 2  radiating leg pain/?lumbar disc Terrible"melt downs" for no reason Did not hold off pain more than 12-14 hours. Cut in half-took 2x daily-still waking in middle of night in severe pain-thenit takes longer to take effect in a.m. F 67 5 days

 2  Pain/inflammation. TINNITUS!!!! Terrible. Off of it for about a month, I think. Stopped taking it 3 days after the ringing started. Ringing is still here. Today it's the worst it's been. It worked wonders on what it was supposed to, but the ringing is about to drive me insane. No kidding =( M 43 7 weeks

 1  Fibromyalgia, EDS Type 3 I have been on this medication twice now. First time was two years ago and i stopped it after almost a year of taking it because I felt like I had lost control of myself. Last week (after a year of being off, switching to a new doctor, and pretty much forgetting everything that happened the last time) I was put back on it. Within 2 days I was having terrible moods swings again, hot flashes, and I've been on the verge of panic attacks 3 times. I'm constantly irritated now and I have treated my family like dogs since the mood swings started. I'm irritable and jumpy and panicked. I have become severely depressed and have been suicidal for the last 5 days for no reason. I have the worst mood swings ever now. I will never take this again. I'm so miserable. I feel like an animal... F 19 7 days
 2  rheumatoid arthritis Made me depressed. Had a lot of crying spells which is not like me at all. Helped with the pain though but couldn't continue because of mood change. F 47 3 weeks

 1  Knee pain Prescribed to take as needed for pain. First 2 times kept waking up from sleep, wide wake at 3am. Feelings of slight panic and urgency. Thought maybe stress related. Took again last night, complete panic, crying spells, hallucinating . Will never take again , I'll stick with ibuphrophen thanks! F 39 3 days

 1  Bursitis in my shoulder This medicine did help with my shoulder pain, but on the second day taking it I started to experience occasional flashes of belly pain. On day three I discontinued use but still spent the day nauseous and with intestional cramping. On day four I started experiencing severe depression and suicidal thoughts for no apparent reason. Hopefully since I took it for such a short time I will be feeling like myself again soon. I will never take this again, and I will do more research before I try ANY new medication my doctor prescribes. I don't understand why mood changes weren't mentioned as a side effect on the papers that came with my prescription. If I hadn't thought to look online I still wouldn't understand the drastic mood change I experienced. F 56 2 days
15 mg 1X D

 5  Symptoms associated with hashimotos Slight stuffy/runny nose. This drug changed my life! I've been suffering with inflammation pain in my entire body, including IBS, fibromyalgia, arthritis, and lower back pain for nearly 10 years. I thought chronic pain was going to be my lot for the rest of my life. The first day into taking Mobic, I felt so much relief, I could get up and do things I used to do: walk my dog, cook without needing to sit on a bar stool, and rake leaves! I thought I was doomed to feeling 80, but I feel about 40 again--and I'm 62. And it's on the $4 list as well. Win/win! Mobic gave me back my life after four years of feeling like a semi-invalid. F 62 2 weeks

 4  pain post spinal fusion Really helped with the pain, unfortunately I started having palpitations constantly, which still have not gone away 1 week after stopping it. Seeing my GP next week about it. It's frustrating, because it's the best non narcotic med I've tried, and I had to stop it. Back to Ibuprofen, which doesn't work nearly as well. F 60 10 days
 1  Chronic bursitis A few hours after I took the medication my heart started racing and I felt extremely light headed and dizzy. The next day i had this strange uncomfortable ache in my neck and left chest, feeling of a swollen throat and dizziness. The ache is still bothering me and bothers me the most when I breathe in deeply. I'm not allergic to any medication and have only ever not been able to tolerate one other drug. I'm not taking another dose unless my dr says this is normal and will subside. F 24 1 days
 1  C3-c4 herniation, OA, fibromyalgia Terrible NSAID! I took it 6 yrs ago and my ikids always called it my mean pill. I don't recall how long I took it, but a different dr prescribed it to me two weeks ago. Mobic turns me into a crying, angry, irritable, feeling crazy person. I normally am a fun, outgoing person. I have had muscle spasms and charley horses in my feet and legs, ringing in my ears, dry mouth, headaches, and wake up at 3 am after having awful nightmares. Do not take this if you can avoid it. I don't understand how an NSAID can cause mental changes but it did for me. : ( F 46 2 weeks

 5  Osteoarthritis If I take Mobic every day, I end up with Hyponatremia . Mobic has been great for me, I take it twice a week, and I have little or no pain. F 60 5 years

