Meloxicam 7.5mg and Meloxicam 15mg tablets help combat inflammation, swelling, a stiffness of the joints, and pain. Meloxicam is quite effective for the alleviation and reduction of the symptoms of osteoarthritis. However, there is the possibility of side effects that can occur with the use of Meloxicam which can result in swelling of the feet, hands, ankles, throat, tongue, and many other parts of the body.

Meloxicam is generally taken in tablet form. Meloxicam 7.5 mg is typically the common dosage, but Meloxicam 15 mg tablets are also readily available. Meloxicam tablets are yellow in color, round or oval in design, and are uncoated. You must orally consume Meloxicam, and the tablets can be crushed or cut. You should take the recommended dosage with a full glass of water while in a sitting, or upright position. It is best that you first take a sip of water before consumption, as it will help you to better swallow the tablets. If you can arrange it, the ideal time to take Meloxicam is at night at least ten minutes before you go to sleep. If your stomach becomes upset during use, try taking it with food and water, or milk. Schedule your dosages each day at the very same time. You should always seek the advice of your doctor and be well informed of the side effects of this medication. Never consider taking this medication more often than what is prescribed by your doctor.

Always alert your doctor should you experience any specific types of allergies.

Meloxicam is thought to be quite reliable, and it improves the quality of life for many people who use it. If you are suffering from arthritis and are looking for a solution, consider making an appointment with your doctor to see if Meloxicam is the right choice for you.
