Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam how long does it take to work


Avatar m tn I am unable personally to take the drug as it is a NSAID and unfortunately for me I am allergic to all nsaids. I hope others reply to your post. I know with all drugs there are side effects. I always review a drug or cream before I used it. I know my Rhumatologist gave me some rx cream but after I read the very fine print i realized it was also an nsaid. It would have been dangerous for me to apply it!!
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 He shows no sign of affection/emotion, etc and has been on it a week and a half. I see that it can take a few weeks for a dog to get used to the new side effects. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how we can keep him safe during this time? He is an indoor dog and bc of his bathroom issues right now we leave him in the kitchen all the time. But even then, if he pees on the floor he is stepping in it and falling (we have tile floors).
685623 tn?1283485207 As long as he is keeping to the straight and narrow, I suppose that it is only fair that we let him do his job (play football) and leave it at that. With a mentor like Tony Dungy, I think Michael has a better than average chance of staying true to his word and working to help resolve some of the damage he has done. For those of you who don't know Coach Dungy, he was here in Indianapolis for many seasons coaching the Colts.
Avatar f tn I think his body is just use to it and it won't work anymore. I am trying to talk him into getting on a new pain med cause I really hate to see him in pain all the time (like me). I have alot of face pain due to some bad dentist working on me and didn't know what they was doing. So I get to live with the pain for the rest of my life. Right now my family dr is giving me meds for the pain until I get to go to the pain specialist in May. A pain specialist is the way to go.
1155483 tn?1262436247 also talk to ur pharmacist about it...good to read what we take cos being in the medical profession..i do see a few drs who do not always make alot of sense/nor read up on what they RX...only what the drug rep tells them..
Avatar f tn It's crazy how you've had so much come your way, and have had to fight through and overcome so much in your life, yet it is the pills and the addiction that finally takes you down. That just goes to show how serious, conniving, and over powering addiction is. IT can take the strongest people and break them down so far that they are willing to do almost anything to get out. It is sad, the way addiction tears threw people's lives and takes you down a path of darkness and despair.
Avatar n tn I just pray that I can get a new liver and get my life back! I am trying to fiind someone who knows how to set up website up about it to help us get enough money to go out of the country to grt a new liver.I have a M.D. that will do it,we are financially drained from this medical situation dragging on so long.And of course our credit is also medically ruint.
1165896 tn?1263571386 I had that prescribed to me when I had all 4 wisdom teeth removed and with TN it does nothing but make me pass out. Try some Tremidol (has to be prescribed) or Oxycodone. The burning sensation will not go away, but any other pain associated with it might be dissolved.
Avatar m tn I completely agree and he had changed it to 1 1/2 every 5 hours, but the pain was coming on strong within about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, so he told me to try to take them closer together but back to one at a time. It seems like work ok this way, but when I've tried to cut out the somas because of the drowsiness, I seem to over compensate with the vicodins even though they both help completely different problems.
356518 tn?1322267242 Hi Jazmon, I really wish you would have began a new thread (question). You will obtain better responses and visibility. For those that don't know - Meloxicam (Mobic) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. - Meloxicam is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in adults. Maloxicam contains Naproxen sodium 220 mg (naproxen 200 mg) which is also a NSAID.
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.
982333 tn?1305792489 I ended up finding a wonderful doctor. She is a very intelligent Romanian woman. 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.
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 ..
522415 tn?1242941355 Believe in yourself enough to not let this disease take you over. No matter how bad it hurts at least step outside and check the mail or walk down your side walk.
Avatar f tn One way to tell how well a med is working is how long it lasts. If it doesn't last long enough - dose is low. If it lasts too long - dose is high. Concerta should last for about 8 hours. Was he having his speech problems all day long or only more so in the afternoon? What made you decide to lower his dose? I had assumed that these problem happened before you lowered the dose?
975514 tn?1325001538 I thought the lyrica wasn't working until after I had been on it for about a year and I ran out and forgot to get it filled. yeah. it helps. Exercise does help but it has to be gentle weight bearing like walking or light aerobics or free weights and some of the best advice I ever got was never to do anything longer than 15 minutes. it especially applies to exercise but really it applies to everything. Sitting in the same position, cleaning, standing.
605877 tn?1301704246 Do you have any other symptoms accompanying this inflammation/pain? It really sounds like it may just be something viral, but it could take awhile to get over it. I hope you feel better soon! If you see your doctor anytime soon, ask him/her what NSAID would be best for relieving the pain you're in and reducing the inflammation you're experiencing in particular areas.
Avatar f tn I am going to request to add you as a friend so it is easier to follow you. Keep up the good work!! The worst will be over soon and you can look forward to living the clean life.
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!
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.
10977101 tn?1414282594 she prescribed me northindrone, which is to treat for mild endometriosis. she told to take it for 6 months and if that and PT doesn't help the pain. she was going to schedule me to meet the surgeon to do surgery to see if it was endometriosis causing my i tried it out and i didn't notice any change i was still in pain. then i went to get MRI done.
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 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.
Avatar f tn 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!
712042 tn?1254572809 This thing is not real rare, just difficult to diagnose therefore uncommon. It is not defined within any race and seems to hit post- menopausal women. Researchers are looking for the 'why' while looking for a treatment. I'm glad it's 2008; if this had been several years ago the NIH protocol studies would not have been out there for researchers to concentrate on and I would certainly be in worst shape.
544292 tn?1268886268 Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
Avatar f tn Now I don't have to hide when I go pick it up or take them. But I plan on stopping mid dec. I think. I want to try to tapper, see if that works. Or else just stay home from work for a week and feel like crap.
