May be used intermittently...

Detailed Answer:

Hi, thanks for your query...

Mobic has some similarities to ibuprofen which you have been instructed not to use.

They are in the same family of drugs but work slightly differently, because of this slight difference, you can use mobic intermittently.

If it does not work for you then your doctor may be able to prescribe a stronger med.

In addition to the painkiller, a warm compress to the affected area, 2 to 3 times a day.

A topical pain aid may also help, e.g. capsaicin.

I hope this helps.
