    Mobic yes, NSAID's you have to watch out for GI problems, but this one is supposed to not be as harsh as one's like ibuprofen & aspirin and such. I don't know, I did fine on it while I was taking doxycycline with it, but after they took it from me because of my stomach ulcer, it never worked worth a snot again. It didn't cause the ulcer though, they told me Ibuprofen caused it. I didn't really have side effects, but I don't think my tummy liked the medication too well.

      Others with IC find that NSAIDS irritate their bladder but I have been able to take them without issue, including the one that you mention.
