Yes you can stop taking Meloxicam without requiring a withdrawal process. Meloxicam is an NSAID like aspirin is and there are no addictive properties involved. I have been on and off Meloxicam over the years and any time I had a surgery I had to stop taking it for up to a week prior. The only side effect was the resumption of the pain which it was controlling. I had since stopped taking Meloxicam permanently and substituted it with Celebrex and I simply stopped changed over one day. Hope this helps answer your question.
