This is a review of Mobic Gout Relief Supplement. Mobic or meloxicam helps reduce inflammation and pain in gout patients. Mobic is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that alters hormonal activity (inhibits the formation of prostaglandins, thromboxanes, and prostacyclin) in the body to reduce inflammation. Gout is a type of arthritis that affects millions of people. It is cause by a uric acid accumulation up the blood and which then causes joint inflammation. There are two types of gout: acute and chronic. Acute gout is a painful condition that usually affects only one joint; chronic gout is defined by repeat periods of pain and inflammation. With chronic gout often multiple joints are affected. We decided to conduct some independent research online. Read on to learn more about this product and whether it is right for your situation.
- Meloxicam (C14H13N3O4S2)
- Inactive ingredients in tablet: Colloidal silicon dioxide, crospovidone, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose, povidone, sodium citrate dehydrate

The maximum recommended daily oral dosage of Mobic is 15mg. Patients should ideally start with 7.5mg once daily and then increase the dose if required. In patients with hemodialysis, the maximum dosage should be halved. This dose can be taken at any time regardless of meal timings. However, due to its potential side effects, the lowest effective dosage should be taken for the shortest period of time possible.
Mobic can cause many major side effects like cardiac or circulatory problems such as heart attacks or strokes. It can also cause perforations in the stomach or intestine. It can cause delay in ovulation and can harm the foetus, and so should not be used by women who are trying to conceive or are pregnant or lactating. People who have a history of heart disease, stomach ulcers, liver or kidney disease, should not use Mobic without consulting a doctor. If you experience any chest pain, shortness of breath, slurring of speech, bloody vomit or stool, you should visit a doctor immediately. People who are allergic to meloxicam should avoid this medicine. It may also cause arm, back or jaw pain, bleeding gums, bloody urine, burning stomach pain, cough, chills, bloating, dizziness, headache, hives, increased blood pressure, increased sensitivity to sunlight, loss of appetite, painful urination, itchy skin, seizures, nausea, mouth ulcers, unusual bleeding or bruising, diarrhoea, heartburn, etc.
Mobic also interacts negatively with many other drugs and the consulting physician should be informed of all existing medication the patient is on. Alcohol should be avoided while on Mobic.
The oral suspension of Mobic costs $167.15 for a 100ml bottle (lasts 13 days). The 7.5mg tablet pack costs $99.39 for 14 tablets and the 15mg tablets cost $939.69 for 100 tablets. This price is extremely high compared to that of natural gout supplements. However, since this is actual medication and not a dietary supplement, its cost is often covered under insurance.
Like other prescription drugs, Mobic does not come with any money back guarantee but has to adhere to strict quality control.
Mobic is a medicine for gout. While natural supplements may reduce symptoms or relieve pain and inflammation, they are not treatments or cures. Mobic is quite expensive and also has many side effects. It is not natural. However, it is an anti-inflammatory drug that can be taken whenever gout flares up. It can be taken regularly to reduce the incidence or gout and reduce the intensity of the attacks. It does carry a let down though; this product has no guarantee of any kind.
