Mobic Indication:

For the treatment of arthritis and osteoarthritis.

Mobic Mechanism Of Action:

Anti-inflammatory effects of meloxicam are believed to be due to inhibition of prostaglandin synthetase (cylooxygenase), leading to the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis. As prostaglandins sensitize pain receptors, inhibition of their synthesis may be associated with the analgesic and antipyretic effects of meloxicam.

Mobic Drug Interactions:

Anisindione Mobic increases the anticoagulant effect
Dicumarol Mobic increases the anticoagulant effect
