Palpitations & Mobic (meloxicam): If you have been consistently experiencing heart palpitations with meloxicam (mobic), then don't take any more of it. Your prescriber will need to switch you to another oral NSAID like Celebrex (celecoxib). If your symptoms are localized to a specific joint or muscle, you might benefit from a topical NSAID like voltaren gel or Flector patches.
