Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam and liver

) Anyway, now he has been sent to a pain clinic for the severe pain he is in. They know about the hep c and prescribed him meloxicam. Should he be taking this? I thought this was a drug that can harm the liver. When we said something to the nurse at the pain clinic ( who knows about the hep c) she replied he should take it anyway,just see what happens. Is this right.
I started with Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) and Meloxicam, but after experiencing a worsening of symptoms, my rheumatologist prescribed methotrexate (7.5 mg orally once a week). Then, in late 2012, I discovered I had chronic hepatitis C. I figure I've had it over 35 years. Methotrexate is contraindicated in patients with chronic HepC. I stopped taking it and am only taking Plaquenil now.
Funny, was researching Meloxicam (I'm now taking it for osteo) because of it's possible adverse side effects on the liver and low and behold, found this. Do remember it being posted here, but it might have been.. Hepatology Research, T. Kagawa and colleagues assessed whether the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) meloxicam could help prevent interferon dose reduction.
my meds include meloxicam and antitriptyline i have hydro (exercise in water) once a week but missed one week and i was worse which is why im worried for when course ends thinking of having a baby to get me off my anti depressants cos ill have 9 months without them then doc can give me more for fibro
I was prescribe Meloxicam and tynolol with codiene,is this a good combination for severe arthritis?
They gave her Meloxicam by injection and I gave her three more doses by mouth. She did not have the dialated pupils or tremors when I took her Tuesday. She did show minor improvement Thursday and Friday, but seems to be as bad if not worse now. She has spent the greater part of her day with her head under my daughter's bed over the last two days. I am concerned that she has a neurological issue. I would like to know if you have a recommendation. I hate to think that she is suffering.
Also you may want to try natural anit depressants. Nootropics. 5-http, st johns wort, cod liver oil, and maca root powder. With test shots they work great. Also don't forget diet and exercise. Also avoid hot baths and sleeping in underwear. Keep your nuts at proper temp as best you can.
I have had an a problem with opiate addiction, mainly norco and oxy for that last year and half. I have also had problems with depression and anxiety for the as long as I can remember. If you have the same issues, you probably can understand how the two go hand in hand. I am currently on Depakote ER and Lorezampam for my depression/anxiety. For the past two months I have been trying to quit opiates c/t, mainly because my access to them has been cut off for the most part.
Simply because i went to Cali in 2010 i think it was and i bought a supplement called Irwin Naturals 3-in-1 joint formula which Rebuilds Lubricates and soothes and its only now i realized the bottle is empty and i never did replenish it. The two things i never really swallowed in yrs Cold Liver oil (omega) and Calcium sorry to say and i do believe exercise on my part is lacking.
I understand that motrin isn't the greatest drug for the liver and it should only be taken under the guidance of a hep doc and for short periods of time. It's kind of a risk vs benefit type of thing. Another friend of mine who tried everything and got no relief swears by methadone. At least methadone is liver friendly.
My doctor started me on Meloxicam to help remove the swelling in my joints and help with the pain. She knows full well my hx... and I know that Meloxicam is not a narcotic. Does anyone have any thoughts? This really *****..... Thanks!!
I've done the OTC meds and that's what took me to Mobic/Meloxicam. My doctor did the preauthorization and that's what was denied. I don't even know if Celebrex is going to bet miracle. I will go to their website and see if I can get some discount coupons. Just for general information to anyone that cares..... I have seen a top gastroantonologist (spelling) who killed the myth about Tylenol and liver function. His words were " Tylenol is the better OTC for people with liver problems.
you can pinch it between your fingers and not damage it. now think of a liver. its easy to shred by squeezing hard as you did the steak. your prostate is like liver, delicate. i had a couple of very rough exams that i think may be at a cause of some of my problems. onne by a woman doctor who i think was angered by somthing i said and one by a musim doctor.
2 months ago I requested to drop to the 10mg Oxycontin. I also have been taking Meloxicam and Cyclobenzaprine PRN. I asked my GP, who I have been seeing since early childhood and who I trust completely in medical matters, to attempt a Non-narcotic treatment plan. He took me off the meloxicam and put me on Toradol (Ketorolac) 10mg 3xDaily. Now, I have researched a bit about the drug, checking the insert and also several websites, such as Drugs.
No pain when totally inactive but when I try to move, roll over or twist it is very painful. Doctor told me it was osteoarthritis and told me to take ibuprofen or meloxicam. I get some relieve but not much. Narcotic pain relievers work well but I feel like a "zombie". Want to treat the cause and not the symptoms. Not sure how to proceed. What type of specialist should I see? I think this is related to cartilage in my rib area but not sure.
No evidence of lymphadenopathy. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ My GP says my lymph nodes in my neck and groin are swollen, for sure, and that both my spleen and liver are swollen--though the liver is not as swollen as the spleen, which is hanging about 3 - 4" below where it should be hanging. I'm surprised the radiologist didn't note this. I'm also confused as to why he would say, "No significant...
Orthopedic surgeon said rest and take NSAID's (can't due to stomach/liver problems) Taking Meloxicam 3x a day and Percocet to sleep. can only lay in one position for 14 months. It is REALLY painful! No doc seems to have a real "cure" or even something remotely helpful. don't want to take steroids (lyrica, Cymbalta) and gain EVEN more weight or get hooked on pain meds. What kind of doctor do I go to next ??? have been to a dozen. I weight 190 and don't want more weight from steroids.

