Patient : Can I cross Meloxicamum with ibuprofenum?I have a flu, and the problem is...i got this terrible toothache.ibuprofenum won`t work can i take 7,5mg/day Meloxicamum
Doctor :   Thank you for writing to us. Ibuprofen and Meloxicamum are from the same class of drugs. They are both NSAIDs. This c an cause a few complications. NSAIDs generally cause acidity because they inhibit Mucous secretion. Also, they may not work well as they both have a similar action. I recommend that you talk to the Dentist to get a stronger pain killer. Wish you good health.
