NSAID used primarily in the treatment of arthritic/joint pain. This enolic acid derivative works by inhibiting enzyme(s) responsible for prostaglandin synthesis; thus decreases inflammatory properties.

Hey what’s up guys welcome back gets that farm kid with my first video my series med of the week i’ll post one of these every friday about five minutes in length let make sure it’s quick and concise just for review for you all i’ll definitely pick a branded medication every week but i am more than welcome to take suggestions as to medications that we’d all like to

Learn about and make a quick video on them so without further ado let’s get started the medication i picked for this week is mobic the generic is meloxicam this medication exists as in the no lacasa derivative otherwise known as or ox accounts similar medications within this class you have peroxo cam or nox our cam it’s something that we can definitely see within

All these is that oxic am ending this medication exists as an inset or a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug so we can see some in type heretic effects from it and some logistic properties some adverse effects on this medication there is an increased risk as well as with all other insects for that gastrointestinal toxicity we also have any risk for increased

Bleeding some signs and symptoms of this with an internal bleeding’s and darker tari stools might be a sign otherwise bruising around the body or bleeding gums when brushing your teeth meloxicam in specific does have fewer gastrointestinal side effects but it is an incense that’s definitely something to keep in mind some contraindications for this medication it

Is a pregnancy category c so should not be taken within the third trimester of pregnancy it does have an increased risk of cardiac events unlike aspirin which is an inside so it should be avoided for those that have had a history of stroke or myocardial infarction as i mentioned about that gastrointestinal bleeding it should be avoided with those that have been

Affected by peptic ulcers and then those that suffer with ibs so how does meloxicam work meloxicam inhibits the enzyme cox-2 otherwise known as cyclooxygenase it also has some properties on clocks one but it favorably inhibits that cox-2 enzyme this enzyme is responsible for the synthesis of prostaglandins so this is definitely a mediator of inflammation we have

Your maca donek acid which converts into prostaglandin h2 this is due in part to the help about enzyme cox-2 but because we have meloxicam inhibits that enzyme thus decreases inflammation swelling etc meloxicam is available in seven point five milligrams and a 15 milligram dose where 15 milligrams is the maximum dosage every day 7.5 can be taken every day – twice

Daily it has an onset of about 30 to 60 minutes or the half-life about 20 hours last they’ll discuss some counseling points with your patients because we did mention that it is hard on the stomach it’s important that this medication is taken with food or at least eight ounces of milk as i mentioned with that half-life of about 20 hours this is taken around the same

Time every day studies showed that this medication works better when it’s taken consistently not just as needed to help overall inflammation decrease another very important thing to mention to your patients it is because we do have those over-the-counter insides that are within the same family of these medications we should definitely avoid naproxen or ibuprofen

An adjunct to this medication however it is okay to take tylenol all things considered we have meloxicam or brand name is mobic it is available on a 7.5 and 15 milligram dose where 15 milligrams is the max dose taken every day it is an insight so it does have antipyretic and analgesic effects however it does have that increased concentration within the synovial

Fluid so it does have a stronger efficacy towards arthritic pain adverse effects similar to your over-the-counter naproxen ibuprofen or prescription diclofenac indomethacin would be that gastrointestinal toxicity increased bleeding some signs of that would be darker tari stools or even a bruising or bleeding gums contraindications should not be taken within that

Third trimester pregnancy is an increased risk of cardiac events it functions as a clocks to enzyme inhibitor that prevents the conversion of arachidonic acid into that prostaglandin counseling points you should have that medication with food taken about the same time every day due to the about 20 hour half-life in to avoid over-the-counter in sides but tylenol

Is okay to take with this medication that’s all for today you guys i will put a new video next friday as well as a video i’m working on about my pharmd interview and thank you guys so much for watching and let me know if you have any medications that you want to see next
