Double dose of 15mg meloxicam same day by accident
2 Replies RSS
I may have taken a double dose of my 15mg Meloxicam by accident, albeit, c. 7 hours apart? What should I do? What are possible consequences? ## Hello, John! How are you? Did you experience any adverse effects? Generally, that wouldn't be enough to cause an overdose, but you may experience more side effects than usual, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. However, it is always best to inform your doctor, so they can check for any possible harm, if they feel it is warranted. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have consulted doctor. He checked my BP , heart beat etc., and found that everything is normal. He advised me to take one tablet for Acidity. I have taken taken light food and one tablet for Acidity.. I h...

Ran out of meloxicam
2 Replies RSS
I ran out of my meloxicam that I take for severe arthritis and degenerative disc disease. Due to being in the process of changing PCPs I am looking for an ITC comparable to the meloxicam or something that might even work better. I am a lot of pain and am having a hard time moving. To further complicate issues I had gastric bypass surgery 9 years ago and am supposed to be limited in taking NSAIDs. I am currently taking 2600mg of Tylenol two to three times a day and roughly 1600mg of Advil with minimal relief. Please advise. ## Unfortunately, there really isn't anything available over the counter that is a strong, which is why Meloxicam is available by prescription only. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this class of medications as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headac...

Meloxicam 15mg and Ibuprofen 800mg
1 Reply RSS
Could meloxicam 15mg be taken alongside 800mg ibuprofen for RA? My Dr prescribed the meloxicam 15mg once daily. I've been taking the ibuprofen 800mg every 4 to 6 hours. Can I take both or is it safer to just take one? ## Since they are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, you should stick with one or the other. According to NIH reports, doubling up increases the risk of blood thinning, bleeding, and stomach ulceration. Have they both been prescribed by the same doctor? Are you on any other medications?

what is better to take - vicoden or co meloxicam 15 mg
2 Replies RSS
Which is better? I don't actually feel a difference taking the meloxicam. ## Hello, Aaron! How are you? These are two very different medications, one is an NSAID and one is a narcotic analgesic. The Meloxicam is just a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, it's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Learn more Meloxicam details here. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach irritation. But Vicodin contains Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone, the latter of which is a narcotic, so it is much more effective at relieving pain. It has to the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Learn more Vicodin details here. As to which is better, it really depends on what you and your ...

Can coffee be drank with meloxicam?

I drink coffee and have been placed on Meloxicam and wonder if I should continue to drink coffee while on the medication? ## Hello, Larry! How are you? As long as your doctor approves, but it may cause more stomach side effects than you would have if you weren't drinking coffee. Meloxicam is classified by the FDA as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory and they are well known to cause stomach irritation and possible ulcers, so the coffee could aggravate that. Other side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I developed epiploic appendagitis the doctor gave me 2 weeks of meloxicam 15mg take one a day , it worked great but as soon as I finished 2 days later started having pain , if I get more how...

Meloxicam long term use
16 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.

can you take more than 15mg meloxicam a day
1 Reply RSS
My primary dr said take one 15mg meloxicam a day. Went to the orthropedic dr. and since my pain is unbearable at night, he told me I could take two 15mg meloxicam a day. Who do I believe? ## The usual maximum dose is 15mgs daily, according to FDA reports. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and an increased risk of bleeding. Taking more can create a risk of your experiencing dangerous gastrointestinal and cardiovascular events. It would be best to speak to your doctor about adding another medication, or switching to something else. Is there anything else I can help with?

meloxicam overdose
1 Reply RSS
What happens if someone takes too much meloxicam? Like more than 30+ mg. What are the side effects and will they be ok? ## This is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so on top of the risk of overdose, taking to much of it could result in stomach ulceration, liver damage, and liver failure, according to the NIH. If you know someone has done so, it is best to get them medical attention, as soon as possible. Is there anything else I can help with?

Meloxicam side effects concerns
5 Replies RSS
I started taking Meloxicam (15 mg) ten days ago for spondyloarthritis. I few days ago, I started having headaches and tension in my neck/shoulders. I read that you're not supposed to take iboprofen or other NSAIDS with it, so I took Tylenol instead to get rid of the headache, which worked. I also noticed that I was having bloating, belching, loose stools/diarrhea, and weight gain, despite diet and exercise. In fact, while I was doing my walking yesterday (roughly 3 miles or so in an air conditioned mall), I started feeling a little lightheaded and getting winded easier than I should have. Afterwards, on my way home, I stopped by the grocery store and was still feeling a little strange and when I reached the blood pressure machine I decided to check mine. It was high for me: 161/90+ ...

Apo-Meloxicam efficacy
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking Apo-meloxicam since Tuesday. I have taken 4 pills for inflammation in my lower back and right leg. Am a little concerned as to why the pain is not going away? How long before the pill starts to work? ## Meloxicam is just a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so while it can help with some minor pain, fever, and swelling, it will not alleviate pain as well as an opiate would. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. You may need a stronger pain reliever. Have you informed your doctor?

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).

drug interactions with meloxicam
2 Replies RSS
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? ## Marijuana and effexor have a bad reaction together. They both bump serotonin levels up and the combo of them can range from nausea to seizures. I know this from my d...

I take high BP medicine and also acid reflux medicine and low dose asprin everyday. My doctor presribed 7.5MG of Meloxicam for arthritis. I have had several mini-strokes that affects my speech and I also break out when I take aleve, is this safe to take? ## Hello, Sheryl! How are you doing? I am very sorry about your various health issues. Was it prescribed by your PCP? If so, I'd suggest not taking it, until you check with whatever other doctor you see for your strokes. It can cause blood thinning, according to the FDA, so it may be contraindicated with your other medications. It can also cause elevated blood pressure, as a side effect. It would be best to be cautious.
