2 Replies RSS
Just started meloxicam for arthitis. Have history of cancer, crohns desease, fybromyalgia and side effects from steroids being migrains. My doctor felt this would be a good med for my arthitis. Has anyone had history of migrains with this. I had a migrain issue that lasted for 11 days can this be from this? It has been helping with inflamation. Which is a big plus. I'm hoping this is a fluke but i m nervous abut starting up on it again? I do have a history of migrains prior to this med. Just wondering if this trigerd it?

meloxicam 15 mg celecoxib 200 mg

can meloxicam be taken with celecoxib ? ## Hi John, According to umm.edu's drug interaction checker, there are no interactions listed between Celecoxib and Meloxicam. This is not to say that no interactions exist period, but based on these findings I don't see any reason why you couldn't take them together unless instructed otherwise by your prescribing doctor. Also, as long as it was the same doctor who prescribed both meds, I highly doubt he/she would give you anything that couldn't be taken at the same time or at least within the same day, for safety reasons. They have to watch their own back just as much for risk of litigation if they ever did prescribe two contradicting drugs. I hope this helps!

if i take 15 mg of meloxicam daily can 10 prednisone
2 Replies 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? ## I just took my last dose of medrol this morning. It has done nothing for my...

Danger of Over dose on Meloxicam: I was given sample bottle of Meloxicam 15 mgs, to take "as necessary per route" as instruction said, so I took it TWICE a day, at morning and at night. Some of my blood word result levels are high and I am wondering if this overdose of Meloxicam has something to do with these high level results?! ## Hello, Barbara! How are you? What blood results were high? I'm sorry, but I'm unable to help you, without more information. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! Meloxicam is usually dosed just once a day in a maximum of 15mgs. The FDA classifies it as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's most commonly used to treat pain, fever and swelling.

which is stronger hydrocode or meloxicam
1 Reply 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.

Meloxicam long term use
4 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...

Use of Meloxicam infrequently

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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Your response made me feel even better! Tx. ## You are very welcome! I'm glad I was able to help. Please have a wonderful new year! ## Siatic pain...prescribed meloxicam. 15mg .afraid to take it. Side effects are frightening

Hi my doctor prescribed meloxicam 15 mg for me however he had prescribed 7.5 in the past so I take the low dose instead however I still have pain in my hip can I take a OTC pain pill as we'll. ## Hello, Cat! How are you? Meloxicam is a pretty potent NSAID, so it would be best not to combine it with anything else, without your doctor's permission. Have you tried taking the 15mg he has prescribed, now? That might help you pain more adequately. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. ## Hello , hope all is well.

I've been on Mobic for three days now,how long will it take for me to see if it's working. I have severe back problems. ## Hello, Patty! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. The FDA classifies this as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so similar to Advil or Motrin, it should start to have some effect within 15 to 20 minutes of taking it, though it may take about 4 weeks, before it reaches its full level of efficacy in your body. Have you gotten any pain relief, at all, from it? Typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation.

meloxicam & Xljanz
1 Reply RSS
My doctor has prescribed Meloxicam & Xljanz. Are they safe taken together? ## Hi pinnie, According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, there are no drug interactions listed between Meloxicam and Xeljanz (tofacitinib citrate). Based off this information alone, I wouldn't have any reason to believe that you couldn't take the two together... especially since your doctor prescribed them both to you at the same time. I can't blame you though for being extra cautious, as there have been who knows how many instances where doctors mistakenly prescribe two drugs that interact with one another. Hope this helps!

meloxicam 15 mg Did my Dr make the right call
4 Replies RSS
I've been taking Meloxicam for about three days now, for wrist pain. I had an MRI and it showed two small cysts in my wrist. The pain is still there, and it's nearly unbearable since I work in production. Should I ask my Dr. For something else, or continue to take it and hope for the best? I've read about melocxicam and it seems to work for people with arthritis, but I have cysts. Did my Dr. Make the right call? ## Hello, Casey! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. Do you know what type of cysts they are? Is this the only thing your doctor prescribe? Usually, an antibiotic and/or a steroid are used for cysts, to try to reduce their size and get them to go away. Meloxicam is listed by the FDA as an NSAID, it is used to treat pain, fever and swellin...

drug interactions with meloxicam

would it be dangerous if I take my medical marijuana while on a meloxicam prescription? ## Hello, Rummpa! How are you? No, marijuana has not been known to cause any problems or interactions with any prescription medications, so far. That's why so many doctors are in favor of its use. However, combined with the side effects of the Meloxicam, which is classified by the FDA as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, you may experience more dizziness, drowsiness and dry mouth than usual. Other Meloxicam side effects may include headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

meloxicam and distended abdomen

I just started taking meloxicam. My stomach has become extended quite a bit. In my research I have found that patients who have bipolar disorder (like me) have the problem of distended abdomen. The med is taking the edge off my fibro pain, and I want to keep taking it, however, I am uncomfortable and my pants are tight. Is there any treatment for this problem? If I drink more water, will these help? ## Hello, basil46! How are you? Meloxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, so it can cause some excess stomach acid, that may contribute to bloating, but there is also a risk of stomach ulceration, so you should have this checked out by your doctor. According to the FDA, other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, increased risk of bleeding and headache. Your doctor might also be ...
