Is mobic narcotic

Common Questions and Answers about Is mobic narcotic


Avatar n tn The others here are better at explaining how long withdrawals last, what to expect, what to do, what to buy. It was 5 good days of the harder withdrawals off of lortab for me back when I quit it abruptly or as they say here, "cold turkey," or CT. I don't understand why your doctor didn't work up a plan to taper you off of the lortab. He had to know what you would go through.
Avatar m tn Yes you can take Mobic with a narcotic pain med. Mobic is a NSAID, and has the same risks as other NSAIDS. In high doses it can cause some kidney issues, the vicodin has tylenol in it and can cause some liver issues in high doses. But they are safe to take together. Typically what you want to watch for is multiple NSAIDS, or Multiple meds with tylenol.
Avatar m tn errrr I can be a little self destructive. Going back on a narcotic is not an option. My doctor was impressed that I was able to just stop cold turkey when he wanted me to wean. A few days ago, I decided I was in too much physical pain and started researching non-narcotic pain killers. My pain doctor prescribed Lyrica about a year ago, but I wanted to stick to my Hydro/Tram/Benzo cocktail at that time.
498385 tn?1362453004 and that is a choice chronic pain patients make and it is their choice...not everyone is an addict..i was/am...i found that inversion therapy has helped me tremendously...i also have scoliosis which caused DDD.. fusions and fighting not to have another fusion....narcotics only make u interpret pain differently...doesnt make it go away just interrupts the signals to the brain...
Avatar m tn just that suboxone can be given out-patient, any place dealing with narcotic addicition can tell your parents that what happened to you is exceedingly normal, unfortunately. you're too young to know now, but trust me they WILL want to know and do anything to help you. there is methadone too and i don't want to offend any fans, but all my research says that it has the longest withdrawals when time to get off it.
Avatar f tn As I'm sure you already know - it can sometimes take a while to find a new PM doc and also get an appointment, so in the meantime, I would suggest calling her office and letting them know that the Mobic is not helping and you'd like to find out about the possibility of getting something stronger.
Avatar f tn The tingling started out as just my face/hands and feet. Now it's my face/tongue/hands/arms/feet and legs and is constant. I've also just found a small pea sized hard lump on my stomach on the upper left side by my ribs. I've been to the er twice and they did a ct scan of my neck and head and said it was normal. I am absolutely miserable. Somebody please help me.
1935252 tn?1329760719 Thanks for your post -- I'm 12 days clean and facing knee surgery and I had the same question -- I went to the orthopedic just today and turned down Vic for a non narcotic -- Mobic, in any event I'm waiting for my MRI and results but I'm facing the same fear as you. In any event If I am given the pills I have a trusted person in waiting (my wife) to administer them when or if needed but I will try to avoid it all together if possible.
1155483 tn?1262436247 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, and all of them say not to take the medication for longer then 5 consecutive days and that it is not indicated for the treatment of chronic pain.
Avatar n tn All I can say is request some of the nuerontin from your doctor, a prescription strength pain pill, Ultram is non narcotic and works great, and also a muscle relaxer if they will. Mobic is also in my script list, it's a script strength anti-inflammatory, like Aleve, and works wonders, especially if you also have arthritis like me (at least that is confirmed by X-rays). I hope this helps and if you find out anything else, let me know!!!
513154 tn?1340228889 Tramadol is not classified as a narcotic, however, it is as close to narcotic as any other narcotic, so if you are looking for a non-habit forming drug or something with less side effect from a narcotic, Ultram/tramadol may not be the route to take. NSAID have been shown to be effective with osteoarthritis.
Avatar m tn the only thing i really need that i don't have is my anti-inflammatory med Mobic which is already starting to effect me since i am completely out of them...i am starting to get stiff and getting out of bed in the morning is starting to get really hard with out it. i do have a full bottle of Naproxen i think i can start taking in place of my Mobic...
1699107 tn?1307310296 I feel for you. Tramhater is right there are other things to help with pain, like Mobic. You may have rebound pain also, which is caused when you wd your body increases pain so take more pills.
Avatar m tn b) Toradol really helps when a stone is stuck or actively moving. It is an NSAID, not a narcotic so I prefer it. It is not safe to take more than 5 days at a time. The rest of the time I would take a demerol, if it did not help I would take a dilauded. If that did not work I would head to the ER. I have not had to rely on these lately!
