Mobic (generic name: Meloxicam) is a drug which is prescribed for the treatment of pain in patients suffering from arthritis. The active ingredient is Meloxicam. Meloxicam belongs to the group of drugs called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, also known as NSAIDs. In patients with arthritis, the joints in the body become worn which causes pain as the bones rub against one another. This can affect knees, elbows, knuckles, toes, hips and any other joint in the body. NSAIDs work by reducing the hormones in the body that cause inflammation. This reduces the inflammation, which in turn helps to treat the pain caused by the inflammation. Arthritis is common in those aged over 60; however it can still affect people of all ages, especially those who have suffered an injury. It not only causes inflammation, but also stiffness and restricted movement of the joints, as well as redness and warmth of the joints that are affected.
