I have a bad back with 6 degenerative discs as well as bad arthritis in my hands. I was a catcher for 30 years. I take one 15mg Meloxicam when my symptoms act up. I'm not a daily pill taker. When it's really bad I'll take it 3 or 4 days in a row until the pain is gone. I'm very happy with the quick pain relief and increased flexibility.

When I started having the hip pain and found out that I have ostoarithitis , it eased the pain, i was able to walk and bend a little better. I only take it when I need it, it has been working thus far.

It works but is not as effective as other less harsh over the counter medicatiosn such as Aleve (naproxen sodium) or ibuprofen. Does it work? Yes. But, it just doesn't work very well and is not a substitute for more effective pain management. Oh, I have herniated disks (L3 through S1) and degenerative disk disease since age 26.

I am 63. I have had joint pain in my left knee, both ankles, both shoulders and wrists. Also my left thumb which was injured 3 years ago. It was painful and difficult to stand and walk after sitting or lying down for more than 1/2 hour. Stairs were a killer. Meloxicam gave immediate relief to all symptoms.

Comment:
Been on it for 9 days. I have arthritis in lumbar due to failed surgeries. It has really helped my chronic pain. I take other meds for pain and sleep. Its been 20 years and this is the best relief I have gotten with a medication. I do eat something with it. I hope I feel the same about it 6 months from now?
