Overdosed on ibuprofen about 20 and taking meloxicam feel bad but I just want my life to be over. Will taking both of these kill me?

You may be quite ill: Being young (no prior cardiac issues) you're most likely to become quite ill for some time. This is not what you say you want so it will be bad from your POV too.

Is mobic (meloxicam) safer than ibuprofen? I was just prescribed Mobic (meloxicam). I have anxiety so I didn't know if it'd get my bp up or make me feel weird.

Is mobic (meloxicam) safer than ibuprofen? I was just prescribed Mobic (meloxicam). I have anxiety so I didn't know if it'd get my bp up or make me feel weird.

Anxiety raises BP: If a person takes Mobic (meloxicam) and worries her blood pressure will go up, she will see that her blood pressure goes up after taking Mobic (meloxicam). Likewise, if she takes ibuprofen and worries her blood pressure will rise, she will see that her blood pressure rises. That's because it's her anxiety that raises her BP, not the pain medication. Pain medication lowers BP by lowering the amount of pain. Avoid anxiety. ...Read more
