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. If you have known ulcer disease, it is wise to limit the NSAIDs or take them with a protective drug that reinforces the liking of the stomach. Avoid drinking a lot when you are being treated for ulcer disease. Good luck and feel better.
