This isn't a question but more of a notice to everyone to mske sure you ask your doctor questions before getting on this medication. I am anemic and had a blood transfusion & waa on Meloxicam 7.5. My doctor always watched me on it & asked if i was ok. I had gotten in a car accident & that doctor upped the mg to 15 even after i told her aboyt my condition. I took ut for awhile but wasn't feeling right. I went to my doctor & he took me off it right away all together. I feel better. Glad i talked to my doctor ## Hi Tracy, I couldn't agree more with you on the notion that we should be asking our doctors more specific questions relating to whatever medication they intend on prescribing us. Usually patients wait until they experience a problem before bringing somet...

4 Replies RSS
I have been taking Mobic 15MG for 10 days and I can't tell its helping me at all with my inflammation in my back and neck, plus I have a pinched nerve. How long does it take to start working on this? Also I have been taking a prescribed dosage of Potassium Chloride 10MEQ (what it says on the prescription bottle) but been on the Potassium for a few years. Is this a bad combo? Could this be why I'm hurting worse in the shoulders and neck/back of head? Wondering since Mobic increases sodium levels if I should stop taking my Potassium? Please help.. Thanks ## Hello, Tony! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. When is the last time you had a blood test done to check your potassium levels? Those symptoms could be caused by your potassium level being too...

Meloxicam 15 mg pill

How long I can take this without abuse it for anti inflamatory ## Abusing a medication occurs when you keep taking more and more of it to get high, or because you like the effects it has on you, it is not the same as long term use, if you are taking it as prescribed. Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it can cause some problems with long-term regular use, such as stomach irritation, which could turn into ulcers and easier risk of bleeding, so you should consult your doctor on how long it is safe for you to use it. Learn more: Has your doctor prescribed it? ## Hi I am taking meloxicam 15mg once a day for rotator cuff pain. It is not helping very much. I have a partial tear of the supraspinatus tendon.

Melodic am overdose

How long dose it take. For meloxicam to be metabolized out of your system if you have serious side effects, or an overdose? ## Hello, Chrissy! How are you? Generally, it takes about 5 to 6 half-lives for it to be fully processed out and Meloxicam has a half-life of approximately 20 hours for women, so that would be 100 to 120 hours. However, if you had a bad reaction to it, then there should be a gradual improvement over that time period. An overdose, however, might be different, because that could cause liver damage and/or stomach damage. So, that should be checked out by your doctor. What type of reaction did you have to it?

can meloxicam be taken with tramadol
1 Reply RSS
Can meloxicam 15mg once a day be taken with tramadol 50mg? ## Hi noelle.....yes, tramadol and Meloxicam can be taken together. Meloxicam is a NSAID and tramadol is an analgesic pain med. You are safe.....I took both of those meds at one time but Meloxicam does not help me at all. OTC Ibuprofen works the best as a NSAID for me.

I have been on Meloxicam 15mg for about 2 weeks for neck and shoulder pain, believed to be caused from arthritis. It has helped alot compared to the pain I was in before I started it.

Meloxicam long term use

I have been using meloxicam 15 mg once per day for RA for more than six years now. I would like to know whether it is safe to use the drug for such a long duration. I can not stop this drug in the present condition. Any data is available on this subject..? Thanks in advance. ## Hi, Joy! Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so yes there may be some issues caused by long term use, such as stomach ulceration, edema, hypertension, congestive heart failure and liver damage. Is your doctor monitoring you regularly? Usually regular exams and blood tests are the best way to keep an eye on things and head off any problems, before they have a chance to get serious.

How long after taking meloxicam 15 mg could my potassium levels be high in a blood test?
1 Reply RSS
My blood test came back with high levels of potassium. I took Meloxicam, 15mg and am hoping that is the reason. I took it almost a week before the blood test ## Hello, SEC! How are you? How high was it? It really shouldn't cause it to be elevated a week after taking it. Are you on anything else that adds potassium? Do you eat a lot of foods that add it? Are you taking any supplements? Do you drink a lot of fortified drinks, like Gatorade? Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation.

taking half of 15mg meloxicam
2 Replies RSS
I started taking meloxicam 15mg and asked my pharmacist if I can cut it in half because the full 15mg was giving me a side effect of shortness of breath. I been taking half of it for a week now and have no side effects but my back is still in pain. Should I try taking the full 15mg or cut a half of a half in half and take a third of the pill for a week and then start taking the full dose ## Hi anna, With all due respect, these are very personal dosing questions you're asking that are probably best discussed between you and your doctor. However from what I understand, due to safety reasons, it is usually a good idea to start off small and then work your way up to higher doses from there. Some people can make that decision incrementally based off how they feel, but I find that even th...

I also have been dealing with some anxiety but haven't had an attack in a while til last night. I also felt at a point at work like the building I was working in was moving which may have been a dizzy spell.

if i take 15 mg of meloxicam daily can 10 prednisone
1 Reply RSS
I take 15 mg of meloxicam daily for degenerative arthritis. I also have been prescribed 20 mg of prednisone for gout. Can I take the prednisone now if I took my meloxicM 4-1/2 hrs ago? ## Hello, Kanakagurl! How are you? Actually, these medications tend to increase the toxicity of each other and increase the risk of gastrointestinal ulceration. Thus, before mixing them, it would be best to check with your doctor to make sure that it is safe for you to do so. You may need to go off the Meloxicam, while on the Prednisone. Prednisone is a steroid that may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, fluid retention, mood swings, weight changes and elevated blood pressure. Is there anything else I can help with?

how long can you store these in your medicine closet before it is not safe to take them? ## Hello, Basil! How are you? If you are asking about a bathroom medicine chest, they should not be stored there, at all. They should be stored somewhere dark, cool and dry, like a kitchen cabinet or other closet that is away from heat, light and moisture. And they should not be kept past the expiration date on the bottle. All tablets eventually degrade and lost effectiveness. Is there anything else I can help with?
