How long does it take for meloxicam to work?


Truth is offensive 7 April 2021

As Mariamafa indicated the time frame depends on what form the drug is in. Your metabolic rate also plays a role in regards to time frame. I'm guessing you are taking capsule form and if so the time frame would be 3 - 6 hours. Be sure to eat with this medication because it is hard on the stomach. -- Pharmacist in Dallas

After administration of a single dose of meloxicam, the median maximum plasma concentrations are reached within 2 hours for the oral suspension and within 5 to 6 hours for the solid oral forms (tablets and capsules). After repeated dosing, steady state is reached within 3 to 5 days.
