Generic Indocin 50mg works by blocking the action of a substance in the body
called cyclo-oxygenase (COX). Cyclo-oxygenase is involved in the
production of various chemicals in the body, some of which are known as
prostaglandins. Prostaglandins are produced by the body in response to
injury and certain diseases and conditions, and cause pain, swelling and
inflammation. Generic Indocin 50mg blocks the production of these prostaglandins
and is therefore effective at reducing inflammation and pain.
