-  Other NSAIDs, diuretics, anticoagulants, aminoglycoside antibiotics and substances with high protein binding may compete for binding and thus lead to toxic effects. Meloxivet 0.5% Inj. must not be administered in conjunction with other NSAIDs or glucocorticosteroids.

-  Concurrent administration of potential nephrotoxic drugs should be avoided.
