Should I Take This Medication?

Should I Take This Medication?

I currently take Colpidogrel, Carvedilol Rosuvastatin, Famotidine and Vitamin D3 for heart, blood pressure and acid reflux. Orthopedic doctor just prescribed Meloxicam for arthritis but I read there can be an interaction with the Colpidogrel and the Meloxicam. My mobility is limited because of the arthritis in my hip....which the Meloxicam would help. I would only need to take it for two weeks. Should I take it?
