Sometimes Mobic is not enough. Can I increase dosage occasionally, or take something on top of it?
What can I take in addition to Mobic for occasional additional pain relief?

I took Mobic and my doctor told me it was an arthritis medicine. He also gave me percocet 5/325 at that time, and it worked ok, but I still had alot of pain. It is hard to answer your question with out more info... your age, why you are taking it, what else have you tried, do you have insurance, a good doctor, etc... we need a history of your problem. Then you can get someone here that can really help you. Alot of good people here and you can pretty much tell them anything, and they won't judge you. Most of us have the same problems... PAIN!!! Keep us posted! :-) We can relate!
Hi, as already stated you should not increase the dose of the mobic without your dr's advice. You haven't written what kind of pain you are taking the mobic for? If you are generally healthy and don't have any significant illnesses, you can take paracetamol with mobic and codeine, or a combination of the 2 - co-codamol. These are otc meds. It is always best to check with your dr first but you'd be safe with these.
You can take acetaminophen pretty safely with Mobic (between doses). Run it past your primary Dr to be sure.
