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... ...

## 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. ...

I took 2 Meloxicam (15mg) instead of one by mistake. ## Have you contacted your doctor? The maximum daily daily recommended dosage is just 15mgs and taking more, might potentiate the side effects, such as nausea, drowsiness and headache. 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. ...

my wife has been taking this medicine for on and off for the past year if it causes liver problems and she drinks what would be a good advice for her considering we are getting a divorce. she the mother of my kids and I do care for her ## Hello, CW! 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 take 15 mg Meloxicam once a day. It is helpful relieving pain for about 12 hours. Can I cut the pill in half and try taking them every 12 hours? ## Just started taking Meloxicam 3 days ago. My Dr. said to only take half for at least a week and then if needed I can increase to a full pill. Hope that helps. ## Hi, Donna! How are you? It's really hard to advise on so little information. Anyone reading this knows nothing about your medical condition and history, other medications you may be on or etc. Learn more Meloxicam details here. This is a potent NSAID, so it can cause some problematic side effects, such as nausea, increased risk of bleeding and stomach ulceration. Thus, before changing anything, you should consult your doctor to make sure it is safe for you to do so. Are there ... ...

My doctor has prescribed Meloxicam & Xljanz. Are they safe taken together? ## Hi pinnie, According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, there are no drug interactions listed between Meloxicam and Xeljanz (tofacitinib citrate). Based off this information alone, I wouldn't have any reason to believe that you couldn't take the two together... especially since your doctor prescribed them both to you at the same time. I can't blame you though for being extra cautious, as there have been who knows how many instances where doctors mistakenly prescribe two drugs that interact with one another. Hope this helps! ...
