MELOXICAM - ORAL

USER REVIEWS

Comment from: geno 55-64 Male 1 to 6 months Patient Published: April 26

It takes about 2-3 hours to really take effect, but then it is very effective compared to aleve or ibuprofen. Since I have been taking it, my joint pain has subsided to the point that I need only meloxicam 2-3 times a week.

Comment from: Deb 55-64 Female less than 1 month Patient Published: July 21

This is the first time in over 10 years that I have been pain free and have increased movement. I have used Alleve (600mg/day)and former use of Hydrocodone and oxycotin, but have never been pain free - only drugged. The only side effect is the nausea after taking Vivlodex so I take it with food, a full glass of water and then eat a hard candy or peppermint to alleviate the stomach upset. I feel like a 28 year old and am actually 56!
