Mobic (meloxicam) for Inflammatory Conditions: "I've been on Mobic for 2 days along with Flexerill and I am still experiencing excruciating pain. I feel like electric shocks going down my right sciatica."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I was prescribed Mobic for arthritis in my right hip. I lost range of motion and had difficulty putting on my right sock and shoe. After taking this medicine for 3 days I have noticed the hip pain has diminished greatly, about 80% back to pain free. But this medicine has also helped with my other joint pain and stiffness. I now feel closer to my age of 48 instead of feeling 78. Bending over to pick something up off the floor is easy now. I feel great, no side-effects yet."

For Fibromyalgia: "I've had an amazing experience with Meloxicam. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 2 years ago by a rheumatologist. He told me to go home, hire a maid, quit my job and buy a hot tub. I did eventually quit my job, but the pain simply got worse. Enter a neurologist who gave me Cymbalta, which for me was a miracle. It took away about 70% of my pain, but I was still suffering. Enter yet another Rheumy, who put me on Meloxicam. It's been amazing and has taken away quite a bit of the left over pain from Cymbalta. It's not perfect and I'm not sure that ALONE it would do as much for me, but in combination with Cymbalta, it's been phenomenal."

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: "I have been on Meloxicam for three years, and it works very well for arthritis in your hands or fingers. It is very inexpensive. The only side effect may be a little tiredness if you take it every day."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I had pain I my back and my left leg, pain ran down my left leg and there were days I could walk because the pain was so great. Meloxicam was prescribed by a back & spine specialist. I was willing to try anything that would take the pain away. So I took my medicine for the first time and I felt so much better after a few hours. I was so pleased. I had no side affect, I take it every other day and it been working for me."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Inflammatory Conditions: "Effective for my use for autoimmune/inflammatory/arthritis issues however blood pressure rise is trade-off! Feldene also very effective but for obvious reasons not agreeable."

For Fibromyalgia: "I have had Fibromyalgia for about four years now. The pain was so bad I couldn't even roll over in bed without hurting or tie my shoes without excruciating pain. I tried Neurontin, Lyrica and Naproxen, none of which really helped. I was on Cymbalta for awhile and it did help the aches and pains but gave me such bad diarrhea that I couldn't take it. I have been taking Meloxicam now for about a month and cannot believe the difference. I used to couldn't walk a block without having to get someone to get me so I could go home. Now I can walk several blocks without the pain. This is a miracle for me and there are side effects to every medication. The pain being gone is worth it to me."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I have had on and off Plantar Fasciitis for the past few years and my Podiatrist prescribed a 2 month supply of Meloxicam to reduce the swelling and inflammation in my heel. Almost instantly the pain and swelling went away and it is like night and day. I also got a Cortisone shot and the combination of the two have allowed me to resume my normal exercise routine and activity."

For : "I actually had a chest pain...turned out to be arthritis in area where the ribs attach to the sternum. My Dr prescribed Meloxicam. It's been less than a week and I noticed my back & knee pain have disappeared. I then realized it was the medicine and my original issue of chest pain is starting to ease as well."

For Osteoarthritis: "I have been taking meloxicam since I had total knee replacement 6 yrs ago - works great for stiffness and pain. Originally doctor wanted me to take it for 6 months or so after surgery but it helped so much with arthritis in hands, feet, shoulders etc. he advised to keep taking it. Usually I have pretty sensitive stomach but no bothers with meloxicam."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "70 yr old unable to walk, sleep, sit, move without pain. Shoulder hurt so bad in tears. Went to orthopedist and X-rays revealed tear in rotator cuff. He prescribed meloxicam. Take 7.5mg daily and cannot tell you how it has improved my ability to perform routine daily activities. It truly gave me my life back. Although the prescribed dose is one a day, I try to make my prescription last longer by taking one every other day as it eliminated ALL my pain and my mobility is like a normal person. No major side effects thus far. Never want to give this up. Thank God for meloxicam."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Osteoarthritis: "I have arthritis in feet, right knee, both hands, and right elbow. When both Vioxx and Bextra were taken off the market I had to turn to Vicodin to relieve pain, but was so afraid of addiction I did not take it very often. Then doctor tried me on Meloxicam. It's much easier to function, does a great job on the swelling, and an adequate job on the pain for the most part. No side effects, and still not as good as Vioxx, but it's better than over the counter, and better than an opiate."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Inflammatory Conditions: "I have been taking Mobic for 4 years now. Having a herniated bulging disc it helped me so much. I had an operation (laminectomy) to cut away part of the disc. 2 years later after the op I have the same problem again along with nerve pain. Without Mobic I couldn't walk. I also take Oxycontin to relieve all pain. I hear all stories how Mobic damages your liver etc. I've tried twice to come off it, but straight away the pain is severe along with headaches. "

