Review by broken man (taken for less than 1 month):
piroxicam for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder: Just started this in the gel form, I'm taking it with codine and paracetamol and that seems to do the trick nicely before was just the tablets and they wouldn't touch it but so far so good
piroxicam for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder: I've been taking 20 mg once a day along with Skelaxin for my Tempromandibular Joint Disorder pain for about a year now. What a lifesaver! For those with TMJ problems taking only Piroxicam, talk to your talk about adding the Skelaxin. I'm no longer crying at the end of a work day!
piroxicam for Rheumatoid Arthritis: I've tried every NSAID on the market and Piroxicam is the best. I've been using it for about a year along with Nexium (to reduce stomach problems). No side effects thus far.
Feldene (piroxicam) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: I take 20mg Feldene every morning, stiffness is manageable for most of the day. No side effects in two months. Like any other medication there may be risks involved, but for me it has worked very well.
piroxicam for Osteoarthritis: I was given this because of swelling on top of right hand and pain in arm. I have a baker cyst in left knee and was told I have osteoarthritis. I am 61 and the pain and swelling came on suddenly. I have been on this medicine for 2 weeks and do not feel any difference.
piroxicam for Osteoarthritis: I have been taking Piroxicam 20mg once daily for several years, mostly for bad knees and as a general anti-inflammatory. I take it in the morning with breakfast. It works very well for me, with no side effects at all.
I am very careful to always take it with food and milk, and I have my liver enzymes tested yearly.
I chose this NSAID for several reasons: 1)It is a low dosage taken once a day; 2) It appeared to have fewer gastrointestinal issues than others; 3) I cannot take Naproxen; 5) Unlike Lodine or Vioxx, it does not give me any sensation of being mentally "drugged"; 6) As a generic, it is EXTREMELY inexpensive (< $10/100 pills).

Feldene (piroxicam) for Pain: I have been taking this medication for pain in my foot. My Dr. gave it to me for planters faciitis. I was in such pain that I could barely walk when getting out of bed or standing after sitting for a while. One pill lasts for 24 hours, and works great. I haven't been taking it long, so don't know yet if I will get any side effects, but works good for pain, and I can still function normally.

Feldene (piroxicam) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: I've been taking Feldene since August 2009, so approximately 2 months. The only side effects I've noticed is that I bruise much more easily than I did before.
I haven't really noticed a big change in the pain and swelling in my fingers/hands from taking it though.
Feldene (piroxicam) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: I had every neurological side effect possible leading to a trip to the ER. I took it for ten days. It took at least two weeks to get completely out of my system and I was back to a normal self. For pain it worked great.
piroxicam for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder: I am using this drug for the first time to ease pain and inflammation due to Temporomandibular joint disorder. Even taken with Nexium (which I have taken for half of a year), it upsets my stomach. The pain is lessened, but not by much. Also, the swelling has continued to get worse. Some drugs work better for some, while some work better for others. I don't discourage anyone from using it. Good luck!
Feldene (piroxicam) for Osteoarthritis: I have severe osteoarthritis in my left knee since an infection from surgery in 1972. I started using Feldene around 1983 when I had a severe flare up of pain. I have a strong aversion to pills of any sort but I regard Feldene as a miracle drug. My pain cleared up in days. A 30 day supply would last me for better than a year since I would only take when needed. I've found that it works best when taken in conjunction with exercise because it is the exercise that is the true "cure" for the problem. It seems to smooth the arthritis and perhaps provide other natural relief. The Feldene makes the activity more tolerable and leads to a faster cure. When I get lazy and inactive the problem comes back.

Feldene (piroxicam) for Osteoarthritis: Taking 20mg of Feldene with a small snack to lessen any irritation and has helped the inflammation of osteoarthritis in my spine. I have had pretty good results by paying attention to that. That said, NSAIDs have their limit as far as advanced OA goes and I have had to add other things but it does what it's supposed to do, reduce inflammation pain. One happy side effect, reduced monthy pains at that time of the month.

Feldene (piroxicam) for Osteoarthritis: Have used it for about 15 years as condition is progressing. Only use it until pain subsides and stop as soon as I can. The maximum time required has been one week and in most cases two or three days are sufficient. There have been long periods between the strong pains and I wait for it to be quite bad before using medication so I do not want to overuse and lose the ability to use the milder drugs.

piroxicam for Pain: I was introduced to the painkiller for periods cramps in 2005 and it worked magic. A single pill takes me through a period of 5 days. It gives me relief to go though my job and other duties normally. I wonder whether there are any side effects even though i take one pill per month and at times i dont. I hope am not at any risk as i feel the pill is God sent.
