how long can you take meloxicam
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.

round pill m66
Can this pill be used for vaginal infection ## Hello, Chica! How are you? A round, yellowish tablet with an M over 66 on one side contains 7.5mgs of Meloxicam, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so no, it will not treat an infection. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. An infection requires an antibiotic, unless it's a yeast infection, in which case you need an antifungal. Was this prescribed for you?

Meloxicam 15 mg and benedryl
I would like to know if there is any interactions between meloxicam 15 mg and benedryl? ## Hello, Joan! How are you? I didn't find any interactions listed, but you should always double check such information to be certain. The Meloxicam is a NSAID and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. Benadryl is an antihistamine and may cause side effects, such as drowsiness, dizziness and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Yes. I am also tasking ciprofloxacin 500 mg , is there any interactions taking the meloxicam 15mg with it ## I would like to know if there is an interaction between meloxicam 15mg and ciprofloxacin 500mg?

Coxflam & effects to heart
I have acute Sciatica & also have a heart condition. Will Coxflan relieve the Sciatica pain & Will there be any problem with my heart condition. I am 71 & battling with the back & leg pain Will there thanks john ## Coxflam contains the active ingredient Meloxicam, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and no, these are not usually given to heart patients, because of the dangers that they can present to someone that has an existing heart condition. NSAID can cause fluid retention, which can result in complications, such as congestive heart failure. In addition, congestive heart failure has been induced by large doses and long-term use of some NSAID medications. My doctor has instructed me to stay away from all of them and said the only thing I should use is Acetaminop...

taking half of 15mg meloxicam
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...

meloxicam 7 5 tab zyd what is it for
Is there a difference between 7.5 MG Tab zyd And just 7.5 MG? ## Hi Teresa, Based on my research, "zyd" apparently stands for the manufacturer (Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA) and should correspond with a National Drug Code of 68382-050. I guess on some labels pharmacies feel the need to include the name/abbreviation of the company who makes it, as a secondary means of reference.. Especially since so many people are now coming to terms with the fact that certain manufacturers produce better quality meds than others. I hope this info helps!

twisted ankle minor
have sprained my ankle and need to relieve pain able to walk but it aches may I take zerodol tablet to relieve pain or meloxicam tablets please advise ## Hi Riyaz, sorry to hear about your sprained ankle. Regarding your question on which one to take... both Meloxicam and Zerodol are classified as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; which are widely used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. Based off that information you could probably get by using either one to help provide at least some amount relief from the pain. However because these are prescription meds, I'd still recommend talking with your doctor first just to play it safe. Hope this helps!

meloxicam 15 mg tabs will it show up on a drug test
will it show up on a drug test?thank you ## only the drugs a drug test is testing for can show up - eg marijuana, cocaine. it is unlikely a drug like Meloxicam, used for arthritis, would show. however, if it is being abused, the side effects may signal an alarm to someone that something is not right. ## No, it will not. Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. ## Anybody gaining weight from taking this Mobic 15mg? ## I have a drug test for the military in about two weeks, I take my boyfriends meloxicam for my back at work because I am a server and I never sit down really unless its dead shift. Will it show up on a military blood drug test? PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE! ## All I've ever know it showing up for is benzodiazepine once in a while

meloxicam works the day you take it
meloxicam is taken instead of advil. it is used like advil or tylenol or alieve. it should work the day you take it. it should not take days or weeks fr you to notice a difference in pain levels. i take it daily along with my other pain medications,, and if i forget it the narcotic meds do not even work as well. they are both necessary ## Hello, Allison! How are you? Thank you for your post. You are correct, traditional analgesics, including NSAIDs, such as Meloxicam do work as soon as you take them, they don't require a certain period of time to reach their full efficacy level, which is why they are often prescribed to be taken as needed. And the reason narcotics don't seem to work as well without it, is because NSAIDs and Acetaminophen potentiate the action of narcotics, so it...

side effects of coxflam
I started with Coxflam, described by my doctor, this morning for pain in my hip. Tonight I discover that my face and neck is red and felt swollen. I also have a head acke. I am on cronic medicine for high blood presure. Is this symptoms from the Coxflam? ## Hello, Purdy! How are you? The Coxflam contains Meloxicam, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and this class of medications is usually contraindicated with chronic high blood pressure, because it can cause blood pressure elevations. Was it prescribed by the same doctor that treats for you for your hypertension?

Afraid to start long term use of Meloxicam, or any NSAID for chronic body pain and back pain.
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...

expiration date 10/13 meloxicam
Meloxicam 7.5mg expired 10/13 is it ok to take. Thank you ## Hi Babe! Medications can b expired for years and still b safe 2 take. They may lose their potency, but r safe. ## @Babe, "Most" medications (aside from tetracycline) are still considered safe to take even up to 15 years beyond the expiration date. Harvard Medical School wrote an article about this too, discussing how the US military drew that conclusion after examining stockpiles of old medication. They didn't list the names of any particular drugs, so unfortunately I don't know which medications were used in the study. However, I'd imagine something like Meloxicam with proposed analgesic and fever reducing effects, to be a drug of interest upon making such claims. Would you say was it stored properly all t...
