In brief: About an hour

Mobic (meloxicam) is a nonsteroidal anti inflammatory medication.
If you are taking it fir pain, it should kick in after about 30-60 minutes. If you are taking for inflammation, say with a tendonitis, it may take a few days to a week for the affects to be noticed. Hope you feel better!

In brief: Up to 2 weeks

If you haven't seen an effect by 2 weeks of daily, maximum use, then it's not likely to have any effect.
Most of my patients notice an effect within the first 3-7 days.
