What is Mobic used for? 

Mobic is used to relieve the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis in adults.

Who should not take Mobic? 

You should not take Mobic if you have experienced asthma, hives, or allergic-type reactions after taking aspirin or other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). A few examples of other NSAIDs are ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofenac, nabumetone, and ketoprofen.

Special Warnings with Mobic:

Serious problems from stomach ulcers such as bleeding are recognized complications in people treated with NSAIDs. Similar problems have occurred in people treated with Mobic. The likelihood of stomach problems increases the longer you take drugs like Mobic. However, even short-term treatment is not without risk. These problems can happen without any warning, but in some people may cause symptoms such as gnawing or burning stomach pain, black or tarry stools, or vomiting. If this happens, stop taking Mobic and call your health care provider right away.

Check with your health care provider. Mobic may not be right for you, if you:

  • have had ulcers or stomach bleeding
  • have had asthma, hives or allergic-type reactions after taking aspirin or other NSAIDs
  • have severe kidney problems
  • have severe liver problems
  • are pregnant

General Precautions with Mobic: 

Do not stop taking any medications that you have been prescribed without first talking to your health care provider.

Serious problems such as liver damage have occurred in people treated with NSAIDs. Some of the warning signs of liver damage can be nausea, vomiting, fatigue, loss of appetite, itching, yellow coloring of skin or eyes, "flu-like" symptoms and dark urine. If you experience any of these symptoms, call your health care provider right away.

Mobic can cause your body to retain fluid and swell. Your health care provider will decide if Mobic is right for you, if you:

  • retain fluids
  • have high blood pressure
  • have heart failure

If you have asthma, you may have aspirin-sensitive asthma. If an aspirin-sensitive asthmatic takes aspirin it can cause severe narrowing of the airway (bronchospasm), and even death. Since this type of reaction also has occurred after taking NSAIDs. Mobic should not be given to aspirin-sensitive patients.

The safety and effectiveness of Mobic in patients below the age of 18 years has not been determined.

What should I tell my doctor or health care provider? 

Tell your health care provider if you are trying to become pregnant, are already pregnant, or are breast-feeding.

Because certain other medications can interact with Mobic, review all medications that you are taking with your health care provider, including those that you take without a prescription.

Your health care provider may have to adjust your dose or monitor you more closely if you take:

  • certain blood pressure medications called ACE-inhibitors
  • furosemide
  • lithium
  • warfarin
  • aspirin

What are some possible side effects of Mobic? (This is NOT a complete list of side effects reported with Mobic. Your health care provider can discuss with you a more complete list of side effects.)   

  • Indigestion
  • Upper respiratory tract infection
  • Diarrhea
  • Joint pain
  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea

Rarely, serious ulcers have occurred in patients taking Mobic.

For more detailed information about Mobic, ask your health care provider.
