Hi! Meloxicam or mobic can take up to 2 weeks to become fully effective. Do not lie down for 10 minutes after taking it. It is an NSAID (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug commonly prescribed for RA and osteo arthritis, also used for soft tissue pain. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any more questions. I have been on mobic before, but it has been over a year!
