In brief: None interact with

injection, which is a small amount of drug in one spot and not everywhere.
Frankly, the slight risk is the meloxicam (aspirin like drugs potentially increasing the bleeding risk of the injection). then there are separate issues about the safety of narcotics/tylenol/etc cannot say in your particular case, but generally, safe.
