Pain Home > Meloxicam 15 Mg Tablets

If you have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, a healthcare provider may prescribe meloxicam (Mobic®) 15-mg tablets once daily. However, this amount is the maximum daily dosage for this medication. Typically, your healthcare provider will start you at a lower dosage amount, and increase your dose if symptoms do not improve within several weeks.
Your meloxicam dosage will be based on several factors, such as your age and weight, the medical condition being treated, other medical conditions you have, and other medications you are taking. It is important to take the lowest effective dose for the least amount of time in order to treat your condition. This will decrease the chances of serious side effects occurring.
For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not increase your dose without your healthcare provider's approval.
