Mode of Action :

Meloxicam is a potent long-acting Non-steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug (NSAID) belonging to the Oxicam group of Drugs. It acts by inhibiting Prostaglandins synthesis, thereby exerting powerful Anti-inflammatory, Analgesic and Antipyretic effect. Meloxicam also has endo-toxic effect as it inhibits Thromboxane B2 which is responsible for vasoconstriction and platelet aggregation. Therefore, it ensures normal blood viscosity and smooth flow. Since Prostaglandins are the primary mediators of pain and inflammation, Meloxicam reduces the Prostaglandins level at the peripheral levels and provides as an excellent anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect- relief from pain, inflammation, and pyrexia.
