I am looking for a doctor in virginia who will take self pay patients and who is not against opioid medications. I'm currently on Amatriptalin Tizanidin and Meloxicam (which is killing my stomach due to many years of nsaid). These medications help but they are not enough. I'm in physical therapy and the pain is preventing me any my therapist from being able to progress in my therapy. I live in the Charlottesville area and every doctor has gone complete opioid prohibition. I just need a little more help with my pain so that I can progress in my therapy. I am willing to travel far. If anyone knows of any doctor in Virginia who may be willing to help, please let me know and thank you in advance.

Meloxicam Information

I am taking Meloxicam 15 mg for my Carpel Tunnel, but it takes forever to work. Can I double up on the dosage? ## Hello, Kim! How are you? I'm sorry that you're in pain. The FDA classifies Meloxicam as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, which means that there is some risk of stomach ulceration, bleeding and liver damage, especially with higher doses, thus, it would be best not to raise your dosage, unless your doctor approves. Is there anything else I can help with? ## No, I thank you for your advice and help. Besides Meloxicam is there any medication that I can use for my Carpel Tunnel? ## Can Meloxicam be used for sore muscles? Worked out for the first time in a while and have severe muscle soreness.

Meloxicam side effects and concerns
8 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+ ...

Meloxicam expiration date help
1 Reply RSS
I have 3 bottles of Meloxicam that have never been opened. They expired in 2016 and January 2017. Are they still good? ## Are they in pharmacy dispensed bottles, or the original factory sealed bottles? When they are place in a pharmacy sealed bottle, they are usually good for one year from the date you receive them, according to FDA directions, though while recently talking to a doctor about it, she informed me that the U.S. is the only country that requires an expiration date, most of them are good for many, many years. If they are in the original factory sealed containers, they are usually good for 4 to 5 years, under FDA law.

i found some pills in my room that are small, white, and oval with the number 15 on one side and they are blank on the other side. Please help me figure this out.
