Mylan Medications - Identify Your Pill
What are Mylan 147 capsules? What kind of medication is the green capsule with MYLAN 147 written on both sides (of halves) of it?
Mylan 147 is Indomethacin 50mg - 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 147 capsule contains 50mg Indomethacin (twice as much as in Mylan 143 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 standard 50mg oral dose of Indomethacin (e.g., one Mylan 147 capsule) proved as effective as 600mg aspirin.
You should consult your doctor before you use Mylan 147, 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 (Indocin) marketed by other manufacturers, too!
