Meloxicam helps with knee swelling/pain
I was prescribed Meloxicam 4 months ago. I have not had any issues with it. I was prescribed 15 mg tabs and only take half as needed. I may go a week without needing it. Typically when I do a lot of squatting or yard work is when my knees swell. Take half a tablet and 30 minutes later feel like new again.

Dudley your comment has no effect on the question of meloxicam vs. turmeric??

I have found that the Doctor did not prescribe a strong enough mixture for the servere pain I have. What he gave me .3/5/4% much too weak. I have found this mild mixture to be very good on Insect bites though, especially where you have to pull off one of those nasty Ticks!
