    I am very sorry to hear about your little girl. Piroxicam can cause constipation; diarrhea; dizziness; gas; headache; heartburn; nausea; stomach upset. You would probably be able to see your GP faster than the consultant unless you can get the consultant to call you.

    I'm not sure my gp says because it's a hossie prescribed for a minor to go back to them but we've been assigned a wonderful rhuemy nurse who can deal with things and if not she contacts her consultant who then ends up ringing us up anyway.
