mobic and magnesium salicylate

I just took a Diurex and a mobic within minutes of each this a problem? ## My mother takes mobic on a periodic basis. She has also begun to take magnesium supplements in hopes of relieving muscle cramps. Should we be worried about a drug interaction? ## I didn't find any interactions, or warnings listed, but it is always best to double check with your doctor, or pharmacist to be sure, since they may be aware of information that hasn't been listed in the databases, yet. Mobic contains the active ingredient Meloxicam, it's a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. Are you on any other...

Mobic And Suboxone

Does Mobic "go" with Suboxone. I take Sub for RLS and have a bad headache. Wondering if mobic will be effective. Thanks ## Based on my research there are no drug interactions found between the active ingredients in Mobic and Suboxone; deeming them safe to take together. Mobic (Meloxicam) is generally indicated for symptoms associated with arthritis, so I'm not sure how effective it will be in alleviating a bad headache or RLS. Perhaps a more natural remedy like peppermint or lavender essential oil would be helpful for the headache, but for RLS I'd consider trying chamomile tea at night along with some medical marijuana (depending on what state you're living in). I just find natural options to have less side effects and more therapeutic benefits. I hope this helps! ##...

Mobic side effects, hair loss?

Has anyone had hair loss after taking Mobic? ## I've been losing tons of hair the past month and just read this. My hairdresser said it's probably either stress or all the meds I'm on for an arthritic condition. I started taking Mobic at the end of February and am now wondering, because of your e-mail, if that is the culprit for all this hair loss. Have you found a definitive answer to the hair loss question yet? ## I started Mobic 3 months ago and am losing lots of hair each day. Mobic works great but will be bald soon if I cannot stop this. Any suggestions? ## I ended up being taken off Mobic because of drop in blood count and slow gastro bleed (had been taking Feldene for about nine months prior), so I can't take any anti-inflammatories anymore...not even OTC Motrin. ...

Any other suggestions? ## I started taking Meloxicam over 6 weeks ago and now I am losing hair like crazy I wish I had know of this side affect before hand now I am fighting to reverse this night mare , will no longer take Mobic after I researched it to find others were experiencing the thing. ## Yes, the FDA does list this as being a possible side effect of this medication. Other side effects may also include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. There are other medications you can try that may not cause hair loss, you each might want to ...

Mobic dosage

I am taking 7.5 mg of mobic once a day and my dr. increased the dosage to 15mg. once a day. Wouldn't it be better to take 1 7.5mg in the a.m. and another 7.5mg in the early evening ? ## My question is the same as Jan's. Can I take 7.5 mg bid for better relief and coverage. I take 15 mg in am and then by night time, the pain is severe again and I cannot sleep. ## yes you can take 1 7.5 in the am and one in the pm. In doing so you will be able to keep the med in your system and it will work threw out the day versus it only helping for part of the day. Also it takes up to three week for a med to be in you system well enough to help you actually start to feel the full effects. ## It really depends on what works for you, I split up most of my medications and take them more than once ...

Muscle relaxant white oblong pill (MOBIC)

It's not a Percocet opiate or any other narotic! It is a basic muscle relaxer. Somas work the best for muscle problems. Don't let them say no or screw u. You will barely notice anything from this substitute!!!! ## Mobic is not a muscle relaxant, it contains the active ingredient Meloxicam, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything I can help with?

Can I take ferrous fumerate with neurobion forte?

Because last January my two ankles were swollen and I have heel pain. I've undergone different laboratory diagnostics and x-ray's and my rheumatologist told me that I have a reactive arthritis. In my last appointment she gave me ferrous fumerrate and vit d2, along with mobic. When I asked a pharmacist he recommend neurobion forte.

