  • AStacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answered
    You should not take Mobic (meloxicam), a drug prescribed to treat osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, if:
    • you have had serious skin reactions or anaphylaxis (shock) reactions in the past after taking it
    • you have a history of asthma, hives or other allergic reactions after taking aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
    • you need to have heart bypass surgery
    • you have liver or kidney disease
    • you're breastfeeding 
    • you're pregnant (especially if you're beyond your 30th week of pregnancy)
    Give your doctor a complete medical history before you start taking Mobic because certain medical problems increase your risk for serious side effects.
