I am 72 years old. I have taken NSAIDs for years and would like to keep taking them. For the last couple of years, I have been taking meloxicam every day.
I am concerned about the recent FDA warnings concerning NSAIDs. http://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/ucm451800.htm
I do not know how to calculate the danger of stroke and heart attack if I keep taking meloxicam.
Can anyone put these new FDA warnings in terms that I can understand so that I can make an informed choice?
