Warfarin (Coumadin, Jantoven)
If you are taking blood thinners, such as warfarin, while taking meloxicam, your body may metabolize them differently than intended. Your healthcare provider may choose to monitor your INR and prothrombin time more frequently and adjust accordingly. INR and prothrombin time are tests used to measure how well your blood is clotting.
Other Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
Using these pain relievers with meloxicam can increase the risk of bleeding. Acetaminophen (Tylenol®) products can be safely used.
Aspirin and meloxicam can be used together; however, studies have indicated that the chances of developing stomach ulcers are higher when these medicines are combined. For your particular situation, talk with your healthcare provider about using aspirin and meloxicam together.
