Is it bad to take mobic (meloxicam) or aleve if you have acid reflux?

Taking NSAIDs: Generallyn it is pretty safe to take NSAIDs if you have reflux. I would take them with food.

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.
