Meloxicam helps with knee swelling/pain
| gardenerbychoice
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.
