Common Questions and Answers about How does meloxicam work

mobic

Starting this new anti-inflammation med and I read it could cause weight gain and swelling.....anyone have this as a symptom? How well does it work? Have a lot of pain from herniated discs in my neck and back.
If you are concerned about the medication, talk to your doctor and see if there is another option, maybe something that is not as strong to try for starters and, if that does not work out, move up. Many of us have to weight the side effects against the benefits considering all of the ways our conditions effect our lives. Hope some more specific personal experience info will be posted here soon.
It reduces pain, swelling, and stiffness of the joints. Meloxicam is a NSAID. It is not a narcotic. How this medication will work for you will depend upon your pain source and of course how well your system personally responses to it. I have taken it and it did nothing for my pain. However my pain is beyond responding to an NSAID. Careful to not upset your stomach lining. Be sure you take it as directed and never on an empty stomach.
My doctor suggests that I try Norspan/Transtec plasters, does anyone have experience using that for Fib/CFS? I would be very happy to hear from others :) Springtime greetings from Jayjay.
turn adversaries into allies (I hate to admit that I agree with Humane Wayne...). How would a continued punishment of Michael Vick stop dog fighting? How would keeping Michael from doing a job that he is qualified for and (in some people's eyes) good at, stop the murder of other dogs? I firmly believe that education is the key to stopping so many of our cruel acts against our furry friends. It's really one of the top reasons that I am so excited to get out of bed each and every morning.
Amino acid therapy tends to be even more complex. Braverman does an excellent job in his text explaining how these nutrients not only work together but what they do on their own, etc. The reading is a little more difficult to get through than most other texts designed for us regular folk~, but you can do it, and there's an entire chapter devoted to Lysine and Herpes, too, so you might find some help with it.
that understands me and my pain but it took me about 7 years to get to this point. I have found that oxy and oxycotin does work for me I am on a oxy ir for immediate pain and a long lasting oxycotin for long coverage. there are other pian meds that I have tried and they don't work. every person is different and need different care.
Sorry for being so impatient but I posted a question awhile ago about taking Meloxicam or Elavil to help with withdrawals from vicodin....does anyone know if either one of these helps or what I can do in order to make this go smoother?? Please let me know.
Not sure if you all remember but i have complained about a lot of muscle aches and thought maybe it was PAWS. Well its not....had blood work done on Monday and its showed positive Arthritis and high sed rate. I have been clean and sober for 308 days and the pain recently has really been pushing my limits. Maybe I never noticed that last few years cause of the pain meds I took. But I am only 42, and now this crap.
Now the doctors have sent me to see a specialist this Friday coming, I am sure it is sciatica in the worst degree, does anyone know how I can stop this pain for now anyway. Will I need an operation to cure this?
mineral tablet (“A to Z” brand), - 1 raspberry keytone (sold by Walgreens), - 2 fish oil soft gels 1200mg (Walgreens brand) , - 2 ibuprofen (200mg each) usually, OR 2 acetaminophen (500mg each), OR 2 naproxen sodium (220mg each), OR 1 Rx meloxicam 15mg. (Pain killer taken for residual pain from knee being “scoped” 1/20/12) What is the doctor’s opinion?
It is an expensive drug, but so was our habit. I understand that it does not work for everybody, but I certainly think it is worth a shot for some of you. Let me know what you think. Do you think taking Lyrica is cheating? I do feel a little guilty, because when I took it my body went ahhhh. I thought it would work like a stronger aspirin, but it works much better.
It turned out that I was allergic to the stuff. I wonder if it's worth reassessing how well Tramadol does or doesn't work for the FMS?
Also, from taking 2-3 of them within a few hours, they made me extemely dizzy and out of it. I did not like that feeling, and it made it hard to drive or work. I am now taking Meloxicam. It is not helping, and gives me an extremely bad stomach ache. It feels like someone is cutting my stomach open with a knife. I told my doctor, and she indicated to give it " more time" and " eat crackers". I told her the Tylenol 3 and Norco KINDOF helped..
Currently she is taking 12.5 mg Methotrexate, 12.5 mg injections of Enbrel twice weekly and 7.5 mg of Meloxicam. She has been having temps of 99-101 for the last year and a half and thigh pain for 3 years. All the doctors conclude that this all may be her arthritis. I don't believe that. I am worried they are missing something. They have done 2 bone marrow biopsys and both have come back neg. But they were done with all of the medication in her.
