I am taking meloxicam and I would like to redi=uce

I am taking meloxicam and I would like to redi=uce the dosage as I m having stomach upset> I have taken naproxen and it seemed to work for my lower back pain, L4-L5. My impression is that naproxen is a less strong drug than meloxicam.

I don't think that this something I want to do. I will make and appt with my physician. thank you.

I am currently taking Meloxicam and my doctor is wanting to take me off of it, I have stopped using it, however the pain is excruciating and I would like to know if there is something comparable to it, without all the side effects that i could possibly take over the counter?

A little over a month ago I had gastric sleeve bypass done and they told me I would not be able to take meloxicam at all for life. I was taking it for bad knees, stopped three weeks prior to surgery but now they re hurting again like before. So today I started taking my 7.5mg pill and plan to from now on. Question is, what harm am I doing to my body, I don t need possible side effects are there any actual side effects.

I was recently put on Meloxicam about a month or 2 ago and i started bruising like an overripe peach. I read the list of side effects today and easily bruising was the first one listed. I was worried it was more serious like organ failure, i m going to call my doctor tomorrow and i will never take another meloxicam again. i never bruised like this before i was put on this drug. do you think that s what s causing the bruising?
