Comments from related studies:
From this study (7 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.
Becky on Jun, 8, 2011:
After taking only 3 days of Meloxicam, I have noticible swelling of the left foot. I am taking the drug due to swelling of my left knee 4 months after knee surgery.

Have been taking this product for a little over a month and the nausea is getting worse but the pain is not. This seems to be causing more problems. This side effect occurs with or without food, and with or without a full glass of water.
