Description

Meloxicam Pharmacodynamics
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic effects. It belongs to the class of oxycams, a derivative of enolic acid. Mechanism of action – inhibition of prostaglandin (Pd) synthesis as a result of selective inhibition of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) enzymatic activity. When prescribed in high doses, prolonged use and individual characteristics of the body COX-2 selectivity decreases. Suppresses prostaglandin (Pd) synthesis in the area of inflammation to a greater extent than in the gastrointestinal mucosa or kidneys, which is due to the relatively selective inhibition of COX-2, whereas inhibition of the ever-present COX-1 isoenzyme may cause gastrointestinal and renal side effects.

Indications
Short-term symptomatic therapy for rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and other joint diseases accompanied by pain syndrome.
Designed to reduce pain and inflammation at the time of use, does not affect the progression of the disease.

– acute gastrointestinal bleeding, recent cerebrovascular bleeding, or diagnosed clotting disorders;
-Severe uncontrolled heart failure;
– contraindicated in the period following aortocoronary bypass surgery;
