Treatment of acute gouty arthritis with piroxicam.


Piroxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug currently available for the treatment of various rheumatic diseases. Twenty-eight patients with acute gouty arthritis were treated with a single daily dose of 40 mg piroxicam for a period of 5 days. The majority of patients showed rapid improvement with analgesic effectiveness demonstrated 3 hours after first dose administration. No significant side affects were observed. On the basis of this study, piroxicam was found to be an effective medication for the treatment of acute gouty arthritis.