Mobic (meloxicam) for Inflammatory Conditions: "I have been having lower back pain for almost two years. I've been to physical therapy twice, currently I'm having osteopathic manipulative treatment, but with only three visits so far, have not gotten much relief. I also have neuropathic pain from shingles in my lower spine. I have had pain in my hands and fingers for a long time. I started getting nodules on my finger joints and can not wear my wedding rings any longer. I finally told my doctor to refer me to a specialist. In the meantime, he prescribed Mobic. In three days of taking this, I can actually close my fist without pain, my back pain has gone down, my knees don't feel like they are on fire. I feel like I can go out and start my walking routine again."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Osteoarthritis: "Mobic was prescribed to me by my podiatrist after finding that I have Posterior Tibial Tendonitis, Osteoarthritis in my big toe joint, and a heel spur all on my left foot. I find that 7.5 mg Mobic has really helped with the Osteoarthritis and other aches and pains that I have developed in the past few years. I find it best to take before bed, as I have a 4 month old daughter to take care of. Throughout the day I am taking Tramadol, wrapping, and icing my foot for pain relief. I find that the combination works really well. In the middle of the night I am ready and able to take care of my baby girl."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Inflammatory Conditions: "I am using Mobic for a rotator cuff strain and myofacial pain in my shoulder stabilizers. It works great for that. I made the mistake of using it without food and it has made me very sick. Dizziness and nausea. I also found I have to take it at night because it makes me very drowsy."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Osteoarthritis: "I was also taking Vioxx, then was switched to Celebrex, which did not work for me. One Mobic provides me the relief I need on most days. Biggest side effect is constipation, but flaxseed oil plus stool softeners help with this. I have been taking Mobic for 8 years."

For Rheumatoid Arthritis: "I have had rheumatoid arthritis for 10 years, was in remission in my early 30s and around 32/33 began having serious pain and swelling in my hands. I also began to have severe pain in my hips and wrists last Summer, 2011 to Fall. Began taking Meloxixam in October of 2011 and once very slight flare up in my thumb in the first week and since?! Absolutely no PAIN! I'm still a bit in shock, but will not "look a gift horse in the mouth"."

For Osteoarthritis: "I have had severe osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia pain for the past 5 years. I have been receiving steroid and Synvisc shots for several years. I had been taking up to 1600 mg of ibuprofen a day, even Vicoden did not help my pain. My new Doctor gave me a trial sample of meloxicam 7.5 mg. After taking 1 dose my pain and mobility improved dramatically. I have not been able to walk up the stairs without using both handrails in years. I cannot believe the results. It does bother my stomach a bit, but I take Protonix and take meloxicam only after eating. This medication has changed my life!"

For Osteoarthritis: "Can now live a normal life since I began taking it. I have Ostearthritis in my hands, feet, knees and back. The meloxicam has made it possible for me to move without pain and stiffness. Before taking it, I had such problems in moving at all. I am 46 and moved about as if I was 200 yrs old. Now, I move about like I did when I was 35. I am very glad my doctor prescribed it for myself."

For Osteoarthritis: "I used to work at a job where it was required to lift heavy objects at a quick pace for many hours non-stop in warm and cold climate. After several years of doing this, I began to have severe stiffness and pain, slowness in walking, moving, bending and lifting. Even getting up from a seated position was a feat in itself! I began to think my life was over to ever move normally again! I went to my doctor and he diagnosed me with Osteoarthritis. I was given several brand name medications as treatment - to no avail. Finally, I was prescribed Meloxicam 15 mg and it gave me my life back! I can walk, bend, lift, move without agony and stiffness! I have been on it for 1 year and have no problems at all. I take 1 pill every day."

For Osteoarthritis: "I have been suffering with osteoarthritis in both knees and hips, sleepless nights and anxiety when I have to move (especially after sitting a length of time). Meloxicam improved my pain and mobility in just a couple of days. I take 15mg every day and I am extremely thankful for this medicine!"
