Other conditions:   none

Reported Results
Benefits:   greatly diminished arthritis pain, increased joint flexibility.
Side effects:   small nicks / scratches bled more easily
Comments:   I started taking 10mg piroxicam about 12 or 13 years ago for arthitis pain in my hands with great results. Subsequently developed arthritis in both knees and have stayed on same dosage with good relief of symptoms. Dosage was increased to 20mg after a tibial plateau fracture of a severely arthritic knee and I stayed at that dosage for about two years. Have recently lost 20+ pounds and returned to the 10mg dosage with only slight decrease in relief of discomfort.
