Specializes in Pain Management

No: They are both nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (nsaids). All nsaids have the same side effects or potential risks.

Specializes in Rheumatology

No: They are about the same. Both are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids). Some say there is anecdotal evidence that Meloxicam is safer on the stomach but it remains to be proven.
