Drug Mode of Action ::  

Piroxicam is a NSAID, belonging to the oxicam group. It inhibits prostaglandin synthesis, reduces fever by acting on the heat-regulating center of the hypothalamus, inhibits platelet-aggregating substance thromboxane A2 and reduces pain receptor sensitivity. It also exerts anti-inflammatory effect by lysosomal stabilisation, kinin and leukotriene production, alteration of chemotactic factors and neutrophil activation inhibition.

Drug Interactions ::

Increased risk of GI bleeding w/ anti-platelets and SSRIs. May exacerbate cardiac failure, reduce GFR and increase plasma glycoside levels. Increased risk of nephrotoxicity w/ ciclosporin and tacrolimus. Increased absorption w/ cimetidine. Increased risk of GI ulceration w/ corticosteroids. May interfere w/ the natriuretic action of diuretics. May displace other highly protein-bound drugs. May increase steady state plasma lithium levels. May antagonise the effect of antihypertensives. May reduce the excretion of methotrexate, leading to acute toxicity. Increased risk of convulsions w/ quinolones. May interfere w/ mifepristone-mediated termination of pregnancy. Potentially Fatal: May enhance the effect of anticoagulants (e.g. warfarin). Increased risk of serious GI events w/ aspirin and other NSAIDs.
