Meloxicam is easier on the stomach than Ibuprofen. That is the biggest difference, since they are both nonsteroidals' they work the same. However be careful and always always consult you Dr. because Meloxicam is a little harder on you than ibuprofen if you are on BP meds. It thins the blood, so if you are on a Blood thinner it will increase its affect and my be dangerous.
