There are a number of different medications used to treat gout. Some of them are used to reduce the inflammation and pain caused by gout, and others are used to prevent gout from recurring once it has been effectively treated.
Once gout has been diagnosed, high doses of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, are used to reduce swelling and pain in the joint. The dose is usually reduced over the course of a couple of weeks. Over-the-counter examples of these are ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve). Others require a prescription, such as celecoxib (Celebrex) and indomethacin (Indocin). Aspirin is not recommended as a gout medication.Your doctor should be advised if you have ever been diagnosed with peptic ulcer disease, intestinal bleeding or if your kidneys are not functioning properly. Side effects of these drugs may include upset stomach, bleeding ulcers, and decreased kidney function.
If a patient is not a good candidate for NSAIDs, doctors may also use corticosteroids to treat the red, hot, and swollen joints caused by gout. An example is prednisone (Meticorten). When given orally, corticosteroids are started in high doses and then gradually reduced over the course of a couple of weeks. If not taken exactly as prescribed, complications, such as mood issues, high blood pressure, and glucose control in diabetic patients, can arise. Corticosteroids can also be injected directly into the affected joint, injected into a muscle or given via intravenous therapy.
