Also Known As: Tolmetin, Tolectin
Tolmetin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug of the arylalkanoic acids. It is used primarily to reduce hormones that cause pain, swelling, tenderness, and stiffness in conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, including juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. In the United States it is marketed as Tolectin and comes as a tablet or capsule.
Tolmetin has been demonstrated to be safe and effective in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthrosis, pain, and ankylosing spondylitis.
