I discuss meloxicam pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions, and much more on this episode of the Real Life Pharmacology Podcast.
Meloxicam tends to have a greater affinity to COX-2 versus COX-1. I discuss what this means clinically on this episode.
Important meloxicam drug interactions include anticoagulants, antiplatelet medications, renal impairing drugs, and lithium amongst others.
Meloxicam has a longer half-life than many NSAIDs and because of this can be dosed once daily for pain relief.
