Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
After being off medication just over a week, swelling is almost gone....but now 4 nodules have appeared on my shins. After doing online reseach I believe these, in addition to initial swelling, to be attributed to meloxicam. Ankle pain and swelling I was experiencing got so bad I had to resort to a walker in the mornins......I am 48. Currently taking generic ibuprofen and feeling much better.. Hopefully these nodules will not worsen and will disappear.
From this study (3 years ago):
I began taking Oracea two days ago. I have severely swollen ankles, feet, toes, and lower legs. There is also an itchy rash on my lower legs.
