Re: How long does it take for Mobic to take effect?

Hi! For me, Mobic has been a wonder drug! I started with 7.5mg but didn't
notice a thing. My doctor then increased it to 15mg once daily and like others on this board, I felt the difference within hours. I have osteoarthritis in both feet/ankles and while the Mobic doesn't keep me 100% pain free, it
has reduced the pain to a level that for me, is acceptable and manageble and
sometimes even ignorable and allows me to keep working my job which requires me to be on my feet 12 to 14 hours a day. I am concerned about having to take it every day b/c I have high BP, and plan on trying to take it every other day to see if it continues to be effective.

Re: How long does it take for Mobic to take effect?

I also have been taking Mobic, I have severe RA and it has helped a little but not the amount of relief that most of you have experienced. I was wondering
if maybe OA responds better to this Medication than RA does. I have also noticed a flare-up of my reflux. I have had to double my Nexeum to protect
my heartburn. Between the increase of Methotrexate and my Humeria it gets
alittle upsetting. I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

I decided to stop taking Mobic b/c it's not helping any better than Advil. Also, it's so expensive I can't really afford it anymore. Bextra helped me so much. I can't believe it was pulled off the market.
