expiration date 10/13 meloxicam
5 Replies RSS
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...

Meloxicam and lab work
Post a Reply
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?

meloxicam 7.5 mg and prednisone 20 mg

how long can you store these in your medicine closet before it is not safe to take them? ## Hello, Basil! How are you? If you are asking about a bathroom medicine chest, they should not be stored there, at all. They should be stored somewhere dark, cool and dry, like a kitchen cabinet or other closet that is away from heat, light and moisture. And they should not be kept past the expiration date on the bottle. All tablets eventually degrade and lost effectiveness. Is there anything else I can help with? ## will prednisone help my sinus post nasel driping down my throat .

I have been taking meloxicam for 1 1/2 weeks and I am experiencing celiac symptoms. I would like to know if meloxicam is gluten free ## Meloxicam is actually a generic medication, the name brand for it would be Mobic and, since it is a generic, it is manufactured by several different companies.

pain medicine in sioux falls, sd
1 Reply RSS
I am looking for a doctor in sioux falls, sd that's not "afraid" to prescribe narcotic pain meds. I've had severe back pain for years, have been through chiropractors, physical therapy, injections, nothing helped. I feel like I just had to learn to live with the pain. Since having 2 kids, the pain has increased immensely, but my current Doc will not give me anything that helps. I have tried meloxicam, gabepentin, tramadol (which I found I was allergic to, though it did help slightly), and feel I am about to overdose on naproxen and tylenol, because they are all I have access to and though they don't help, I keep hoping they may if I take enough. I need something to help me function normally so that I can be a good mother. I hate just dealing with the pain. Thanks in ...

I took 15 mg of meloxicam 17 hours ago for arthritis in my knee it now very painful and swollen can I take one Motrin now ## Hello, Teri! How are you? No, you shouldn't take Motrin with the Mobic, because they are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories that treat the same conditions and, as listed by the FDA, they could cause some serious side effects, such as stomach ulceration, liver damage, liver failure and increased risk of bleeding. If the Meloxicam isn't helping, it would be best to consult your doctor to see what your other options might be. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you Verwon for your response. I have an appointment next week with my doctor and I will ask him what other alternatives there is.

Cycloben/back pain
1 Reply RSS
Hi! My doctor told me not to take cyclobenzapr 10 mg on a night before I went to work as it would make me tired. Then when I get the prescription it says take 3 times a day. I took it one night and was tired pretty much all day the next day after sleeping for about 12 hours (which is something I very rarely do)!! I'm not sure if this was the reason I was tired all day.. It could have been a combination of a cold, stress, back pain, and the meds.. I'm also taking meloxicam once a day which could make me tired also.. I guess I'm wandering if I can take it three times a day? I'm a little scared I'll be too tired to do anything!! I'm also wandering if there's more of a problem.. My dr says it's tight muscles due to spasms and there's nothing I can do exce...

Effectiveness of generic meloxicam changes with manufacture
3 Replies RSS
I take meloxicam , I have found that the effectiveness changes with manufacturer . Does anyone know which generic is the most like brand name Mobic? ## Meloxicam manufactured by Cipla USA is the absolute WORST. It has so many fillers it may as well be a placebo and does not relieve arthritis pain in any way. I find that the generic manufactured by Lupen Pharmaceuticals is the best out there. I have taken 15mg daily for several years and it has improved my mobility dramatically. Unfortunately, pharmacies change manufacturers frequently, so if you find that your current pharmacy stores one that does not work for you, either change pharmacies or have your doctor prescribe the name brand, if possible. ## Hi Carol, In conjunction with the helpful information in Rachel's post, I just want...

Meloxicam long term use
7 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...

can you get addicted to meloxicam
1 Reply RSS
I've taken 15mg of meloxicam for years for joint pain. I can tell a big difference when I have to stop taking it for medical procedures. Is there a risk in use for years and is it addictive? My doctors office called today to reduce to 7.5mg daily. ## Hello, PB! How are you? The FDA classifies this medication as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so no, it's not addictive in the same sense that an opiate can be, but your body does get used to anything you take on a regular basis for a long period of time and suddenly stopping it will be noticeable and may result in some minor withdrawal effects, such as aches, pain, headaches and diarrhea. As to risks with long-term use, yes, there are some, such as stomach ulceration and liver damage, or failure. Is there anything else I can help...
