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...

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
1 Reply RSS
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 ...

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...

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?

How long I can take this without abuse it for anti inflamatory ## Abusing a medication occurs when you keep taking more and more of it to get high, or because you like the effects it has on you, it is not the same as long term use, if you are taking it as prescribed. Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and it can cause some problems with long-term regular use, such as stomach irritation, which could turn into ulcers and easier risk of bleeding, so you should consult your doctor on how long it is safe for you to use it.

Melodic am overdose

How long dose it take. For meloxicam to be metabolized out of your system if you have serious side effects, or an overdose? ## Hello, Chrissy! How are you? Generally, it takes about 5 to 6 half-lives for it to be fully processed out and Meloxicam has a half-life of approximately 20 hours for women, so that would be 100 to 120 hours. However, if you had a bad reaction to it, then there should be a gradual improvement over that time period. An overdose, however, might be different, because that could cause liver damage and/or stomach damage. So, that should be checked out by your doctor. What type of reaction did you have to it?
