2 doctors agree

In brief: Meloxicam

Safer and longer duration of action.
I do no longer use indomethacin!

In brief: Anti-inflammatories

In my experience, they are about equal, and it is probably patient specific.
Some will do better with one medicine, while others not. Indomethacin is often used for gout. Please be careful of stomach problems and your kidney function.
