Question Mobic Drug Use

I went to PM doctor yesterday and he prescribed Mobic for the arthritis in my back. Has anyone here had any experience with this drug?

Re: Mobic Drug Use

Hi Darby-
I use Meloxicam the generic of Mobic. I started using it about a year ago and have had very good luck with it. I was experiencing back pain while sleeping and this has really taken the edge off. I have had no side affects. I hope you have as much good luck with it as I have.

Re: Mobic Drug Use

Thanks for your reply Martha. I am also using Meloxicam and have experienced mild side effects (nausea, heartburn) but I am hoping my system will get use to the drug and the side effects will disapear. I read that it take about 2 weeks for it to start working where you might realize the effects. I hope it works for me as well as it has worked for you.

I have had it and it worked well for me-except that my feet and legs got really swollen. Turns out I am allergic to NSAIDS or I would still be taking it. Mobic is great for inflammation.
