    Meloxicam is in a class of medications called, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. It is similar to ibuprofen in the way it works.  However, it is supposed to be more specifically targeted so that it does not cause as many problems with the GI tract. It is not advisable to try any other medication in this class at If you are experiencing a GI bleed while taking meloxicam. Because the meloxicam does work to reduce inflammation in the joints it does make sense that it was working better than the hydrocodone does.  Please follow up with your doctor to discuss your alternatives to hydrocodone for long-term pain relief.
