In brief: Indometh for gout

While the combination of nsaids with Misoprostol can help relieve the inflammation caused by arthritis one should consult with their doctor about the best nsaid.
This is because long term use of nsaid's also carry potential risks for renal, cardiac and GI issues. Cox 2 inhibitors have also been found effective for arthritis and now diclofenac which is an NSAID is available as a gel and a patc.

In brief: Sure.

The combination of NSAID and Misoprostol as a gastric protectant is a great idea to manage arthritis pain while minimizing the risk for gastritis/ulcers.
