Piroxicam 10mg Capsules

This medicine belongs to a group of drugs known as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These are used for the relief of pain and inflammation associated with muscle and joint disorders and other painful conditions.

Before prescribing piroxicam, your doctor will assess the benefits this medicine may give you against your risk of developing side effects.
Your doctor may need to give you check-ups and will tell you how often you need to be checked, due to you taking piroxicam.

Piroxicam Capsules are used to relieve some symptoms caused by osteoarthritis (arthrosis, degenerative joint disease), rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis (rheumatism of the spine), such as swelling, stiffness and joint pain. It does not cure arthritis and will help you only as long as you continue to take it. Your doctor will prescribe piroxicam to you
only when you have had unsatisfactory relief of symptoms with other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (NSAIDs).
