## I am having problems when I started taking this drug,now that i am off it it has left severe back problem in which i need help out of bed every morning. ## The problem could actually be caused by your stopping the drug abruptly. Since it reduces inflammation, it might have been reducing it in an area of your spine where you have damage or swelling and then by stopping it, your body is unprepared to regulate that condition on its on, kind of a withdrawal effect, and the pain and inflammation has gotten worse. I would recommend speaking to your doctor so they can check out the problem and see exactly what is causing it. ...

It also increases the risk of liver and stomach damage, which are effects you may not notice any symptoms for right away. So, you should consult your doctor, just to be on the safe side. ...

How are you? Okay, it isn't that a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory does cause liver problems, but there is a risk that it might cause them. The same for the drinking and combining the two increases that risk. Since this is a prescription medication, is she seeing the prescribing doctor regularly? Because, if so, they should be monitoring her and occasionally doing blood work to check her liver function. And is that doctor aware that she drinks? ...

I was diagnosed with crohn’s about 6 months ago and the last month I’ve been having bad lower back pain. I recently went to a pain clinic and got prescribed meloxicam 7.5 mg 2x, Duloxetine dr 30mg, and Baclofen 10mg 3x. I’ve been having bad nausea, and still having back and stomach pain. I was wondering if anyone has been prescribed this for crohn’s pain, or can tell me what you’re prescribed for pain associated with crohns pain, Thanks! ## Hello, Sam! How are you?

Co Meloxicam 15 Mg
co-meloxicam 15 mg - take when needed How long does it take to take effect? What are the long term effects of taking this drug? ## Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Learn more Meloxicam details here. It will take about 20 minutes to half an hour to start entering your blood stream and have some effect, but you have to be aware that this is not a narcotic analgesic, so it isn't going to work for pain like that. This would be more equivalent to Advil and how it works. As to possible long term effects, since this is an NSAID, there is the risk of developing stomach damage, as well as liver damage. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## Is Meloxicam effective for sciatic related pain/inflammation? ## Per Verwon , ... ...
