Hello,

Yes, you can take them but, methotrexate and the use of meloxicam taken together can be dangerous.

Methotrexate
When taken both methotrexate and meloxicam, your Oncologist may monitor you more closely and adjust your dose of these drugs.

Check with your Oncologist before you take an NSAID (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) if you are receiving Antineoplastic agents (chemotherapy, drugs used to treat cancer). You may have more adverse effects from your medicines if you take an NSAID(Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) with your Antineoplastic medicines. You may bruise or bleed more easily, or you may have stomach or kidney problems. Also, NSAIDs may hide signs of an infection. Report any unusual symptoms to your Oncologist right away.
