I use meloxicam for rheumatoid arthritis and a damaged cervical disc. I generally take it only when pain if elevated, though bottle says take one daily. Would it be more effective if I took daily? Am afraid it will not work as well if I get acclimated to it.
Is meloxicam effective if not taken daily?

Of course it works better if taken daily, it works by reducing the inflammation, and with a disease like RA you need to do this all the time.
I have been taking Meloxicam for little over a year for rheumatoid arthritis, I went off of it for 4 days so my family Dr could see something and that was a big mistake because I could hardly walk by day 4. I have taken out everyday , but even taking a medication sparatically can build up an immunity to it because it is still in your system and how are you to know if it is even effective for your condition unless you take it as directed, just a thought. Hope this helps good luck.
