Could meloxicam 15mg be taken alongside 800mg ibuprofen for RA? My Dr prescribed the meloxicam 15mg once daily. I've been taking the ibuprofen 800mg every 4 to 6 hours. Can I take both or is it safer to just take one?

Since they are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, you should stick with one or the other. According to NIH reports, doubling up increases the risk of blood thinning, bleeding, and stomach ulceration.

Have they both been prescribed by the same doctor? Are you on any other medications?

I normally take ibuprofen. I took a 15mg Meloxicam this morning and it doesn’t work as well as the ibuprofen. How long do I have to wait to switch back? I have severe lower back pain and sciatica and take Neurontin, Tizanidine and Endocet along with the ibuprofen. 8 hours have gone by and the Meloxicam doesn’t compare to 600mg 3x a day of ibuprofen. Thank you!
