Meloxicam over the counter

Common Questions and Answers about Meloxicam over the counter


Avatar n tn My doctor is the one who prescribed the Naproxin. He is aware of course, that I have high blood pressure. He said controlling the blood pressure is more important than my hands feeling better. He said if I have a stroke, I won't care if my hands hurt. But I think the Naproxin is raising my blood pressure. So if you are staying away from all anti-infammatory medications, what are you doing for your arthritis pain???
Avatar n tn Your doctor will then be able to work with your needs if he or she is aware of all the medications (prescription, over-the counter, and herbals) you are currently taking.
Avatar f tn I'm always trying to get through to the doctors, that prior to the accident...I prob took like a over the counter pain reliever at the most twice a year. My tummy just is rejecting a lot of the meds. The worst is always the anti-inflammation meds. I've been on Nabumetone(I think that is it), Naproxen and now Mobic and everything, even w/ food it still makes me sick. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels sick from these.....the doctors act like i must have this super weak stomach. I'm lost....
Avatar n tn Now after reading about Meloxicam side effects today, I am suspecting that perhaps the issue is the Meloxicam. My symptoms seem slightly different each day. Initially it was a few days of mostly lower leg weakness and overall lack of energy. That changed to a few days of lower leg tingling and numbness, and then the numbness and tingling moved to mostly my right side leg and arm and slightly in my left leg.
Avatar f tn You might be able to take a Tylenol; check with your doctor or your pharmacist before combining scripts with over the counter medications.
Avatar n tn I have pernicious anemia. The itching would almost drive me crazy. PN is dangerous if left undiagnosed. You need a more intensive blood test than just the usual cbc. If you have it, you just need b-12 injections. No amount of pills will help. Just get this checked, as it will ultimately become deadly.
Avatar n tn I believe there were studies done recently that showed too many people take over the counter tylenol, believing it's safe - too much of it is hard on the liver. Most people really only need one regular strength tylenol, not two extra strength. Anyway, that got a little off topic. :) Just be sure to take them as prescribed and no more. If you have any concerns, I'd recommend asking your pharmacist - they are more up on the latest information about drug interactions.
Avatar f tn I know it's harder to do than this but try to relax and just accept the things in which we don't have any control over. Medications can be a life saver it's just trying to find the one's which help you out the most, because everyone is different. I'm a newfound Christian and have found a lot of peace through reading the Bible and praying. Not sure of your religious beliefs but it might be something to consider.
1482767 tn?1287845646 ) ... But, you mentioned a "plaquinel".... have not taken that, and I have been taking the same meds consistantly (with the exception of adding anti-inflammatory) since I was first diagnosed with the high ANA. Thank you both VERY MUCH for your input! I am anxious to learn and share more about this ANA as I learn.... What a great place to feel "welcome" and "understood"!!!
975514 tn?1325001538 Wasn't until the Rhumetoligist ruled out MS, that I was told I had Fibromyalgia, roungly 10 years ago. The only releif I can suggest is stay active, the pain meds do nothing but mask over the discomfort. It you belong to a spa or the Y, go with water areobics. The movement gets the joints and tendons active and the warm water seems to ease the discomfort. Also, try deep breathing exercises and learn how to control your pain.
Avatar f tn In the mean time, there's no reason for you to be in this much pain. Have you tried any over the counter pain meds, and if so do they help? If not it might be a good idea to talk to your Dr about a low dose prescription med to take when the pain is unbearable and until they can find out what's going on.
513154 tn?1340228889 Last November I had 5, 6, and 7 upper vertebra fused together and feel so much better in that way BUT i can't take anti inflammatory medications for my Osteoarthritis, Tylenol doesn't even help a bit and non of the arthritis over the counter meds help either. My question is... is there a non narcotic pain medication that I can take every day? I am 45 years old and very healthy besides my arthritis. thank you!
Avatar f tn It would be to your benefit to see a Neurologist/NeuroSurgeon in your area. The continuation of these symptoms leads to nerve damage. An MRI needs to be specific. The lumbar-Sacral MRI is not going to show Annular Bulging to the Cervical-Thoracic Spine. I am not a doctor, however, Brachial Plexis Radiculapathy could be an issue along with other issues further down the spine as in the Lumbar Region.
Avatar m tn prescribed me steroids and meloxicam. I can actually feel the vas deferens from the epididymus to the prostate at all times. PAINFUL! But not sure if I was diagnosed correctly. I now have pains in my right leg, as well as behind my shoulder blades. Right testicle seems to stay at the top, where the left is always at the bottom. hurts to walk or stand. I can still ejaculate, but no real orgasm. intenseness is gone. That being said, I originally went to the Dr.