356518 tn?1322267242 Meaning we can tolerate a larger dose and still function better than the person who breaks a leg and is prescribed a narcotic for the first time. So in that sense we build a tolerance. But if our pain stayed at the same level the 15mg's of what ever, would continue to ease the pain as well as it did the day it was prescribed. Think about it and it makes sense. Four years ago I didn't have significant trouble walking short distances.
Avatar f tn I dont necessarily need those kinds of meds, i just need something that works better. Is there a non narcotic that people have seen to work better than neurontin. Im actually off narcotics since January and actually would like it to stay that way because im finally clear headed and withdrawls are gone completely. Im happy to be off and narcotic free but the pain is so intense that i figured that there was no where else to turn other than Percocet again.
Avatar f tn I heard it causes seizures so does this mean it races your heart and why is it addicting if its not narcotic?I feel so upset because I am in real pain and Im scared to take anything. I have a broken chest, and ribs. I can barely breathe but I dont want to be tied to drugs! I was referred to acupuncture but i have to be on bed rest for a while. I might have to have open heart surgery again.....Im only 28 and a mama and wife. Please help with suggestions. Thanks so much!
182493 tn?1348056515 It really has no narcotic - you can't somehow get addicted to it? I wonder if it is safe in pregnancy, I will have to look into it.
182493 tn?1348056515 and I can go to bed at night without a heavy consious.. That is a good feeling. For a pain update to those who care.. My MRI is tommorrow.. so that is a huge step.. I am also making a new doc appt.. so that I can get a second opinion on this arthritis diaganosis.. At 26 you really don't want to have arthritis so bad that you are in pain 5 days a week and barely sleeping due to tension headaches.. Its effecting my job, my social life, my marriage..
Avatar n tn will agree to let me stop the narcotic pain meds and try to use the Mobic and epidurals. I really don't know what is worse-the steroids in the epidurals or staying on Percocet. It would be OK if I really felt it was helping, but I don't. I had a sciatica flare up about 3 months ago, and had to go on Oxycontin 20mg for a few weeks. There was total pain control with that, but I've been on that Oxy slippery slope many times before. It's not pretty.
Avatar n tn First, however, it may be a good idea to ask if ther is a non narcotic medicine you could get on for the pain. hydrocodoe is more of a last resort medicine, even if it isn't the strongest of the opiates.
Avatar f tn if so please give me all the suggestions. I need to take something NON NARCOTIC and Ibuprophen isn't cutting it...nor is the Calcium, Magnesium Zinc combo Ive been on for 3 months now???? HELP!!!????
Avatar n tn Went to a Back Pain management specialist several months later who prescribed Ultracet, Tizanidine, and Mobic with Massotherapy and Chiropractic adjusments. Medication and Manipulation provides some relief. However, I have continued to feel this pain for 14 months now. There is no numbness, shooting pain, or any pain in my legs. Simply muscular tension/pain in my thoracic area with a majority on the left side. It has never completely gone away, it swings from mild to moderate pain.
Avatar m tn What other medication is out there? It is so hard to get up in the moring because of the pain I have to crawl to the shower to have the warm water loosen me so I can do my fibro stretches in order to function. I have read some of the people who take narcs for the pain. Are you aware that narcs can make it worse? There have to be some other medication out there to help with fibro without the side effects of narcs.
Avatar f tn Oh and whatever you do, if your Dr. Suggests Tramadol, stay FAR away from that! Im not sure if you know if it, heard of it or used it but just wanted to make sure you steer clear. Alot of Dr.s are not yet educated on how bad this drug is and some think because its "non-narcotic" its safe but it is a devil of a pill and regardless of what they say, is very addictive!
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn I had to change doctors and my new doctor told me that tramadol is a narcotic, is very addictive, and does not help pain much and has too many side effects, including seizures. In May of 2008, Sweden moved it onto their controlled substances list as a narcotic. It stimulates the same MU receptors as narcotics do. I would dump it and try something else. Half a tablet won't do much for you...that is 25mg. You'll be fine, but I wouldn't take anymore.
Avatar m tn So, if you do not have GI bleeding or an ulcer, you may want to ask your doctor about other NSAIDS. Mobic (the generic name is meloxicam) is a great alternative, because it is generic and has less GI/ulcer problems than most of the NSAIDS. Ultimately, you should see what your doctor thinks is best for you. If your doctor insists on Celebrex, you may want to contact the company and see if they have any discount coupons that your pharmacy can process. Many companies do this.
Avatar n tn maybe it is weather changes--the arthritis one of my feet is hurting a little and i have a little pain in my fingers. we're in the midst of Idaho spring---you never know what you will have from one day to the next--or from one part of a day to the next!!
