Better to take Meloxicam or Aleve for arthritis.
Have history of A-fib, taking Enalapril, Baby aspirin, atorvastatin. Meloxicam is a prescription med. Aleve(naprosyn) is OTC does not need a doctors prescription Meloxicam does not upset the stomach as much as Aleve but maybe not as strong an antiinflammatory as Aleve. Follow label directions or med guideline sheet in your pharmacy pick up bag