 5  for knee pain No side effects. I usually only take this twice a week, but if I'm walking a lot I take it daily. Meloxicam (mobic) enabled me to be able to take a 2 week trip to Italy with no knee pain. I also noticed that my back didn't hurt either. I have a lot of arthritis and I don't think I could've done this active trip to Italy without meloxicam. At home when I walk half an hour a day I only take meloxicam twice a week because the literature says it can increase a person's risk for heart attack or stroke. F 54 6 months

 1  shoulder sprain x5 weeks Severe nausea, woke me from deep sleep about 3 hours after taking first pill. This was combined with excruciating back/torso pain (felt like both kidneys were on fire). Threw up once; felt better, and back pain was gone in the morning, but didn't really get over the nausea for about 48 hours. I was really excited about taking this because my shoulder was really painful, and I didn't want to take anything that would make me sleepy/loopy. I can't be 100% sure that Mobic caused the side effects, but I ate nothing weird, had no fever or any other symptoms but the above. I'm afraid to take Mobic again to experiment. :) F 44 1 days

 2  Inflammation have not noticed any side effects I had been taking Ibuprofen with success but my doctor thought it was too harsh on my stomach and gave me Mobic instead. Took several days to notice a difference in pain however break through pain occurs every single day and I end up taking 1000 mg of Tylenol twice a day to combat that. I had much more pain relief with taking 600 mg Ibuprofen twice a day. F 45 12 weeks
15 mg 1X D

 2  Fibromyalgia Anxiety, nervousness, feeling that I was in an emotional crisis with no rational explanation. Unable to work or focus on simple tasks. F 48 7 days

 1  Tendonitis Major depression with crying spells and a feeling of hopelessness and wanting to stay home. F 39 6 days

 1  Osteoarthritis cervical and lumbar Caused crankiness, anger over trifles and depression. Made me feel like life is crap. Took the joy out of everything! I'm normally a cheerful person, not moody at all. I took this at 7.5 mg to get any pain relief from pinched nerves in neck and lumbar regions. (C3-C5 and L4-S1) When I take half a dose I get no relief from pain; only the full 7.5 mg seems to mitigate nerve damage and make muscle spasms cease. HOWEVER: This drug causes me to become depressed, anxious, and zoned-out. I feel like I'm cut off and in my own crabby little cell. It took me a while to realize Mobic did this to me. It's not worth it. Also get the same evil side effects from: Ibuprofen and Diclofenac, Someone should explain why this happens. How can an nsaid affect one's moods? My doctor is incredulous but these side effects are real. F 59 5 days

 1  Severe headache and neck stiffness This medicine was given to me while in a hospital for unrelated treatment. The nurse gave me Mobic and right after a shot of heparin, about 5 minutes later my heart was pounding, severe chest pain and uncontrolled shaking. My husband run for the nurse and next thing I remember was waking up with at least 10 people around me, pads on my chest. I was going into respiratory and cardiac arrest! Thankfully my husband said I vomited a nasty black and orange stuff. That saved my life! Mobic and heparin are a letal combination. It looks like I'm also allergic to Mobic. Whatever it is I will never try Mobic again! F 42 1 days

 3  shoulder sprain Extreme fatigue, mood swings/easily irritable," zoning" out, dozing off Just started taking this and it seems to help with the pain, but sometimes it doesn't seem strong enough. For me I felt the side effects soon after taking the drug and still have the same effects on day 2. I'm debating whether the side effects are worth tolerating as the family is certainly getting the brunt of me getting easily angered. Based on the control study group for this drug there were 5% that had some sort of mood swing; based on this blog, seems like the percentage is really higher.... F 45 2 days

 5  knee pain minor stomach twinges at times but very negligent Has helped a lot w/knee pain (cartilage degen. and arthritis)......in fact has made me much more mobile. Very happy with results of this drug. F 59 1 months

 5  Osteoarthritis in my neck. This medication has given me my life back. before taking this medication, I was experiencing severe neck pain and headaches, to the point of considering narcotics and antidepressants. My Dr suggested I give this a try, once a day in the a.m., and I had instant relief in one day. I have accidentally missed a dose a few times, and I could definitely tell the difference. I don't seem to have any noted side effects, other than a slight runny nose, but that might be caused by our smoke filled city (fires). I am not tired, or nauseated or constipated or anything, which is great! I can't wait to see how it is going to effect me this winter., as I have been dreading the cold weather. F 49 30 days
15 mg 1X D
 1  back pain severe stomach pain even when taken with food, indigestion i suggest never to take this if you've had any history with acid reflux or any other stomach issues especially if you take a SSRI/SRI... my doctor was insistent on me taking this for back pain... and it sent me on my merry way to the ER ( I was on Viibryd too, had reactions to that as well) F 30 1 days

