Common Questions and Answers about How long does meloxicam take to work


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.
Avatar n tn If my symptoms are a result of an adverse reaction to meloxicam and I do have nerve damage, I just hope that it will get better and eventually go away. Does anyone else out there have any experience from nerve damage due to adverse reactions to any drug, and how did your recovery turn out over time and was there anything that helped? Thanks.
Avatar m tn In case anyone else has this problem, I want my experience to be available to them. There was very little to read on the DURATION of initial phenobarbital side effects on the web, and I was very frightened by what I saw. So, here's what happened with my dog. The side effects (which were severe) lasted approximately three weeks. It is possible that they can last this long. Most people say they go away in a day or two, but in very sensitive dogs, it takes much longer.
685623 tn?1283485207 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.
Avatar f tn I have Fibro and CFS and I take Lyrica/Cymbalta/Meloxicam/Vitamin D/Clonazepam/Propranolol (for Migraines)/Oxycontin/Prevacid plus a daily muti-vitamin and a bunch of Vitamin C. What works and what doesn't? Who the heck knows??? Not me. Sorry.
Avatar f tn but seriously. your story was to long to read and i think you need more than just this fourm to help you. talk to people your husband, family, friends explain it and if you really want help they will see that and u will be suprised how many of them will. but prepare yourself for the ones who wont too.
Avatar n tn I know that they can go back in and take out the plate and screws I just need to know what that does to the fusion site. Is it weaker? Can I live without this plate and screws at the site? I was told that the plate and screws was there to hold site together while it was fusing. I would appreciate any info that can be given to me.
1165896 tn?1263571386 Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. You can do this before breakfast/lunch/dinner or before bedtime or in bed.Remember to take deep long breaths into the lungs.You can do this while sitting on floor or chair or lying in bed. It is important to do this everyday with concentration and with eyes closed. It is February 2010, so your progress update in a few months will help so many others.
Avatar m tn If anyone has any useful advice, please help! No meds = miserable pain at work/unable to work Thanks ahead of time to any posters!
5792205 tn?1374360715 However, the cloud does lift-it does not take medication to think clearly. My progress on that is slow, but sure. I also use an anti-inflammatory diet, Tens, back brace belts, heating pads, Jacuzzi, and still get flareups. I am learning to manage the pain. It is not easy, but doable. I think my brain is learning to "turn it off". I was like you, sick of being so reliant on meds for one reason or another.
522415 tn?1242941355 Dont be ashamed of the meds you take or how much of them you take. The pain is real even tho there are those out there who will act like its not. I understand how you feel completely. I have very severe pain all the time. Im on the worst end of the FM spectrum. You have to remember that not all of us have the same amount of pain... Some with FM have pain that is more tolerable and there are those of us who can barely manage.
Avatar f tn I know your not where you want to be just yet but it does no go to get upset or nervous about how you have to live in today....I spent way to much of my recovery waiting to feel better...or waiting for a particular symptom to ez you start excepting where your at and not fighting it your recovery will become a lot ezer...just look at each thing you go thew as one more part of the puzzle you have to piece together to get back to normal ..
Avatar f tn Did I read you correctly that this reaction happened after you LOWERED the dose? If so, how long after lowering the dose did this began to happen? And how long has this been going on? Is the tightness in the throat only when eating? Does he have any stomach problems?
975514 tn?1325001538 I sure do hope that it becomes FDA approved sooner than later. New medications for FM and CFS-ME take a long time to work their way through the system. It's very sad for those who suffer, and now with the recent discovery of the XMRV retrovirus, I hope new alternatives will become available to treat the infected people properly.
982333 tn?1305792489 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. She also said she was about 75% sure about what was wrong with me, just by listening to my symptoms and doing a physical exam, and just needed a blood test to confirm.
605877 tn?1301704246 It's safe for you to take medications since you've been exposed to a benzene material. You should not have any adverse affects as a result of this. The benzene you were exposed to has long since left your system and there likely aren't any remains of it--including damage done to your body. The nausea you're feeling may be related to the chest pain you're feeling from the costochondritis.
Avatar f tn Just know this is part of recovery and sooner or later you will balance back. Some takes week but I know for the long time users the Brain will take a lot longer to find it's balance. Try taking that warm bath with Epsom salt and make sure you eat very Healthy. Try to avoid caffeine & sugars at first. Your nervous system goes crazy and you do not want to stimulate it more.
168348 tn?1379360675 I have switched to Mobic (brand name for Meloxicam) NSAID. 15mg pill. Took first one last night. So far ok with Synthroid that I took an hour ago. Only thing is that not much pain relief ??? but I wonder if it "builds up" in my system .... I am hoping that it is going to work as taking it once a day is nice vs. 3X for the other one with side effects of dizziness/tired with the Synthroid. Being time-released is nice even dosing 24hrs long.
Avatar f tn After Enbrel came along, my rheumatologist and I discussed it and decided to add it to the mtx to see if my flares would completely stop, and I'm happy to say that they have. No two people with RA respond the same way to the same meds, though. Mtx is a good medication on its own, and the good news is that it combines well with a number of newer medications so there's a good chance some combination will work for you.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 53. This thread is full of helpful and kind people who want to help you get off this terrible drug. Please snuggle in and make yourself comfy. I know you can do it!
10977101 tn?1414282594 he was nice to listening my symptoms and ordered me to get blood work done to check my hormones and get an ultrasound done. my thyroid hormone was normal and my prolactin level was a little bit high. and my ultrasound showed that i had an 8 mm cyst on my left ovary. so he wrote me a referral to see an obgyn and to get an MRI done to check my pituitary gland. in the mean time he prescribed me meloxicam for pain. i met my new obgyn.
Avatar f tn 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.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tramadol Warriors! We're all so glad to see you here. This is the place to be if you are trying to recover from Tramadol ... Please make yourself at home!
Avatar f tn I was only on them for a little over a year, but I took a lot of them, it made me feel like I was on top of the world, first I took hem for pain, then for a high, I stopped last Thursday and it was just terrible, I hated everything and felt like I'd never be the same again, but I do feel better now, everybody withdrawals differently, especially depending on how long you've been taking them, I hear hydrocodone withdrawal don't last too too long, but you do still have cravings and I'd recommend NA
1198664 tn?1368651412 I guess I am just screwed now?! This really blows. How do we deal with this now? I would like some long timers maybe to help with this one. Give me some advice or something. I took 4 Advil before the work and 2 tylonol after but yeah. I really wish I would not have turned into a damn out of control addict with this stuff because they did help when not abusing them. But I know :( On the bright side 30 is right around the corner! And I have not had ANY real cravings this entire time.
5082295 tn?1371254511 My doctor gave me Flexeril 10 mg and he told me to take 1/2 pill. But I was afraid to take it because he told me it will make me really sleepy and I had to work next day. I cut it in like 6 pieces and still knocked me down the first day that I woke up at 11 am and was late for work. Now my doctor gave me Flexeril 5mg and I cut them in 4 pieces and that works fine without feeling sleepy next day.
712042 tn?1254572809 I did not have any disease in my heart ( no heart attack, no clot, no valve problem, no stent to place or vessel to by-pass) but a rather new to medicine diagnosis of severe cardiac endothelial microvascular dysfunction otherwise know as cardiac syndrome X.
Avatar m tn If you ever start taking them as a recreational past time, or abuse them, then you will pay for it in the long run, cramps, headaches, depression, diarhia, vomiting, and more! What it all boils down to is, there is a reason they say to only take one every 6 to 8 hours AS NEEDED, for pain..... this is to help you from becoming dependant upon them, and also helps them do their job more efficiantly.
