Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with analgesic and fever reducer effects. It is a derivative of oxicam, closely related to piroxicam, and falls in the enolic acid group of NSAIDs.[2] It was developed by Boehringer-Ingelheim. Meloxicam starts to relieve pain about 30–60 minutes after administration.[3] As of 2015 the cost for a typical month of medication in the United States is less than $25 USD.[4] Contents 1 Side effects 1.1 Cardiovascular side effec...

Hello, I just filled my meds....haven't taken them at all... Once I start taking it do i have to keep taking them? Forever?

Do you have any other questions?

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. My dr has me on 15 mg of Meloxicam for a month now . And I am also on oxcodone/acetaminophen.My question is how long can I take Meloxicam before i should have any cocerns? I was told by anot...

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.

small white oval pill with 15 on side and blank on other
2 Replies RSS
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. Thank You ## Based on your description, the closest match is a light yellow (could be mistaken for white?) oblong tablet with 15 on one side and blank on the other. A picture is available for verification at this URL: If this is what you have, then it's Meloxicam 15 mg, manufactured by Lupin Pharmaceuticals. If this isn't a match, then can you please include any other details you can think of? Please post back if you have any other questions or information to add... ## I take that tablet, also, and what is described is probably meloxocam, but the image shown greatly exaggerates the shade of yellow. The actual product i...

Meloxicam long term use
22 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...

Hello, I want to know when would be most helpful time to take 15mg meloxicam (night or morning)? Thank you. ## There is no specific best time, unless your doctor has instructed otherwise, you can take it whenever it is most convenient for you. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can I take paracetamol with melodic am. I am on 15mg, but it's still really painful

You have a risk if you to take Meloxicam?

Meloxicam 15MG TAB (mee-LOX-i-kam) ## Hi, I know this is a bit naught and possibly tjw wrong thing to to, so this is certainly not meant as advice, just what I do. My partner and father also have bad knees. When my knees start playing up, I take 2 x 15mg so 30mg in total every day I am in pain / discomfort and always have done. It's helps pain and allows me to have a better range of movemement to manipulate if back in to the position it should be in allowonge to be able to walk again. I know it's not prescribed to me and I know it's over the daily maximum dose but hey it works for me. I have finally decided to go to my doctor next week and have it prescribed for me. Thanks John.

Meloxicam side effects and concerns
6 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+ ...
