Mobic and stomach pain

Common Questions and Answers about Mobic and stomach pain


Avatar m tn Mobic is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), and like any other NSAID it can cause acidity and stomach ulcers. Please discuss with your doctor and start either antacid gel or a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole or lansprazole. Take Mobic after a full meal. Avoid heavy, oily and fried food, alcohol, smoking, and long periods of not eating. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure on the time but taking them together could tear up your stomach and cause your stomach to bleed. I would consult your doctor or even pharmacist about this.
Avatar n tn I got back pain and my doctor prescribed me Mobic 15mg twice a day for a short period of five days, as I understand the maximum dose is 15mg daily. Is it safe to take Mobic 15mg that way ?
Avatar f tn I was on Mobic for a year or so and never had any issues besides stomach pain (which any NSAID's can cause) I get stomach pain with any NSAID's. Mobic wasn't really that affective for me but my insurance made me try practically every NSAID on the market before they would approve Celebrex. They denied Celebrex and even recommended a PPI (ulcer med) to take with the NSAID's because they didn't want to pay for Celebrex. After they denied me 4 or 5 times, they finally approved it.
Avatar n tn My mama used to take Mobic and it helped her back alot. Unfortunately for her, it upset her stomach so she quit taking it with no side effects following. Best wishes.
Avatar m tn 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. I normally don't have too much trouble with meds but this stuff is potent. What have been your experiences with this med? I'm also on Paxil, 10mgs per day, and Methlyne, 15mgs per day, for the depression and anxiety problems. Thx in advance for all your replys. Thom.
635402 tn?1270166077 Like Imitrex, it is made to be taken at the onset of a migraine, but is supposed to work faster and better to reduce migraine pain. GSK has spent several years and millions of dollars researching and "pre-marketing" Treximet in anticipation of FDA approval and product launch. So what's the deal? Is this really better than Imitrex alone? From a strict treatment point of view, yes, the medication probably is better than Imitrex alone for a migraine. The reason for this is twofold.
Avatar m tn two days later felt tingling down arms then days after that for 4 days straight had this burning (sunburn) type of pain on top of head, stomach, sides,ears and left arm. Its so severe its like chemical burn. comes and goes, now today been staying with me. No shooting pain just burn. I am thinking its the mobic. hadnt felt right on it. Also taking Lovaza omega 3.. This burn cant be a pinch nerve? I have a feeling its a reaction? Thoughts?
Avatar n tn My emotions are all over the place and i have no desire to do anything, and not alot of energy--but i have alot of joint and muscle pain and i have trouble sleeping unless i drug myself with everything i think i can get away with. i also did the axillary basal temps--i was 97.4, 97.2, 96.4 and another 97.2 or 4. too low to be normal. i'm impressed if you got to the end of this---any thoughts?
Avatar f tn Ive been on Mobic for about 6 mos... i currently have been having problems and went to the E.R and the free clinic. Free clinic determined IBS, but i dint think about my medication being a cause even though i did mention it to the doctor.
Avatar n tn I took a few celebrex and the pain stopped.Now I have started a new job and work my shoulder more and it is starting to feel like someone is sticking a hot iron to it.i don't have insurance and the DR. here in Ga. are high I don't know what to do please help me.
Avatar n tn I've stopped going to the gym, but walk and do stretching exercises at home I just wonder if the pain is with me forever.
Avatar f tn went to an ortho doctor because of a nerve problem in my back, was put on prednisone and mobic. started having bad chest pains, lump in throat, acid reflux, stomach pains, left arm and jaw pain. stopped taking all meds and now i still have the same issues just not as bad. symptoms come and go throughout the day. doesnt matter if i rest or do work. most mornings i wake up and for the most part i feel fine. get my day started with a cup of coffee and i do smoke. bout a pack a day.

