hi
both readings are within normal range, mild systemic rise in first reading is not to worry about.monitor thrice daily.If you find reading above 150 for 3 consecutive days ask your doctor to change to other salt of medicine.Although Mobic (meloxicam) doesnt raise BP usually and is safe that way.Only should not be taken empty stomach and avoid acidity by taking omeprazole 10 mg in the morning on empty stomach as a precaution
best wishes
