Abstract

In a 6-week open study in 24 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, tolmetin was shown to have analgesic and anti-inflammatory activity at daily doses in excess of 1200 mg per day and produced statistically significant reductions in overall joint pain, walking time and articular index. The drug was well tolerated, but 2 patients were withdrawn because of persistent indigestion and 1 because of an urticarial type rash. In a double-blind crossover comparison against indomethacin and placebo in 22 patients, 1400 mg tolmetin daily showed efficacy comparable with that of 150 mg indomethacin daily. Few side-effects were reported and did not necessitate any patients being withdrawn.
