ActionsMeloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) derived from oxicam, and acts by inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis, exerting anti-inflammatory, antiexudative, analgesic and antipyretic effects. Meloxicam reduces leukocyte infiltration in the inflamed tissue. To a minor extent it also inhibits collagen induced thrombocyte aggregation. Meloxicam also has antiendotoxic properties because it has been shown to inhibit production of thromboxane B2 induced by intravenous Escherichia coli endotoxin administration in calves and pigs.
