Reviews for Meloxicam to treat Inflammatory Conditions

"I'm a 43 year old female and was taken this for headaches due to post concussion syndrome from a car accident 4 months ago. I only took this meloxican for 4 days. So many side effects. Then I noticed yesterday all my body hair was gone. Not waiting for my hair on my head to start falling out! I also had rashes, skin tingling, bloating, not being able to empty my bladder and many more. Whatever benefit I got is not worth it. I read in some of the other posts of people losing there hair and they have stayed on it! Why? Losing hair is under rare side effects. Doesn't look like from all the posts! I'm going to go with what I wanted in the first place, CBD oil."

"My doctor put me on Meloxicam for Osteo Arthritis in knees. I could barely get around & exercise was out. I took the pill & next morning forgot all about my pain. It was a miracle to me. I could move around like normal & walk my dog. I still use it."

"I take this for neck shoulder pain & pinched nerve. Great med when taking regularly but my doctor won't refill again until I go see him for a checkup. I started trying to not take as much or sometimes none. Having pain in my teeth and head. Have no idea what is going on but wonder if this med makes you worse when getting off of it. Does it make your nerves more sensitive? I will go for that checkup soon."

"Prescribed 7.5mg daily 4 days ago for unbearable right hip and knee pain (was taking loads of ibuprophen AND acetaminophen 4 X a day...but not happy tho it helped...just not enough and worried about stomach. First Melodicam dose: no change. Took 1 and 1/2 second morning...no change. Took another a few hours later ( it was cold and raining which exacerbates pain): no change. Took a third: no change. Went back to old OTC last night...trying to save prescription for day time. This AM, sun was out and I had NO pain. I have to assume it was Meloxicam. Back to 15mg a day. Love it so far."

"Still don't know the details of what I was actually have/had but a few months back I was suffering from severe joint pain. My doc prescribed me this and within two weeks I was nearly pain free. There was the occasional achiness but I could stand without being in pain...actually walk long distances. Worked for me for my inflammation in my joints...mainly knees and hands."

"I have had severe arthritis pain for more than 4 years now and for the first time in over 4 years I have pain free for the last 2 weeks because of Meloxicam. It's a miracle."

"this tackled the back pain without making me drowsy, a major bonus with two kids around. It is hard on the stomach though so I have to take it with omeprazole but that's no big deal. All my other pain meds make me feel so tired all the time, I'm just relieved to find something powerful that doesn't."

"I had it for tendinitis. It just made it worse. Even six doctors only described more and more of it. After 4 months of using I put it away. I still have headaches and my vains can be seen all over my body. This is poison. Never use it."

"I have psoriatic arthritis and started taking 7.5 mg 1x/day for a week. It didn't help a lot. So I went up to 2x/day for a total of 15 mg daily. Within the first 24 hours of being on 15 mg/day, the inflammation and pain in my joints (hands, wrist, neck, shoulders, etc.) was significantly reduced. It's still there, but it's no longer constant. And, I'm able to do fine motor tasks that were causing a great deal of pain before--driving, writing a lot, typing, etc. I have been taking it continuously for several weeks and will continue to do so for now."

"I used this medication on Saturday with no results in place of my Ibu 600 3x a day. Sunday I used this in combination with flexoral & tramadol with no Results. By Monday morning I was dragging my leg due to all the pain, so I went back to my ibu which brings my pain feom a 10 to an 8. I didn't find any relief from this medication, but that doesn't mean it won't work for others."

"My husband had been taking this for inflammation for a few months. Meloxicam caused a large bleeding ulcer in his intestine that developed over the few months that he had been taking it. He ended up in the emergency room after he collapsed and lost a lot of blood from internal bleeding. It also gave him a lot of gas and stomach upset. I would not recommend for anyone to take it. It did not do much to relieve his inflammation pain in his shoulder. Please read all side effects that this medication might cause before you start taking it."

"Was given this by my Rhumey doc. I have lupus and was having awful time find something to help with pain. This was the one that helped me finally get some relief and let be apart of life again. I do bloodwork to watch liver and kidneys for this med and another one I am on and in Oct 2015 my liver enzymes spiked and Doc took me off the meloxicam. He re did blood work a week later and levels were normal again. Unfortunately, she is reluctant to put me back. Hopefully can find something to help me fill the void I have without it"

"This drug did nothing to stop the pain in my back or peripheral joints from ankylosing spondylitis. I had bad headaches with confusion when taking this which is why I stopped taking it and now take Naprosyn and it works way better"

"I have a herniated disk in my back, and experience back pain and knee pain. I had gotten to the point where I could not get out of a chair and weight bear on my right leg. After MRI's of my back, knee, and hips my orthopedist referred me to a neurologist, because he could not figure out what was causing the pain. I was also experiencing numbness and tingling in my feet. My neurologist started me on 7.5 mgs of Mobic. I am now able to get up from a chair and bear weight on my right leg. I have GERD's so I take Prilosec every day. I have not had any side effects. I will say that my pain is not completely gone, but greatly improved! My neurologist also referred me to physical therapy, and will also be doing a nerve conduction test."

"Injury in my letf glut = sciatica. Pain strikes without warning & literally makes me gasp & grab onto something. Then it's a constant throbbing / sharp pain shooting from butt to little toe. GOOD: 15mg at bedtime; 3 days = NO pain. No pain getting out of bed, no cringing at a flight of stairs, no having to sit in Epsom salt baths until I'm a prune - NO pain. BAD: I had never been constipated. Never. Until Mobic. I needed softeners, fibre & finally laxative = limited success. UGLY: real 10lb weight gain. Miserable/ want to faint 1000 calories a day for 3 weeks = 1 lb loss. 2 weeks off Mobic = all weight off but pain is back. 600mg ibuprofen = useless. So my choice is fat or in pain. Harder decision than you think. Maybe Tramadol?"

"My significant other died within 5 days of starting this medication. Please double check with your prescriber before starting this medication, as this was the only different one he began to use. We believe he died from a massive stroke."

"Took Voix years ago and began to have heart fluttering spells.Later it was taken off the market by the FDA.Now I have taken meloxicanan for a few years and started having the same fluttering in my heart.So I stopped taking it for about a year now and the fluttering stopped.Now I don't take any anti inflammatory drugs. I Don't trust generics at all and people should get educated on what drug companies are getting away with."

"I was prescribed this by my doctor for my swollen knee after receiving my first cortisone injection. I started noticing I was always dehydrated. I was ok with that cause it relieved the swelling in my knee, but then the headaches started. It was dull at first, but always in the bottom right side of my head. They progressively got worse. Within a week of my first dose, I had to stop taking it. It took 3 days before the headaches stopped. Never will I take that again."
