Piroxicam (Feldene) is the prototypical oxicam deriva-tive, with analgesic, antipyretic, and antiinflammatory properties. Its long half-life (45 hours) favors compli-ance, since only one dose per day is given. Side effects are similar to those encountered with other NSAIDs: gastric disturbances, tinnitus, and headache. Piroxicam is indicated for inflammatory and rheumatoid conditions.
