Meloxicam is a prescription NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). Aleve (Naproxen), Advil (Ibuprofen) are over the counter NSAIDs. These all are in the same class of drug. I am currently on Meloxicam andit does upset my stomach sometimes.. Always be sure to eat something prior to taking it. Remember that your doctor has prescribed Meloxicam for a reason and if you are having issues with it please speak to your doctor first before stopping it. He/She may recommend that you take Advil or Aleve instead. I do not recommend stopping any medication that your doctor has prescribed without consulting your doctor first. Best of luck to you!
