Can I take meloxicam if it expired on 11/21/2015? ## Hello, Leo! How are you? This medication does not become dangerous, once expired, but it does start to lose effectiveness, so it would be best to obtain a new prescription. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

My Meloxicam expired 2 year's ago. I work in a pharmacy and know how to store it, so my question is can I take it again? I've been having issues with my elbow and ibuprofen isn't helping. Thank you ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? It does not become dangerous, once expired, but medications do slowly lose effectiveness over time. More so, if they are exposed to the elements that cause degradation, such as heat, light and moisture. Your doctor may okay you taking it, even though it's expired, but ideally it would be best to obtain a new prescription. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Have you had your elbow checked out? That would be the best thing to do, so you can disco... ...

I have meloxicam that expired in 2013, is it safe to take??? ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Medications start to lose effectiveness once expired, so the best thing to do would be to dispose of it and see your doctor for a new prescription, if you still require this medication. The FDA listed the typical side effects of this NSAID as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

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 expiration date help

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. ...

Is it ok for me to take Meloxicam 15mg after expiration (3/16/2016 to 3/16/2017)? My orthopedic Dr prescribed them for me because of severe knee and joint pain. ## According to FDA reports, it doesn't become dangerous, once expired, but it may start to lose efficacy. Thus, it would be best to dispose it and obtain a new supply from your doctor. The FDA warns that it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

expired 6 months past expiration date Meloxicam ## If you're thinking about taking it, the Meloxicam should still be fine. According to a Harvard Medical School family health article, except in rare cases (i.e. tetracycline), there is little chance of danger due to taking medications even up to 15 years beyond their expiration date. More specific details on that article can be found here: health.harvard.edu/fhg/updates/update1103a.shtml I hope this info helps! ...
