I know you should let your body get used to medicine, but I had a very violent reaction to Mobic last year. My kidneys were shutting down. I'm really afraid to continue it any further. I plan on calling my Doctor in the AM since this is ... Show Full Comment

    With minimal central vision remaining, I'm legally blind. Loss of vision was sudden. Beware.

    My rheumatologist put me on this drug about a year ago and I haven't had any side effects. My flares are much less frequent and don't last more than a day or 2, and I hurt a lot less than I did.
