Full Prescribing Info
Drug Interactions
Cholestyramine significantly increases the clearance of Mel-OD which probably undergoes recirculation in the gut. Concomitant administration of antacids, cimetidine, ASA, furosemide, digoxin and warfarin does not affect the pharmacokinetics of meloxicam. Conversely, meloxicam does not affect the pharmacokinetics of furosemide, digoxin, methotrexate and warfarin. However, like other NSAIDs, patients on meloxicam have an increased risk of bleeding if they are on anticoagulants and the hypertensive response of certain drugs eg, ACE inhibitors can be blunted.