Avatar f tn Based on your medical condition, it is very important for you to consult your physician and pharmacist before taking any medication (prescription and/or over-the-counter), vitamins and supplements. And, before taking any medication, always inform the providers that you are allergic to Septra and with what kind of allergic reactions. Based on your med list, it looks like you are taking: 1. Meloxicam: for pain and inflammation? 2. Metformin: for diabetes, but you are not on insulin?
Avatar f tn other doctors prescript 1 mg a day. I take the 5mg weekly, plus an extra, over the counter supplement along with my multivitamin/mineral tablet. On mtx day, though, I don't take anything containing folic acid. The reason for this is that mtx and folic acid compete for the same chemical receptors in the body, so taking them together makes them both work less well. Mtx has been around for a very, very long time and it's effects and side effects are well known and documented.
8472179 tn?1398699759 Someone who can give you the pills, per the plan, and then hide them. Tapering, in my opinion, is a bit easier on the body but it prolongs the mental games. Finally, I can't offer a lot of advice about all that can help with detox. I drank Ensure when I couldn't eat, drank liquids with electrolytes added, and then, when my appetite came back, I ate like a pig. Fueling your body is very important during withdrawal. I used, off and on, for over 15 years.
Avatar n tn You run a risk of addiction with all of them. Go Over the Counter meds and stay there. Opiates are bad news, even Darvocet.
Avatar f tn I started with headaches that nothing over the counter would touch--was on darvocet to begin with. a hysterectomy put me into such a bad flare that I ended up on norco so as not to get to much acetaminophen. I am allowed 5 norco and 4 soma a day, I also take meloxicam 2x a day for arthritis--and I still have pain that is hard to deal with on a lot of days. I have tried a butrans patch, which did help some, but I could not afford to keep using it.
Avatar m tn Thanks to Enbrel and methotrexate, I find I can get along without daily NSAIDs, but there are times I take an over-the-counter NSAID like Aleve. But even that tears up my stomach, so it's usually Tylenol for me. I take Prevacid twice daily for my stomach. That's the h3ll of having RA - eventually you wind up taking meds to deal with the side effects of the original meds.
635402 tn?1270166077 Such a combination is deemed synergistic, meaning basically that two plus two equals ten. Naprosyn is the prescription form of Aleve which is sold over the counter and is an anti-inflammatory. Once this research was confirmed, GSK began to develop a combination drug. The second reason this drug might be better is something called RT technology. GSK has developed this and uses it currently for its Imitrex tablets.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tram Warriors! Part 60. Wow. 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 m tn If you have any trouble finding any of these, talk to your local pharmacist as sometimes they keep the stronger ones behind the counter. Don't worry that does mean that is needs a prescription. Let me know if you have any questions about this. Have a great day.
Avatar m tn i'm so sorry for the pain your kitty is in, all I can tell you is there is NO safe over the counter pain control for a cat...please do NOT attempt to give him anything that we people take it can be very toxic and would likely kill him. Can you call a clinic and ask for a prescription without a visit? if you explain the situation there maybe one that would help, the prescriptions themselves are very inexpensive...or if not would one clinic agree to take monthly payments?
3297715 tn?1349023948 I second what MsKiity said about skin problems as well. These meds can also irritate skin so have someone look at your rash. If over-the-counter products are not helping some people take an oral antihistamine but what really helped me was a prescription topical steroid. I used Clobetasol which is pretty potent but it eliminated whatever I had on my knees and toes. I could go on but the point is a huge part of treatment adherence is managing side effects.
629139 tn?1222197445 Well it DID NOT go away. I took over the counter meds like alevee and it would lessen the pain but not make it go away completely. I went to my regular doctor who prescribed Methylpred 4mg pak ( which are steroids) and Meloxicam 7.5 mg (anti enflamitory) neither of the medications helped the pain. This pain, however, has significantly changed a lot of things for me.
605877 tn?1301704246 I guessed that NSAIDs are the medicine of choice for treating it, and I was right...this would include over-the-counter drugs like Motrin and Advil, or prescription drugs like Arthrotec and Meloxicam. Otherwise, for reducing the pain and inflammation, ice packs/heating pads can be used, and plenty of bed rest is advised. 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.
Avatar f tn Was that one of your symptoms? I just ache all over - but not all of the time. I try not to take any tylenol if I can stand it. The nsaids make me retain fluid - so I try to stay away from those also. Just one more question - did you find that your body had weird reactions to different foods and drugs (even over the counter)? I took mucinex dm for a cold around Easter and I went into a depression/panic attacks.
