    • Etodolac is in a class of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Etodolac works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body.
    • Etodolac is used to reduce pain, inflammation, and stiffness caused by many conditions, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and injury.

    It's not a pain med, like Lortab or any of those, there is no hydrocodone in it.

    The brand name is Lodine. Geez, that's ANOTHER one I've tried in the past.

    There's a good site I use to check out meds, it's called rx list........you can insert the proper dots and coms to find it.[This Message was Edited on 03/09/2003]
