PIROXICAM

Information for patients
Drug Information PIROXICAM is one of a group of medicines called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This means it will help to relieve pain and reduce swelling affecting joints. PIROXICAM is used to relieve some symptoms caused by osteoarthritis (joint disease), rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis (rheumatism of the spine) such as swelling, stiffness and joint pain. This medicine does not cure arthritis and will help you only as long as you continue to take it. Your doctor will only prescribe PIROXICAM to you when you have had unsatisfactory relief of symptoms with other NSAIDs.
