Mobic (meloxicam) not working anymore. What else can I take?

- mobic, rheumatoid arthritis, meloxicam, dosage, inflammatory conditions
I've used this medication successfully for a number of years. But now it is no longer working for me. I'm on the highest allowed dosage (15mg) so cannot increase dosage.
Has anyone else found they need something stronger - and if so, what did you take please?

Some times the system/body gets immune to meds when they have been taken for a long period of time, would recommend to change/switch you need to consult a doc/pharmacist, please do not alter/change the dose without consulting the doc/pharmacist who will prescribe an adequate alternate. Take care, wish the best.

It seems like the one 7.5 pill worked for 3 to 4 days and I felt great. I was up'd to 15 and it really doesnt give me much relief, if any at all.
