In brief: Non -Steroidal

Meloxicam (Mobic) is a prescription strength non steroidal anti inflammatory medicine.
Specifically inhibits the synthesis of prostaglandins (PGAs) by blocking COX-1 &2 enzyme. Technically not in the muscle relaxer family. However it may indirectly cause relief of muscle cramps/ spasms by inhibiting the PGAs responsible for muscle cramps etc. DO NOT use this product more than 10 days -2 weeks.
