When discontinuing the use of suppository indomethacin after 4 yrs at 200mg/day, will I re-lose my weight and water retention?

When discontinuing the use of suppository indomethacin after 4 yrs at 200mg/day, will I re-lose my weight and water retention?

Possibly: While I don't know why you were using indomethacin suppositories for 4 years, I would think moving away from that is a good idea. Great! Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such a indomethacin do cause fluid retention and I think it is very possible you will lose a little weight from fluid losses. I would be surprised if it were more than 2-4 pounds, though. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Is there a good OTC suppository i can give my 7 year old? He can't keep anything down.

Not really: The only nonprescription nausea meds available can cause more side effects in kids. The best nausea med for kids is ondansetron, a prescription that dissolves under the tongue with only very rare side effects. Most kids will stop vomiting if they are given just a couple ounces of clear fluid every 20-30 minutes. No food until vomiting stops for at least 8-12 hours. If not working seek urgent care. ...Read more
