Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2008.


Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
Has anti-inflammatory, antipyretic, analgesic effect. Take the class of oxycomas; a derivative of enolic acid. Meloksikam suppresses the synthesis of prostaglandins in the inflammation region to a greater extent than in the gastric mucosa or kidneys, which is due to the relatively selective inhibition of COX-2. When administered in high doses, prolonged use and individual characteristics of the organism, the selectivity of action against cyclooxygenase type 2 is reduced.

Absorption from the gastrointestinal tract after ingestion - 89%.
Eating does not affect absorption. Concentration in plasma is dose-dependent. The mean C max values ​​for 15 mg of Mataren ® were 1.17 μg / ml. The time to reach C max is 4-6 hours. Equilibrium concentrations are achieved after 3-5 days. The connection with plasma proteins is 99%. Passes through the histogematic barriers, penetrates into the synovial fluid. V d is low, with an average of 11 liters.
Concentration in the synovial fluid is 50% of the concentration in the plasma.
Metabolised in the liver - to inactive metabolites. It is excreted through the intestine and kidneys (approximately in equal proportions), in unchanged form - 5% of the daily dose (through the intestine). T 1/2 - 20 hours. Plasma clearance is an average of 8 ml / min (decreases in old age).

- rheumatoid arthritis;

- osteoarthrosis;

- Ankylosing spondylitis (Bechterew's disease) and other inflammatory and degenerative joint diseases accompanied by pain syndrome.


Inside, with food, 1 time / day.

With rheumatoid arthritis and Bechterew's disease (ankylosing spondylitis) at 15 mg / day, when a positive therapeutic effect is achieved, the dose can be reduced to 7.5 mg / day.

For osteoarthritis , 7.5 mg / day, if necessary, increase the dose to 15 mg / day.

The maximum daily dose is 15 mg.

The initial dose in patients with an increased risk of side effects is 7.5 mg / day.

In patients with severe renal failure who are on hemodialysis, the maximum daily dose of 7.5 mg.

With a slight or moderate decrease in kidney function (creatinine clearance more than 25 ml / min), as well as with cirrhosis in a stable clinical condition - dose adjustment is not required.


From the digestive system : more than 1% - dyspepsia, incl.
nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, constipation, flatulence, diarrhea; 0.1-1% - a transient increase in the activity of "liver" transaminases, hyperbilirubinemia, belching, esophagitis, gastroduodenal ulcer, bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract (including latent), stomatitis;less than 0.1% - perforation of the gastrointestinal tract, colitis, hepatitis, gastritis.
On the part of the organs of hematopoiesis: more than 1% - anemia;
0.1-1% change in the blood formula, incl. leukopenia, tamocytopenia.
From the skin : more than 1% - itching, skin rash;
0,1-1% - urticaria; less than 0.1% - photosensitivity, bullous eruptions, erythema multiforme, incl. Stevens-Johnson syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis.

From the side of the urinary system: 0.1-1% - hypercreatininaemia and / or increased urea in the blood serum;
less than 0.1% - acute renal failure; connection with the reception of meloxicam is not established - interstitial nephritis, albuminuria, hematuria.
From the sense organs: less than 0.1% - conjunctivitis, visual impairment, incl.
blurred vision.
Allergic reactions : less than 0.1% angioneurotic edema, anaphylactoid / anaphylactic reactions.


- hypersensitivity to any component of the drug, as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs of other groups;

- history of asthma, urticaria or acute rhinitis, provoked by acetylsalicylic acid or other NSAIDs;

- exacerbation of peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum;

severe hepatic impairment;

- severe heart failure;

- chronic renal failure in patients not undergoing hemodialysis;

- gastrointestinal, cerebrovascular or other bleeding;

- Children's age (up to 12 years), pregnancy, lactation.

The drug should be used with caution in elderly patients, in patients with an erosive-ulcerative lesion of the gastrointestinal tract in an anamnesis.


The use during pregnancy is contraindicated.

During the lactation period, when the drug is used, the question of stopping breastfeeding should be addressed.


In patients with severe renal failure who are on hemodialysis, the maximum daily dose of 7.5 mg.


The drug is contraindicated in severe hepatic insufficiency.


The drug is contraindicated for children under 12 years.


The drug should be used with caution in elderly patients.


In the event of peptic ulcers or gastrointestinal bleeding, the development of side effects from the skin and mucous membranes, the drug should be discarded.

In patients with reduced circulating blood volume and reduced glomerular filtration (dehydration, chronic heart failure, cirrhosis, nephrotic syndrome, clinically pronounced kidney disease, diuretics, dehydration after major surgery), there may be a clinically pronounced chronic renal failure that is completely reversible after withdrawal of the drug (in these patients at the beginning of treatment should monitor diuresis and renal function).

With a persistent and significant increase in transaminases and changes in other indicators of liver function, the drug should be withdrawn and control tests carried out.
In patients with an increased risk of side effects, treatment starts with a dose of 7.5 mg. In the terminal stage of chronic renal failure in patients on hemodialysis, the dose should not exceed 7.5 mg / day.
