I was on this drug for rheumatoid arthritis. After about 3-4 weeks of taking it I became very angry at home and at work. I didn’t think it was the mobic causing my anger until I stopped it and came back to my normal self after a week without it. I will manage my pain with Tylenol and aspirin from now on.
I just started mobic and am taking 15m as needed. Suddenly noticed I’m having anger feelings when I take it. Also am feeling mildly depressed. I am also on lexapro for anxiety which has worked wonders for me the past few years. Don’t know if this could be interfering with my lexapro or not, but twice I have gotten so angry at my husband for the tiniest things and he is like “what in the world is wrong with you” and I can feel that it is not me. I know it’s been 5 years since you posted but i felt like you or someone might be helped by my experience. I also teach 2nd grade and I feel myself being so impatient with my students which is also not like me., and I’m noticing it’s when I’m taking the mobic. So I don’t know but I’m trying to find out myself why this is happening. Plan to tell my dr. He only put me on “as needed” at my request because I hate taking medicine any more than I have to.
Do you mean Methotrexate and meloxicam? I am assuming he has rheumatoid arthritis? Neither one has a side effects of anger or behavior changes. Sometimes children will react this way when something happens beyond his control and a lifelong disease like rheumatoid arthritis could trigger angry feelings in a child plus the fact that it is painful and pain can make people short with others and grumpy. Couple that with the fact that boys, at a certain age (between 13 and 30, sometimes longer) are just angry by nature. I saw both of my sweet little boys turn 13 or so and turn into little sour, crabby hateful spites! It can just be hormones. They get better as they approach their mid twenties. Talk to his Dr about what you are seeing. If they think it is more than usual "boy" behavior then they may have him seen for a psychiatric eval.
Meloxicam can cause depression, which has an effect of anger. Did you spell the other med correctly? I'm not finding anything with that spelling.
