Meloxicam and hydrocodone

Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam and hydrocodone


I do have meloxicam on hand. Thinking maybe one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> with a dose later in the day of hydrocodone 7.5/500 acet and soma at bedtime Anyone have advice? And I do not know the platelet count. I did ask on a return phone call to the reply in 2 days. Can't be too low I don't think, I've never had this happen. I did just get over a sinus infection which I had when lab took blood.
I got x-rays and was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in my big toe joint and on 9-18-13 I started taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> (Mobic). The 1st two nights of taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> I felt achey at night and had a fever of about 100- 101. That went away for a while, but then started happening again now every night from about 10-1-13 to now 10-11-13. I get a slight fever at night (100-101) and sweat bad all night long. Bad enough to where the sheets are wet. I usually lose about 3 - 3 1/2 lbs.
Significant - Monitor Closely! cyclobenzaprine + hydrocodone cyclobenzaprine and hydrocodone both increase sedation. Significant - Monitor Closely!

The reason I ask is that both of the meds you list are prescription medications. And no, they are completely different meds. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> (brand name Mobic) is a NSAID (Non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) and is used to treat inflammation. Lortab is an opiate that contains Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen. Please do not take any medication that is not prescribed to you recently. And if these are prescribed to you from two different Drs...
I take Tramadol, Zoloft, Flexeril, Restoril, high blood pressure meds, a statin for cholesterol, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span>. I couldn't tolerate Lyrica or Neurontin, both made me very ill. My Rhuemy feels that the trauma from having had 3 major knee surgeries in exactly 7 months brought my fibro to fruitation. My grown children and my husband all understand that this disease is unseen but will take total control if I allowed it to do so.
I have been prescribed hydrocodone for approx. 7 years. I had my left knee replaced in 2009 and had to have it revised in 2011 and to this day I am still in pain. My doctor increased my prescription from 90 per month to 120 per month. I'm now receiving 180 per month along with 90 cyclobenzaprine (muscle relaxer) per month. I also receive 30 meloxicam per month for swelling and pain. Even with all these meds I'm still in pain. My knees, my hips, and my back.
She also feared an addiction and asked me to wean myself off of the tramadol and gave me a prescription for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> instead. I am now down to less than a quarter tramadol a day. I can manage the pain reasonably with meloxicam and Tylenol. But it still hurts more than I would like. Now that my history has been described, here is the real issue of this post. Ever since my surgery I have had some sexual dysfunction. I used to love sex. I would think about it a lot.

I found the BEST help with the pain was taking down the immflamation and not so much trying to take away the pain itself. Ask your doc for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> ( aka Mobic ) . It is a potent anti immflamatory and does not have the "yucky" side effects of hydrocodone or percacet etc.. I found the most relief came from taking meloxicam consistently. At day 5 I saw a surgeon , by day 8 the pain came down substantially and by day 12 it was gone.
Upper legs (perhaps hips?) extremely sore and almost go out from under me when I try to stand up and walk after sitting in a chair/sofa/bed etc. Seems to be getting worse. Not tied to injury that I can think of or exercise although I've tried to increase walking to see if it improves the condition. It hasn't. Pain still hurts when walking but not as severe as when I first get up. What is this? Used to run marathons, ski, cycle - its been a life changing problem and I'd like to find a cure.
Since that time, she has placed me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> and hydrocodone. I take one 7.5 mg. of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> a day and six 7.5/500 mg of hydrocodone a day. My questions regular doctor is not sure he believes in Fibro and treats me as if I'm just a complainer and using too much medication. All I know is this is the first time I've felt human in three years. Should I change my regular physician? is this too much medication to take? Any information would be appreciated. Thank you!
Lol well november 2011 imaging showed anular tear and bulging at L4/L5. So at that point i started new pt and he put me on gabapentin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> and vicodin 5/500. Continued with all that for 6monyhs and only got worse!!!! I suffer from sever pain in back buttock and both legs! Numbness and weakness as well. Its been bery hard because i have 3 wonderful beatiful children and almost never am able to play with them to the extent i wish to. And my stress has put strain on my relationship.
Went to my doc today and i was crying because i went to my caseworker asking for some financial assistance and she was very mean and rude and to make a long story short i was feeling very alone so went to my docter and told her about my headaches (I do get bad headaches alot) and she put me on a med called mobic for my headaches have you ever heard of it and if so what exactly is it? She also put me on ativan 0.5mg for anxiety and Bancap 5/500 prn for headaches.
I also receive 30 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> per month for swelling and pain. Even with all these meds I'm still in pain. My knees, my hips, and my back. Some days I can't bend over to tie my shoes and if I bend over, I can't stand back up straight. I have gone back and forth to my VA doctors, but still no relief. I am so very tired of being in pain. I have been diagnosed with depression, I suffer from PTSD. I am a 54 year old veteran that is fed up with this system.
Hydrocodone won't get rid of the pain; I had that prescribed to me when I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed and with TN it does nothing but make me pass out. Try some Tremidol (has to be prescribed) or Oxycodone. The burning sensation will not go away, but any other pain associated with it might be dissolved.
I was maxed out on my dosage of Hydrocodone and my doctor wanted to start me on a much stronger, longer acting opiate. I decided to quit and get a true assessment of my pain level. You are on a fairly low dose right now. I was taking about 3 times what you are taking. If you are even considering trying to get off of them, now is the time to do it. The higher you go, the more brutal the detox is. Please stick close to this site.

