Mylan Medications - Identify Your Pill
What is a Mylan 143 capsule? What kind of medication is the green (or blue-green) capsule with MYLAN 143 written on both sides (of halves) of it?
Mylan 143 is Indomethacin 25mg - one of NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). It is
used to reduce fever, pain, stiffness, and
swelling mainly in patients with different forms
of arthritis, to reduce fever and pain associated with malignant tumors, and also as a pain-killer for headaches, or migraine, and menstrual cramps. Each Mylan 143 capsule contains 25mg Indomethacin (half the dose of Indomethacin in Mylan 147 capsules).
Indomethacin is a potent drug with many serious side effects and should not be considered an analgesic for minor aches and pains or fever. The drug is more potent than aspirin, but is not a better analgesic. In mild to moderate pain a 25mg oral dose of Indomethacin (e.g., one Mylan 143 capsule) proved as effective as 300mg aspirin.
The medication is available in packs of 25, 100, 300, and 1000.
You should consult your doctor before you use Mylan 143, or any other formulation of Indomethacin (the medication is manufactured under different trade names, including Indocin, Indocid, Indochron E-R, and Indocin-SR).
You benefit directly when Mylan Generics are used in place of name-brand medicines. First, because you will be receiving a high quality medicine, and second, because Mylan Generics are generally more affordable.
However, you may try and order Indomethacin marketed by other manufacturers, too!