 1  Arthritic knee I noticed very little improvement in my knee. I became severely constipated, and my entire abdominal region became so distended I felt, and looked, like I was going to explode. My stomach could not expand enough to relieve the 'pressure'. This was both Extremely uncomfortable, and quite Ugly in appearance. My weight didn't change but my SIZE sure did. Imagine an otherwise 'in shape' 52 year old Man nine (9) months pregnant !!! I am now on day two (2) without it and I am already beginning to see some signs of relief of these very unpleasant side effects. Will not ever allow this drug to pass my lips again. M 52 2 weeks
 4  psoriatic arthritis stomach issues; gastritis, pre-ulcers; stomach pain, gnawing feeling; heartburn I have been on and off this drug since I was 21. It has always provided me with great and almost immediate relief. That being said, when taken for a long, sustained period of time it has always caused me GI problems. Nothing ever serious enough to make me stop taking it; but just something to be aware of. Never EVER take this drug on an empty stomach and if possible take it at least 30 min. before lying down. But if you are careful, it provides great relief :) F 29 3 years

 1  Osteoarthritis Sudden mood change After 2 days of taking Mobic I noticed mood swings. I started to feel depressed, anxious and was having dizzy spells, I couldn't be bothered to do my job properly and have now stopped taking it. M 44 4 days

 2  knee pain & swelling nosebleeds started after a couple of weeks, then after this month had a raging nosebleed out of both nostrils that took 15 minutes to stop. also noticicing heart palpitations. I am immediately stopping this drug no better pain relief than motrin/ibuprofen F 53 1 months
75 mg 1X D
 1  Orthopedic Surgery Uncontrolable sobbing first 24 hours. Out-of-character sadness until discontinued. I had 7 surgeries (one just 2 months before) without any crying or mood changes afterwards. The ONLY thing different was the Mobic. Stopped after 5 days and all mood changes vanished. Doctor says it could not have been this drug but mine is not the first post to describe mood change. I had sugery-induced menopause 7 years ago so it was not PMS. F 45 5 days
7.5 mg 2X D

 1  tendonitis Depression, extreme fatigue, weight gain. The last two weeks I have become very moody, depressed, and irritable. I am usually very laid back and cheerful. Also, I have been feeling exhausted and run down. I had no idea why and it was really bothering me. I also gained a few pounds even though I have been eating a very healthy diet. Just today I realized that the only that has changed is that I've been taking this drug for two weeks. By the way, it hasn't helped with my pain at all. That makes my decision easy. I'm done with Mobic. I can't wait to see if I'm back to normal soon. F 42 14 days
7.5 1X D
 1  tendonitis No benefits from this drug at all. Makes me extremely angry, and my pain is much worse than before. I will never take this drug again. Thanks to this drug, I had to sleep on the couch last night and now my neck is hurting too. M 36 7 days
7.5mg 1X D

 1  osteoarthritis Episodes of rage and extreme irritability. Decreased platelets and severe bruising. For me, Mobic did not seem to help my pain at all. Although I am normally a cheerful, happy person, I had increasing episodes of unexplainable anger and absolutely everything irrititated me. Even if this had helped my pain, I would not take it due to the extreme mood change it caused. I have been off of Mobic for three days and am seeing mood imrovement daily. F 58 7 days
15mg 1X D
 3  Severe TMJ, neck, shoulder and back Little stomach discomfort, dizziness about 3 hours after taking it, little trembling in hands, anxious, though I'm a very anxious person. Not sure if Mobic is working yet. My pain always comes and goes, i notice I'm swollen. I guess I have to wait to see any results. I've been dealing with tmj pain for a year now, also pain in neck, shoulders and back. F 34 3 days
7.5 1X D
 2  herniated disc in back Diarrhea, nausea, flu like symptoms. I have a cardiac arrythmia - PVC's controlled with a beta blocker but when taking the Mobic I experienced more PVC's. Gave me a shaky, uneasy feeling. I have persevered with Mobic cause my back pain is so terrible, but I cannot go on like this having diarrhea at night all night, I end up washed out in the morning and kind of "out of it" all the next day. Have to stop it now. I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow about having an injection for pain so hopefully that will work. F 72 10 days
7.5mg 1X D
 4  Shoulder Arthritis Fluid retention -- swelling in ankles/feet/lower legs and wrists/hands. This med helped my arthritis pain; however, I had to quit taking it due to fluid retention. I will see if my doctor can prescribe 7.5 mg per day instead of 15 mg to see if I still have fluid retention. F 52 3 months
15 mg 1X D

 3  Flare up of TMJ and Fibromyalgia Initially very sleepy, taking it at night now. First 3 days stomach ache which is now resolved. Feel like my heart is racing and flu-like symptoms. I also felt very swollen and gained a few pounds which I am hoping is just water retention. I will stick with it for another week when my doctor will re-evaluate it. The side effects are tolerable for now and I feel that it is worth taking for the results I am getting in such a short time. I should also mention that I do take Lortab as well for my pain which works well and is well tolerated by me. F 44 7 days
15 mg 1X D

