i’ve just started on meloxicam and don’t feel like it’s “strong” enough if that makes sense, like i still find myself wanting to use topical voltaren midway through the day. what have been your experiences with it?

      You can ask to go up in your dose. That's what I would do. I'm on the low dose but when it doesn't start to work I would go up

      I take it in the morning and by itself it's doesn't really work and taking cinnamon and turmeric in the morning and at night will help as well from experience

      Hey! I take meloxicam 7.5mg, 2x/day. I decided to take it twice a day to get a longer time of relief from it. I honestly haven’t taken the 15mg tabs so I don’t have anything to compare it to. I also remember it took a little while to really start working for me… like maybe a week or two? It definitely ended up working better for me than Aleve or any other NSAID.

      i actually take gabapentin too! i’m glad to hear it’s helping you, hopefully i’m still just in a transition period then with the meloxicam

      Hi Teeny. I'm taking Meloxicam 15mg once a day. But I am also taking Gabapentin 600mg. I can tell they are helping my chronic pain somehow. Hope this can be helpful to you.
