I got x rays shows I have osteoarthritis in both my knees I'm taking meloxicam, tylenol (acetaminophen) and vicodin just to get threw work how bad is that for me?

I have just started taking mobic (meloxicam) 15 mg once a day, but also need something else to help pain etc at end of day, can I have nurofen and panadol still?

You can, but: Mobic (meloxicam) and nurofen (ibuprofen) are the same class of medications. Mild pain responds to aspirin, acetaminophen, or an NSAID alone. Adding a low dose of a weak opioid to the nonopioid medication can usually relieve more moderate pain. Rec. See your treating physician for meds adjustment. Do not self medicate.

Is mobic any stronger than tylenol (acetaminophen) or aleve?

Is mobic any stronger than tylenol (acetaminophen) or 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.
