Meloxicam (Mobic)

Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug that helps control pain associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Meloxicam may also be used to control other types of pain. Meloxicam is an analgesic drug that also helps reduce fevers. Meloxicam is the generic drug name, which is sold in the United States under the brand name Mobic and in Europe under the brand name Movalis. Meloxicam helps reduce inflammation associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, which in turn controls pain, reduces stiffness and swelling, and improves flexibility and range of motion in the joints associated with these conditions. Meloxicam inhibits production of a chemical in the body that triggers inflammation, pain, and fever. Meloxicam cannot cure osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, only manage symptoms.
