My hips have arthritis in them.  I take 15mg meloxicam and I am feeling worse some days!  can I take ibuprofen or vicodin in same day?

Not ibuprofen: You can take vicodin if that is prescribed to you for the pain as the Acetaminophen will not cause any issues related to the meloxicam. However, do not take Ibuprofen with our as they are both nsaids and can increase the side effects you may have, including GI upset and ulcers. If the current regimen is not helping, discuss with your physician other options like injections. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Abdominal : Abdominal pain is a very complicated symptom. Often, the er is able to make sure it is not caused by something dangerous and in need of emergent care, but rarely are they able to diagnose the problem after that.
