Meloxicam and heart attack

Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam and heart attack


Avatar m tn Brief History - Stent in Aortic artery - had 90% blockage - No heart attack... Have constant swelling in feet/calves... wear surgical stockings, but the swelling is stubborn. I take Atenolol 50 mg, and Losartin 50 mg - both for Blood Pressure, and also Clopidogrel 75 mg for Stent My doctor just prescribed Meloxicam 15 mg for what I would assume is for inflammation. He only wants to go for 3 Months.
Avatar m tn One time right after taking the 15mg Meloxicam pill it started at about 9 pm and lasted all next day but I was active and did not feel any other heart attack like symptoms only this abnormal feeling with anxiety. Its been about 60 hours after the last 15gm Meloxicam pill and I did not have an episode last night so I am hoping its the cause. My blood work is normal BTW.
2207073 tn?1338935516 And nobody has bothered to look into any of those interactions and effects. It all started with a heart attack , then got a little depressed, developed some indigestion, experienced back pain, got a little constipated, couldn't sleep well at night and the rest is history. He's never going to enjoy his life again, like before. This is what your drug interaction report shows: Significant - Monitor Closely! duloxetine (cymbalta) + meloxicam duloxetine (cymbalta), meloxicam.
Avatar m tn I put it off until late october/early november everything happened all at once, the pain was so strong i thought i was having a heart attack and the panic attack only made it worse so i rushed to the ER, had various test such as a blood test, urine test, EKG and checked my blood pressure and everything came back normal and i was sent home.
Avatar m tn You may be justified for your opinion of the ddrug in question. Meloxicam can increase your risk of life-threatening heart or circulation problems, including heart attack or stroke. Do not use this medicine just before or after having heart bypass surgery (also called coronary artery bypass graft, or CABG). Seek emergency medical help if you have symptoms of heart or circulation problems, such as chest pain, weakness, shortness of breath, slurred speech, or problems with vision or balance.
Avatar f tn The headaches and pain in your jaw and face could be TMJ I was a dental assistant for 24 years before I had disc problems and a dentist would be able to diagnose it , it would be worth a shot.. I get heart palpatation's and had to wear a halter monitor and was told I had an extra heart beat and that's why i got them. As far as anxiety could be caused by stress I take ativan for them.If it was me as far as the pain in your arms you should get an MRI to rule out any disc problems .
Avatar f tn statin (Cholesterol), and Gabapentin (nerve pain in my knees but it is not any kind of opioid) and Meloxicam (inflammation of knees). HELP! I don't know how to interpret my numbers and not sure my drs are on top of this at all. They have had plenty of time to get me regulated but have failed.
Avatar m tn I'm worried about the side effects which include upset stomach and stomach ulcers, and heart attack or stroke. I've had diahrea off and on for the last week and don't want to agrivate it with anything else.
Avatar n tn I discovered that stretching helps when I fell and did a split while in a severe attack of this pain.. I almost passed out and then crawled into the house thinking I would have to call an ambulance the next morning. To my surprise I woke up with at least 50% less pain the next morning. I am fixing to try a chiropractor, and acupuncture, but not both at once. I always like to know which one makes the most difference.
Avatar f tn He put me on acyclovir 800 mg 2 times a day and 15mg of meloxicam 1 x a day and gave me a sample pack of a pain medicine I can't remember the name of it. This is a surgeon in my area he is a very good doctor. He says my cold sores and my stress are directly related to my severe stomach/abdominal pain. I had gastric bypass surgery last June 2011 before this I never had much stomach pain or cold sores.
Avatar m tn They were more concerned about the humming and the heart throb is worse. I can push on the vein in my neck and it will stop. I am sitting here typing and it is loud. Ugh, no one seems to know what to do. I have checked blood pressure and it is mostly fine.
Avatar f tn Frequently I get a pain in my right lower rib when I hunch forward or move my upper body. It is worse when i'm sitting down and bend over. It doesn't hurt all the time and comes in and out. But when it does hurt, it hurts for a long time.
712042 tn?1254572809 I'm ok now but not fine. 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 Also, NSAIDS reduce blood flow to the kidneys and over time will destroy your kidneys if you don't have a stroke or heart attack first! So, you have to ask yourself: "Hmmm, which one do I want--pain relief and a better quality of life now or a longer pain-filled life?" It's a hard decision.
