can i take meloxican with atelonol
It needs to be monitored, however please check for more details from the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the meds.
tenolol ↔ meloxicam
Applies to: atenolol, meloxicam
MONITOR: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may attenuate the antihypertensive effect of beta-blockers. The proposed mechanism is NSAID-induced inhibition of renal prostaglandin synthesis, which results in unopposed pressor activity producing hypertension. In addition, NSAIDs can cause fluid retention, which also affects blood pressure. Indomethacin and piroxicam have been reported to have greater attenuating effects than other NSAIDs, and indomethacin effects may be significant in patients with eclampsia.
MANAGEMENT: Patients receiving a beta-blocker who require prolonged (greater than 1 week) concomitant therapy with an NSAID should have blood pressure monitored more closely following initiation, discontinuation, or change of dosage of the NSAID. The interaction is not expected to occur with low doses (e.g., low-dose aspirin) or intermittent short-term administration of NSAIDs.
