Hi,

The composition of Microcid is Indomethacin 75mg. It is a very commonly used painkiller belonging to the group of NSAIDs. As such, it is a safe drug which if often prescribed for few weeks-months by doctors. No drug is without fee possible side effects. For Indomethacin, side effects which may be uncommonly seen are stomach pain, gastritis, nausea and vomiting. Rarely, few patients experience drowsiness. Overall it is a safe drug and can be used under guidance of a doctor. If she happens to get any of these, do consult your doctor.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
