I have R A and been taking maloxicam 15mg for 7 months. My flare ups are worse now. My DR won't change my medecation. Is there something else I can go to him with? ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? What type of doctor are you seeing? I think a specialist would be the best bet to get the help you need. ## I am seeing an RA doctor ## I have degenerative disk disease and herniated disks in my spine. The meloxicam did nothing for me but ny doctor gave me nabumetone 750mg. Pronounced na beam a tone. You take it twice a day and it helps 10 times better than the meloxicam for me. You may want to ask your doctor if you can try it.

meloxicam and outpatient surgery

How long will meloxicam remain in my system? I am having an outpatient surgery on Monday for my lower back, 20 min in and out! I took a meloxicam Friday! ## Hello, Leigh! How are you? It is actually recommended that you stop taking it 7 days, before surgery. It would be best to inform your doctor that you've taken it, as you may need to reschedule the procedure. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

yellow round pill 5 on one side blank the other
1 Reply RSS
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. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything I can help with?

Meloxicam long term use
8 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...

meloxicam 7.5 mg
1 Reply RSS
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?

Meloxicam 7.5 mg and Panamax
1 Reply RSS
Today took 2 7.5 mg meloxicam by mistake for arthritic neck, at lunchtime. 3rd day. I am also taking 1 Panamax every 4 hours as I'm waiting to see a dentist for an aching tooth. Is this safe? ## Hello, Susan! How are you? That isn't necessarily a dangerous dose, but it does increase the risk of side effects, which the U.S. FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, bleeding and stomach irritation. However, you should inform your doctor as higher doses also increase the risk of liver damage. Panamax is classified as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. They can be taken together, as long as your doctor or dentist approve, though that may al...

Meloxicam still effective
1 Reply RSS
My Meloxicam expired 2 year's ago. I work in a pharmacy and know how to store it, so my question is can I take it again? I've been having issues with my elbow and ibuprofen isn't helping. Thank you ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? It does not become dangerous, once expired, but medications do slowly lose effectiveness over time. More so, if they are exposed to the elements that cause degradation, such as heat, light and moisture. Your doctor may okay you taking it, even though it's expired, but ideally it would be best to obtain a new prescription. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Have you had your elbow checked out? That would be the best thing to do, so you can disco...

can i take meloxicam with tramadol
2 Replies RSS
I. Need to slowly get off tramadol can I take meloxicam where I won't have withdrawals ## Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it will not prevent opiate withdrawals. It may help with some of the pain you may experience as a rebound effect, but it won't do much more than that. Its side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding. How long have you been taking it and how much do you take? ## 7,5 meloxicam and 50 tramadol for about one and a half months

Meloxicam and lab work
1 Reply RSS
I was just prescribed 15mg of Meloxicam to start taking. I had been taking 600-800mg of Ibuprofen & was told it was safer, along with a low dose of oxycodeine which I'm really trying to do without. I'm recovering from a shoulder replacement & also have arthritis in other shoulder. I'm very much the nervous type when it comes to drugs. How often should I request blood work? ## There is no set schedule, but if you're taking it regularly, most doctors will check your liver levels every 3 to 4 months to be careful. The typical side effects of Meloxicam, as reported by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation.

Since they are all nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, you should be able to just make a smooth transition by replacing the Meloxicam with one of the others, when it's time to take your next dose, as long as your doctor approves. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach pain. Is there anything else I can help with?
