Hi windseakr,

First, I want to welcome you to the PM (Pain Management) Forum and let you know that we are glad you found this Forum. We are all CP (Chronic Pain) Patients that help each other with our own expertise and experiences that we have developed through our own CP Issues.

Meloxicam (Mobic) is most commonly used for reducing pain, inflammation and joint swelling associated with different forms of arthritis.  It's in the family of NSAID's medications. As far as I know it's not a muscle relaxer.

I hope this has been of some help to you...........Sherry  :)

No it's not a muscle relaxer. It's a NSAID or an anti-inflammatory just like Aleve (Naproxen).
