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.
