My brother was given this today for pain. I have never taken it and was wondering if any of you have. I have taken so many pain pills and NOTHING helps. They want to do steroid injections again in my back. I have nerve damage and am taking Lyrica (3 times a day...150 mg). I am allergic to Morphine and all by products. I cannot take Vicodene but I can take Ultracet. I take Soma (the generic) and Hydrocodone. Nothing seems to help. On a whim I bought Equate brand Arthritis Medication and it helped so much that I was able to do major spring cleaning but now I am without energy once again since the weather change. I live by myself and have to be able to take care of my pets much less myself. I know this is long but I desperately need help as I don't want any more steroids or surgeries. I have had three on my back and two were major. The fussion took, praise God!! but they had to go inside a year later and take out the hardware. Before that I developed an infection in my back and it opened up. For the life of me I cannot remember the name but it is what the spinach caused. I suffered with this for over a year and had to give myself treatments of antibiotics. My doctor at that time told me I have a bone disease and the orthopedic doctor said my bones have shrunk since the last surgery. I try not to think of what could have happened but believe that God has had His protective arms around me all this time. My injury was work related...the company left me the industrial two wheel dolly and took the cheaper one to a convention....they didn't want the expensive one stolen. I loaded two 50 lb boxes of copier paper on the dolly and when I pulled back the damage was done. This happened five years ago and I was terminated. I have gone thru 10 physical therapy programs to which I have to laugh at. I am now going to a chronic pain doctor. As a note to those of you who are referred to one, don't make a mistake like I did with the first one. They kept me so doped up for a year and I missed out on a lot. Anyways I will stop here and ask for others to share any use of mobic/meloxicam for pain. Thanks and may you have a pain free day!!! It is heaven on earth when we do have that in our life. I am just glad that I am a widow because at times I cannot stand myself!!

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
