Mobic side effects

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. ...

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?

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?
