Meloxicam class

Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam class


Avatar m tn Hi there! I was just prescribed meloxicam 15mg for arthritis along with prilosec for acid reflux. I was wondering if you could tell me if meloxicam would be better for pain relief compared to 800mg ibuprofen. Also does it take time for meloxicam to build up in my body for maximum benefit? If so, how long does it take? Thanks very much!
Avatar n tn are there any class action lawsuits on meloxicam? I have a bleding ulcer as a esult of taking meloxicam.
Avatar f tn I'm very lightheaded and occasionally get a numb feeling at the top of my head, my cheeks and my tongue. This morning, I ate toast and drank a half cup of coffee before going to class and I had to leave half way through because I was seeing spots, had severe, PIERCING stomach pain and my heart was RACING. I was tested for celiac disease (I use to be incredibly thin, with the same stomach pains), and the results were negative + no malabsorption problems. Vitamin levels are fine.
Avatar m tn I'm 53 and I have been battling with pimple type festing bumps in my head, behind ears back of neck in hair line. I was and clean up daily. I have fought several Staph infestion over the last 3 years, never had it before that. I've been to GP, and Dermertoglist. I will add my Rx, and med history below. Every time the Dr. would put me on Antibotics for my staph, and about a 1-1 1/2 all the bumps in my head would clear up. After about 2 weeks after stopping they would come back.
Avatar f tn There is a medication in the same class as Aleve and Ibuprofen (NSAID's) called Meloxicam. It is much easier on the stomach than the other NSAID's. Just a suggestion.
Avatar m tn I move frequently so it's really hard to find a doctor who will prescribe me the only medication that has helped (in the benzo class). I work outdoors, so staying out of the sun is not an option, but I don't really fit diagnostic criteria for lupus so I don't suspect that is the problem.
Avatar n tn Has anyone used Imitrex for headaches, and with what result? Or what have you found to be effective for these migraine-class headaches that OTC's don't help? I take Lortab for them now, but it makes me so drowsy I can't function. So I wondered what any of you had found to work well. Also, what about for muscle pain?
Avatar n tn but there may be some others in this drug class that are as effective but less addictive). Again, thank you for taking the time to post.
Avatar n tn she thinks it is bringing on heavy tension head aches. So she prescribed Meloxicam (anti-inflamatory ). 2- When I inquired about the severe headach and scary eye spasms in the middle of the night, she said that I have allergies. She thinks this has contributed to the pressure behind the left eye and deep down in the left ear. My old Dr treated me once for allergies.
Avatar m tn Started to come up with different treatment for pain, something that involves various injections (thoradol) and nerve blocks (head). He also gave me Meloxicam for pain, it is an anti-inflammatory. Also, he gave me a tranquilizer and heart blood pressure med for shakes and heart palpitations. This thing works! I was taking 50mg and after taking blood pressure and tranquilizer meds, didn't even finish that, stopped at 40! And today, it's 4:45PM I only took 10mg!
Avatar f tn I also take Pristiq (150 mg/morning), then as you know the Concerta (108 mg/morning), Abilify (15 mg/night) and Epival (1000 mg/night). I also take Meloxicam and Tramadol as needed. But I rarely bother with the Tramadol as it barely does anything for my pain.
Avatar n tn Cymbalta shouldn't be given unless a psychiatrist thinks appropriate, it threw me right into a Bipolar episode - and I was told this class of drugs can make you even worse. Now that I am on better meds, for the most part my pain has gone way down, I had no clue that depression can cause so much physical pain. Be honest with all of your behaviours, because I had no clue that some, which I thought were in no way part of BP were.
Avatar n tn Also if she is or has been on an acid reducer usually called a ppi, ask about an alternative. There are class action lawsuits due to kidney problems the can cause. Also, Google chinese med acupuncture and kidney problems. In some instances these modalities have worked wonders. And stop any food w food colors.
Avatar f tn It is a very painful disease and I've yet to find a pain med to help it. Including meloxicam and ibuprofen 800.. you can also do physical therapy. Like accupunture to help relieve some pain.. I hope this is useful. And please from my experience don't let it go.
Avatar f tn I continue to ballroom dance, do aerobic exercise, aqua fitness for the pain in my muscles 1 hr. class in warm water, watch the foods I eat and switched to eating organic food as much as possible. I have never felt so energetic as I do now even before I got fibromyalgia. Stretching every day is very important. Food: I switched to rice milk, whole grains, brown rice (not white), organic fruit, smoothies, unpasturerized honey for a sweetener and increased my fish intake.
Avatar m tn ,but i take meloxicam,skelaxin,vicodin to work .i have arthritis in neck the meloxicam is great with that..i tryed for aweek to stop all mrd and was so stiff and headaches came back..the doctors said they couldn't conferm that the headaches came form the neck..even tho they stoped after surgery.don't know what school he went to..also had elbow surgery after that..neck surgery was suppose to have fixed that but didn't..
Avatar m tn further establishing my understanding that the (admittedly unstated) OTC product is not in the same class as regulated pharmaceuticals. If there was ever any doubt that publicly-available OTC remedies are not in the same class as government-sanctioned physician-prescribed FDA pharmaceuticals, let it be known now. Otherwise, let's get on with the purpose of this thread. The title of this thread is "Raw thyroid: Any drawbacks?
Avatar m tn I can ride my bike 10 miles at a time and am taking a reform Pilate's class. Even though I am more active, my leg twitches less. You are all in my thoughts. I hope this helps.
975514 tn?1325001538 My annoyance was compounded by the fact that the drug sample that he gave me, savella, is a SNRI which, as I did know, were a class of drugs used to treat depression. I knew I wasn't depressed and had had bad experiences before with being prescribed them based on past misdiagnoses of depression as the etiology of my pain. however, I gave the new doctor the benefit of the doubt and tried the savella and my pain vanished almost immediately.
Avatar n tn My immediate thoughts were stress as I am currently under a lot and while trying to deal with the stress I started working out at the gym. This week however, I tried out a intense cardio class that lasted 1 hour. Lots of dance style motions and I did not have on the right shoes. My feet hurt bad, but that went away in 1 day. The second day is when I noticed the humming/vibration. Trying not to freak-out I begin to research and ended up on this blog.
Avatar n tn I tried a NSAID (non steroidal anti-inflamatory drug) called meloxicam, which does little to nothing except make me feel strange. I am still trying the drugs. At this point, I am reasonably sure that a nerve is spasming for some reason and the possible causes of the spasms are brain farts (epileptic like events or migrain like events) of some sort, a bone spur, muscle tension, a blood clot that acts like a bone spur by impinging the nerve somehow.
Avatar n tn like this is a funny story but a few days ago i was sitting in class i sneezed and felt like someone was stabing and burning me in my taint it ws so bad i fell out of my seat and rolled around for a bout 10 seconds haha. Then later that day i was in the bathroom and soon as i got done peeing i droped to my knees from the pain it seems to get worse and worse each time and i cant take it anymore..
Avatar n tn I feel OK now, thanks to the anti-inflamatory pills (MELOXICAM 7.5 mg) actually pain went away next day. But how long I can take pills?? Still waiting for blood test results from rheumatologist (appointment next wek), need to make x-rays of my knee and both hands. I think about taking MELISA test, still waiting for referal from dentist. The worst for me are costs.
