Meloxicam is a painkiller that is part of the group of drugs known as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Meloxicam not only relieves pain, but also has a fever-reducing and anti-inflammatory effect.
Meloxicam is prescribed for, amongst other things, arthrosis (worn joints), rheumatoid arthritis and Bechterew’s disease.
Meloxicam and the benefit of DNA analysis
The rate at which meloxicam is processed within your body varies from one individual to another. This means that the efficacy and side effects of meloxicam can be predicted to some extent on the basis of your genes.
Preventive DNA analysis can therefore be an important tool in optimising your medication.
