I have been prescribed Meloxicam 15 mg and Celebrex 200 mg

Resolved Question:

I have been prescribed Meloxicam 15 mg and Celebrex 200 mg by my doctor. I have serious arthritis in my back. Causes a lot of pain and sleepless nights. Can I take both Meloxicam and Celebrex at the same time. I also have Tramadol 37.5. Can I take this with the fore mentioned? Appreciate your help

There are moderate drug interactions between Meloxicam and Celebrex (there can be stomach bleeding). So both of them should be avoided together. Tramadol and Celebrex though have a moderate drug interaction (Celebrex blood levels are increased by Tramadol), but can be taken together. Meloxicam and Tramadol do not have significant drug interactions.
