Anyone Use Meloxicam for arthritis? Great stuff so far.
« on: March 11, 2010, 03:56:43 AM »
Hi Everyone,
I have had severe, daily pain from arthritis that was detected during a cancer screening.  My shoulders, lower back are the main areas where the arthritis was found.

For the past 4 months, I t has been painfull to walk, and even go to the bathroom from my bed during the night.

Along comes meloxicam, and my pain has litterally gone away! In one night.

So I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this drug.  Thanks in advance for any input, which as always, is greatly appreciated.

I used it for a while when I had HSP. Wasn't potent enough, I had to resort to indomethicin.

But I'm pleased it works for you J. :)
