Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam forum


Avatar n tn Hi windseakr, First, I want to welcome you to the PM (Pain Management) Forum and let you know that we are glad you found this Forum. 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.
11446816 tn?1418304166 So I was just prescribed 3 meds to start. One is Meloxicam for my joints. This one is the one I am most uncomfortable with because I had never heard of it. I took it about 30 minutes ago after breakfast. What should I expect. I know all people react different, but trying to find out if any one else has taken it and what your experience was like.
Avatar m tn Mostly I'd like to say hello to all on this forum. I'm already a member of the Anxiety and Depression forums. After two months, almost, of tests and seeing various doctors and specialist, I've been diagnosed with Osteo Arthritis in the lower back and right hip. For this I've been prescribed Meloxicam/Mobic for the pain and inflamation. The data sheet that came with the prescription details some pretty nasty potential side effects.

This is a great place to learn more and to gain support from others who suffer as well.
Avatar n tn ) First, I want to tell you that I'm so glad you found our PM (Pain Management) Forum here on MH ( MedHelp ). From what I have read the 15 mg's of Meloxicam is taken once a day, whereas the 800mg's of Ibuprofen is taken every 6 hrs OR as prescribed by your Doctor. From everything I've read those 2 doses seem to be the normal dosages given especially for arthritis. The 2 doses seem to be equal in effectiveness, depending on the person.
Avatar m tn Would it be safer to go back to Meloxicam or ask my Dr. about something like Celebrex instead? Thanks very much!
Business man2 mineral tablet (“A to Z” brand), - 1 raspberry keytone (sold by Walgreens), - 2 fish oil soft gels 1200mg (Walgreens brand) , - 2 ibuprofen (200mg each) usually, OR 2 acetaminophen (500mg each), OR 2 naproxen sodium (220mg each), OR 1 Rx meloxicam 15mg. (Pain killer taken for residual pain from knee being “scoped” 1/20/12) What is the doctor’s opinion?
Avatar n tn My treatment with *Remicade infusion (1 and after 2 weeks 1 more and 4 weeks after 1 again and now 1 every month since 3 months*, also l take methotrexate 6 pills once a week and 1 pill meloxicam by day. This treatment does not help me and the doctor asked me to see a neurologue !!! WHY?
Avatar m tn I have asked the MSK forum different questions and I am thankful for the information received. I will appreciate very much - if possible - to have more information about 3 main questions posted. MSK and painkillers (others than Methadone) a) What type of painkillers have you been on? b) What have been/is the results? Thank you.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! It is difficult to diagnose the cause of headaches on net. Sinusitis, refractive errors of the eye, migraine, cluster headaches, brain tumors, high blood pressure, temporal arteritis, pinched cervical spinal nerve, tension headaches, poor or disturbed sleep etc are several causes of headaches. Dental pain and ear ache can cause similar symptoms. Please consult a headache and migraine specialist to rule out these causes one by one. Take care!
Avatar m tn I have a screwed up back which lead me down this road,and sub does nothing for that so my doc put me on meloxicam. Which has clearly been eating a whole in my insides, classic symptoms of an upper gi bleed. So is all of this even worth it? Am i killing myself faster by taking meloxicam?
1573548 tn?1330460463 I've been on this forum for about a year now thinking what I had was a drug/pill addiction. I had chronic pain in every single part of my body! 2 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I was so happy to not feel crazy anymore. What I had/have...has a name. So, a couple weeks ago my dr started me on Amitriptyline 10mg, Meloxicam 15mg, and Tizanidine 4mg. Today I told her those are helping a TON with the night time pain/insomia. I told her I need something I can take during the day.
Business man2 In answering an earlier question of mine, Dr. Murphy previously said he prefers his patients do NOT take a NSAID regularly (Dr. Timothy P Murphy, M.D. Feb 25, 2013 in this Forum - "I try to have my patients take very little daily ibuprofen/naproxen as they can lead to kidney disease (based on total lifetime dose), ...").
518798 tn?1295215879 Anywhoo, he gave me a script for mobic and tramadol. I have never been prescribed either, but after reading this forum, I opted NOT to get the tramadol filled. I did get the mobic filled because I only take it once daily so I figured it would be okay. Any advice on this subject would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I was starting to feel better, starting to go off all pain meds except for my once a day Meloxicam, when my surgeon gave me the go-ahead to start weening off my crutches (so I am partially weight bearing now, as tolerated.) After my first week doing this, as well as my new therapy regimen as ordered by my surgeon, I am in more pain than I have been in for the last 5 weeks. I am also more swollen than I have ever been, and am icing for probably 18 hours out of 24.

