Special dosage considerations
For people receiving hemodialysis: This drug isn’t removed in dialysis. Taking a typical dosage of Meloxic while receiving hemodialysis may cause a buildup of the drug in your blood. This could cause worsened side effects. The maximum daily dose for people ages 18 years and older and receiving hemodialysis is 7.5 mg per day.
Juvenile Rheumato > The use of Meloxic for the treatment of the signs and symptoms of pauciarticular or polyarticular course Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis in patients 2 years of age and older was evaluated in two 12-week, double-blind, parallel-arm, active-controlled trials.
Both studies included three arms: naproxen and two doses of Meloxic. In both studies, Meloxic dosing began at 0.125 mg/kg/day (7.5 mg maximum) or 0.25 mg/kg/day (15 mg maximum), and naproxen dosing began at 10 mg/kg/day. One study used these doses throughout the 12-week dosing period, while the other incorporated a titration after 4 weeks to doses of 0.25 mg/kg/day and 0.375 mg/kg/day (22.5 mg maximum) of Meloxic and 15 mg/kg/day of naproxen.
The efficacy analysis used the ACR Pediatric 30 responder definition, a composite of parent and investigator assessments, counts of active joints and joints with limited range of motion, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate. The proportion of responders were similar in all three groups in both studies, and no difference was observed between the Meloxic dose groups.
Prospective studies show that up to 7% of patients taking Meloxic experience at least transient serum aminotransferase elevations. These may resolve even with drug continuation. Aminotransferase elevations >3 fold elevated occur in 1% of patients. Clinically apparent liver injury with jaundice from Meloxic is rare and only individual case reports have been published. The latency to onset in reported cases was short (1-5 weeks) and both cholestatic and hepatocellular patterns of enzyme elevations were described. Immunoallergic features are usually not prominent and autoantibodies are rare, although a single case report of autoimmune hepatitis apparently triggered by Meloxic therapy has been published. Recovery is typically rapid once Meloxic is stopped. Meloxic is rarely mentioned as an etiologic agent in large case series on drug induced liver injury and acute liver failure.
Rated Meloxic for Moderate Pain Report
Meloxic made me feel sad and took away my positivity about my recovery. I was prescribed 15mg every day for whiplash to help with pain and inflammation. Before this I was taking ibuprofen 3x a day which worked well and kept me in a positive attitude. Meloxic was supposed to be a 1 pill shortcut. Instead it made me feel sad like it was going to take forever to heal. Two days after stopping it i was back to my positive self.
