Meloxicam Injection manufacturer

Meloxicam injection is used alone or in combination with other pain medications for the short-term relief of moderate to severe pain in adults, usually after surgery.

Meloxicam Injection, also known by the brand name Mobic, is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat pain and inflammation in rheumatic diseases and osteoarthritis. Here are some important points about it:

  • Purpose and Mechanism of Action:

    • Meloxicam works by inhibiting the production of substances that cause pain, fever, and inflammation in the body.
    • It is commonly used for short-term pain relief after surgery, either alone or in combination with other pain medications1.
  • Administration:

    • Meloxicam injection can be given alone or in conjunction with other pain medicines.
    • It is administered under the direct supervision of a doctor.
    • The recommended duration of use is as short as possible and at a low dose2.
  • Special Precautions and Warnings:

    • Heart Attack and Stroke Risk: People treated with NSAIDs (other than aspirin) like meloxicam injection may have a higher risk of heart attacks or strokes. This risk may be higher for those taking NSAIDs for an extended period.
    • Ulcer and Bleeding Risk: NSAIDs can cause ulcers, bleeding, or holes in the stomach or intestine. These problems may occur without warning symptoms.
    • Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG): Avoid meloxicam injection right before or after CABG surgery.
    • Other Medications: Inform your doctor if you take anticoagulants, aspirin, other NSAIDs, oral steroids, SSRIs, or SNRIs.
    • Symptoms to Watch For: Seek medical help if you experience chest pain, shortness of breath, weakness on one side of the body, or slurred speech.
    • Stomach and Intestinal Symptoms: Stop using meloxicam injection and contact your doctor if you have stomach pain, heartburn, bloody vomit, blood in the stool, or black, tarry stools1.
  • Composition:

    • Each mL of meloxicam injection contains meloxicam 5.0 mg, alcohol 15%, glycofurol 10%, poloxamer 188 5%, sodium chloride 0.6%, glycine 0.5%, and meglumine 0.3%.
    • It is a sterile product for injection3.

Remember to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully while using meloxicam injection. If you have any specific concerns or need further information, consult your healthcare provider1. 🌿🌟
