What are the most common side effects of meloxicam, and how does this drug work?

What are the most common side effects of meloxicam, and how does this drug work?

Not major in most!: Meloxicam 15mg is one of my favorite nsaids. 24hr duration, (best taken at supper), and is one of the least likely to cause GI upset, which it can, but compared to Ibuprofen and others. $10 for 3 mo supply at kroger's, walmart, costco, target, and others.
Can cause fluid retention in some, an increased bp, and in people with marginal reanl function, a further deterioration. Still, very safe. ...Read more

Generally, are the side effects of meloxicam greater than naprosyn (naproxen)?

Generally, are the side effects of meloxicam greater than naprosyn (naproxen)?

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

Thank you! Could you give me your opinion of which works best and is safer with the least chance of negative side effects: mobic, (meloxicam) relafen or voltaren?

Thank you! Could you give me your opinion of which works best and is safer with the least chance of negative side effects: mobic, (meloxicam) relafen or voltaren?

Even odds: These are all members of the NSAID family. They all have about the same potential for side effects such as stomach irritation or possibly some salt and water retention (edema). There are some small studies that suggest that diclofenac might have slightly better analgesic effect but they all have fairly equivalent anti-inflammation properties. ...Read more

Should you WORRY Nah: Of course not. "Worry" is NEVER something one SHOULD do under any any circumstance. Being an educated MEDICAL CONSUMER though's a horse of a different color. Talk to the doc bout the NECESSITY of being on 3 meds with bleeding risks. They'e higher compared to not taking any of them. BUT- Risk vs. Benefit is what you're always after in this game of Medicine. Wanna chat? Www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi ...Read more

Doc prescribed meloxicam 7.5 mg for tendonitis after naproxen 500 mg gave me side effects. Feel dry mouth and slight joint pain after 1 tab. Is it ok?

Meloxicam Side Effec: Hello. Around 2% of patients complain of dry mouth with Meloxicam. It doesn't normally cause joint pain. In fact that is the reason why it is prescribed the most- for joint pain. If these side effects outweigh relief you are getting from it, then stop it.
