How to quickly get rid of gout?

Indomethacin. I prescribe a drug called Indocin (indomethacin) for my patients. If this is first time you have had gout the pain can ease up in about 20 minutes after taking the medication. Ice can help reduce the pain, do not use heat as this will cause additional pain and swelling. If you have had gout many times it may take a much longer time to get rid of the pain and swelling.
