Important Safety InformationSee More

NSAID medicines like MOBIC may increase the chance of a heart attack or stroke that can lead to death. This chance increases in people who have heart disease or who use NSAIDs for a longer time. MOBIC should never be used right before or after a heart surgery called a "coronary artery bypass graft (CABG)." NSAID medicines can cause ulcers and bleeding in the stomach and intestines at any time during treatment that can cause death. The chance of getting an ulcer or bleeding increases if you are taking certain other medicines such as corticosteroids or anticoagulants, if you smoke or drink alcohol, if you are older, or are in poor health.
Do not take MOBIC if you had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergic reaction with aspirin or any other NSAID medicine.
Tell your doctor or healthcare provider about all your medical conditions, and all the medicines you take. Some medicines should not be taken with MOBIC.
Mobic should not be taken in late pregnancy. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Life threatening allergic reactions can occur with MOBIC. Get help right away if you've had swelling of the face or throat or trouble breathing.
MOBIC should be used exactly as prescribed at the lowest dose possible and for the shortest time needed.
Possible serious side effects of MOBIC include heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, and kidney problems. Other side effects can include stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, gas and nausea.