 1  Arthritis Fainting, vertigo, muscle aches, increased heart rate, headaches, water retention which slowed blood flow to my brain. Water retention so bad it caused bulging disc in neck, now having headaches and leg cramps they hopefully physical therapy will resolve. I felt like I was having an emotional break down. Every test echo, xrays, u/s, ct's all coming back negative, but my body was shutting down. I know they thought I was psychotic. F 37 10 months
15mg 1X AN
 4  tendonitis, osteoarthritis I break the 7.5 mg pill in half and take half with breakfast, half with lunch. Never on an empty stomach. Still gives gnawy feeling in stomach. Have used in past with no ill effects, but am now noticing nausea, and inability to sleep at night if I take it any later than noon. It's the best of the NSAIDS for me, so far. Am experiencing the chills and feeling of broken glass under my skin now, wondering if this may be related to "flu-like symptoms" that even the mfk. acknowledges are possible. I consider it a short term drug for acute pain. HOpe I never have to take it long term. Spirulina has been more helpful to me. F 55 2 months
7.5 mg 1X D

 2  lower back pain None...till I ran out! Felt NO RELIEF of pain while taking it. However, once I ran out, the pain was far worse it ever was before I started taking it. The doctor said, "Yup! That's how Mobic works." I've been on it for over 3 years now and am afraid to run out again. M 46 3 years

 1  arthritis After about 2 weeks I started feeling tightness in my chest. My blood pressure had risen from 100/50 to 140/70. I stopped and in 3 weeks blood pressure slowly returned to normal. I do not take blood pressure medication. I worked well on the back and hip pain. I decided I will live with the pain rather than die from a heart attack from this medication. M 70 21 days
7.5 mg 1X D

 4  Mild Rhuematoid Arthritis No side effects so far. This medicine helped relieve some joint pain I'm having from mile R.A. It doesn't completely eliminate joint pain, but I've noticed a big difference. F 28 18 days

 1  Scar tissue build up in shoulder I am not on any other medication and told doc I did not want pain medicine. She insisted I have something so when the pain got bad enough I would have something to take the edge off. Assured me was not pain meds but acted as an anti-inflammatory. Did not take this for 2 days concurrent. First day I took it I went from sunny and cheerful, my normal disposition to angry for no reason. I was very alarming but I just shrugged it off. Second time I took it I experienced extreme anger and rage and every small thing got on my nerves. I have never taken again and have never experienced this again. I will take aleve from here on out. This drug can make a normal human being into a psychotic lunatic..ask me how I know...Would not want to be around anyone on this drug. Do not advise anyone to take this. F 38 2 days

 4  polyarthritis causes stomach pain. Can only tolerate about twice a week. Offers great relief for my joint pain, and works within an hour and usually lasts about 24 hours.

 1  severe shoulder pain/cant move arm Severe nausea; excessive salivation; dizziness; felt like I had the flu; unable to get off the couch; did not help with pain whatsoever taking meloxicam, on day 3.

 1  back pain I really dont remember if this drug helped with my back pain or not to be honest. It literally made me mentally unstable. It started with just sore muscles. I didnt notice my symptoms because i wasnt in my right mind. My wife and parents noticed my behavior and confronted me about it and eventually we realized it was the drug. I literally didnt care about anything. I became completely void of emotion. I started calling into work and would go and sit in my car and sit for hours. Then i started falling asleep randomly. I would wake up places and not remember how i got there. Really scarey. Doctors called is somulance or something like that. Made me act like a zombie and had sever mental effects on me. From what ive heard, what i experienced was rare. If you can take it without going crazy then i guess you'll be fine. M 27 30 days
15 mg 1X D

 4  osteoarthritis none must have something in my stomach to avoid acid reflux (I eat 2 or 3 plain crackers) but it has helped considerably with the pain in my knees, back, shoulder (DJD) and hips (both have been replaced), take the generic and am very happy. Had tried tramadol which did nothing. F 59 5 years

 3  arthritis in spine Heart palpitations,respiratory problems, bloating. It aggravates my asthma to the point I was getting more sick by the day. I had to go off of it. It was helping my pain, but the side effects were to frightening to continue. F 61 6 weeks
7.5 mg 1X D

 4  severe osteoarthritis - spine None I didn't realize this med worked until I started taking it every day. Really makes a difference in pain level. I even had a few (knock on wood) good days when before every day was a painful nightmare with lots of tears. Mobic gives me hope and that helps me get through the day. I take norco less often because I don't need it everyday now. F 33 3 months
