Why do I need this medicine?
Piroxicam helps relieve pain and inflammation.

How do I take this medicine?
Take Piroxicam exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more than instructed by your doctor.

Always take Piroxicam together with food or immediately after a meal. Do not take it on an empty stomach.

Your doctor may also prescribe some antacid tablets to be taken with Piroxicam. If you have been given antacids, chew the antacid tablet before swallowing and take it at the same time as Piroxicam.

If you have been given the regular Piroxicam tablet, swallow it whole with a glass of water.

If you have been given the Piroxicam dispersible tablet, dissolve the tablet in at least 50 mL of water and drink.

What should I do if I have forgotten to take this medicine?
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and return to your normal dosing schedule.

DO NOT double a dose under any circumstances.

If you often forget to take your medicine, let your doctor and pharmacist know.

When should I not use this medicine?
Do not take Piroxicam if you:

- are pregnant or breastfeeding
- have a history of allergic reactions (swollen eyes or mouth, difficulty breathing, rashes) to similar medicines such as aspirin, indomethacin, ibuprofen, mefenamic acid or piroxicam
- have asthma
- have stomach ulcers or bleeding from the stomach
- have inflammation of the bowels (intestines)
- have problems with blood clotting

What should I take note of while taking this medicine?
Piroxicam may not be suitable for you if you have kidney, liver or heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure or if you have ever had a heart attack or a stroke. Alert your doctor if you have any of these conditions.

If you are going for an operation, including minor operations and dental work, inform your doctor or dentist that you are taking Piroxicam.

What side effects could I experience?
Piroxicam is likely to cause stomach discomfort such as nausea and stomach pain. Be sure to take it with food and the antacids, if prescribed.

Piroxicam may cause dizziness. If you feel dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity in which you need to be alert.

If you develop swelling of the eyes or mouth, rashes or have difficulty breathing, you may be allergic to Piroxicam. Stop the medicine and see the doctor quickly if this happens.

Alert your doctor if any of the following symptoms are severe or refuse to go away:

- stomach pain
- diarrhoea
- unusual tiredness
- dizziness

Some side effects may be serious and need immediate attention. These are usually more of a concern with long-term use and are usually not a problem with short-term or occasional use. Alert your doctor quickly if you experience any of these side effects:

- chest pain
- breathlessness
- black and sticky bowel movements

Can I take this with other medicines?
Do not take Piroxicam with these medicines. Alert your doctor if you are taking any of these medicines.

- steroids such as dexamethasone, prednisolone
- heart or blood pressure medicines such as furosemide (frusemide) and related medicines
