white pill 158 C
1 Reply RSS
I'm looking at a pill that has 158 on one side and a C on the other side. What is this? ## This tablet is manufactured by Cipla USA and they list it as containing 7.5mgs of Meloxicam which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to pain, fever, and swelling. The FDA lists the typical side effects possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Meloxicam caused anxiety and panic attack
2 Replies RSS
Hi, I was prescribed meloxicam for my tailbone pain. I took one 7.5mg dose and that gave me the worst panic attack. I am not taking it anymore but i still feel very anxious and I am not myself anymore. It has been 5 days since i took the dose. Will this take time to go away? Do I need any other treatments for these side effects? ## It has been known to cause anxiety/panic attacks, in some people that take it, according to FDA reports, but it is very rare. It is also very unusual for it to linger that long after having taken just one dose. Its other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Have things improved, yet? Are you on any other medications? ## It's a lot better now but I still have anxiety ...

Afraid to start long term use of Meloxicam, or any NSAID for chronic body pain and back pain.
5 Replies RSS
I have recently quit taking pain meds that I have taken for the past ten years. I was up to 8 Vicoprofen and 4 Tramadol every day. I was so tired of getting up and felling horrible from the toxins in the opoides that I just don't want to do it anymore. However, now I have to deal with how painful it is without the meds and how tired I am. I shower every morning and try to take a 2 mile walk each day, but I am too tired and sore to keep it up. I was hoping a good NSAID would help me, but am so afraid it will have severe physical affects...possibly non-reversible. The side effects on the bottle are nothing compared to the research I have found on the computer. I watched my mother go thru many months of daily dialysis and then eventually chose to quit and she passed away by drowning in...

Is meloxicam commonly abused
2 Replies RSS
My daughter has been stealing my meds (meloxicam) and I was wondering is she addicted or is the medication getting her high to where she keeps stealing them? ## No, this is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it is not commonly abused, since it doesn't cause the effects of opiates, or stimulants. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. However, if it is making her dizzy, she might think that she's getting high from it. Have you spoken to her about it? ## My son is also taking the same thing I an underhanded method he has acquired them. He is 16 . This couldn't be just for pain he would ask me for something. I am also concerned.

Meloxicam for RA 5+ years ago-now told I do not have
Post a Reply
My doctor diagnosed me with RA October 2011 and prescribed Meloxicam 15mg. I asked for the bloodwork to show my pain doctor and was told by his PA that my bloodwork does not show I have RA. I am in complete shock!!! 1st, why would he do this and 2nd, will taking this for all these years without having RA cause issues? I am having bouts of diarrhea and just had a colonoscopy and an upper GI is scheduled next month. I have extreme shortness of breath but doctor says it is my nerves & there is nothing wrong with me although I pulled reports from where I get all my tests and it shows emphysema, COPD, degenerative disc disease, bone spurs, mild scoliosis and endobronchial mucous plugs in both lungs. I was hospitalized in 2013 with COPD and he says it was asthmatic bronchitis. I just found o

Is Meloxicam Gluten Free
15 Replies RSS
I have been taking meloxicam for 1 1/2 weeks and I am experiencing celiac symptoms. I would like to know if meloxicam is gluten free ## Meloxicam is actually a generic medication, the name brand for it would be Mobic and, since it is a generic, it is manufactured by several different companies. Thus, I can't tell you anything about the inactive ingredients without more information from you, such as the markings on the tablet, or the name of the manufacturer. Can you please post back with this information? ## I would like to know if gluten is in my meloxicam. It's an oblong light yellow pill with a 15 stamped on it. I'm expericening floating, constipation, and stomach pains. ## Is taking muscle relaxers 500mg and meloxicams 7.5mg and buspirone 10mgs okay to take all in the mo...

