I took a nuerotin in the am, it is causing me to itch. Can I take a meloxicam in the pm , of the same day.. This is for shoulder and arm pain
Hi i think you shoud ask the pharmacist, but i can tellyou this maloxicam carries a lot of side affects. I had to stop taking it. It also can interfere with other medications. Please be very careful with this drug. I hope this helps.
Becky, I take meloxicam 1x daily. But if you read the pamphlet, it indicates that you should not take neurontin (Advil or Alleve) while you are taking meloxicam. They are the same thing, but Meloxicam is just a stronger dose. You don't want to cause yourself serious stomach problems or ulcers. Double check with your pharmacist and your physician before taking both. Hope this helps. StarGlitter
Neurontin and Meloxicam are not the same medicine. Neurontin is an anti seizure medicine also used for nerve pain and fibromyalgia. Meloxicam is an NSAID (non steroidal anti inflammatory), in the same family as ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve). I currently take Lyrica, which is in the same family as Neurontin, and prescription strength naproxen on a daily basis.
I also checked for possible interactions and found none. If you're still not sure ask your pharmacist.
