Reviews for Meloxicam

Sort by:

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!"

For Fibromyalgia: "I have tried every single medication for my Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. My rheumatologist gave me Meloxicam for non-specific joint swelling, and it actually was more beneficial for my fibromyalgia. Within 5 days, I stopped having morning stiffness, and my generalized muscle pain is almost completely gone! I am amazed and now have a much more optimistic outlook on living!"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I started taking this about 3-4 weeks ago for Hip Bursitis. I'm 42 and very active with running, golfing, lifting, yoga, you name it. Pain started about 1.5 years ago and I tried physical therapy, stretching multiple times a day, heat/ice, which only offered temporary relief. I took this and within 2 days the pain was gone. I do notice the hip, it will stiffen up a little when golfing but that's about it. Great stuff! After reading all the I reviews, I'm really hoping I don't have to take this forever... just as needed."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Tendonitis: "The side effects are well worth the pain/inflammation relief attributed to this therapy. One of the few that ACTUALLY works for me. Does require regular monitoring by medical practitioner."

For : "My doctor prescribed this when the naproxen that was previously prescribed caused chest pains. (I have high blood pressure and am on 25mgs Hydrochlorothiazide). The first day taking this medicine seemed wonderful, the pain was manageable and I felt okay. By the second day I noticed a couple of little things like loss of appetite and upset stomach (although I took the medicine with food), but brushed it off as minor and ok. By the third morning, I was having major chills, blurred vision, nausea, and a migraine level headache. Needless to say, I have not taken Meloxicam again."

For Osteoarthritis: "I started taking this pill after 3 1/2 of total misery being in horrific pain. I saw a new doctor and he told me to try it. I had no confidence in that pill at all. 2 day's later I had absolutely no pain. What a feeling to not feel pain anymore! Worked for me I'm happy to say."

For : "I've suffered with a bad back for almost 40 years. I have spondololethesis amongst other issues with my back. I was just trying to figure out when to have back surgery because I was sick of living with the daily pain. Asked my doctor why I hadn't tried anything for arthritis. They wrote me a script and I am now a new man. Sure I have some pain now and again mostly from overdoing it but I am very happy at this point with what this medicine has done for me. Prior to this script I would use Tylenol 3 as needed. I haven't needed the codeine since taking this. I am very satisfied."

For Fibromyalgia: "I'm not so sure my condition was fibromyalgia, but it probably was. I was in excruciating pain in my muscles and tendon-joints, for weeks, ibuprofen and aspirin or paracetamol did absolutely nothing. Codeine helped, but I am allergic to it. I was put on meloxicam by my doctor, and within a day the pain faded, now I take two 7.5mg tablets a day and I am absolutely pain free, not even a minor ache anywhere. Meloxicam is a wonder drug for ache's and pains, both minor and severe."

For Osteoarthritis: "I was prescribed meloxicam for pain in hands, feet, back, and shoulders. It worked well, the pain wasn't completely gone, but I feel 70% better. I was really excited until I realized I have had a sore throat and dry mouth for over a week. I will see my doctor, because I'm afraid that my constipation along with these symptoms may make this not the medicine for me. If that's the case, I will really be sorry. I've enjoyed such a substantial reduction in my arthritis pain."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Osteoarthritis: "Pain in neck, shoulders, hips, hands and knees gone within a day! I can ride in a car and I'm sleeping without waking every hour. It's been a miracle for me. No side effects. I'm terrified I may have to give this up due to stomach issues. I can't go back to the pain. I feel fabulous after years of misery."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Inflammatory Conditions: "I rate Mobic a 10! For the past four months I have been in tremendous pain and could barley walk, sit, or get out of the bath tub and my hands were extremely stiff. I also could not sleep at night due to pain. Mobic has truly helped me. I have my life back! It is truly incredible. I do however take Prilosec to coat my stomach before taking it. I've only been taking this medicine for two days. I have NO pain."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Osteoarthritis: "I have had knee pain for many years and after 2 operations it got worse. Sleeping was a problem with severe sharp pain. A new doctor recommended to me, found I had severe arthritis after an MRI and put me on Mobic and wow! Why had no doctor ever prescribed this before? Pain relief within the week was amazing and my sore back improved also. I have a new life and no side effects to date and I have been taking it for 10 months. I'm 50 and feeling 40 again instead of 70."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I'm 28 years old, I have a C5-6 disc herniation which causes me to have a lot of radiculopathy down my left arm. I frequently ice my neck and go to physical therapy 3x a week. I also started incorporating this medicine into my therapy a little over a month ago. Currently I'm asymptomatic but the side effects are bothering me a bit. The heartburn and constipation annoy me yet I'd rather have them then have all the pain/numbness and burning back."

For : "I took Vioxx until it was taken off the market and have taken Celebrex for the past 7 years. My orthopedist has had me taking these for the past 10 yrs and my family doctor wanted me to try Meloxicam. I been taking it for 3 months and, not only does it work a lot better but it's cheaper I'm having both knees replaced in January but I wish I had known about Meloxicam. "

For Inflammatory Conditions: "knee and back pain: I have been using meloxicam for about 2 weeks and I can see very much improvement of the pain in my knee and also back. I feel so much more active. I exercise almost every day for 45 minutes to an hour and this is so much easier now. I am 76."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Osteoarthritis: "Several years ago, I was put on Mobic for right knee problems--bone on bone. When I finally needed a knee replacement, I had to go off Mobic for a week before the surgery. Immediately, I got creaky and all my joints hurt and ached. It hurt to walk even a short distance. At that point, I realized what a blessing Mobic is. I thought that if some of my deceased relatives had Mobic, they might have lived longer. I remember how badly they suffered and I understand. The pain was unbearable. I'm still on it. I am 65."

For Fibromyalgia: "I have fibromyalgia. Meloxicam together with Naproxen, the only medicines that gave me considerable relief; although as expected, it is still not enough for fibromyalgia in particular. However, it is surprisingly good for a NSAID."
