Meloxicam long term use

I have been taking meloxicam 15 mg once per day for RA for more than six years now. I would like to know whether it is safe to use the drug for such a long duration? I can not stop this drug in my present condition. Is there any data available on this subject? Thanks in advance. ## Hi, Joy! Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so yes there may be some issues caused by long term use, such as stomach ulceration, edema, hypertension, congestive heart failure and liver damage. Is your doctor monitoring you regularly? Usually regular exams and blood tests are the best way to keep an eye on things and head off any problems, before they have a chance to get serious. Learn more Meloxicam details here. ## I have been on Meloxicam for nearly 12 years, refilled by several doctors which I...

will meloxicam show up on a drug test

Will meloxicam 15 mg show up on a drug test? Thank you ## only the drugs a drug test is testing for can show up - eg marijuana, cocaine. it is unlikely a drug like Meloxicam, used for arthritis, would show. however, if it is being abused, the side effects may signal an alarm to someone that something is not right. ## No, it will not. Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. ## Anybody gaining weight from taking this Mobic 15mg? ## I have a drug test for the military in about two weeks, I take my boyfriends meloxicam for my back at work because I am a server and I never sit down really unless its dead shift.

I'd bought Meloxicam 7.5mg on Dec.15-2014. I would like to know if there is no harm to use it now? Thanks for any help. My concern is to know the expiration date of pills sold in 2014. ## Sorry to not reply from since because I'm not in good shape.

if i take 15 mg of meloxicam daily can 10 prednisone

I take 15 mg of meloxicam daily for degenerative arthritis. I also have been prescribed 20 mg of prednisone for gout. Can I take the prednisone now if I took my meloxicM 4-1/2 hrs ago? ## Hello, Kanakagurl! How are you? Actually, these medications tend to increase the toxicity of each other and increase the risk of gastrointestinal ulceration. Thus, before mixing them, it would be best to check with your doctor to make sure that it is safe for you to do so. You may need to go off the Meloxicam, while on the Prednisone. Prednisone is a steroid that may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, fluid retention, mood swings, weight changes and elevated blood pressure. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I just took my last dose of medrol this morning. It has done nothing for my...

Meloxicam and alcohol safety

I am a regular drinker, but have only taken meloxicam one time ten hours ago. I normally consume 8 to 10 drinks. Can I drink alcohol ten hours after taking meloxicam? ## That is far too much to be consuming regularly, doing so will take its toll on your stomach, and liver, eventually. Please consider lowering your alcohol consumption. As to drinking after taking Meloxicam, I am sorry, but there is no specific safe window that I can quote you. Combining them could result in liver damage, liver failure, stomach irritation, and stomach ulceration, according to FDA warnings. Are you taking any other medications?

I don't use drugs but I have taken meloxicam. ## I tested false positive for Meloxicam on my test yesterday. Can anyone else help with real advice?

We need to be prescribed something else or it will keep doing the false positive and if your a commercial driver they will pull your certifications. Crazy as it us. ## Such a problem does exist but I lost my job and was l...

How long does it take meloxicam to get out of your system?

I've been taking 15 mg of Meloxicam once a day for about 2 weeks for bursitis. I'm also taking Tylenol approximately 2200 mg per day for pain. I've begun experiencing extreme dizziness just today when getting out of bed. I've notified my Dr. I didn't think and took today's dose of Meloxicam already. Is there anything I can do to help clear this medication out of my system? ## Hello Nana, Unfortunately I don't think there is anything you can do to metabolize the meloxicam any quicker without taking a different type of drug. There are no listed interactions with meloxicam and food or over the counter drugs that would increase the metabolism of your medication. A side note I wanted to let you know is that according to the National Institute of Health, dizziness ...
