How does mobic work

Common Questions and Answers about How does mobic work


Avatar n tn Does anyone know if mobic is addictive? My doctor switched me to them today from loratab. I am glad because the loratab really is addictive and I would rather not have my body relying on anything. I have been on the loratab for a little over a year now and I feel like crap if I miss a day and go without it. Not only am I in pain (because of female problems and my back) but I feel like I have the flu. How long will I feel that way without it? since I switch my meds today.
635402 tn?1270166077 They are trying Meloxicam usually just called Mobic. I looked it up, it doesn't say anything about being for pain, but it is an anti inflammatory med, so I wondered if anyone else had experience with this medication. It is good for slowing down my osteoporosis so that's good.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
5082295 tn?1371254511 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?
Avatar m tn since I am not on Remicade, I as able to obtain some Mobic. for some reason, Mobic does not seem to work the way it did before, some days when I take mobic, it works like a Charm, but some days I am in extreme pain. I also purchase some over the counter arthritis pain relief medicine, but I'm not taken much of it. the question I have is why does medicine work will one day and other days, it does not work at all? Thank you very much.
650738 tn?1247129608 30 times stronger than morphine and is as close to actual heroin as you can get but it does work. As with any will eventually develop a tollerance to the fentanyl and will have to increase your doseage...we are all in the same boat.

Avatar f tn I take 400mg/25mg ultram every morning to take alittle of edge of. I trying fish oil. Is there anything else. I am trying to work but getting harder and harder. I have bills to pay I have to work. I plan going to nursing school (my dream) next April. Someone tell me something good.
Avatar m tn In my opinion it's 10% physical and 90% mental. Keep thinking about how your life was before the pills and how wonderful it's going to be after. We are all here if you need support or encouragement. Stay strong, stay positive and God Bless....
Avatar n tn My husband is not a very understanding person either. Will the suboxone work for me or not with the fentanyl patch. Does anyone know. One thing I do know is that you have to be in W/D before you can use the suboxone I read here somehwere that with fentanyl Subutex is a better choice. Does anyone know for sure. Isn't their any way for mylan to help with this problem? It is horrible that just because you try a drug to see if indead it will help you with the pain you are a user forever.
Avatar f tn Did he test for Celiac disease? Try taking calcium at night and magnesium in the morning. Take L-arginine to improve circulation. Try a whole food supplement. Eat more vegetables and lean ground meat or fish. Take zinc. Take L-glutamate and a probiotic.
Avatar n tn How long until I start to feel better? I am off of work for a week (I planned this to coincide with my vacation). I would have gone into a detox or something but I have no one to take care of my house, etc.
Avatar m tn I am SOO open to any advice and suggestions seeing as how the remainder of my life hinges on me finding relief somewhere!! I have many more MRI images I can provide if these are insufficient.
192055 tn?1263559137 So pretty much, If I take Mobic in the morning and have pain at night, I can't take any more meds. Does anyone have a good idea of a med that is not habit-forming, something that will work good, and something I can take every day? THanks!
522415 tn?1242941355 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.
Avatar f tn so I don't think the relafen has started to work yet. How long does the relafen take to start working... how many weeks? And why did the mobic stop working? Is that normal? I'm wondering if my osteoarthritis is getting worse... or what's going on? Doctor did lab work... so if I had rheumatoid arthritis instead of osteo... would that show up in lab? I'm only 45.. was first diagnosed with osteoarthritis around 40... is that young for that?
Avatar f tn I dont go to Dr til Mon the 9th. I am currently taking Mobic. I was just curious about OTC meds other than Advil. I will update after Dr appt.
Avatar n tn We are all CP (Chronic Pain) Patients that help each other with our own expertise and experiences that we have developed through our own CP Issues. Meloxicam (Mobic) is most commonly used for reducing pain, inflammation and joint swelling associated with different forms of arthritis. It's in the family of NSAID's medications. As far as I know it's not a muscle relaxer. I hope this has been of some help to you...........
Avatar n tn My 20 yr old daughter was diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis a year ago, but her problems started when she was 16. She would be fine for a few months, then have very painful flares and shortness of breath. We went to numerous specialists, but she just seemed so healthy with her normal blood work and appearance that they all said it was hypermobility causing her hip pain and anxiety causing the shortness of breath.
168348 tn?1379360675 No surprises @ the appt I am sure . Basically cause I am on Mobic every day so he sees me ev 3mos or he won't give me renewals on the med. My latest bloodwork was fine.
Avatar n tn About two years ago I went to an ENT with a reccouring sinus infection...was told I have drainage problems as well as allergies...had sinus surgury in Sept 2006 to help with this problem...I still feel like i have a sinus infection, my CT came back normal with slight maxilary sinus congestion...I was then referred to a neuroligist because my headaches became more and more just facial face hurts constantly...was diagnosed with tension headache and my MRI came back normal....
570413 tn?1299536261 I wanted to recommend those of you that are having trouble with family and friends not understanding how living with Chronic pain/conditions work. If you will Google "Spoon theory", you will find a sight by a patient that lives with Chronic pain. She doesn't have Chiari, but rather Lupus, which has some similarities in symptoms. This has helped me to understand a little better, what my daughter lives with each and every day. I hope this is helpful to some of you!
Avatar m tn 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?

176838 tn?1211463974 I am a 31 year old female and I recently saw a fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue specialist for a myriad of complaints including fatigue, headaches, joint & muscle pain. He thinks I might have sleep apnea which would account for some of my symptoms but not all. I have some of the pressure points for fibromyalgia but not a full 11.
