What is meloxicam taken for

Common Questions and Answers about What is meloxicam taken for


If that is what it is used for then it's not working on me, I am trying to detox from methadone, so I can try other pain treatments, and I still have severe withdrawal symptoms.
So I was just prescribed 3 meds to start. One is Meloxicam for my joints. This one is the one I am most uncomfortable with because I had never heard of it. I took it about 30 minutes ago after breakfast. What should I expect. I know all people react different, but trying to find out if any one else has taken it and what your experience was like.
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.
For this I've been prescribed Meloxicam/Mobic for the pain and inflamation. The data sheet that came with the prescription details some pretty nasty potential side effects. I normally don't have too much trouble with meds but this stuff is potent. What have been your experiences with this med? I'm also on Paxil, 10mgs per day, and Methlyne, 15mgs per day, for the depression and anxiety problems. Thx in advance for all your replys. Thom.
I did continue the Meloxicam for about a week until I finally connected the 2 together and stopped taking it. It had ceased working for the chest pain at that point in any case. What is more alarming,is that the Neuropathy has Steadily continued to get worse ever since and from what little I can find on this side effect, it is sounding like this is a Permanent Problem that may well end with killing me. And there is Nothing that can be done to counter this effect.
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.
I had to stop it by the 5th day because the side effects were awful and that pill almost killed me. As far as I know this medication (Mobic) is prescribed for arthritis. For pain I took a muscle relaxer Flexeril and it worked since the first day I took it. In 2 days I was pain free in my neck, arms and shoulders after having non stop pain and numbness for months.
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.

