Have had pain in shoulders, for arms and hips so much that walking and sitting was impossible, was put in steroids for a month, then Tramadol then meloxicam, took two doses, pain very much reduced, stomach was a bit off today but ok, my big concern is weight gain anyone on this drug for inflammation have bad side effects and if so what drug are you on that gives you relief with less side effects ?
I haven't heard any of my clients experience weight gain by taking Meloxicam. Steroids and tramadol have more side effects than Meloxicam. The less invasive anti-inflammatory Rx is Ibuprofen 600mg 3x a day. One has to take 400mg at least for reducing the inflammation. 400mg or 600mg is prescription strength which can only be prescribed by the health care professional.
