  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for pain)
  • Side effects
    Mild (stomach irritation if not enough food in stomach)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 15 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I had to change the time of day I take this med b/c it was not covering my pain through the night. I would awaken at 3 & be in agony until I could take my morning meds. I then took my morning dose of Meloxicam at noon on the first day, and on the second day waited until bed time to take it. Then I began taking it at night only. That way it covered my pain through most of the night. I try to take it with a piece of cheese or toast to protect my stomach.
Cost: < $25 monthly
