Which NSAID for gout attack - my experience
Having my worst ever gout attack to the big toe (after 22 years of on an off gout) that has been going on for 12 days. Tried my usual Naproxen 500 mg, 2x per day without significant results (usually this works after 3-4 days). My Doc suggested switching to Indomethacin 75 mg 2x per day. Tried Indomethacin for 2 days and gout continued to get worse. Went back to Naproxen and getting some minor improvement after 12 days, but still swollen and painful. I also take ProBenecid 500 mg 1x daily which up until recently has generally kept the gout at bay. Thanks to this web-site, I've just tried Apple-Cider-Vinegar, fingers crossed and hoping the gout will abate as I'm at my wits end. I'm sure some of you can relate.
