Isuffer from a head and back pain from a car accident and being severely beaten by my ex-husband and a doctor that I saw at the ER for a really bad headache gave me 2 of those pills to take at home if I needed it after they treated me with a shot for my headache. But it is something I have never heard of & I don't like to take anything I don't know about.

Meloxicam is the generic name for Mobic. It is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory/nonopioid analgesic. It's good for pain, but it isn't meant to be used daily for long periods of time. If you do take it, make sure to drink a full glass of water to get it down and don't take anything with alcohol, aspirin, or acetaminophen in it because it will lessen the pill's effectiveness. In short, it's a little stronger than Tylenol and has little chance of becoming addictive. Hope this helps.

I currently use this medication I don't believe it has ever helped me with a headache, but possibly that is because they are from medicine. This med should be helpful enough to withstand minor pain. Also this helps with inflammation, in which will relieve some of the pressure that is put on sensitive and or hurtful parts of joints and other parts of the body. Hope this is helpful. I wouldn't say its a direct pain medicine but... the parts of the body that this helps will relieve some pain.As always check with your DOC.
