Motrin/Ibuprofen vs. Meloxicam
I have had back pain for more than 50 years. My back was bent due to the pain. Doctors said, it is due to scoliosis. For the last 15 plus years, they gave me Motrin/Ibuprofen 800 mg three times a day plus exercise, chiropractor, therapy...Nothing worked. My new Doctor (Pain Management) said, pain due to a minor scoliosis and arthritis. He gave me Meloxicam 7.5mg two times a day. "Magic" happened. After taking only 3 tablets, I'm a new man (63 years old). The pain is gone about 70%. My back is straight almost as your pencil. Try Meloxicam if Ibuprofen did not work for you.
