Mobic

Have any of you had any experience with Mobic? Dr. put me on Medrol dosepak and Mobic last week, Medrol is finished and the pain came back like gangbusters and this Mobic doesn't seem to be doing anything. Does it take time to build up in your system? I think I like my Advil better.

Re: Mobic

It does take time to build up in your system. They switched me to it when Vioxx was taken off the market. It never really did much so I went back to Aleve due to the cost and got just as much relief. I can't take celebrex as I'm allergic to sulfa drugs so there really wasn't an alternative at the time.

Re: Mobic

Hi, i've tried it before for a short time. It never helped me and in fact i still went downhill while taking it. Then my eyes got sooo swollen I had to stop taking it. I took it for about a week or so.

Re: Mobic

I've taken it for about a month and I went back to Celebrex. For me Celebrex worked much better but Alieve and Advil both are also good arthritis medicines.

Re: Mobic

Thanks for this information about resveratol. I'm always in search of alternatives to conventional meds. I've tried most of them (Arava, Embrel, MTX, Mobic, Celebrex, etc...) with little to no relief, so I'll gladly give resvertol a try along with some red wine. THANKS!!!!

Re: Mobic

hello, having recently been diagnosed with RA i find myself in world of unknown drugs with lots of unpleasant side effects and not really knowing what way to go!In england you are usually started off with MTX/ plaquinil/ steorids ect then if all fail you are able to try the new biological drugs anti TNF's. I would prefer to try alternatives to these drugs but have been told that i run the risk of damage to joints and that they do not slow down the disease progress itself. For someone who is new to all this what perspective do you take if you were diagnosed now after trying various drugs over the years?Many thanks.
wenXXX.

Re: Mobic

The resveratrol sounds very interesting. Has anyone had any positive experiences with a high quality fish oil?

Re: Mobic

Over the years I've gone on and off conventional meds, but I come back because I'm afraid that if I don't I will cause serious damage to my joints. I was diagnosed with RA in 1997 and in 1999 I begin on MTX (over the years I go off the meds and get back on them). In 2003 or 2004 I was placed on Embrel, but later changed to Arava. I am currently taking MTX, Arava, and Mobic. However, I am not opposed to also trying resveratol.
