Reviews for Meloxicam to treat Inflammatory Conditions

"I am so glad to see these reviews. I thought I was going nuts with some of the side effects of Mobic. I have been taking it for about a month now. I was given this med for inflammation due to severe Planters Fasciitis. It has done nothing for my pain. I have to take it at night because literally makes me feel high for some reason. I get vision issues from it and the weight gain about 10/12 pounds since I started taking it. I have always held my weight good and then suddenly gaining that's what I'm linking it to. I just haven't felt 100% since I have been on this. I don't think this is going to be for me. I know my doctor wanted to use this instead of taking Advil but way to many side effects for my liking. I have had stomach issues and urinary issues as well. I tried it and I don't recommend it especially if you are sensitive to medicine anyway. I had to stop Lyrica to for the same reason to many side effects. I was using that for Fibromyalgia."

"My daughter after taking Meloxicam 15mg for 30 days for a nerve in her foot starting experiencing severe abdomen pain. She developed an ovarian cyst on her right side. She had to have emergency surgery due to it flipped her ovary. Her infection was so bad she almost died. They had to remove her ovary and she was only 17yr old! My niece just finished the same dosage for nerve in her shoulder. Since then has been experiencing abdomen pain. Went to dr today and did scan that show an ovarian cyst on her left ovary!! Women should not take this medicine!! This needs to be reported."

"The drug certainly helped numb my knee pain from my meniscus tear removal surgery. But it came with an additional pain - severe upset stomach. For 6 or 7 hours I have had to make numerous trips to bathroom, maybe 30 in total? Only 3 of those trips I loose stools the other times were not productive at all. Every time I went back to lay down the pain would instantly return and urge to use bathroom. I don't really know if that is a good trade for the pain. Tomorrow I will just try Ibuprofen instead. This is insane."

"I have chronic lower spinal pain, pain from foot injuries, from a fractured pelvis 10 years ago, what my docs have said is arthritis, and fibromyalgia. I was prescribed this med and took the first dose last night before bed. Woke a few hours later, could not go back to sleep, dizzy, still in pain, and had the worst early morning leg cramps I have ever experienced- cried out in pain. If my windows had been open anyone who heard me might of thought I was getting attacked. Upon waking I was still in pain, and sooooo tired. Not taking another dose."

"I started taking this medicine a week ago and did see a slight positive change with my joint pain. Still had pain in my wrists. Have had stomach pains and what I thought was just MAJOR bloating was actually me gaining 10 pounds in 7 days. It was hard for me to squeeze into my jeans this morning so I knew something was up! Will definitely stop taking this pill! Not worth gaining 10 pounds per week."

"My Dr. Prescribed for back/shoulder/neck pain. 7.5 mg. It helped tremendously with the pain, but the headaches were horrible and my 5 ft frame that weighed 115, ballooned to 127 lbs. I tossed it after that."

"Went to Dr with neck and lower back discomfort, he said something about sciatica nerve etc etc. Said I was fine and was giving me an anti inflammatory. Asked him to check BP which was fine. Later filled prescription at Pharmacy, came home , there was no pamphlet in box for medication at all just the pills. I took one at around 9pm and within an hour my heart was racing , left arm felt weird, I had awful gas, was dizzy and felt totally weird. I started to google and found out what this medication was and all about the side effects.(I’m not allergic to anything and have never had side effects) not that I take much but on the odd occasion of needing meds all has been fine. Had the worst night, barely slept , slept a bit in am, have awful headache in morning. Palpitations and gas subsided somewhat but I realize this must be a slow release pill so effects will last a while. Never ever again will I take this. Worst experience ever."

"I have had many illnesses and have taken many medicines throughout the years. But I took meloxicam and tried it twice both times not close to any other medicines. Both times I had an extreme reaction of jerking, hallucinations, confusion, and a completely altered state of mind. Although it is a rare side effect it does happen and I never knew about it because it was given to me as a solution for knee pain and it is supposed to be no big deal"

"I am 58 years old and am an avid adult athlete. I have been playing ice hockey for many years. I developed a groin strain with pain into the lower abdomen. This pain made walking very difficult at times. I did not have a hernia just a lot of pain. I tried traditional remedies but the pain would not relent. I was taking too much aspirin as it caused a significant reduction in my GFR. (Glomerular filtration rate) ie kidney function. Stopped the aspirin. It was reducing the pain but not significantly. I tried 15 mg of meloxicam. The effects were noticeable within 3 hours. The pain was reduced by 90 % within 2 days. I took the dosage down to avoid kidney and or GI problems. I will resume my activities with caution but the relief provided by this medicine is thus far nothing short of astounding."

