Meloxicam and Sumatriptan

Can I take these two medicines together? I normally take Sumatriptan for migraines. I fell on the ice and hurt my shoulder and the Orthopedic has me taken 1 Meloxicam a day. I have a bad migraine and need to know if I can take a Sumatriptan. ## While I haven't come across any drug interactions or contraindications suggesting that it's unsafe to take the two together, I think it would still be wise to consult your prescribing doctor just to be on the safe. That way they can cross-check for other determining factors as well based on your medical records. You can also read more about each medication in the links below: [1] Meloxicam [2] Sumatriptan Hope this helps!

Problems with Celebrex

I was forced to start taking the generic Celebrex about 4-6 months ago. I have taken Celebrex for many years! I've had a couple of U/A's come back with traces of blood in my urine and wondering if this could be related to the drug?! ## Hello Susan! How are you doing? According to FDA reports, Celebrex has been known to cause some gastro-intestinal bleeding as a side effect, though it's not very common. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, edema, leg cramps, and alopecia. Ref: Celebrex Information So yes, there is a chance it could be do to the medication, but only a doctor can do more checking to say for sure.

Seeking Safe Anti-Inflammatory Medication Suggestions Post-Knee Replacement

I have had a total knee replacement and I need a suitable anti-inflammatory. Unfortunately, I can't take Celebrex because it is a sulfur drug, and Mobic makes me feel ill. Meloxicam makes me feel unwell too, and Xefo causes my heart to race. I am unsure of a safe anti-inflammatory medication to use, as I'm experiencing a lot of pain in my knee. Can you help with any suggestions? I have Vimovo, which contains Naproxen, but it has so many side effects that I am too scared to take it. ## Try Duexis. It's best for the tummy.

Charlote Arthritis Mexican pain pill

My wife, age 84, had arthroscopic surgery on her knee 15 years ago with little benefit. Lately she has had the rooster shots with no benefit.

Cosentyx side effects

I was on Enbrel for 5 years for plaque psoriasis and had 95% clearing. I became tolerant to the Enbrel and the plaques started coming back especially on the scalp. Was put on Stellara which caused unrelenting fatigue and nausea with no clearing at all so I stopped. I am now taking Cosentyx which caused nausea and fatigue for a day or two after each shot. I just took my 6th dose and again have nausea and fatigue. The Cosentyx has stopped the spreading of the plaques but I have not had any clearing as of yet. I have been told not to expect much for three months so I have started the timer. Good luck to all of you and thank you for sharing, it gives me hope. ## How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Yes, it can usually take awhile for any given medication to reach its full leve...
