  11. 11. Generic Indocin Capsules Warnings And Precautions ➔Cardiovascular Thrombotic Events: Increased risk of serious cardiovascular (CV) thrombotic events, myocardial infarction, and stroke, which can be fatal. All NSAIDs, both COX-2 selective and nonselective, may have a similar risk. ➔Hypertension: NSAIDs, including indomethacin, can lead to onset of new hypertension or worsening of preexisting hypertension, either of which may contribute to the increased incidence of cardiovascular events. ➔Congestive Heart Failure and Edema: Fluid retention and edema have been observed in some patients taking NSAIDs. Indomethacin should be used with caution in patients with fluid retention or heart failure. © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
  12. 12. Generic Indocin Capsules Warnings And Precautions ➔Gastrointestinal Effects: Risk of Ulceration, Bleeding, and Perforation: NSAIDs, including Indomethacin, can cause serious gastrointestinal (GI) adverse events including inflammation, bleeding, ulceration, and perforation of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, or large intestine, which can be fatal. ➔Renal Effects: Long-term administration of NSAIDs has resulted in renal papillary necrosis and other renal injury. Renal toxicity has also been seen in patients in whom renal prostaglandins have a compensatory role in the maintenance of renal perfusion. ➔Advanced Renal Disease: Treatment with Indomethacin is not recommended in these patients with advanced renal disease. © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
  13. 13. Generic Indocin Capsules Warnings And Precautions ➔Anaphylactic/Anaphylactoid Reactions: As with other NSAIDs, anaphylactic/anaphylactoid reactions may occur in patients without known prior exposure to indomethacin. Indomethacin should not be given to patients with the aspirin triad. This symptom complex typically occurs in asthmatic patients who experience rhinitis with or without nasal polyps, or who exhibit severe, potentially fatal bronchospasm after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs. ➔Skin Reactions: NSAIDs, including indomethacin, can cause serious skin adverse events such as exfoliative dermatitis, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS), and toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), which can be fatal. These serious events may occur without warning. Patients should be informed about the signs and symptoms of serious skin manifestations and use of the drug should be discontinued at the first appearance of skin rash or any other sign of hypersensitivity. © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
  14. 14. Generic Indocin Capsules Warnings And Precautions ➔Pregnancy: In late pregnancy, as with other NSAIDs, Generic Indocin should be avoided because it may cause premature closure of the ductus arteriosus. ➔Ocular Effects: Corneal deposits and retinal disturbances, including those of the macula, have been observed in some patients who had received prolonged therapy with Indomethacin. Blurred vision may be a significant symptom and warrants a thorough ophthalmological examination. Since these changes may be asymptomatic, ophthalmologic examination at periodic intervals is desirable in patients where therapy is prolonged. © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
  15. 15. Generic Indocin Capsules Warnings And Precautions ➔Central Nervous System Effects: Generic Indocin (Indomethacin) may aggravate depression or other psychiatric disturbances, epilepsy, and parkinsonism, and should be used with considerable caution in patients with these conditions. If severe Central Nervous System adverse reactions develop, Indomethacin should be discontinued. © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
  16. 16. Generic Indocin Capsules Overdose Symptoms The following symptoms may be observed following Generic Indocin (Inmecin Capsules) overdosage: Nausea, vomiting, intense headache, dizziness, mental confusion, disorientation, or lethargy. There have been reports of paresthesias, numbness, and convulsions. © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
  17. 17. Generic Indocin Capsules Overdose Treatment Treatment is symptomatic and supportive. The stomach should be emptied as quickly as possible if the ingestion is recent. If vomiting has not occurred spontaneously, the patient should be induced to vomit with syrup of ipecac. If the patient is unable to vomit, gastric lavage should be performed. Once the stomach has been emptied, 25 or 50 g of activated charcoal may be given. Depending on the condition of the patient, close medical observation and nursing care may be required. The patient should be followed for several days because gastrointestinal ulceration and hemorrhage have been reported as adverse reactions of indomethacin. Use of antacids may be helpful. © The Swiss Pharmacy, Geneva Switzerland
