Doc just put me on 7.5? Daily. He said it was a safer nsaid as far as tummy side effects. However, I started taking it yesterday, and I'm crampy and gas-y.

The condition of my gi tract really concerns me, since I already have so much damage from celiac (doc said six years to normal if I don't re-glutenize myself).

Should I continue taking it to see if this side effect goes away? Or should I try something else? What are your experiences?

I do not wanna get into narcotics if I can avoid it.

I take 15mg of mobic myself. I am gassy, but I take anti-gas meds to help it out.

Double check to make sure there's no gluten in the mobic since you have celiac.

When I took Mobic, I was on 15 mg and it helped SO much. If the cramps are unbearable then of course do not take it anymore but if it is light cramping pain I would deffinatly give it a few more days and see if your body becomes used to it.

I was on 3 others before this and has no response to them and this took about 80% of my pain away when I took it every day like I was supposed to,.

Did it take a while to work? Does it need to accumulate to be effective? I'm willing to keep taking it to see if the gi symptoms subside...

I think it worked pretty quickly for me personally. I know some people can take a few weeks to work but for me it was fast :D!

It took about two days for it to get rid of my headaches, but about a week to stop the pains in my hands and toes.
