1 What Piroxicam capsules are and what they are used for

Before prescribing Piroxicam your doctor will assess the benefits this medicine may give you against your risk of developing side effects. Your doctor may need to give you check-ups and will tell you how often you need to be checked, due to your taking Piroxicam.

Piroxicam belongs to a group of pain killers called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and is used to relieve some symptoms caused by osteoarthritis (arthrosis, degenerative joint disease), rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis (rheumatism of the spine), such as swelling, stiffness and joint pain. It does not cure arthritis and will help you only as long as you continue to take it. Your doctor will prescribe Piroxicam to you only when you have had unsatisfactory relief of symptoms with other NSAIDs.

2 What you need to know before you take Piroxicam capsules

Do not take Piroxicam capsules if you:

  • are allergic to piroxicam or any of the other ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
  • are allergic to aspirin or previously had a serious allergic drug reaction to piroxicam, other NSAIDs and other medications, especially serious skin reactions (regardless of severity) such as exfoliative dermatitis (intense reddening of skin, with skin peeling off in scales or layers),
  • potentially life-threatening skin rashes (Steven-Johnsons syndrome, toxic epidermal necrolysis) have been reported with the use of piroxicam, appearing initially as reddish target-like spots or circular patches often with central blisters on the trunk. Additional signs to look for include: ulcers in the mouth, throat, nose, genitals and conjunctivitis (red and swollen eyes). These potentially life-threatening skin rashes are often accompanied by flu-like symptoms. The rash may progress to widespread blistering or peeling of the skin. The highest risk for occurrence of serious skin reactions is within the first weeks of treatment. If you have developed Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis with the use of Piroxicam, you must not be re-started on Piroxicam at any time. If you develop a rash or these skin symptoms, seek immediate advice from a doctor and tell them that you are taking this medicine.
  • have ever experienced symptoms of swelling of face or hands (angioneurotic oedema), asthma, hayfever, swelling of nasal passage (nasal polyps) or hives with aspirin or NSAIDs.
  • have a peptic ulcer (ulcer in your stomach or duodenum) or bleeding in your stomach, or have had two or more episodes of peptic ulcers, stomach bleeding or perforation.
  • have or have had a history of gastrointestinal disorders (inflammation of the stomach or intestines) that predispose to bleeding disorders such as ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, gastrointestinal cancers, diverticulitis (inflamed or infected pouches/pockets in the colon).
  • are taking other NSAIDs, including COX-2 selective NSAIDs and aspirin, a substance presents in many medicines used to relieve pain and lower fever.
  • are taking anticoagulants, such as warfarin, to prevent blood clots.
  • suffer from severe heart failure.

If any of these applies to you, you should not be given piroxicam. Tell your doctor immediately.
