Likewise. I have not changed my diet/exercise and saw a 6 pound gain in only a few days. I am wondering: is this permanent? Water retention or actual weight gain, and what can be done to reverse this effect? Thanks

Hurt my shoulder at work loading suitcases onto airplanes... I gained 5 pounds in two weeks but haven't been taking my pills this week and still gained another two. It must be 'cuz I'm not working.

Same here. I was on a diet, and hurt my hip. I was put on mobic 2 times daily. Got on the scales this morning, and after only 2 days, gained 3 pounds. And I'm tired too. I've been on Mobic before. My pain is all but gone, though.

perhaps the 5 pound weight gain from your damaged hip caused the problem because you could not get around well enough to burn the excess calorie intake from the injury.

Meloxicam and Weight Gain
I have been on Meloxicam for about a year now. I had been successfully losing weight prior to that. I had not really noticed a huge weight gain other than my clothes had started getting tighter and not looking as slim as I had been. So I decided to try a few days without it and sure enough I had weight gain fall off in that short time. The pain in my knee is slowly coming back but I can't afford to be even heavier than I am already. I will say it does take the pain away almost immediately and you realize how much you have been moving around without the medication. I would recommend if you don't have the reaction to it. I think in the past year have gained a good 20 lbs just thinking it was diet alone.