873261 tn?1241693621 I was diagnosed with lupus about a year ago and starting about a month ago I would get these chest pains but they'd only last about 15min then 3 days ago I got this horid chest pains and this time it hasn't gone away, I went to the ER and they did a bunch of tests on my heart and checked for a pulmerary embilism and they came back negative. I believe I do have pleurisy other then the fact he my pain is in the middle of my chest rather then on one side.
735676 tn?1257575826 and those are just the ones I can remember off the top of my head. I have meloxicam (7.5 mg) that I take for the pain and I was taking Zonisamide (100 mg) twice daily but that is not helping me either. I am missing entire days/weeks due to this constant pain and am basically at my wits end. I have a neurologist that I have been seeing, but she seems more intent on passing me pills when I really want to try and find out what is causing this. I normally get about 2 migraines a week.
Avatar n tn I had to stop taking that because I started having tingling feelings in my hands, feet, and chin while on it. He also gave me Meloxicam, but I had the same reaction to that. I was also on Claritan during all this. My problem is I seem to be tired all the time. I sleep well but I don't feel anything like I did before that day. I finally stopped taking all meds and I seem to be feeling a little better. I have a lot of pain in my ribs, upper back, and around my chest plate.
Avatar n tn I'm a single mom and I keep thinking what if I'm about to have a heart attack? I'm very overweight and am desperate to lose, but like another message-poster, I'm afraid if I start exercising, I might drop dead! Does anyone know what exactly causes these? Can they be associated with anxiety and/or depression? If it's "normal", why doesn't everyone have them? Thanks everyone for listening.
Avatar n tn In case anyone on Vioxx has not heard, it's been pulled off the market worldwide (Thursday) because it has been found to double the chance of strokes or heart attack AFTER 18 MONTHS OF USE. If you have taken it for shorter time, don't freak out! I'm on day 2 of my new med, meloxicam 7.5 mg ("Mobic" from Boehringer-Ingelheim), and so far it seems more potent than the Alleve. Is this the placebo effect? It's an NSAID with something added to prevent the GI problem.
487969 tn?1249316891 Well - I had a bad morning so far today and can not wrap my head around what is wrong with this body of mine since my "normal" blood is always normal. Today I am getting numbness / tingles in the outer fingers (ring & pinky) in both hands that travels up the outer / side arm (and under) and on my left arm, stops at the elbow. On my right, it goes to the shoulder. It feels like something crawling at times, I don't understand it.
Avatar f tn I suggest you to try some light NON STEROID ANTI-INFLAMATORY medication like MELOXICAM and protect your stomach and esophagus by drinking yougurth and a treatment of OMEPRAZOL 20mg for 2 weeks. If you feel better after this, then means that I was right and then everything has to do with that discomfort you're feeling. Blessings. Metacomet Note: Check with your doctor optionally about this, I'm only suggesting based in my own experience. But maybe could work for you.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Friends, Welcome! Please make yourself at home ... snuggle down by the fire and hang on. It's a bumpy ride.
534785 tn?1329595808 I've added Meloxicam and Topamax to the list, but I've cut back on taking Meloxicam and just learned to live with the joint aches/pains. My spleen and liver are both swollen now, according to my GP, and I read somewhere online that this can cause the sinuses to become maybe this is what happened with mine. I also discovered from my CT scan that I have atelectasis in my left lung (the swelling in my neck is on the right side, go figure), which is a little disturbing...
Avatar f tn At the time, I didnt think it was an anxiety attack, but thought i was dying of a heart attack. I became lightheaded, dizzy, weak and couldnt even stand up. My heart was beating out of my chest and I called 911 bc I was alone and truly thought I was going to die right then and there. Going to the hospital, they did not say it was anxiety to begin with. They thought I was dehydrated, but nothing more severe than that.
Avatar m tn I experienced pain from my left and right side of my chest that traveled from time to time to my neck, back, and abdomen. At one time I thought I was having a heart attack up until I burped and passed gas and it relieve the pain. Another time I had a lot of pressure into my face and I felt some wind escape through my left ear. I took OTC Prilosec and it helped.
