Drug Description


Piroxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) utilized to mitigate pain, swelling, and joint stiffness associated with arthritis. By diminishing these symptoms, it facilitates the resumption of routine daily activities. This medication exerts its effects by inhibiting the production of specific endogenous substances within the body that contribute to inflammation. If you are undergoing treatment for a chronic condition such as arthritis, consult your physician regarding non-pharmacological therapies or alternative medications to address your pain. 

Uses and Dosage 

FELDENE is specifically indicated for alleviating both the clinical manifestations and accompanying symptoms associated with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 

Following an initial assessment of the response to FELDENE therapy, adjustments to the dosage and frequency should be made to cater to the individual patient’s specific requirements. 

To alleviate symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, a daily oral dose of 20 mg is recommended. This dose may be administered as a single dose or divided throughout the day, based on patient preference. Due to the extended half-life of FELDENE, it takes approximately 7 to 12 days to achieve steady-state blood levels. Consequently, while the therapeutic effects of Feldene become apparent early in treatment, there is a gradual improvement over several weeks. Thus, refrain from assessing the effectiveness of therapy until at least two weeks of continuous treatment have transpired.
