meloxicam 15 mg question
I am taking this for extreme pain in my shoulder & arm. How long does it take for this to take affect? Will I have to keep taking it to be able to work? My right arm is still not as good as my left arm. I've only taken one 15mg pill however. ## Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so while it can ease pain and swelling, it might not relieve all of it, when you're suffering from severe pain.

And yes, all medications only last for a certain period of time in your body, so you should follow your doctor's instructions for its use. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

What Can I Take For A Fever If Am Taking 15g Of Meloxicam
I am a 72 year old male and taking 15 mg of Meloxicam a day for arthritis. I think I have the flu and am running a temperature of 101 degrees. What can I take to fight the temperature? ## First and foremost, I'd recommend drinking plenty of (lemon) water to help flush your system out and keep your body cool. You may also want to have some herbal tea on hand with raw honey if you have a stuffy nose or sore throat. Essential oils, such as lavender or peppermint are other options. Aside from that, having a good amount of fruits and vegetables (during this time onward) will help to strengthen your immune system so you don't get sick as easily in the future. It will probably have to run it's course, but doing those things should alleviate any symptoms in the mean time. I hope thi... ...

Can Meloxicam Be Cut In Half
Can a 15 mg Meloxicam be cut in half? I have reactions to anti-inflammatory and would like to see if I can get by with 7.5 mg but already have a full bottle of 15 mg. ## Generally, if there is a score line on the pill, it is meant to be cut in half for these circumstances.

Just be sure to continue to take it as recommended by your doctor. ## Is Mobic (generic for meloxicam) time release ?...just wondering since it is once daily. ...

meloxicam 15 mg, naproxen 500 mg, and benedryl 25 mg interaction
Checking if OK to take these together: meloxicam 15 mg, naproxen 500 mg, and benedryl 25 mg ## No, you shouldn't take the Meloxicam and the Naproxen together, both of those are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, so it's basically doubling up on the same thing and is completely unnecessary. Additionally, they both increase blood thinning and taking them together heightens that effect, they also both increase serum potassium, which is also heightened by taking both and too much potassium building up in your body is very dangerous. The Meloxicam also increases your levels of the Naproxen… You can learn more Meloxicam details here and you can learn more Naproxen details here. I hope that is enough to give you the idea that combining them is a bad idea. :-)... ...
