Meloxicam long term use
9 Replies RSS
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.

Hello, I am a new meloxicam user - pinched torn meniscus and knee arthritis. I felt pain relief the first day I took it - yippee. Knee replacement has been suggested but since I feel a huge improvement on the med (no to little pain, no limp, can bend without pain) thinking I can postpone surgery. Can you tell me an estimate of long I can expect benefit from 15 mg 1 per day? ## Hello, Anna! How are you? There is really no definitive time frame I can give you.

which is stronger hydrocode or meloxicam
3 Replies RSS
I have hydrocodone & meloxicam for TV my shoulder,no i got it operated on,and they told me to take either or,can you tell me which is stronger? ## Hello, Kathy! How are you? Hydrocodone is stronger, since is classified by the FDA as being a narcotic analgesic, which has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Meloxicam, however, is just a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can you take meloxicam and pill oxdonconton together. ## Can you take meloxicam and pill oxycodone together.

I'd bought Meloxicam 7.5mg on Dec.15-2014. I would like to know if there is no harm to use it now? Thanks for any help. My concern is to know the expiration date of pills sold in 2014. ## Sorry to not reply from since because I'm not in good shape.

2 Replies RSS
I severely damaged my lower back this morning. I have had back pain for some years now. I went and saw my Dr today who prescribed me Endone and Meloxicam 15mg, my Dr is aware that i suffer stomach pain when i take anti inflammatory medication. He did advise me that these tablets are okay to take. I am unsure what to do as I do have stomach ulcers, and I need the inflammation in my back to go away. ## Hello, Debbie! How are you? Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it can cause stomach irritation and ulceration, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. Thus, it may be best to take it with an antacid to protect your stomach, if your doctor approves of your doing so.

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!

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.

Use of Meloxicam infrequently
5 Replies RSS
I only take Meloxicam when I feel that I need it. Most times I take the 15mg tablet once a week. Does that make my exposure to long term side effects less? ## Hello, Bill! How are you? According to the FDA, yes it would. Long-term side effect risks are usually based on someone taking it regularly for a long period of time, not occasional use. Typical side effects for Meloxicam may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation.

Effects of long term use of Meloxicam
2 Replies RSS
I"m a 70 year old female. Very active. Runner, short triathlons, lift weights and otherwise have a very active (hard working) lifestyle. I have been taking 15mg. Meloxicam tablet on average about two per week for about 6 years. Of course, I"m concerned about the side effects I"ve read about for long term use. Does taking them only two per week mitigate these side effects even if I"ve been taking them for a long period of time? ## Hello, Judy! How are you? There is still some slight risk, but most of what you read about are effects from daily long-term use, not occasional. That's why others, such as Ibuprofen are available over the counter. The most common include liver damage, stomach damage, increased risk of bleeding and stomach ulceration. Is there anything else I...

I have one like that and it is a 7.5 milligram meloxicam which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory an analgesic works very well for joint pain and fever reducer but only take one a day. It does take a little time it has to build up in the blood system and you have to be very consistent taking it at the same time each day. ## Meloxicam works best if taken regularly and around the same time each day, but it will still have some effect, even if taken occasionally.

meloxicam 7.5 mg

I'm taking meloxicam 7.5 mg and I have no refills. I'm having problems with night pain and wanted to take aleve pm. I took the last meloxicam about 12 hours ago. Could I take the aleve or do I need to wait for the meloxicam to leave my system completely? ## Hello, Liz! How are you? They are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, so unless your doctor instructs otherwise, you can usually just switch smoothly from one to the other. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. With the added ingredient in the Aleve PM, you may also experience dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?
