What is Muvera (Meloxicam) used for?
Muvera (Meloxicam) is an oral non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) used to treat patients suffering from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. The medication operates by preventing the action of certain enzymes in the body responsible for causing inflammation, swelling, and pain associated with these conditions. This action reduces swelling to reduce pain and increase the ease of joint movements. Your doctor may prescribe this medicine to be taken along with others or for the treatment of other unlisted conditions, as well.

These should be swallowed with a full cup of water and may be taken on an empty stomach, although a snack or meal is suggested before use if you get an upset stomach. Avoid chewing, splitting, or crushing the tablets as this may destroy or change the effects of their contents.