"Was prescribed this medication 15 MG today for pain in upper back right side. Thinking that it maybe muscular, I was given this for inflammation. Within a half of taking this med, I was very dizzy and stumbling around. Right now, 5 hrs later, I am still dizzy, nauseous and still in pain. Don't think I will be taking a second dose."

"Was put on this med for inflammation in my leg and arm, took one 15mg pill on a Friday night , got up on Saturday and had no pain whatsoever, I had been suffering with excruciating pain for about 4 to 5 months, I took another pill on Saturday mid morning around 5pm I started feeling nauseated and my mouth started filling with saliva, each time I swallowed or spit it would fill up rapidly again and again, then I start getting bad stomach cramps, this all lasted about 5 to 6 minute, debating if I want to take another one tomorrow or not, I long to wake up pain free but so scared of the side effects of this med"

"I was prescribed Meloxicam 15mg by my GP as I had a bad case of Plantar Facitiices. It happened while I was in holiday about two weeks ago and for the last four days of my trip I hobbled around in so much pain it was unbearable. Apparently symptoms last 3-12 months. Once prescribed I started taking it that night. It’s been one week now and I have absolutely no pain at all!! The cons are the side effects! For the past three nights I have had heart palpitations so bad that I cannot even sleep. Not every minute or so it’s every third or fourth heartbeat, this is frustrating for me as the no pain factor is 10/10 but the side effects are poor. I will make an appointment to see my GP today and see if he suggests coming off it altogether or reducing my dose. Everyone is different so you cannot rule it out unless you try if for yourself. If my palpitations were not as frequent and I could sleep at night I would be staying on Meloxicam for the whole course of the prescription."

"Congenital spinal stenosis and degenerative lumbar discs at 24 years old. I am overweight and have lost 20 lbs since a laminectomy in fall 2016. Was doing better but one year later things got bad again. Surgeon put me on Tramadol and Mobic 15 mgs and the Mobic seems to be my wonder drug. Hopefully after another 8 weeks of PT we can go off and try healing once more."

"After 4 months of worsening chronic shoulder pain I began taking Meloxicam 7.5 mg, I suspect a rotator cuff issue but they said arthritis. It works well on the chronic pain for about 6 hours but doesn't prevent sharp pain from sudden movement. After 3 days I started having weird dreams and chest pain. I'm going back to alternating aspirin and Tylenol, and I'm going to find a different "specialist" who respects my history of coronary bypass and diabetes."

"Was put on Meloxicam on Friday (1/12/18) after receiving a diagnosis of Lipedema. Due to having Bipolar and Anxiety and I am VERY careful about going on new meds that could potentially affect my mental health negatively. I ask my doctor, pharmacist and check Drugs.com and my app for any possibility of it causing problems. Well both my doctor and my pharmacist said, “no problem”. my app said, “no problem”. But I did NOT read everything Drugs.com had to say and now here I am 3 doses later, 2 horribly traumatic nightmares stuck in my head, I’ve been feeling a bit depressed (on and off) the last day or 2 and a severe headache!! Guess who is NOT taking tonight’s dose or any others, ever again?!"

"I am 45 years old and suffer from degenerative arthritis in my knees due to severe injuries. The pain was becoming so unbearable...to the point of questioning how I can go on for another 30-40 years. Ibuprofen and Celebrex provided no relief and shots were just as worthless. I just started Mobic a 2 weeks ago and I have my life back! The pain is absolutely gone! I honestly can't believe it! I will admit the side effects scare me, but I'm hoping my excellent health prior to using Mobic will be stave off the risk of these side affects."

"I had low intense back pain for 2 yrs. This drug works great & I tolerated it well. I did a 7 day regimen as prescribed. Now I am pain free & will use if I have a flare up. It worked for me & did so after 2hrs of taking it."

"I have had constant pain in my hands neck and shoulder from my lupus. It has caused me not to be able to do simple thinks such as house work, care for my toddler and get out and go places. I noticed a reduction in pain within 6 hours. I have not had any side effects, although I know others commonly do. I was told not to drink on this because it can cause severe stomach discomfort and I'm following the docs orders on that one. I know everyone is different, but for me this is a miracle!"

"I'm taking Meloxicam 15mg. The shape of the pill is round & concave. The concave surface suctions/sticks in my throat & won't go down. Does anyone else have this problem?"

"Just had it prescribed for my arms which are still painful from time to time 6 months after breaking both. Woke up with dreadful back pain today and thought it would be a good time to try one. It did nothing for my back pain but took the edge off the pains in my arms. My doctor said I can not take any other pain relief medication with this one, so I have to wait in pain for quite awhile until it is out of my system so I can take something a bit better. Not happy."
