Sulindac is a generic drug still sold under the brand name Clinoril by Merck, Inc. This prescription anti-inflammatory medication is used to treat osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, acute painful shoulder, and acute gouty arthritis. Sulindac might cause potentially deadly skin side effects.
A member of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) class, scientists believe sulindac works by inhibiting the enzyme “cyclooxygenase-2” (COX-2), which helps create the lipid (fat cell) “prostaglandin.” This lipid regulates pain sensation in people’s bodies. By reducing its presence, people feel less pain from various symptoms.