They found lymphoma cells in my breast, and later a tumor that sits near my throat and possibly one on my liver (although this is debatable between doctors). I went through chemotherapy for about 6 months last year and now I'm on what they call a maintenance program where they intraveniously give me a very expensive drug called Rituxin every 2 months for 2 years. I also have frequent blood work and CT scans to make sure the lymphoma is behaving itself.

I am 14 and have fibromyalgia and JIA and epilepsy I was put on Cymbalta to help my Fibromyalgia and it seemed to help for awhile but now just recently I have been having complete incontinence with my bladder and bowls and my body has been retaining urine its been going on for 4 weeks nonstop and I am now in depend dippers and that's really rough.
and it definitely caused some abdominal pain, though not in my liver/spleen area where I would've expected it...and it caused some pain near my neck/jaw. Ah, well. It was in the name of science. I just don't want it adversely affecting my results because that's the last thing I need at this point. Doctors are more likely to think I'm crazy than they are to actually re-order certain blood tests.
After the third day I started getting pins and needles in my right hand then it spread to both hands, chest and back and now down my legs. Most of body is now feeling numb and I've had all sorts of tests all of which came back clear. Sometimes my hands feel like they are on fire and feel swollen?? 2 weeks on and in and out of hospital still no change. I already take a multi vitamin b. does anyone have any answers, suggestions or ideas as to how to get my feeling bac?
but I have read the warning label regarding possible liver toxicity/damage...any opinion would be helpful..
Hence if both ankles are swelling then you will need to get heart function assessed by ECHO and EKG, get kidney and liver function tests done and get a complete blood picture for anemia. Low sodium in blood, hypothyroidism and malabsorption syndromes causing low protein in blood have to be looked into. I think you should discuss these possibilities with your doctor. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining.
I've been given flexaril 10mg, Naproxen 550mg , loratab 10mg, and meloxicam, steroid packs and steroid shot. My back inflames on the let side of my spine up to a inch and sometimes its upper or lower and one time it was an inch raised up inflammed all the way down my spine.It hurts!I have a curve in my spine and when this happens I get scared.Every joint in my body is arthritis,my body goes numb from my toes to my head.
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
HI, hoping someone can shed some light on my dear dog's illness. Sunny is a 3 1/2 year old Maltese x Shih Tzu & started being unwell a week ago. She didn't eat for 3 days & only had water on 1 day along with just laying in bed sleeping. She then started eating small amounts & drinking. At times she would seem her normal self, then a few hours later, be fatigued again & stay in her bed.

All these symptoms started a couple weeks after and when I went to my doctor he said it was maybe a rare case to where the Meloxicam may had lowered my blood count or caused liver damage. I have had a blood test run and everything showed up as normal. So I wasn't diagnosed with anything but I still have these symptoms regardless of what or even how much I eat and even if I sleep 6 hours or 10. Some days are less severe but they are still persistent.
