I have been taking meloxicam 15 mg once per day for RA for more than six years now. I would like to know whether it is safe to use the drug for such a long duration?

C158 white round pill?

I have a small round white pill. One side is stamped with C, the other 158. The only pills I can ID like this say that they are yellow, but this is white. Can anyone identify it for me please? ## Hi mb ... Are you sure that your tablet isn't just a really light yellow? It is most likely Meloxicam 7.5 mg from Cipla (NDC 69097-158). DailyMed describes this pill as "yellow coloured, round, biconvex tablets, debossed with '158' on one side and 'C' on the other". They also say that "Meloxicam is a pale yellow solid" - so to me that could mean there's a chance it could almost appear white under certain lighting. Plus there aren't any coloring agents listed under the inactive ingredients. The inactive ingredients listed on the NDC page are: - Colloid...
