|5||Back Pain and Fibromyalgia||Some stomach cramping and diarrhea about the 3rd day taking med and then it goes away.||This med is a wonder drug for my back pain and pain associated with Fybromyalgia. You take this med once per day and it starts working on about day 4 or 5. Once it starts working take it for another week and then stop. Your pain will be gone. I only take it when needed. My stomach could not handle the high mg Ibruprofen and I hate muscle relaxants that make me feel "drugged". This med is great but it does take a few days to start working||F||50||10 years ||4/28/2008||1||joint pain||Please see the listings under feldene, the original name of this drug.

PIROXICAM (PIROXICAM): Piroxicam is used to reduce pain, swelling, and joint stiffness from arthritis. Reducing these symptoms helps you do more of your normal daily activities. This medication is known as a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking your body's production of certain natural substances that cause inflammation. If you are treating a chronic condition such as arthritis, ask your doctor about non-drug treatments and/or using other medications to treat your pain. See also Warning section.