(Pain killer taken for residual pain from knee being “scoped” 1/20/12) What is the doctor’s opinion?
Hi Manderin, welcome to the forum. This is a great place for advice and support. I have never personally taken Tramadol, but there are folks here who have, and hopefully they will weigh in with some info and advice. Tramadol does have an antidepressant component in it, and should be tapered due to the risk of seizures if suddenly stopped. We are not allowed to give you any specific taper schedule because we are not doctors and do not know your medical history. However, slow and steady is key.
You have gotten through all those other things in your life, you can get through this too, but the severity of the situation is not to be taken lightly. Now that you are beginning to see what the pills have done to your life, and the control they have taken on your mind and body do you want to get off of them? If you do, then you should not be ashamed to tell the people around you.
It is really funny how I got diagnosed with fibromyalgia. You know when you are in so much pain, it helps to laugh so I'll share this story with you. I was getting ready for a drs. appointment with my primary care doctor. I teach 4th grade, so I have all kinds of cute notepads for holidays, etc. It was nearing Christmas, so I had a full bodied Santa Clause notepad that I had been using to send notes to parents and such.
And every test is another month to six weeks of waiting. It is very frustrating. Thank You very much for your advise and I hope your son has found relief.
The pain medication to stop my pain is not working. The medication is Meloxicam 7.
spel lastsfrom 30 min to an hour and a haf with spasms coming every 20 seconds, My surgeon is weaning me off the percocet and I wiil get 15 or the the final 10. I have been tapering but during the time the drug has left my system the pain in horrible. Does ayone think 30 mg of codene will hel when I a off the pain and wihle detoxing.
Sometimes heat packs also help - at least for a little while. I don't know what the strength of the naproxen is that your doctor prescribed, but I know that the over the counter medication Aleve also contains naproxen - again I don't know at what strength though. It's possible that maybe if the dose of naproxen your doctor gave you is a bit strong for you with your blood pressure, using the otc Aleve might help that and still give you some pain control.
I have been on Topamax for 2.5 years now for Seasonal Affective Disorder(SAD). The current dose is 400mg for more than half that time. Many years ago I was on Lithium and gained 200lbs during the 6 year period that I was taking it. But after I went off the drug and went to a natural regimen, found that my body would not allow me to lose any substantial amount of weight without gaining it back. I carried this weight for 15 years.
It might be worthwhile to make a call to your doctor's office and see if they ran any other tests besides TSH, and if so, get the results from the last several. For comparison, it would be interesting to see what your FT3 and FT4 levels were before your TSH started to go up and what they were through the two increases. FT3 and FT4 (FREE T3 and FREE T4, which are different from total T3 and total T4) should be ordered every time you have labs.
I have been taking 7.5mg of Meloxicam for four days and 400mg of Norfloxacin for one day. I have had an all day extremely severe headache. I have taken Meloxicam previously without getting headaches. Would this be likely caused by one of these drugs or interaction and how should I proceed please?
It is almost impossible for me to be in a room where there is a ceiling fan or any kind of fan blowing, as my eyes get so dry I cannot stand it.....(Sjorgren's???) Are my ANA levels comparable to yours??? And what does "plaquinel" treat (sounds like a cholesterol medication?!!!)?
My LDH cholesterol was a little out of range, though, which is very odd for someone my age (and especially odd because I'm a fairly healthy eater/active person). My BUN was on the very low end of the normal range, as was the pH of my urine...which I thought was interesting, because I've been experiencing some slight abdominal pain as of late, and some other general gastrointestinal issues.
What may work for one may not for the other, as well as what may work for you may not with something similar. It is also good to find out what is causing for you to feel worse (even with the medications) and just to talk to your doctor about it. I don't know of anything that works for my fibro problems, but everyone is different.
My neurologist did not tell me what medications of the 9 he just prescribed for me that I could take together and that I couldn't take together. I took Meloxicam this morning for my "mild" headache, but over the course of the day my headache has gotten severly worse. I took what my notes said to do for my "migraines" and took Cambia...I just researched that these two things are not supposed to be taken together...am I in big trouble?
Has anyone been to a pain management clinic? My doctor doesn't want me on narcotics long term (and neither do I!) so he's referred me to pain management. I have no idea what to expect. I've taken (without help) gabapentin, meloxicam, ibuprofen, tramadol, lortab (5, 7.5, & 10) and can't take excedrin and tylenol has never worked. I've also had 8 weeks of physical therapy and the chiropractor (not simultaneously) with no relief.
I have done PT, bracing and taken so many NSAIDs that they no longer work. Meloxicam didn't even make a difference. Mom doesn't want me to have surgery. Is there anything else I can do?
Keep a log of all of her symptoms and as much detail as you can on where she hurts and what kind of pain it is. As frustrating and exhausting as it is, I encourage you to keep pursuing a diagnosis. Change doctors and hospitals. Have you talked to other parents or to a GP to find out who in your area is the best diagnostician? Please keep us posted and let us know how we can support you.
The area of collapsed lung may become infected because bacteria and white blood cells can build up behind (to the inside of) the blockage. Infection is particularly likely if atelectasis persists for several days or more. If atelectasis persists for months, the lung may not easily re-expand." --Taken from: http://www.merck.com/mmhe/sec04/ch048/ch048a.html I'm not going to guess, but take what you will from reading the above.....
with the news that the Philadelphia Eagles have signed Michael Vick for the upcoming season. His return is conditional and he is going to be mentored by Tony Dungy during this rehabilitation and reassessment time. As you recall, Vick was found guilty for his involvement with a large dog fighting ring run from his property in Virginia (Bad Newz Kennels). He has spent 18 months behind bars and was released earlier this year.
but for most chiari pain there is no med that really touches it. What we need to do is find a way to avoid triggering a flare up....avoid things u know will cause u pain, do things in moderation.... The best advice is to try a med for a long period to make sure u give it time to work...and keep a list of what u tried....
I also have GREAT concerns about pain control. What should I ask my doctor for?? I have taken vicodin for 10 yrs to manage pain r/t arthritis, fibromyalgia. I also take meloxicam (but have had to stop in preparation for cystoscopy) When I had my hip replaced I WOKE DURING SURGERY B/C of EXCRUCIATING PAIN. This terrifies me and has prohibited me from having other hip replaced. Is there anything that can be done to minimize pain, complications and stenting.
