What is Piroxicam used for?

Piroxicam (Feldene) is a class of drug known as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory(NSAID). It is used to relieve pain and inflammation caused by rheumatoid and osteoarthritis.

It works by reducing the hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Inflammation is pain or swelling in muscle and stiffness in joints. Piroxicam helps to relieve this condition. It can take 7 to 12 days for symptoms to improve. To get the best results you should keep using the medication as directed. Talk with your doctor if your symptoms do not improve. Store Piroxicam at room temperature away from moisture and heat.

Use of Piroxicam

Always take this drug exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Piroxicam is taken orally and can be taken with a glass of water. Regular use of this medicine will help with pain relief.
