I have been taking this medication for several months and I do not notice any improvement.
Hi, I took meloxicam for several years until my stomach could no longer take it. I did prefer it over the celebrex I take now. If you are not noticing any improvement, you should go back to your dr and look into an alternative anti-inflammatory. There are other choices available.
Yes, I have found that the generic Mobic 'meloxicam' does not work for me either. I did have success with the Mobic. However, Mobic now costs 600.00 for a 3 month refill. So I am not taking it any longer. When I first started taking Mobic, it was ony 35.00 for 3 months supply. I would like to know the real difference between Mobic and meloxicam and why the costs difference.
I had severe skin allergies with this medicine, my faced flushed, blisters on my skin and in my mouth, and hives. My regular MD and dermatologist missed the diagnosis even though I told them both I was taking this medication. Discovered the problem when I started journaling what I ingested to figure out my allergy.
I was prescribed meloxicam for joint pain. It worked beautifully. But then I started getting mouth sores and had to discontinue it. I'm back to stiff joints.