How long can you take meloxicam safely?
4 Replies RSS
I have osteoarthritis in my spine, knees and hips and have recently developed severe pain in both arms, extending to the fingers on my right hand, worse on getting out of bed in the morning. I was taking Panadol Osteo two three times a day which didn't really help much so my doctor prescribed Mobic. It helps a lot but not completely so am wondering if I should keep taking Panadol Osteo as well as Mobic? Also, is it necessary to have a few days break from Mobic every so often? I take Sotalol for AF, Perindopril for blood pressure, Apixaban as a blood thinner and Carbimazole for hyperthyroidism. I have asked my doctor and pharmacist these questions but am still confused as to what I should safely do even though I have read all the information available. ## Hello, Janice! How are you? ...

Effects of long term use of Meloxicam
3 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...

can you take two meloxicams and be okay
2 Replies RSS
What would happen if you took two or three meloxicams. It sounds as if it would be okay if they work like advil? ## No, it wouldn't be okay. They are much stronger than Advil and even when it comes to Advil, there's a limited number of those that you can safely take at one time. Both Advil and Meloxicam are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories and though they may seem harmless, since some are available over the counter, they aren't. There are some pretty big possible risks associated with taking them, such as internal bleeding, stomach ulceration and liver damage or failure. Learn more Meloxicam details here. And just like any other drug, an overdose could be fatal, so please do not exceed the recommended use amounts or the prescribed dosage. Is there anything else I can help wi...

Meloxicam long term use
19 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. Learn more Meloxicam details here. ## I have been on Meloxicam for nearly 12 years, refilled by several doctors which I hav...

How Long Can I Take Meloxicam Safely
3 Replies RSS
I have taken Meloxicam for two years and am worried about long lasting effects from long term use. Any info you can share with me? ## Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so long term use of it may cause damage to your stomach and/or your liver. Learn more Meloxicam details here. They've also been known to cause fluid retention and elevated blood pressure with long-term use. Do you see your doctor regularly? Do they do blood tests, such as a liver panel? ## I had taken meloxicam for about a year and wow i sure got relief of my osteoarthritis (severe all joints affected), also diagnosed with fibromylgia, I began to have stomach burning ...then ulcer..then bleeding ulcer and the lining to my stomach is in bad shape.

meloxicam with tylenol 3
1 Reply RSS
I hurt my knee and I just started taking meloxicam. The doctor said to take extra strength Tylenol. I have some Tylenol 3 that I had for my jaw. Can I take it with meloxicam? ## Tylenol 3 contains Codeine, alone with Acetaminophen, according the FDA lists. Thus it would be best not to take it, unless your doctor instructs you to do so. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Is the Meloxicam helping? What type of knee injury did you experience?

I've took meloxicam for five days for a toothache and discontinued use two days ago I'm having pain again is it ok to take a ibuprofen ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? It should be fine, as long as your prescriber approves. It's usually taking them at the same time, together, that may cause problems, according to the NIH, such as liver damage, liver failure, increased risk of bleeding, stomach irritation, and stomach ulceration. When are you having the tooth fixed? ## I just started taking meloxicam 15mg daily (supposed to be for a month for plantar fasciatis on both heels). The doctor specifically told me to stop taking ibuprofen, naproxen or any other NSAID. He said I can take tylenol. So, I would check with the doctor who prescribed the meloxicam.

Meloxicam overdose?

I accidentally took 2 15mg tabs of Meloxicam tonight. I don't feel bad or anything unusual, do I need to go to the e.r.? ## Unless you experience an allergic reaction, or sudden bleeding, that would usually not be something to go to the ER for, according to NIH reports, but it is always best to double check with your doctor to be sure. Are you on any other medications? Did you experience any adverse effects?

I take 7.5 mg. my hands still hurt and are swollen. 2nd day to take them. I scraped glue off a floor for several days and night and my hands and fingers are so swollen and very painful . ## Merry Christmas Joyce, Sorry to hear about the pain in your hands and fingers. Scraping glue off a floor for several days/nights sounds like it would do that to just about anyone though. But I hope you're able to find some level of relief from taking the meloxicam. Based on your description, my guess is that it may be a while before the swelling subsides. However it seems like you're using the right preventative measures w/ a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug to keep it from getting any worse. Have you also considered looking into supplements like Turmeric/Curcumin as a secondary option for...
