About Mobic (meloxicam)

Mobic (meloxicam) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by blocking specific enzymes and reducing prostaglandins—chemicals that trigger inflammation.

Mobic is primarily prescribed to relieve arthritis symptoms. It can help reduce joint pain, swelling, tenderness, and stiffness associated with arthritis.

Mobic is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation as well as under different brand names, including meloxicam.

Mobic may be prescribed as a tablet, suspension, or capsule. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you are prescribed Mobic, be sure to complete the full course of the NSAID unless your doctor specifically tells you to stop. If you don’t complete your prescription, the NSAID may not fully treat your arthritis.

Mobic uses

There are several FDA-approved uses for Mobic, but your healthcare provider may also prescribe it off-label to treat other medical conditions.

Your doctor may prescribe Mobic for the following reasons or other reasons not listed here. Ask your online doctor or pharmacist if you have questions about why a medication is prescribed.
