16 Aug 2012 The anti inflammatory properties of Meloxicam are great compared to the dosage one must take if it where any other Nsaid to produce comparable results.

29 Aug 2011 I was taking Ibuprophen and was told that it was not good for my weak stomach. I was prescribed meloxicam with omeprazole to help with my pain and swelling and not have it upset my stomach. It has worked.

21 Jul 2011 I love meloxicam. I have a repeating ninty day Rx (1 15mg pill daily) but only take 3/4 X per week. I get daily exercise (swimming, walking, stretches) and tend to get stiff and sore cycliclly. A meloxicam will knock this out and works for 24+ hours. I've been taking meloxicam for 3/4 years now. My only worry is developing side effects &/or loss of effectiveness. My percautionary measure is to take less than perscribed.

20 Jul 2011 I wish I had been made aware that continued/prolonged use of Meloxicam could or would cause a rise in blood pressure. That information was not available in information sheets accompanying the med. Already have had borderline hypertention readings in the past and now bp readings are HIGH. I have been prescribed Meloxicam and have taken Meloxicam for almost a year now and the doctor asked me if I knew what was causing my blood pressure to be high. Really.
