Severe arthritic back pain. Would there be any reaction between meloxicam and Losartan, Doxadosin?

I would like to know if there are any bad reactions in taking meloxicam with blood pressure tablets (Losartan and Doxadosin) and also coamilfruse and 25mg thyroid tablets. I also take HRT and have done for years, even though now nearly 80. Would there be any bad reaction between the meloxicam and these drugs. I am about to try them for a month for very bad arthritic back pain, but want to know more.

Welcome at healthcaremagic.
The meloxicam is one of the NSAID OR NON STEROIDAL ANTI INFLAMMATORY DRUG.This medicine have interaction with LOSARTAN(Which is one of the ACE inhibitor).This may inhibit the anti hypertensive effect of your medicine.There can be deterioration in renal function if this is taken with frusemide(a diuretic),this looks to be part of your other medicine(coamifruse).
This combination is not suitable for person in old age.I will advice you to consult to your doctor & ask for change of your analgesic medicine.You should insist more on physiothearpy like back strengthening exercises,infra red therapy ,etc.,This will help in reliving your pain .

greetings friend, there are no drug interactions that would prohibit use of these drugs in you. I would watch with taking any anti-inflammatory pain medication like meloxicam to make sure that is not increasing her blood pressure and it does not predispose you to stomach pain which might indicate an ulcer. Fortunately, these drugs are often taken together and did not interact with each other so you do not have to worry about that. Have a great day.
