Ask them if it is going to be discontinued.

Your pharmacy may not be able to get piroxicam due to it being a compounded medication. Compounded means to take two or more ingredients mixed together to make this medication. In order to find out more about prescription drugs talk to your pharmacist or your health care provider.
