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). The doctor specifically told me to stop taking ibuprofen, naproxen or any other NSAID. He said I can take tylenol. So, I would check with the doctor who prescribed the meloxicam.

Meloxicam overdose?
1 Reply RSS
I accidentally took 2 15mg tabs of Meloxicam tonight. I don't feel bad or anything unusual, do I need to go to the e.r.? ## Unless you experience an allergic reaction, or sudden bleeding, that would usually not be something to go to the ER for, according to NIH reports, but it is always best to double check with your doctor to be sure. Are you on any other medications? Did you experience any adverse effects?

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.

I take 7.5 mg. my hands still hurt and are swollen. 2nd day to take them. I scraped glue off a floor for several days and night and my hands and fingers are so swollen and very painful . ## Merry Christmas Joyce, Sorry to hear about the pain in your hands and fingers. Scraping glue off a floor for several days/nights sounds like it would do that to just about anyone though. But I hope you're able to find some level of relief from taking the meloxicam. Based on your description, my guess is that it may be a while before the swelling subsides. However it seems like you're using the right preventative measures w/ a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug to keep it from getting any worse. Have you also considered looking into supplements like Turmeric/Curcumin as a secondary option for...
