Generic Clinoril is sold under the name Sulindac tablets and is available in several different strengths. After the patent for Clinoril expired, other companies, such as Mylan Laboratories, Watson Pharmaceuticals, and Mutual Pharmaceuticals, began manufacturing a generic form of the drug. As with the brand-name version, generic Clinoril is commonly used to treat pain and inflammation associated with general muscle pain and conditions like arthritis and gout.

Generic Clinoril: An Overview

Clinoril® (sulindac) is a medication that has been licensed to treat several conditions. Typical Clinoril uses include the following:
  • Pain relief, such as for pain following a procedure, from muscle strain, or caused by inflammation in a tendon (tendonitis) or bursa (bursitis). It can also be used to treat general pain, such as knee pain, back pain, or foot pain.
  • Treatment of arthritis symptoms, including pain, stiffness, and swelling. Clinoril can be used to treat several different types of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and gout. Clinoril does not cure these types of arthritis, however, nor does it change their progression.
Clinoril was originally developed by Merck & Co. The drug has since come off-patent, making it available in a generic form.
