Default mobic? (celebrex)


i was just rx'd mobic for osteo athritis in my hip. i can't take
celebrex or bextra and won't take vioxx (two people i know i very
strange behavior - even for them - while on vioxx so i'll pass) so the
rheumie says this is the next best. he started me out on 7.5 mg to see
if i can tolerate it without stomach problems (EVERYthing upsets my
stomach!). does this stuff work? he said that if we don't stop the
deterioration in this hip i'm facing a hip replacement in 5 years! any
comments on mobic? thanks in advance.

Default mobic? (stomach)


My husband and I have taken mobic. It does pretty good once you have it in
your system for a while. Takes a few days. It has never bothered my stomach.
But just to be safe I would take it with food. My problem is my insurance
will not pay for it. I have to get samples from the kind doctor. Insurance
companies are a pain!

Default mobic? (mobic)


HI Madison!

Here's some info on Mobic. I know J took this & stopped. I believe it
was affecting her eyes? She will likely respond & let you know.

I hope it works for you though & I hope the insurance covers it. Good
luck! Maggie

Default mobic? (osteoarthritis)


Do you keep notes? <g> Great memory maggie !
I've never tried celebrex or bextra but couldn't tolerate Vioxx.
I have osteoarthritis throughout the body but shoulder joints are the worst.
So Mobic at 7.5 or maybe a bit more, takes the edge off but as soon as I try to
increase the dose, reflux (GERD) gets worse and I see that mentioned on your website
above.

The ones I have are http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic3/mobic_ad.htm
and http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic3/sulindac_ad.htm Sulindac I had high hopes for
that one but it too at maximum daily dose barely took the edge off. I hope that
madison has better luck than me.

the eyes..well it happened once soon after stopping the Sulindac so I concluded that
it wasn't the meds and the eye doctor says it's probably not the meds (but he never
looked them up). he thinks it's aging and/or combo of my wrong multi-vitamin.
Strangely the same thing has not happened since I stopped the meds, so I don't know.
I will pop one or the other or both when I get desperate for any type of relief.
There might have been another problem with Sulindac, but I don't have my notes handy,
and I don't want to put ideas into madison's head. Jinx her. Will watch with
interest and hope she gets some relief
Hugs Maggie

I was prescribed mobic awhile ago -- but I did not see results. However,
none of the drugs such as Vioxx, Celebrex or Bextra have helped with my
pain. I do know that the drug came very highly recommended to me. I hope it
works for you! It did not upset my stomach though -- so maybe it will be
good for you. Keep us updated.

Default mobic? (itching)


Under side effects it (Mobid) did have "edema" mentioned.

this one does not mention edema
http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic3/sulindac_ad.htm

However, it mentions rash and itching. (which I did not get)

I remember now, I was getting headaches,
but everyone's different..
Hugs

Default mobic? (lupus)


With one of the side effects being sensitive to the sun, I wouldn't imagine
giving it to someone with lupus as you already have potential to have that
problem with out the medication...JMO as I don't have lupus and I am not a
doctor....Just me rambling
Hugs Cindy

Default mobic? (arthritis)


NSAIDs don't stop the damage. In the recent issue of Arthritis Today, a
RD's wife was trying to save her hip. She took glucosamine and vit c. She
did have to have the hip replaced. Just passing the info along
