How to Decrease Mobic Dosage Safely
Meloxicam (Mobic) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicine used to manage rheumatoid arthritis by reducing pain, swelling, and stiffness. Meloxicam is only available with a doctor’s prescription. The potential side effects of Mobic and similar anti-inflammatory drugs are ulcers and other digestive problems. The drugs also can cause problems if you already have kidney failure or heart failure. You can safely decrease Mobic dosages by asking your doctor to prescribe a lower dosage. This can help to gradually decrease the quantity without having to skip dosages or deal with the side effects.
Take Mobic Oral once daily, or as prescribed by a doctor. Liquid form should be shaken well and followed by a glass of water.
Take the dosage that is prescribed by your physician. Have your doctor prescribe a low dosage to decrease the chances of side effects, including stomach ulcers and digestive problems.
Decrease Mobic dosage safely by starting with the lowest tablet dosage — between 7.5 to 15 milligrams per day (dosage also depend on weight). The liquid form of Mobic requires the same dosage. Take lower dosages thereafter (as prescribed by a physician), until treatment is complete.
Do not skip taking Mobic in the efforts to decrease dosage. Missed dosages should be taken as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dosage, skip that dose and resume the usual dosing schedule the following day. Do not double dosages in order to catch up.
Use caution when using Mobic. This drug can have adverse side effects to people with allergies to nonsteroidal drugs or aspirin, and should not be used if you have certain medical conditions such as liver or kidney disease, heart failure, asthma, or suffer from certain blood disorders.
