Although most people tolerate it well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before starting treatment with Mobic, the pain medicine's warnings and precautions should be fully reviewed with your healthcare provider. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you may have and any other medications you are taking.
