Reviews for Meloxicam to treat Inflammatory Conditions

Sort by:

"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."

"Mobic didn't do anything for my pain from meniscus tears in both knees but it did take my melon size swollen knees down to almost normal. Once I recover from surgery enough to not need to manage swelling, I will be happy to go back to pain killers till."

"Took this for 5 days for inflammation following knee surgery. Did nothing for pain and I had some stomach issues. The morning after my 5th dose, I woke up and the room was spinning. Vertigo was so bad I could barely walk. Going back to ibuprofen. I'll never take this again."

"I am a 31 year old female with Rheumatic Valvular disease. I recently had my joints become achy and inflamed to the point where I'd spend most days in pain and was unable to go back to work for the last few months. Was only suggested Krill oil(which I still have not tried yet) and panadol initially. My GP then suggested mobic. I am on the generic version Moxicam and it took about a week to come right but most of my aches in my joints are gone. Still a little rusty now and then but over all really happy with the outcome. I take one 15mg tablet every night after dinner and have been on it for almost a month. Side effects not applicable as my weight fluctuates and I get cramps and headaches regardless of meds."

"I've done two seven day courses of this medicine in 2016 for neck pain and stiffness, once in winter and once in autumn. Works great for the pain, although the complete symptoms would diminish only after I was into its third or fourth day. It did have some side-effects though: hot flushes, weakness, shaky feeling, minor anxiety, heart palpitations and stomach cramps. Although, I must add a note here though that all this could be more down to myself than the medicine"

"I was prescribed meloxicam for sacroiliitis. It's helped make the pain a lot more tolerable. I'm still limited with what I can do, but it brought my resting pain level from an 8 to a 2-3."

"Took it for a week for my chronic tendinitis injuries, joint stiffness, joint pain and muscle spasms. I went from a 26 inch waist to a 29 inch waist and a 29 inch band (under the boobs) to a 33 inch band in under a couple of days. All with no change in diet or exercise. Worked wonders for my pain and fatigue, but I don't recommend to any athletes."

"Had found out I had some cervical stenosis a couple spots was close to spinal cord. Dr prescribed meloxacam for inflammation. It worked awesome. I could move my neck better than I had before. But 12 pills in I started to get hives on my face, and some facial swelling, heart racing. Had to go to ER Its sad that I have so many med allergies. I wish I could have taken this. It worked for me for inflammation."

"I have been taking Mobic for approx 4 years now but (only on ocassions) to relieve arthritic symptoms from once a week to three times a week when chronic over this time span. Recently I have had a severe bout of Sciatica through both of my legs that started last December 2016 and I mean severe, I tried all sorts of pain relief e.g. panadeine 15 x 2 to help with little relief. Recently I had to administer a mobic to help with my arthritis and found it helped about 80% with my sciatica. I couldn't believe that this was the case so I asked my G.P. who said this may be the case as it acts as an anti inflammatory. I hope my findings helps others that why I wrote this blog. Take care. Chrismin. T."

"I have had a couple surgeries and have had arthritis and been on large doses of pain medication for the past 10 years my doctor prescribed meloxacam for me 7 days ago and I am almost pain free. I take it once a day. I am really tired but think that is from being so inactive for the past year and in bed all day. I would recommend you try this before giving up. Thank you doctor."
