pharmachologic effect

The drug has analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effect.

Pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics


Meloxicam refers to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that have analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory effects.
The anti-inflammatory effect is associated with inhibition of the activity of cyclooxygenase-2, which participates in the synthesis of prostaglandins in the inflammatory focus. To a lesser extent, the drug has an effect on cyclooxygenase-1, also involved in the biosynthesis of prostaglandin, which protects the mucosa of the digestive tract and contributes to the regulation of blood flow in the kidneys.
Meloksikam belongs to the group of oxycam; chemically - derived enolic acid.


With intramuscular injection, the drug binds to plasma proteins by 98%. It penetrates through all the tissue barriers and penetrates into the joint fluid. The concentration in the joint fluid reaches 50% of the maximum concentration in the plasma.
It is excreted through the kidneys and intestines equally in the form of metabolites. In the original form, up to 5% of the daily dose of the drug is excreted through the intestine, with almost no toxicity in the urine unchanged. The half-life is 15-19 hours. Plasma clearance - 8 ml / min. The clearance of the drug is slower in patients older than 50 years. Renal or hepatic insufficiency of moderate severity has no effect on the pharmacokinetics of the drug.
Pills. The medicine is quickly absorbed from the intestine, the absolute bioavailability is 89%. Admission together with food does not alter adsorption. When using the drug orally in doses of 15 and 7.5 mg, its concentration in the blood is proportional. Meloksikam is completely metabolized in the liver, as a result, up to four inert derivatives can be formed. The main metabolite, 5-carboxymelloxicam, is formed from the oxidation of 5-hydroxymethylmeloxicam. Peroxidase is involved in the production of the other two derivatives.
