    HO Question for SCI-Nurse

    I have been on Didronel for years for my HO. About 6 months ago the Dr. had me stop it, the HO came back worse than before so I went back on the Didronel.

    The Dr. now is prescribing Indomethacin ER to take the place of the Didronel. From what I am reading this drug is used to treat joint pain and swelling caused by arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis.

    Have you ever heard of this drug being used for HO? If not what other drug can be used?

    The reason they want me to stop the Ddronel is because long term it causes rickets.

    Thanks,

    Riz
