Discussing Mobic With Your Doctor

What Should I Tell My Healthcare Provider Before Taking Mobic?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that people using NSAIDs, including Mobic, may have a higher risk for heart attack or stroke than those people who do not take them. This warning does not apply to those who take aspirin. This risk may be higher in people who have been taking NSAIDs for a long time. These events can occur without warning and can lead to death. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have or have ever had any of the following:

  • Diabetes
  • Stomach ulcers, stomach bleeding, or a history of either condition
  • Any allergies to medicines, including aspirin or other NSAID pain medicines.
     
In addition, let your healthcare provider know if you:
 
  • Are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant (see Mobic and Pregnancy)
  • Are breastfeeding
