What are the side effects of long term use of meloxicam?

Stop using meloxicam and call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:
  • chest pain, weakness, shortness of breath, slurred speech, problems with vision or balance;
  • black, bloody, or tarry stools;
  • coughing up blood or vomit that looks like coffee grounds;
  • swelling or rapid weight gain;

Similarly one may ask, can you get a high off of meloxicam?

Although meloxicam has some potentially dangerous side effects, like other NSAIDs, it is not able to cause euphoria, or a high, that could potentially lead to addiction or substance abuse. These people may find some relief from their pain by taking meloxicam, but if they do experience euphoria, it is a placebo effect.

How much meloxicam can be taken in a day?

For the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis: The usual dose of meloxicam is 15 mg taken as a single dose each day. Depending on your response, your doctor may reduce this dose to 7.5 mg taken as a single dose each day. The maximum recommended daily dose of meloxicam is 15 mg.
