Abstract:  We evaluated 30 patient charts to determine the effectiveness of a topically applied combination of indomethacin and piroxicam in the treatment of osteopathologic pain of various intensities in hospice patients. The study was designed as a retrospective follow-up to determine whether that combination of drugs resulted in pain reduction. The level of pain experienced by each subject was noted at three intervals after the administration of the topical indomethacin and piroxicam combination in gel form. Patients’ pain scores were reduced by a median of 2 points on a 10-point scale; those results did not reach statistical significance. Twenty-one of the 30 subjects treated with the combination of topically applied indomethacin and piroxicam noted an improvement in their pain score.
