I took 15 mg of meloxicam 17 hours ago for arthritis in my knee it now very painful and swollen can I take one Motrin now ## Hello, Teri! How are you?

If the Meloxicam isn't helping, it would be best to consult your doctor to see what your other options might be. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you Verwon for your response.

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?
