Indocin, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), is commonly used to treat shoulder pain and symptoms of conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and gout. The medicine is thought to work by inhibiting the action of certain hormones, which help reduce pain, inflammation, and joint swelling. Indocin comes in three forms (capsules, oral suspension, and suppositories). Common side effects include headache, nausea, dizziness, and heartburn.
