The information at Drugs.com is not a substitute for medical advice. Always consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Dosage

Use the lowest effective dosage for the shortest duration consistent with individual patient treatment goals [see Warnings and Precautions (5)].

For management of osteoarthritis pain, the recommended starting dosage is 5 mg orally once daily. Dose may be increased to 10 mg in patients who require additional analgesia. The maximum recommended daily oral dose of VIVLODEX is 10 mg.

In patients on hemodialysis, the maximum daily dosage is 5 mg [see Warnings and Precautions (5.6), Use in Specific Populations (8.7), Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)]

Non-Interchangeability with Other Formulations of Meloxicam

VIVLODEX capsules have not shown equivalent systemic exposure to other formulations of oral meloxicam. Therefore, VIVLODEX capsules are not interchangeable with other formulations of oral meloxicam even if the total milligram strength is the same. Do not substitute similar dose strengths of other meloxicam products [see Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
