I have had similar side effects to taking Gleevec and Meloxicam. What compounds are the same in these two meds that I am allergic to. Mainly, severe facial swelling. Thank you.

I recently had a pharmacist look up possible similarities in Gleevec and Meloxicam and they were magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, and microcrystalline cellulose. ALL are fillers in medications. Supposedly, pharmaceutical companies use cheaper fillers in generic meds. But neither of these meds are generics. Does anyone know anything about microcrystalline cellulose?? As to its source??

Hello, Janet! How are you?

Meloxicam is a generic, the name brand for it is Mobic.

But I've never heard anything about them using 'cheaper' fillers, there is a certain list of them they can choose from that are considered safe and inactive, but they must all meet safety and purity standards.

What type of side effects did you have to these medications? That may help me to look more closely into the problem for you.

Thank you for any help you can offer. I experienced severe facial swelling. To be exact, my face swelled like a pumpkin. No respiratory distress. I could barely see out of my eyes. It happened first with the Gleevec and then 6 months later I was treated for arthritis with Meloxicam and it happened again after just 2 doses.
The pharmacist I asked about the reaction said the only similar compounds within the drugs were those 3 fillers. Since then I have taken other supplements with these compounds with NO SIDE EFFECT. Thank you for any other information. It is a discomforting effect. Janet
