Is Mobic Stronger Than Aleve
Depends on patient: Mobic (meloxicam) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (nsiad). Aleve (naproxen) is also an nsaid. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is not an anti-inflammatory medicine. Mobic lasts longer and in most cases needs to be taken once daily. Patients react differently to nsaids. So the efficacy frequently is patient dependent. ...Read more
Taking NSAIDs: Generallyn it is pretty safe to take NSAIDs if you have reflux. I would take them with food. If you have known ulcer disease, it is wise to limit the NSAIDs or take them with a protective drug that reinforces the liking of the stomach. Avoid drinking a lot when you are being treated for ulcer disease. Good luck and feel better. ...Read more

I'm now taking meloxicam for back pain, with right leg pain. I haven't received any relief. A friend recommended I switch to Aleve (naproxen). What do you thin?

No.: No. Meloxicam need be taken once daily usually supper and acts 24hrs Naproxen has to be ingested twice daily. Side effect profiles are similar, but several european studies agree with my view that Meloxicam is safer. Nonethless both increase risk for GI bleed, fluid retention, and can adversely affect kidneys. If taken chronically, you need to be monitored every three months. ...Read more
I took meloxicam 15mg about 12 hours ago and then just now took two 220mg naproxen sodium by accident... Am I in any danger? What should I do?
2 NSAIDs: Combination increases risk of GI bleeding & possible damage to kidneys. Make sure there's plenty in your stomach to buffer it against the meds & drink plenty of fluids to keep kidneys well flushed. If vomit blood or see black, tarry stools or blood in urine, see pcp or er doc at once. Best not to mix meds of same family to prevent such occurrences. ...Read more
I'm prescribed mobic (meloxicam) 15mg 1x a day, and it's not working. I haven't taken a dose since 6pm yesterday. Is it safe to try OTC naproxen today instead?
Yes: NSAIDS differ in responses in different people. It is rational to try different ones before giving up on them. Also some require more than just a day or two to see if they, 're effective. Newer ones like Celebrex (celecoxib) are easier on the gastrointestinal track in some but not all people. ...Read more