Mobic vs Norco

Is Mobic a substitute or equivalent drug to Norco? ## Hello, Tracey! How are you? No, it is definitely not. Mobic contains the active ingredient Meloxicam, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. However, Norco is classified as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Vitamins that interact with Mobic

What vitamins interact with Mobic? Does ubiquinol interact with Mobic? ## @Equinox, According to The University of Maryland Medical Center /'s drug interaction checker, there aren't any interactions between Mobic (Meloxicam), Ubiquinol, and a typical full-spectrum multivitamin supplement. This doesn't necessarily mean no interactions exist - However I tend to trust information from Universities where you can cross-reference this information and make that decision for yourself. If still in doubt, I'd encourage you to discuss these concerns with your doctor just to be on the safe side. Hope this helps!

a little lightly colored yellow oblong pill one side has an m on it and the other is an8 7

I can't be any more specific than that. But thank you maybe I am not seeing the numbers right ## Hello, Michelle! How are you? If you flip the pill, is it possible that it's actually a 15, rather than 87? I think what you've found is a tablet manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim that they list as being a 15mg Mobic tablet. The active ingredient is Meloxicam and the FDA classifies it as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that's used to treat pain, fever and swelling. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation.

Correction to My Initial Post

I apologize. I need to correct a date. I have been on Mobic since April 30. With Mobic, I noticed some relief immediately. The only problem I have had from Mobic at all is stomach upset if I do not eat enough food when taking it. I have found that if I eat half a banana, take the Mobic pill, then eat the rest of the banana and then drink the required water I have zero stomach issues at all. It has been a tremendous help, but I noticed most of the impact in the very beginning of starting the prescription. I am hopeful that, with time, it continues to improve my condition. I am also hopeful that it may work in combination with Lyrica, but the side-effects worry me. From what I have read of the experience of others, it seems that those who experience side effects so early on do not fare well.

Pill Identifiection

Found a little ovel pill what looks to be upside down m on one side and the number 15 on the other looking at the pill like this turn it around it looks like a w in bold lettering can u help me please ## Hi Martie, What color is this pill you're describing? If it's yellow, it fits the description of a 15mg Mobic (Meloxicam) tablet, commonly used for pain and inflammation caused by arthritis. The correct marking is "M" on one side and "15" on the other. However the "M" can look like a W depending on which way you hold it. I would say it's a pretty bold font face as well. For added verification, the manufacturer is listed as Boehringer Ingelheim, and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 0597-0030. Lastly, the pill measures approximately 11.00...

Medicines I m taking

This my third attempt for an answer. I have been on Mobic since April 2014. Also Lyrica increased from 300 to 600 daily since August2014.I've gained weight also have off and on ankle/feet swelling. Now for 2 weeks my calfs are aching. Is one or both meds the problem Help ## Hello, Marie! How are you? I am very sorry that it's taken several posts for you to get an answer. The Lyrica is the most likely culprit of the weight gain, it is well known to cause it as a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and mood swings. As to the swelling, I'd have to say that is most likely from the Mobic, since nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories can cause the fluid retention that causes edema. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding an...

Meloxicam is good or bad?

I am taking meloxicam 7.5 for RA and I feel great, I came back to a normal life, now the doctor tells me that I can have a heart attack as a result from taking this medication, is this a possibility based on the fact that it elevates the blood pressure or the fact is that it hamrs the heart? So confused, If I stop taking the only medication that has been helping me, probably I will be in a wheel chair soon. ## Hello, Gonza! How are you? Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so yes, there can be risks associated with long-term use of it. It may elevate your blood pressure, which could create the risk of a heart attack, stroke or congestive heart failure. It also creates the risk of developing liver damage or failure. What other medications have you tried? There are other options...

mobic and plaquenil

I was prescribed Mobic and plaquenil about a month ago. I ran out of Mobic a couple of days ago...I now have a rash that has taken over my body. Plaquenil can have a side effect of a rash...maybe I am just now getting the rash, now that it has had time to build up in my body? I am wondering if the Mobic drug helped to set off the side effect of rash when taking plaquenil or if that was a coincidence? Or perhaps the rash is caused by something else all together? ## Hello, Lanne! How are you? It is hard to say with certainty, though it could still be the Plaquenil, because some side effects may take 4 or more weeks to appear, once it reaches its full efficacy level in your body. It would be best to have it checked out to be sure. Are you on any other medications?

White pill one side V other 4212 with Mobic 7.5 mg safe to take?

If I take a 7.5mg Mobic with the V 4212 and it doesn't help the pain then can I take Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen / Lortab on top of it or would that be dangerous? ## Hello, Bree! How are you? Mobic is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so you really shouldn't add more of them, like the Ibuprofen, without your doctor's approval. If it and the muscle relaxant aren't alleviating your pain, you should inform your doctor to see what they suggest you do. Is there anything else I can help with?