My Ankle therapy shows 50% loss of range of motion .. how does a tinfoil head clucking chicken get around on one foot I ask ? I am managing ok taking breaks during the day and icing things down, etc., etc.
I have been tested for RA, lupus and gout. All have been negative. My doctor has had me on a trial perscription of pms-meloxicam, having already tried celebrex and naproxin. The meloxicam has been excellent for my feet and elbow but over the past two weeks my knee has taken a turn for the worse. As a matter of fact I found this forum this morning because I am home from work after being up all night with a throbbing pain and my mobility this morning is terrible.
I ended up finding a wonderful doctor. She is a very intelligent Romanian woman. They must have wonderful medical schools in Romania, because she was able to determine the cause of my undiagnosed joint pains, with 1 VISIT. She was so sweet and really cared. She made a promise to me that she would never waste my time or money, with unnecessary tests and visits. I thought that was really cool.
This could be a result of one of the medications I'm on, though (Provigil, Meloxicam, ibuprofen, Rhinocort Aqua, Clarinex). My serum calcium was measured by two different labs (a week apart) as 9.6 then 9.3 (max normal value was 10.1 for both labs). I'm not sure if this is worrisome or not, but I'm going to guess that it isn't. Bottom line? Ultrasound wasn't very clear.
I gave started on a medicine called meloxicam. It's almost like a really strong Tylenol and does wonders! Hope this helps, it should pass soon.
The pain medication to stop my pain is not working. The medication is Meloxicam 7.
I just started Mobic (meloxicam) a few days ago and they say I should work fast. Im taking one 7.5 tab a day for Piriformis syndrome which is a disorder that occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed or otherwise irritated by the piriformis muscle. I really don't see any difference in my pain level at all, I had more help w ibphrofen, should I take that right now too? could I increase the dose till I talk to my doc on Monday or should I give it more time to work?
They start at your feet and work up with an ultrasound machine. what it does is checks how well your blood is flowing to your feet. With the amount of alcohol you drink it may also just be a problem of not drink enough water that night and/or the next morning and so your body is retaining what water it has.
Ibprofen and other things don't seem to help it. I do not know how to make if feel better. Some of it is in the muscles that are extremely tight and others seem like joint pain. Just wondering. My doctors won't prescribe anything else. I have tried Lyrica and a bunch of arthritis meds. Again I am undiagnosed so they are also trying to figure out what I have.
so i call and ask for something different and they give me 15mg meloxicam which does the same thing. I'm so frustrated with my doctor. I to know where I can get prescribed something that actually works and a doctor who takes me seriously.
Sounds like Gall bladder cholic ,go on a low fat diet no dairy no eggs, no cheese, dont eat late into the evening , if it gets worse you may want to get it checked out, beets and cucumber can help ease it, apple juice, its all to do with eating ,it really hurts doesnt it, and radiates into the Back, if you google Gall Bladder Attack you can print out foods to avoid and foods you can eat, they even tell you how to flush a gall stone out drinking Olive oil and Lemon juice.
My question is; does anyone have suggestions for something EFFECTIVE that I can take for long term, chronic pain w/out the old monkey showing up? I'm too old and much too tired to entertain that nasty little creep again but I am going to have to take something for pain until forever. As little Acetominophen as possible bc of the Hep C.
My Pulmonologist made a comment a couple months ago that my wrap is 'tight', but my GI doc who does my EGD's has never said anything about it and I haven't noticed any issues swallowing. Are there any other options for my acid reflux treatment? Right now, my breathing is OK, but so frequently it eventually leads to severe breathing problems when it persists. I'm willing to try other treatments.
Okay, it seems like the triptans haven't worked for you... I think you tried them all! Does the meloxicam work well for your pain? Meloxicam is an NSAID. Another popular NSAID that migraineurs use is Naproxen, although if the Meloxicam is working that's great. Other acute treatments for migraine headaches include what used to be the first line of treatment prior to the invention of triptans: the ergot alkaloids. Have you ever tried a medication like Cafergot or DHE (Dihydroergotamine).
