I told my doctor that I cannot take ibuprofen due to history of a stomach ulcer. He then prescribed me meloxicam saying it would work better than tylenol, but not hurt my stomach like ibuprofen. However, upon filling the prescription I see that it comes with gastrointestinal warnings similar to ibuprofen. Is meloxicam a safe alternative to ibuprofen for someone with a history of ulcers?
