Tenoxicam is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It is manufactured by Roche under the tradename Mobiflex. It is available in the  United Kingdom as a prescription-only drug. Tenoxicam belongs to the class of medications known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). It is used to relieve inflammation, swelling, stiffness, and pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis (a type of arthritis involving the spine), tendinitis (inflammation of a tendon), bursitis (inflammation of a bursa, a fluid-filled sac located around joints and near the bones), and periarthritis of the shoulders or hips (inflammation of tissues surrounding these joints).
