For Inflammatory Conditions: "I have had severe arthritis pain for more than 4 years now and for the first time in over 4 years I have pain free for the last 2 weeks because of Meloxicam. It's a miracle."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "this tackled the back pain without making me drowsy, a major bonus with two kids around. It is hard on the stomach though so I have to take it with omeprazole but that's no big deal. All my other pain meds make me feel so tired all the time, I'm just relieved to find something powerful that doesn't."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I had it for tendinitis. It just made it worse. Even six doctors only described more and more of it. After 4 months of using I put it away. I still have headaches and my vains can be seen all over my body. This is poison. Never use it."

For Osteoarthritis: "I was told by my previous doctor that I need a knee replacement. I'm only 50. My new specialist said let put it of as long as possible with a treatment plan which included movalis and low impact fitness training. I was shocked at the relief it has given me within days. As he said its not a cure, but oh what a relief."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Osteoarthritis: "I have osteoarthritis in my right knee and fingers foot and ankle. I was also diagnosed with a 5th metatarsal stress fracture. Apparently I had the stress fracture for at least a year but thought it was arthritis. I was prescribed 15 mg of mobic daily by a podiatrist for the stress fracture. Within 1 hour of taking it the pain was almost gone. I had been taking 600-1200 mg of ibuprofen on a bad day of flares, sometimes having to take naproxen instead Mobic allows me restful sleep but it does make me drowsy...I need 10 hours of sleep to recover. However I can take it every other day and it still works on both sharp and dull pain. This in the only NSAID that has worked this well for me and I have taken them all for the past 10 years"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I have psoriatic arthritis and started taking 7.5 mg 1x/day for a week. It didn't help a lot. So I went up to 2x/day for a total of 15 mg daily. Within the first 24 hours of being on 15 mg/day, the inflammation and pain in my joints (hands, wrist, neck, shoulders, etc.) was significantly reduced. It's still there, but it's no longer constant. And, I'm able to do fine motor tasks that were causing a great deal of pain before--driving, writing a lot, typing, etc. I have been taking it continuously for several weeks and will continue to do so for now."

For Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis: "I've been on Meloxicam for a month now and my pain has yet to ease up. My doctor also put me on Tramadol to help with the pain, but that doesn't help either."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I used this medication on Saturday with no results in place of my Ibu 600 3x a day. Sunday I used this in combination with flexoral & tramadol with no Results. By Monday morning I was dragging my leg due to all the pain, so I went back to my ibu which brings my pain feom a 10 to an 8. I didn't find any relief from this medication, but that doesn't mean it won't work for others."

Mobic (meloxicam) for Rheumatoid Arthritis: "I have taken Mobic sporadically for the last 3 years. I only take it when I'm really in pain and cannot manage the pain through natural methods. It helps me to sleep, and it helps the pain in my hands and hip. I do not feel groggy when I wake up, but sometimes I am stiff and hurting from sleeping so deeply."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "My husband had been taking this for inflammation for a few months. Meloxicam caused a large bleeding ulcer in his intestine that developed over the few months that he had been taking it. He ended up in the emergency room after he collapsed and lost a lot of blood from internal bleeding. It also gave him a lot of gas and stomach upset. I would not recommend for anyone to take it. It did not do much to relieve his inflammation pain in his shoulder. Please read all side effects that this medication might cause before you start taking it."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "Was given this by my Rhumey doc. I have lupus and was having awful time find something to help with pain. This was the one that helped me finally get some relief and let be apart of life again. I do bloodwork to watch liver and kidneys for this med and another one I am on and in Oct 2015 my liver enzymes spiked and Doc took me off the meloxicam. He re did blood work a week later and levels were normal again. Unfortunately, she is reluctant to put me back. Hopefully can find something to help me fill the void I have without it"

For Osteoarthritis: "Got great relief after about 5 days. Don't know how I would have survived back spasms without it. To protect your gut from ulcers etc, you need to ask your doctor to also prescribe a drug called Nexium and take that in the morning and take the Mobic in the evening with food. Shame it is not good to take this drug long term though."

For Inflammatory Conditions: "This drug did nothing to stop the pain in my back or peripheral joints from ankylosing spondylitis. I had bad headaches with confusion when taking this which is why I stopped taking it and now take Naprosyn and it works way better"

For Inflammatory Conditions: "I have a herniated disk in my back, and experience back pain and knee pain. I had gotten to the point where I could not get out of a chair and weight bear on my right leg. After MRI's of my back, knee, and hips my orthopedist referred me to a neurologist, because he could not figure out what was causing the pain. I was also experiencing numbness and tingling in my feet. My neurologist started me on 7.5 mgs of Mobic. I am now able to get up from a chair and bear weight on my right leg. I have GERD's so I take Prilosec every day. I have not had any side effects. I will say that my pain is not completely gone, but greatly improved! My neurologist also referred me to physical therapy, and will also be doing a nerve conduction test."
