      How it works

      Piroxicam is an NSAID and, as such, is a non-selective COX inhibitor possessing both analgesic and antipyretic properties. It works by preventing the production of endogenous prostaglandins. These prostaglandins are responsible for the induction of pain.

      Precaution

      Piroxicam should be used with caution in patients with asthma because bronchial smooth muscle spasm may be aggravated by prostaglandin inhibition.

      Feldene Capsules Warnings

      Warning 1

      NSAIDs inhibit the synthesis of renal prostaglandin which plays a supportive role in the maintenance of renal perfusion in patients whose renal blood flow and blood volume are decreased.

      Warning 2

      Serious gastrointestinal toxicity such as bleeding, ulceration and perforation can occur anytime with or without warning symptoms, in patients treated chronically with NSAID therapy. Piroxicam must be used under strict medical control in patients with a medical history of disturbances in the upper gastrointestinal tract.

      Warning 3

      As with other NSAIDs, piroxicam should be given under close supervision to patients with hypertension as the antihypertensive effect of thiazide diuretics and -blocking agents is antagonized by NSAIDs.
