stomach tolerate indocid back then? It's one of the harsher NSAIDs according to my new GP. Wouldn't be unreasonable for you to return and request a different one, if that's what you want.

Good luck with the NSD/Paleo diet.

I had a nasty adverse reaction to this drug in the 90s
Severe panic attack!
Heart palpitations and weird panicky thoughts
I only took one when the prescribed dose was two
I hate to think what might have happened if I took the full dose
When I start something new(natural or medical)
I always start with a minimum dose in case Im hypersensitive
Good luck!
