Meloxicam Overview

Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) with analgesic and fever reducer effects. It is a derivative of oxicam, closely related to piroxicam, and falls in the enolic acid group of NSAIDs.[2] It was developed by Boehringer-Ingelheim. Meloxicam starts to relieve pain about 30–60 minutes after administration.[3] As of 2015 the cost for a typical month of medication in the United States is less than 25 USD.[4] Contents 1 Side effects 1.1 Cardiovascular side effect...

Meloxicam side effects concerns
2 Replies RSS
I started taking Meloxicam (15 mg) ten days ago for spondyloarthritis. I few days ago, I started having headaches and tension in my neck/shoulders. I read that you're not supposed to take iboprofen or other NSAIDS with it, so I took Tylenol instead to get rid of the headache, which worked. I also noticed that I was having bloating, belching, loose stools/diarrhea, and weight gain, despite diet and exercise. In fact, while I was doing my walking yesterday (roughly 3 miles or so in an air conditioned mall), I started feeling a little lightheaded and getting winded easier than I should have. Afterwards, on my way home, I stopped by the grocery store and was still feeling a little strange and when I reached the blood pressure machine I decided to check mine. It was high for me: 161/90+ ...

Is Meloxicam Gluten Free
11 Replies RSS
I have been taking meloxicam for 1 1/2 weeks and I am experiencing celiac symptoms. I would like to know if meloxicam is gluten free ## 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? ## I would like to know if gluten is in my meloxicam. It's an oblong light yellow pill with a 15 stamped on it.

How long does it take to feel the benifits of taking this medicine. I have severe pain in both knees from jogging and possible slight arthirtis formation . ## How long have you been taking it? Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it should have some effect on the pain and inflammation right away, though it may take a few weeks to reach its full effect. Learn more Meloxicam details here. However, if it isn't helping, it may not be the right medication to help your condition.

I've took meloxicam for five days for a toothache and discontinued use two days ago I'm having pain again is it ok to take a ibuprofen ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? It should be fine, as long as your prescriber approves. It's usually taking them at the same time, together, that may cause problems, according to the NIH, such as liver damage, liver failure, increased risk of bleeding, stomach irritation, and stomach ulceration. When are you having the tooth fixed?

Meloxicam long term use
12 Replies RSS
I have been using 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 the present condition. Any data is 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.

Hello yes I am new to this medicine, 4 days to be exact. At first I was optimistic but I currently am experiencing pain. The pill is 7.5/ mg. I have a hip replacement and femoral rod and an in-stable knee where I also experience pain.My question is when will this medicine go into full swing? I feel like it may have worked and then stopped which is so weird to me. Please help and I am open to suggestions. ## Hello, Jocelyn! How are you? This is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it should have started working, within 15 to 20 minutes of taking your first dose.

It could be that it isn't the right medication to help you, or you may need to take ...

Double dose of 15mg meloxicam same day by accident
1 Reply RSS
I may have taken a double dose of my 15mg Meloxicam by accident, albeit, c. 7 hours apart? What should I do? What are possible consequences? ## Hello, John! How are you? Did you experience any adverse effects? Generally, that wouldn't be enough to cause an overdose, but you may experience more side effects than usual, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased risk of bleeding. However, it is always best to inform your doctor, so they can check for any possible harm, if they feel it is warranted. Is there anything else I can help with?

can you take more than 15mg a day of meloxicam..I take 22.5
1 Reply RSS
I was wondering if I can take 1 15 mg in morning and later in day take half of another one..seems to be what helps the most?? ## Hello, Bradon! How are you? Due to the potential damage it can cause to the liver, the maximum daily dose of it is 15mgs. If it isn't helping enough at that dose, you should inform your prescriber, you may need to try a different medication. The FDA lists other side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?
