Mobic, which is generically known as Meloxicam, is an anti-inflammatory drug. It was marketed as a replacement for Vioxx, after Vioxx was pulled from the market because of its general lack of efficacy. Unfortunately, Mobic is not without its own share of problems, many of which are eerily similar to the problems of Vioxx, Bextra, and Celebrex. Mobic was developed by Boehringer Ingelheim, but it is marketed by Abbot Laboratories for the United States market.
Certain studies have found that the statistical risk for Mobic side effects was actually higher than the risk for drugs like Celebrex, Vioxx, and Bextra. The study analyzed over 15,000 heart attack patients, and it was one of the largest studies of its kind. Aside of heart attacks, Mobic has a variety of other side effects. Mobic adverse effects include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Blinding headaches
- Dark Stool
- Gastrointestinal Toxicity
- Intestinal Bleeding
- Heart Attacks
- Cardiovascular Problems
Even though Mobic has a variety of extremely dangerous side effects, it is one of the most prescribed painkillers in the United Sates. According to David Graham, associate director for science and medicine of the Office of Drug Safety at the Food and Drug Administration, Mobic might have more dangerous side effects, such as stroke, heart attack, and cardiovascular problems, than do other painkillers, even known defective drugs like Vioxx.
