I did the one thing you are not supposed to do - NOT read your medication guidelines! I was perscribed 15mg of meloxicam and I took about 6-8 pills within 24 hours - SO STUPID!
I have pain on the upper right side of my abdomen - and I now see this much of a medicine like this could cause some severe damage!
It's been about 2 days since and it really is starting to hurt. Should I go to the Emergency Room? What should I do?
Yes go to the er. It could be something else altogether if its getting worse. Or you could have gastritis from the mobic. Guess you found out there is a reason the pharmacist gives you info on the drug he's giving you.
You need to go to ER or Urgent Care today. You may be bleeding in your stomach. Mobic is very hard on the stomach, especially in that high a dose in 24 hours. Dont wait anymore-go!
