Meloxicam Overview

Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with analgesic and fever reducer effects.

meloxicam and methocarbamol - can you take them together
1 Reply RSS
I took the meloxicam this morning, in extreme pain. Can I take a methocarbamol 11 hrs later? ## Hello, Debby! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between them, but it is always best to double check to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

I've run out of 15mg Meloxicam
1 Reply RSS
I've been prescribed 15mg of Meloxicam tablets and take it every morning after breakfast but I've run out. Can I take 2x 7.5mg tablets instead? Also, is there a difference between the capsules and tablets? ## Yes, you can double up on the others, unless your doctor instructs otherwise. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. I am not aware of there being any difference. Is there anything else I can help with?

Effectiveness of generic meloxicam changes with manufacture
4 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
13 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.

cramps from meloxicam
2 Replies RSS
Knee problems from years of racquetball - miniscus are gone - doc prefers me do the Rball for heart health rather than knee replacement. (ME TOO!!!). Incredibly - Meloxicam (15 mg / day) has ZEROED the pain. The problem I have developed after about two months is leg cramps - usually calf muscles & usually during the night - a couple of times a week. Is there a fix for these leg cramps? ## According to the NIH, the most common cause of nighttime leg cramps is low potassium levels in the body, this medication has been known to cause dehydration in some people that take it, which could contribute to the problem. How much fluid do you take in each day? Do you eat any potassium rich foods, such as oranges or bananas? ## I drink 6 to 10 Gatorade G2 (smallest size) a week and eat bananas o...
