meloxicam expiration date of pills sold in 2014.

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. I'm not in good shape and I'm in hospitals and laboratories every day of the week. I saw my family doctor and prescriber of Meloxicam. He preferred to give me another prescription without explanation. My advice is to see the doctor. Thank you for your help and sorry for not being useful to others. DEDE ## Hello Dede, Sorry tell you but I don't have the answer to your question but I can provide you with some information on how you can get the answer.

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...

I have been on Meloxicam 15mg for about 2 weeks for neck and shoulder pain, believed to be caused from arthritis. It has helped alot compared to the pain I was in before I started it. I just wanted to know if it is habit forming? I take the Meloxicam in the evening but I take Lasix in the morning, is this ok that these are both taken but at different times? Thank you. ## I was on Meloxicam for 3 months and was attacking my stomach..I ended up in the ER and was diagnosed with Gastritis. .a inflammation of the stomach, odd because it's an inflammatory. I went off it cold turkey immediately and dI'd not have withdrawl at all. Everyone is different though, good luck.. ## Hello, Tracy! How are you? And thanks to Catherine for her response.

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?

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 ...

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.
