Hi there, I am newly diagnosed with (?mild) Lupus and have been commenced on prednisolone 15mg and plaquenil just over a week ago. Prior to that I was on Mobic 15mg a day which allowed me to function within limits. I have not taken Mobic since starting the other meds, and was wondering if it is safe enough to take Mobic still, as the prednisolone doesn't kill the pain as well as the Mobic does. I did ask the rheumatologist and he said to take it I if I need to (man of very few words), but I am still unsure about stuffing all these heavy duty meds into my body.
Is it Ok to need more than Prednisolone for the joint pain, and are these drugs compatible.. meaning mobic and pred?
Thank you

I don't know if you can take mobic with prednisolone, but I've always found that if I still have pain, my doctor increases my prednisone which give me immediate relief. I would call and talk to my rheumy about it. If it's hard to see or talk to him, talk to his nurse. I've found that nurses can be a great ally.

This is my favorite place for checking drug interactions - it says no interactions between Prednisolone
and Mobic, so you should be fine.