Avatar n tn I have been tested for RA, lupus and gout. All have been negative. My doctor has had me on a trial perscription of pms-meloxicam, having already tried celebrex and naproxin. The meloxicam has been excellent for my feet and elbow but over the past two weeks my knee has taken a turn for the worse. As a matter of fact I found this forum this morning because I am home from work after being up all night with a throbbing pain and my mobility this morning is terrible.
Avatar f tn Currently she is taking 12.5 mg Methotrexate, 12.5 mg injections of Enbrel twice weekly and 7.5 mg of Meloxicam. She has been having temps of 99-101 for the last year and a half and thigh pain for 3 years. All the doctors conclude that this all may be her arthritis. I don't believe that. I am worried they are missing something. They have done 2 bone marrow biopsys and both have come back neg. But they were done with all of the medication in her.
735676 tn?1257575826 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.
1759292 tn?1313068190 Hi and welcome to the Chiari forum. Since we r all diff , we r also diff in which meds may or may not work...but for most chiari pain there is no med that really touches it. What we need to do is find a way to avoid triggering a flare up....avoid things u know will cause u pain, do things in moderation.... The best advice is to try a med for a long period to make sure u give it time to work...and keep a list of what u tried....
Avatar m tn I also receive 30 meloxicam per month for swelling and pain. Even with all these meds I'm still in pain. My knees, my hips, and my back. Some days I can't bend over to tie my shoes and if I bend over, I can't stand back up straight. I have gone back and forth to my VA doctors, but still no relief. I am so very tired of being in pain. I have been diagnosed with depression, I suffer from PTSD. I am a 54 year old veteran that is fed up with this system.
Avatar f tn Hi, I just found this forum and I like it! I'm looking for some advice. I'm 52. I have 12 yrs clean, my last thing was a 7 or 8 year heroin addiction. I have Hep C. I have severe arthritis as well as Peripheral Neuropathy, mostly affecting my feet, and plantar fasciitis. :( right!? 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?
Avatar m tn Syringomyelia is a very painful condition and many times it is one that drs just wait and watch as there is not too much they can do, Depending on size and where it is located they may not be able to use a shut or stent to move the CSF fluid. Were u checked for chiari? We do have a forum here on MedHelp for chiari and related conditions like syringomyelia.
Avatar f tn I saw another Dr a few weeks later who gave me Meloxicam and cyclobenzaprine - I took a higher dosage daily for about 3 weeks and it really helped. Had a lot less pain. Pressure left from my face, only occasional shooting spasm pain. She said my tension in my neck and shoulders was pretty bad and I even saw a dentist and wear a mouth guard.
Avatar f tn Do you have any rashes? Are both of the legs or arms affected or just one side? Have you tried naproxen? Meloxicam? Flexeril? Baclofen? Neurontin? Prednisone? I am currently taking 20mg's of prednisone three times a day to try to get my flare under control and I take neurontin for pain, although I have to admit it does not help much with the bone pain but helps with the muscle pain.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Usually conditions of heart, kidney, liver or low protein or severe anemia, which cause ankle swelling cause both ankles to swell. Hence if both ankles are swelling then you will need to get heart function assessed by ECHO and EKG, get kidney and liver function tests done and get a complete blood picture for anemia. Low sodium in blood, hypothyroidism and malabsorption syndromes causing low protein in blood have to be looked into.
Avatar n tn I know have the following drugs, Orphenadrine Citrate 100mg, Meloxicam 15mg, and Tramadol 50 mg. My question is I have always been in great health and I feel like I don't have a clear diagnosis. Should I go to therapy as he suggests OR should I request an MRI? One more think I am 44.
1605482 tn?1297868378 Right now, my pain management NL has me on Meloxicam and Tizanidine....with some, very limited, success. My next visit next week I'm scheduled for an Occipital Nerve Block. I'm excited to try this and I'll post how it works (for me, anyway!). Good luck with whatever path you decide to take....I can SO appreciate where you're coming from....
