Meloxicam is actually a generic medication, the name brand for it would be Mobic and, since it is a generic, it is manufactured by several different companies. Thus, I can't tell you anything about the inactive ingredients without more information from you, such as the markings on the tablet, or the name of the manufacturer.

Can you please post back with this information?

Cathy did you find out more about taking Moxicam 15 and experiencing tummy pains and bloating? I'm a celiac sufferer too and my doc prescribed Moxicam 15 but it seemed to trigger my celiac symptoms. I've stopped taking them and have been suffering badly with my sore joints (fingers, wrists and ankles). Maybe a natural remedy for the joint pain?

From the manufacturer's website
Each capsule contains either 7.5 mg or 15 mg of the active ingredient meloxicam.
In addition, each capsule also contains the following inactive ingredients:
lactose monohydrate
maize starch
sodium citrate
magnesium stearate
This medicine is gluten-free, sucrose-free, tartrazine-free and free of other azo dyes.

You are describing the capsule and the tablet may have a different composition. I am having a bad reaction to the tablet as well. I would like to know if the tablet has gluten.

Hi! My name is Sharon and my knee gives out and my leg pulls up and I experience excruciating pain. My worse attack was about one hour after eating pizza. Looks like I am gluten sensitive! A friend of mine explained that your digestive system slows down when laying down. I was laying down when it happened and usually am when it happens. I can walk with Walker. I have arthritis and can't do other leg exercises because my knee will pull up and give out. Any suggestions? I am trying to stay away from gluten but I think it is even inside some of my generic meds which can't be checked out as far as I know.

Re: CRSB09 (# 17) Expand Referenced Message

I have done research, but I can't seem to get an actual answer on what Unichem uses as their plant derived ingredients in MAGNESIUM STEARATE. Could this possibly be what's triggering my symptoms?

Which brands of Meloxicam are gluten free in 2020? Formulations change. The answer you provided regarding ingredients and GF status didn't say which manufacturer you were siting, and I need a meloxicam that is free of gluten. I'm getting desperate. Have spent 4 days doing internet research and calling pharmacies and pharma manufacturers.
