Indomethacin-responsive headache syndromes
Indomethacin elicits a prompt and complete response in certain primary headache disorders. Trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias and Valsalva-induced headaches are among the most responsive. It inhibits both cyclooxygenase 1 and cyclooxygenase 2 and leukocyte activity, decreases cerebral blood flow and CSF pressure, and has antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties.
