yeah  razzle,
oh my gosh! i have chiari malformation too!!!!!
not that i am celebrating but it's rare to talk to anyone with them!!! have you ever been on neurontin or lamictal for the nerve pain? topomax?
i was on mobic for treatment of RA but it did nothing for me...but then again the nsaids never really worked for me...just steroids. but many folks have great success with mobic. just watch your stomach! and take care to notice any bloody BMs too. these drugs may cause some GI upset in people who are sensitive. much much luck to you!
good to hear from you!

Hi Razzle,

  I was put on Mobic when all the concerns about Bextra and Celebrex came out since I have a cardiac history in addition to RA and OA. They started with 7.5 mg then quickly increased it to 15. It helps but not nearly as well as the Bextra did although my rheummy seems to feel it is considerably safer. It seems to be fairly easy on the tummy, although as with all these meds., the less you can take the better off you are. GI bleeds are always a risk. Hope this helps some and feel better soon!

I tried mobic back in January when I was having trouble with infections and had to go off the enbrel for a while. I found it worked really well in conjunction with the plaquinel I was on. I now only take it when the inflammation gets really bad because the plaquinel is an anti inflammatory to.

Hi CaMamma..Mobic is an NSAID, been around a while. Mostly used for RA, (per my rheummy) until the newer ones came out. My Dr.s now got lots of his pts. back on it.
It has the same risks as the other NSAIDs but according to him the incidence of GI bleeds and cardiac incidents are less with the Mobic...hope hes right!

cool  goodafternoon CaMama cool
how are you today? wishing you a good weekend.  hey, good question!  let's have a med education post here! yeah here we go!
1. BamBam's correct; mobic's an NSAID. it is also called a NONOPIOID ANALGESIC and the other name for mobic is meloxicam. smurf
2. typically Tx OA and also for fever too! decreases inflammation. mobic inhibits PROSTOGLANDINS devil (stuff causing us pain!).
3. Mobic's metabolized by the liver!
4. avoid using aspirin with use of mobic (increase risk of GI bleed).
5. prolonged use of mobic can cause your blood tests to show elevated liver enzymes....so if you want a true liver enzyme test, the doc may pull you of mobic for a while AND it is a good idea to keep regular bloodwork TO MONITOR YOUR LIVER FUNCTION! just to keep sure everything is working properly! :-)
6. anyone on LITHIUM should keep their bloodwork appts too....extra caution is needed.
7. if you take coumadin or heparin....your bloodwork PT and PTT times might be extra  prolonged because mobic acts like a bloodthinner too, sorta like aspirin! :-)
8. call or tell your doc if : you get a rash, itching, visual disturbances, weight gain or edema (swelling), BLACK STOOLS! nono jaundice, or bad right upper quandrant abdominal pain.
                             i hope this was helpful for anyone unfamiliar to mobic. this info also applies to mostly all NSAIDS. these meds generally work all in the same way. and remember...if you do not get the results YOU WANT...there are DOZENS of other nsaids that may work better for YOU! tongue   all of the material listed above if legit! and approved by the FDA and also resourced from my PDR. :-)   was also a very good review for myself as well!
the best to everyone!
