I sam my rheumy and he gave me a bunch of samples of brand name Movic, generic for meloxicam. It is a NSAID. It is used for patients with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis. He gave it to me to try for the pain in my legs and hips due to the Lupus. Coupled with my pain killers it seems to be working, and with no ill effects. Something to think about the next time you go see the doc and are having pain that can't be controlled to your satisfaction. It does interact with a number of other med's so you would want to maybe investigate this drug and their side effects and contraindications. You can go to RXLIST.com to find out about your drugs and if Mobic would work for you. Maybe its worth a try. Its working on me and for that I am thankful. Finally something to help with the pain, that is enabeling me to walk and live some. Want to talk give me a jingle.
Always,
Angela
