Piroxicam is a painkiller that is part of the group of drugs known as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Piroxicam not only relieves pain, but also has a fever-reducing and anti-inflammatory effect. Peloxicam is prescribed for, amongst other things, arthrosis, rheumatism and Bechterew’s disease.

Piroxicam and the benefit of DNA analysis

The rate at which piroxicam is processed within your body varies from one individual to another. This means that the efficacy and side effects of piroxicam can be predicted to some extent on the basis of your genes. Preventive DNA analysis can therefore be an important tool in optimising your medication.
