Meloxicam Tablets


Meloxicam is a once-a-day dosing for 24 hour relief from pain and inflammation in in both acute and chronic musculoskeletal disorders and the reduction of postoperative pain and inflammation following orthopedic and soft tissue surgery.

Meloxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). All NSAIDs should be administered cautiously in the perioperative period as they may adversely affect renal perfusion during periods of hypotension. If hypotension during anaesthesia is anticipated, delay meloxicam administration until the animal is fully recovered from anaesthesia and normotensive. Liver disease will prolong the metabolism of meloxicam leading to the potential for drug accumulation and overdose with repeated dosing. The oral dose may be administered directly into the mouth or mixed with food. In the cat, due to the longer half-life and narrower therapeutic index of NSAIDs, particular care should be taken to ensure the accuracy of dosing and not to exceed the recommended dose. Administration to animals with renal disease must be carefully evaluated.

Drug Interactions: Do not administer concurrently or within 24 hours of other NSAIDs and glucocorticoids. Do not administer with other potentially nephrotoxic agents, e.g. aminoglycosides
Contraindications: Do not give to dehydrated, hypovolemic or hypotensive patients or those with GI disease or blood clotting problems. Administration of meloxicam to animals with renal disease must be carefully evaluated and is not advisable in the perioperative period. Do not give to pregnant animals or animals <6 weeks of age.
Adverse Reactions: GI signs may occur in all animals after NSAID administration. Stop therapy if this persists beyond 1-2 days. Some animals develop signs with one NSAID drug and not another. A?1-2-week wash-out period should be allowed before starting another NSAID after cessation of therapy. Stop therapy immediately if GI bleeding is suspected. There is a small risk that NSAIDs may precipitate cardiac failure in animals with cardiovascular disease.
