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


Avatar n tn The others here are better at explaining how long withdrawals last, what to expect, what to do, what to buy. It was 5 good days of the harder withdrawals off of lortab for me back when I quit it abruptly or as they say here, "cold turkey," or CT. I don't understand why your doctor didn't work up a plan to taper you off of the lortab. He had to know what you would go through.
635402 tn?1270166077 I took this med long ago and don't remember how it effected me but I will get back to you with some more info:)
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 m tn since I am not on Remicade, I as able to obtain some Mobic. for some reason, Mobic does not seem to work the way it did before, some days when I take mobic, it works like a Charm, but some days I am in extreme pain. I also purchase some over the counter arthritis pain relief medicine, but I'm not taken much of it. the question I have is why does medicine work will one day and other days, it does not work at all? Thank you very much.
5082295 tn?1371254511 ), so he gave it to me as a trial and told me just to discontinue if it didn't work for me. That doctor thought I had arthritis and fibromyalgia because my joints in my hands and ankles were swollen and prescribed Mobic for it but at the end I went to a rheumatologist and after a lot of blood tests he told me I didn't have arthritis nor fibromyalgia. They still don't know what I have.
Avatar n tn I really want to get off of everything but I am scared the pain I feel now will be so much worse. How long does it take for your body to start making it's own endorphins? Does anyone know so that I can decide if I should stay on the meds or get off. Also, I am still on Worker's Comp so I know that won't go well with them and they will think I am not really hurt but I just hate not being me anymore. I have had 2 back surgeries, the 2nd because my dr left a bone in.
650738 tn?1247129608 I want to be able to ask my doc to shift to these meds without sounding like some kind of drug seeker, I never use meds in a way not given by the doc, and even call him from time to time to get permission to take more OXY from time to time. How should I go through with me asking to shift to these meds without allerting him, he has been seeing me for over a year and knows I dont abuse the meds gives, its just at the age of 42 im net ready to lie around the house all day and have zero life.
Avatar n tn Any thing that leaves you feeling like that is not worth it! Plus if it does that to you body when you stop it can't be good to consume!
Avatar m tn As of 622 pm tonight, it will be officially 5 days. I just work to make to then. Much love and prayers to you! Read all the other posts from other wd's, it helped me so much.
Avatar f tn so I don't think the relafen has started to work yet. How long does the relafen take to start working... how many weeks? And why did the mobic stop working? Is that normal? I'm wondering if my osteoarthritis is getting worse... or what's going on? Doctor did lab work... so if I had rheumatoid arthritis instead of osteo... would that show up in lab? I'm only 45.. was first diagnosed with osteoarthritis around 40... is that young for that?
Avatar f tn So I searched the web and found all the above comments which have helped greatly because I am going to refill the flexeril and start taking it again and then I am going to gradually cut back the amt. and how often I take it and see it I can get off it without the horrible headaches. If I go back on the flexeril and the headaches go away I will know that it was the flexeril.
566544 tn?1219441277 My pain problem is going to be with me for life, and I need to be able to manage it without opiates. I will need more back surgeries in time, and I fear having to use opiates for a short time, but at least for "normal" life, I don't want drugs ever again. So far, my efforts include faithfully going to physical therapy, FINALLY loosing weight (I wish I wouldve known that methadone would cause such weight gain), being more active, improving my diet, and keeping positive.
Avatar f tn I think it depends on the disease activity, it's progress at the time of diagnosis and how well it responds to the drug regime prescribed for you. I can tell you it took me about 2 yrs to get diagnosed and then another 8 months before we got the right combo of drugs so that I started to respond positively to the therapy. Even with a positive response, I have good days and bad days and, my new favorite, side effect days - days I suffer the side effects of methotrexate.
1465913 tn?1318975052 I recently began pursuit of my doctorate and the excessive use of my computer mouse has exacerbated it ten-fold! I am so glad to find I wasnt alone!! I'm not sure how long it will take to reside so any input from those of you who have been experiencing it longer is appreciated.
Avatar f tn Your mind is just panicking because it needs the drug and it will do whatever it can to make you take it. The mental part of this is the worst. For a good 2-4 weeks, you will not want to get out of bed. You will not want to do anything. It is hard to talk to other people because all you can think about is how the hydro will make you feel if you just take one.
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 m tn I find the most relief from pain when hunching forward and find it excruciating to extend my lumbar back into a straighter posture. I also find the most pain when trying to do an anterior tilt to extend my lumbar spine out of the hunch into straighter, more proper posture. I have seen 3 doctors now including a spine surgeon specialist and have been diagnosed with: -degenerative disc disease of the entire spine pretty much. -an annular tear in L4-L5 disc.
Avatar f tn Went to my drs and shes going to refer me to another neuro but shes not sure how long i will have to wait. Shes also referred me to the musco skeletal service as been having problems with pain in fingers hand and some weakness in my right hand . She seems to think its carpal tunnel and ulner nerve problem Dont know how long that will take or what they do till I get there! The pain is awful though because it wakes me up in the night ! Any suggestions appreciated to try and ease it !
Avatar n tn But tighting these core muscles does not make it easier to lift that leg. I end up lifting it with my arms. I am a walker. Please explain this snapping hip.. Do you know why this is happening and what I can do to stop it.
4522800 tn?1470329434 BUT now I am rocking back and fourth here crying in so so so so much pain from my hands down to my toes. It is so painful and it is all over in my body. Does this sound like some arthritis going on all over or What?? I just can NOT take this kinda pain it is just really bringing me down and scaring the **** out of me. Does any body know what this might sound like or what should I do to help it???? I see the Dr on the 31st I just want some heads up..
182884 tn?1259316506 I know about withdrawl symptoms and have allready cut back 30 mg off my 90 mg day dose. If there is something else I could take to alleviate the pain I would take it. My Workmans comp makes it hard to get anything. I haven't worked since 2000 because when employers see my back history add my age, they laugh and look the other way. Methadone does not have any stigma that I am woried about.
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.
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.
1243848 tn?1268463672 the trick, though, is i'm not always able to judge exactly where the level of pain is at---and sometimes it is on it's way to getting worse when i take the meds---so i have to take more within a short period of time. what i am finding frustrating, is the natural tolerance that we build up to narcotics--which is not the same thing as being addicted. i am allowed 4 norco and 4 soma a day---plus i take either mobic or alot of aspirin for the joint pain.
459853 tn?1283144114 My Primary Care doctor had placed me on a round of Prednisone to try and reduce some of the inflammation, Mobic for the spasms and another long term anti-inflammatory. It felt like the Prednisone worked for about a week then the pain came back full force. I'm so tired of the pain, I just want it to go away... I hurt in the middle of the night when i try to sleep. I can't lay on on stomach cause I cant turn my head.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Friends, Good work! Welcome new warriors! We are glad you are here. Make yourself comfy.
Avatar f tn I dont go to Dr til Mon the 9th. I am currently taking Mobic. I was just curious about OTC meds other than Advil. I will update after Dr appt.
Avatar f tn What are some non-narcotic drugs I can possibly try? I have been taking valium to help relax my muscles, which it does...But it does nothing for the pain that is constant.I have been taking motrin ,aleve,advil.but feel no relief at all. I have not taken anymore pain medicine since I took those Norco earlier this week. I do not want to ruin my progress but I am in pain and need to do something..I have an MRI scheduled for next week to see if the discs that were already bad in my back are worse..
544292 tn?1268886268 I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing. I stick with it because my grandson tells me how nice it is now to only have to ask grandpa ONE TIME to be picked up. (Pappa? Pappa? Pappa? Pappa?
