can you take more than 15mg a day of meloxicam..I take 22.5
1 Reply RSS
I was wondering if I can take 1 15 mg in morning and later in day take half of another one..seems to be what helps the most?? ## Hello, Bradon! How are you? Due to the potential damage it can cause to the liver, the maximum daily dose of it is 15mgs. If it isn't helping enough at that dose, you should inform your prescriber, you may need to try a different medication. The FDA lists other side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Meloxicam long term use
11 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...

How long can you take meloxicam safely?
3 Replies RSS
I have osteoarthritis in my spine, knees and hips and have recently developed severe pain in both arms, extending to the fingers on my right hand, worse on getting out of bed in the morning. I was taking Panadol Osteo two three times a day which didn't really help much so my doctor prescribed Mobic. It helps a lot but not completely so am wondering if I should keep taking Panadol Osteo as well as Mobic? Also, is it necessary to have a few days break from Mobic every so often? I take Sotalol for AF, Perindopril for blood pressure, Apixaban as a blood thinner and Carbimazole for hyperthyroidism. I have asked my doctor and pharmacist these questions but am still confused as to what I should safely do even though I have read all the information available. ## Hello, Janice! How are you? ...

I am prescribed 15mg of mobic daily I accidentally took another one today the first one was at 0800 am and then I messed up and took one at 6:15 pm. Should I be concerned and should I skip my dose in the morning. I have taking this pill for a few years. ## Hello, Rodney! How are you? Did you experience any adverse affects? You should always inform your doctor of such an occurrence, to be safe, though doing so once it's usually considered a major issue. It can, however, increase the amount and severity of the side effects that you experience, which as listed by the FDA, may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. ## It's usually NOT considered a major issue. My apologies, I'm starting to hate my computer!

meloxicam for chronic pain/inflammation
1 Reply RSS
I have taken Indomethacine for chronic inflammation (possible spondylitis) for 3 weeks and it seemed to make the pain worse than while taking Advil. I switched to Meloxicam and have been taking it for a week. Again, no relief and perhaps it's even worse! Is it possible for these drugs to worsen the pain? How long does it generally take to get relief while taking these meds? ## Unfortunately, some people do experience the opposite of the intended effects from any given medication. It could be that you may need to explore other treatment options. The FDA lists other typical side effects as possibly including nausea, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding. Have you only tried NSAIDs, so far?

meloxicam 15 mg, naproxen 500 mg, and benedryl 25 mg interaction
2 Replies RSS
Checking if OK to take these together: meloxicam 15 mg, naproxen 500 mg, and benedryl 25 mg ## No, you shouldn't take the Meloxicam and the Naproxen together, both of those are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, so it's basically doubling up on the same thing and is completely unnecessary. Additionally, they both increase blood thinning and taking them together heightens that effect, they also both increase serum potassium, which is also heightened by taking both and too much potassium building up in your body is very dangerous. The Meloxicam also increases your levels of the Naproxen… You can learn more Meloxicam details here and you can learn more Naproxen details here. I hope that is enough to give you the idea that combining them is a bad idea. :-)...

What to expect with meloxicam

Hello, I am a new meloxicam user - pinched torn meniscus and knee arthritis. I felt pain relief the first day I took it - yippee. Knee replacement has been suggested but since I feel a huge improvement on the med (no to little pain, no limp, can bend without pain) thinking I can postpone surgery. Can you tell me an estimate of long I can expect benefit from 15 mg 1 per day? ## Hello, Anna! How are you? There is really no definitive time frame I can give you. The time period that a medication remains effective can vary from person to person. One person may be able to take the same dose for years, with good results, while someone else finds it only helps them for a few months.

which is stronger hydrocode or meloxicam
3 Replies RSS
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. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can you take meloxicam and pill oxdonconton together. ## Can you take meloxicam and pill oxycodone together.

I'd bought Meloxicam 7.5mg on Dec.15-2014. I would like to know if there is no harm to use it now? Thanks for any help. My concern is to know the expiration date of pills sold in 2014. ## Sorry to not reply from since because I'm not in good shape. I'm not in good shape and I'm in hospitals and laboratories every day of the week. I saw my family doctor and prescriber of Meloxicam. He preferred to give me another prescription without explanation. My advice is to see the doctor. Thank you for your help and sorry for not being useful to others. DEDE

meloxicam 15 mg for severe lower back pain.
2 Replies RSS
I severely damaged my lower back this morning. I have had back pain for some years now. I went and saw my Dr today who prescribed me Endone and Meloxicam 15mg, my Dr is aware that i suffer stomach pain when i take anti inflammatory medication. He did advise me that these tablets are okay to take. I am unsure what to do as I do have stomach ulcers, and I need the inflammation in my back to go away. ## Hello, Debbie! How are you? Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it can cause stomach irritation and ulceration, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache and increased risk of bleeding. Thus, it may be best to take it with an antacid to protect your stomach, if your doctor approves of your doing so.

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? Also I have been taking a prescribed dosage of Potassium Chloride 10MEQ (what it says on the prescription bottle) but been on the Potassium for a few years. Is this a bad combo?

if i take 15 mg of meloxicam daily can 10 prednisone
3 Replies RSS
I take 15 mg of meloxicam daily for degenerative arthritis. I also have been prescribed 20 mg of prednisone for gout. Can I take the prednisone now if I took my meloxicM 4-1/2 hrs ago? ## Hello, Kanakagurl! How are you? Actually, these medications tend to increase the toxicity of each other and increase the risk of gastrointestinal ulceration. Thus, before mixing them, it would be best to check with your doctor to make sure that it is safe for you to do so. You may need to go off the Meloxicam, while on the Prednisone. Prednisone is a steroid that may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, fluid retention, mood swings, weight changes and elevated blood pressure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I just took my last dose of medrol this morning. It has done nothing for my...

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?

Effects of long term use of Meloxicam
2 Replies RSS
I"m a 70 year old female. Very active. Runner, short triathlons, lift weights and otherwise have a very active (hard working) lifestyle. I have been taking 15mg. Meloxicam tablet on average about two per week for about 6 years. Of course, I"m concerned about the side effects I"ve read about for long term use. Does taking them only two per week mitigate these side effects even if I"ve been taking them for a long period of time? ## Hello, Judy! How are you? There is still some slight risk, but most of what you read about are effects from daily long-term use, not occasional. That's why others, such as Ibuprofen are available over the counter. The most common include liver damage, stomach damage, increased risk of bleeding and stomach ulceration. Is there anything else I...
