Entirely different: These two meds are entirely different pharmacologically. The one common feature is that both are NSAIDs. Naproxen should be dosed twice daily with meals, not multiple times. ...Read more

I'm prescribed mobic 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 are easier on the gastrointestinal track in some but not all people. ...Read more

Any bad interactions adding mobic to cymbalta, abilify, and suboxone? Naproxen isn't helping my golfers elbow.

Any bad interactions adding mobic to cymbalta, abilify, and suboxone?  Naproxen isn't helping my golfers elbow.

No problem: Mobic should be no problem, although it may not be much better than Naproxen and you shouldn't take both the same day. If you were my patient, i could see me suggesting spreading out the suboxone, like a smaller dose more frequently so you are not changing your total daily dose- you're just spreading it out to about every four hours. Please make sure your dr is okay with this first. Good luck. ...Read more

Naproxen 500mg, mobic 7.5mg, acroxia 90mg n celebrex 200mg. Which one doesn't cause anxiety n more effective as anti-inflammatory for joint/ muscle?

Naproxen 500mg,  mobic 7.5mg, acroxia 90mg n celebrex 200mg. Which one doesn't cause anxiety n more effective as anti-inflammatory for joint/ muscle?

Personal Choice: Acroxia is not available in my country, so i can't answer there. For the others, different people have different results and what you end up loving your brother or sister might hate. There is no way to know in advance, just have to try and see! anxiety if very unusual with all of these. ...Read more

Is mobic any stronger than tylenol or aleve?

Is mobic any stronger than tylenol or aleve?

Depends on patient: Mobic (meloxicam) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agent (nsiad). Aleve (naproxen) is also an nsaid. Tylenol 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

Why does ibuprofen and naproxen cause ankle swelling, and meloxicam cause ankle and leg swelling? Should i get my kidneys checked?

Why does ibuprofen and naproxen cause ankle swelling, and meloxicam cause ankle and leg swelling? Should i get my kidneys checked?

Side effect: The nsaids have a side effect of retaining fluid and can cause a host of other bad problems. They are not innocuous pills to be taken like candy. This fluid retention is a serious issue. And you need to avoid these medications better to find ou what is toxic in your body that needs to be cleansed rather then take dangerous medication to cover symptoms. ...Read more