Its so severe its like chemical burn. comes and goes, now today been staying with me. No shooting pain just burn.When it isnt burning then its like a itch crawly feeling. when skin is 'burning' it is warm and I think rash might be occuring. I am thinking its the mobic. hadnt felt right on it. Also taking Lovaza omega 3..
Avatar n tn Hello and Welcome to our Arthritis Community, You've asked a good question - and received some good information. I'll just add a bit. As you know Meloxicam (Common Brand Name, Mobic) and Ibuprofen are NSAIDs. Each can be effective in reducing pain and inflammation. As with all medications, their effectiveness often depends on an individual's reaction (metabolism).
1858011 tn?1319840953 I went to the doctor today and they put me on mobic and some kind of pain cream.. Has anyone heard of these medications? The cream is coming from out of state..... Not sure what its called at this moment.... I fell today when my caregivers were trying to get me out of bed. So, its been such a bad day. I was also talking to the nurse about a pain pump.... Any experience with this?
3122657 tn?1357436202 But racky I forgot about how easy the mobic was on my stomach. And act is so rite on about naproxen. I took it 23 yrs ago. Horrible on the tummy. And also joint pain comes with hep c. Not everyone gets it. But thats how I was diagnosed, my rheumatologist.
Avatar m tn I took paracetamol and seemed to kill the pain. However, I am worried I might have the shoulder pain regularly and worried about passing out somewhere and I couldn't focus on activities/work and I figure I don't want any painkillers forever.
Avatar n tn I've been to my PCP numerous times and haves seen a GI specialist, and nothing. The pain comes and goes. An episode will usually last about 1 - 3 hours. The pain comes in waves sort of like menstrual cramps. It seems to come on if I have been particularly active, standing for long periods of time, go a long time on an empty stomach, or eat a heavy meal. My bowel habits have not changed nor does a bowel movement have any affect on the cramps.
Avatar n tn My doctor put me on Neurontin, Baclofen, and Mobic. She later took me off the Mobic, and gave me Tramadol, and now Celebrex. I took myself off the Celebrex, it irritated my stomach. The Neurontin seems to be helping on most days, my legs have stopped hurting at night when I lay down. Now after I've been on my feet a few hours at work, they begin to hurt so bad, I can hardly walk. Nothing seems to help this pain.
Avatar n tn i wake up quite often with a stabbing pain in my stomach--but that usually goes away pretty quick---but i notice i am waking up feeling like i have started a new exercie program that is leaving my muscles in tremendous pain. my pain killers are working less and less. recently, i am gettting pain in my legs in the evenings that is almost unbearable and i can't get rid of it. tonight i took 2 norco---and it didn't even touch my pain. i am assumimng thee are both low cortisol symptoms.
Avatar f tn I had an baby got an epidural,since the epidural I been having severe lower back pain and numbness and tingling in my right. Now this what the doctor have told me since. Before I tell can tell you can you tell me the probem.One doctor told me I haveBack Pain with Sciatica, Hematuria and he went on im his notes I have MS and the MS is called Arthralgia and Muscle problem.
Avatar m tn I take a Zofran(ONDANSETRON 4MG TABLETS) with them for stomach upset and an ativan (LORAZEPAM 1MG TABLETS) to help relax and let the stone pass. b) Toradol really helps when a stone is stuck or actively moving. It is an NSAID, not a narcotic so I prefer it. It is not safe to take more than 5 days at a time. The rest of the time I would take a demerol, if it did not help I would take a dilauded. If that did not work I would head to the ER. I have not had to rely on these lately!
Avatar n tn I am living away from my parents, sometimes we're just calling each other through phones and 2 weeks ago they told me that my father got into checkup co'z his left leg felt certein nubness with unbearable pain. He was diagnosed with kidney infection so he took antibiotics and pain reliever for one week(stafloxin, diclofenac) after 1 week he returned to the Dr. for follow up. Because the pain was till there in his.....
Avatar f tn So, maybe if you could call and make an appointment, showing her how much pain your in, that mobic isn't doing anything but putting a hole in your stomach, maybe she will do the right thing and prescribe something to help you through until you can find someone who is willing to treat your pain appropriately. Until then, hang in there, sorry it's been so bad.
Avatar f tn I thought that was breakthrough pain was. It almost doesn't apply to me as the pain is so high and so constant. I get up in the morning and it's really high and it gets worse as the day goes by (and this can be with me simply sat or led on the sofa - any kind of movement (slightly turning my head, moving my arm, just any very slight movement really) increases it.
Avatar n tn The drugs were from age 13-18, and I've been clean about 20 years (rehab, NA, AA). I live on Viox for my arms, 50MG a day. I'm still in a lot of pain, and I can only code for an hour or 2 before I can't type anymore. What are my alternative drugs? Anaprox and familiy rip holes through my stomach, and real opiates are off limits. I see Ultram, but it seems like some kind off opiate cross-over that I should stay away from.
Avatar n tn are there any viable alternative(s) to narcotics for effective pain control for moderate to severe pain? If not, what are better alternatives to the Vicoden and Percocet? We know that we will have to deal with withdrawal issues, too. Really appreciate your responses. I have a great respect for the people in this forum, as I have spent the last 2 hours reading through various discussions. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I also have neck and upper back pain after C5-6 fusion. An Oropod did my surgery. I eventually went to a Neuro in Rapid City, SD but it appears that there is not a problem. I have had another MRI. No problem. My new Neuro is doing an Intrathecal CT on Jan 3, 2007. My guess is that he will not see anything.
211940 tn?1267884866 However, he said it could NOT be causing me so much pain. He checked out my arm and noticed a hard soft tissue knot, and suggested removing it through surgery and it "might" relieve my pain. So, 3 weeks ago I had the said surgery and it was removed (a hard soft tissue mass about the size of a marble). No, this was not the cyst inside my humerus bone. Anyways, I still have the pain, and it is extremely terrible at night (on a scale of 1 to 10, a 20 at night).
