Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam naproxen


175688 tn?1297560247 Can anyone please tell me what Meloxicam is? I was prescribed this after my recent neck surgery and have to pick it up tonight. Are there are addictive qualities to it? I was addicted to vicodin before and don't want to get back into that. If you take more than you should, what can it do to you? I just want to be prepared. Thank you so much.
603946 tn?1333945439 I have severe sciatica and was told to discontinue use of all Acetaminophen, Aleve, Ibuprofen, Aspirin. You gotta be kidding..... I do have meloxicam on hand. Thinking maybe one meloxicam with a dose later in the day of hydrocodone 7.5/500 acet and soma at bedtime Anyone have advice? And I do not know the platelet count. I did ask on a return phone call to the reply in 2 days. Can't be too low I don't think, I've never had this happen.
Avatar f tn I know three people who take Meloxicam. Two of them have absolutely NO problems with it and the third has a very sensitive stomach when it comes to ANY med, so they tend to have stomach issues from it, but then they have stomach issues from every pill they ever take. Depending on what kind of damage there is in your spine from the herniated discs you may or may not get much relief from it, but you won't know until you try.

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 f tn If it has not healed in a month, don't wait too long to see a specialist. The anti-inflammatories (i.e. naproxen, ibuprofen, meloxicam) did not help me at all. I also did physical therapy for 6 weeks and it did not help. I'm hoping the surgery will reduce the pain to a more managable level. good luck...
Business man2 I try to have my patients take very little daily ibuprofen/naproxen as they can lead to kidney disease (based on total lifetime dose), ..."). While I realize there might be no connection, as luck would have it, last week my blood work came back with a "low-normal" kidney reading after having used ibuprofen regularly (4 OTC tabs once/day) for ONLY 1 YEAR !! ... prompting my Dr. to take me off ibuprofen and other NSAIDs.

Avatar n tn Some of these include naproxen, meloxicam, aspirin, ibuprofen Other drugs to treat the underlying immune system problem causing the swelling and pain include: placquenil methotrexate enbrel orencia humira rituxan Again, I don't know which of these are available in India, but I would hope that at least placquenil and methotrexate, which have been around for many years, will be available to you. Good luck!
513226 tn?1283787728 Jack Sussman precribed me a Meloxicam (Mobicox) for 1 month it healed my inflammation on my left hip but as I have written above is my problem. I went to the Hospital for emergancy because my pain started to hurt and the medication has been finished a week ago. The doctor in the hospital prescribed me Ratio-lenoltec #3 300/15/30Mg and Apo-NAPROXEN 500MG. And when I take them both with Food I start to get hiccups for hours.

Avatar m tn You can try the prescription Naproxen, this is a prescription to Aleve. I've used it for years. I am now using Meloxicam, because I've been on it too long, long means like off and on for over 20 years, and it just wasn't doing anything for me. I have a lumbar back sprain.
Avatar n tn The mobic (meloxicam) is an NSAID like motrin and naproxen. It is very similar in chemical structure to piroxicam(feldene). It is much longer acting than motrin or naproxan though, so it can usually be dosed once a day. And the bancap is just another brand name from a different pharmaceutical co. for vicodin 5mg hydrocodone/500mgtylenol lol I'm pretty sure you're familiar! I have actually been doing really well for this time of year. Hubby and I partied hard last night!
Avatar f tn I will often try to follow a seroma for 6 months or more to see if it resolves on its own. Aside from drainage, treatment with a daily anti-inflammatory (ibuprofen, naproxen, meloxicam, etc.) may help relieve the pain until the seroma reabsorbs. An occasional muscle relaxant such as cyclobenzaprine may also help a bit. Wearing an abdominal binder may help to compress the seroma and help it resolve faster.

Avatar f tn I am very active, and I usually don't take the time to sit and rest my body.The Drs. say I'm overworking myself.I know I am but can't stop.I've been given flexaril 10mg, Naproxen 550mg , loratab 10mg, and meloxicam, steroid packs and steroid shot. My back inflames on the let side of my spine up to a inch and sometimes its upper or lower and one time it was an inch raised up inflammed all the way down my spine.It hurts!I have a curve in my spine and when this happens I get scared.
3122657 tn?1357436202 Mobic is the brand name...Meloxicam is the generic...I take it for my joint pain brought on by TX. Its a prescription only NSAID that is easier on the stomach than Ibu and Naproxen. It helps some. I also use Arnicare (arnica gel)...its homeopathic stuff that I rub on my knee, wrists, etc. I'm not sure about rubbing alcohol thing.
Avatar m tn My non narco drug that I found to work really good for my back pain is called meloxicam I think that's how u spell it it's just the generic of mobic andbis just an NSAID like motrin or naproxen just a good bit stringer is what my doc told me and it works wonders for me so that's another one to try
982333 tn?1305792489 I did not like that feeling, and it made it hard to drive or work. I am now taking Meloxicam. It is not helping, and gives me an extremely bad stomach ache. It feels like someone is cutting my stomach open with a knife. I told my doctor, and she indicated to give it " more time" and " eat crackers". I told her the Tylenol 3 and Norco KINDOF helped.. and asked if there was somthing similar to those i could take, that may work.
2207073 tn?1338935516 i take gabapentin 300mg tid and meloxicam 7.5 bid(not sure if these even work..plusa new rx for norco 7.5/325 and 10mg cyclopenzaprine the pain i experienced normal? and if the injection don't work what's next? This is going on 6 years of chronic pain..and my kids miss their mommy!
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 In January of 2012, after experiencing some lower back pain and having an MRI done, I discovered that I had a herniated disc at L3-4. I started taking a combination of naproxen, gabapentin, and tramadol. The main focal points of the pain was the lower back, and left back hip (right behind the pocket). The pain would often radiate down my leg and across my groin. I dealt with it, waiting to see if if it would subside on it's own.

Avatar m tn I took meloxicam daily for a year and noticed that it elevated my blood pressure. The trouble with these NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflmmatory) meds is that they all increase the risk of stroke and other cardiovascular events, although naproxen (Aleve) is thought to be less risky. I read that diclofenac sodium (aka Voltaren) is considered one of the most toxic NSAIDs. I have found that getting more exercise helps relieve my back and neck pain and water exercise is the best. Have you tried it?
Avatar n tn I don't know what the strength of the naproxen is that your doctor prescribed, but I know that the over the counter medication Aleve also contains naproxen - again I don't know at what strength though. It's possible that maybe if the dose of naproxen your doctor gave you is a bit strong for you with your blood pressure, using the otc Aleve might help that and still give you some pain control. OF COURSE, DO NOT CHANGE ANY MEDICATIONS WITHOUT FIRST TALKING TO YOUR DOCTOR.
449236 tn?1220570314 ok aleve is naprosyn or naproxen it is an NSAID still have the issues with stomach the only NSAID that I know of that will have little effect on the stomach is tolecton that is becouse it is taken 1 daily and it is broken down in the intestins insteed of the stomach. Carpol tunnel issue is easier to reduce pain sleep in splints at night wrist **** up splints when your cutting up food stop putting preasure over the carpol tunnel use a small towell to protect your hands.
Avatar f tn First I saw my general doc who said maybe I just strained some muscles and gave me some Naproxen and Cyclobenzaprene. No improvement after about 6 weeks so I tried Chiropractics which relieved my symptoms temporarily, but as soon as I danced again, I would be in a large amount of pain.