I finally dozed off after my tests and I woke up with discharge papers beside me, nurse told me to get dressed and later told me I had a kidney infection, gave me cipro and oxycodone and sent me on my way - on the way out I threw up and they also gave me phenergan. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and took the meds, when it didnt get better I realized I should see my doctor. They examined me and said I had inflammation of my hip joint, thats what was causing my pain.
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
I have been on hydrocodone/apap 10/325 for about three months for surgery on my hand{carpal tunnel and Dupre's} then I was taking it for knee pain which helped. I was given <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> 15 mg once a day, this has made all the difference in being able to walk again. I went off the pain meds have not een able to sleep or get to sleep since I went off the pain meds, maybe 2 or 3 hours a nite.
Hi Friends, Welcome! Please make yourself at home ... snuggle down by the fire and hang on. It's a bumpy ride.
As far as reactions go, The only thing I noticed was after the gallbladder surgery, hydrocodone was given to me and it made me break out in hives. I have noticed crazy things happening. like muscle twitches that last for a few seconds. All ofthe sudden I will be cold. Really cold. Everyone else is fine. But my fingers are turning white and I have got to get a coat and wrap up. I keep gloves with me all the time.
Also I have a very good RA doc and she put me on morphine sulfate ER 15 mg tabs one tab every 12 hrs.Had me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> 15 mg tabs one time a day and methotrexate.No <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> or methotrexate now while I have HCV. Hydrocodone as needed for pain...I hate to take pills but I do know where your coming from with the RA.Good Luck in finding the right choices in tx your health issues.Keep me posted what you decided.
Now my last dose was at 2am HALF of a hydrocodone 5mg/500mg and 1 butalbital.... Granted I did not want to get out of bed, not even to take my son to school BUT I still got up went to wake him, but he told me that his back hurt....(remember he broke his tailbone last week) so I let him stay home..... I have been in bed I open my eyes post here n then I just go back to sleep.
Welcome Tram Warriors! Part 60. Wow. Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
This is the place to be if you are trying to recover from Tramadol ... Please make yourself at home!
Right now I am taking 3 5-325 soma, 8 5-325 hydrocodone, and was just recently prescribed generic neurontin at 300mg a day because the vicodin just isn't working anymore with tolerance. I am a divorced dad of a wonderful 5 year old daughter and my ex is also on me about taking the meds as I did when we were married. I know I am addicted/dependent on the vicodin for the pain in my back and have had times where I've suffered through withdrawals because I've run out way too early.
// I have read through the post,, which discusses this specifically. Thanks, for the guidance.
and DDD cervical and lumbar pain with radiated inflammation. I have recently had Celebrex 200mg andthe newer <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span> (Mobic) to trial and compare. Mobic "seemed" to give more relief in quelling some of the mind invading searring burning in arms, legs, back of skull and face .... along with redness and swelling as inflammation grows ....especially once vertical and walking or typing like this. Do you know anything about the long term risks of daily bd 7.5mg meloxicam ...
Enteric coated naproxen 550mg is cheap, RX only, and protects your gut from bleed risk. Celebrex and Mobic (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>meloxicam</span>-cheap) are once daily options that help lower risk of bleed. All of the other OTC NSAIDS, if used chronically, are not worth the bleed risk. Get your MD to give u a good long acting enteric coated NSAID. Diclofenac XR is generic Voltaren and is available in a once daily formulation. 3. Non-drug options - ThermaCare heat wraps for the neck are a staple at our home.
