What is a round white pill with 7.5 on one side and nothing on the other side

We were unable to find a white pill, but we found one that is a very pale yellow and almost looks white, which is what we think you have (see the photo below).

A round yellow pill with the imprint 7.5 on the front is 7.5mg of Meloxicam (made by Lupin Pharmaceuticals Inc).

Meloxicam is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory agent that is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, tendonitis, inflammatory conditions, fibromyalgia, and osteoarthritis, among other illnesses.

There is a low risk of abuse with this drug.

This prescription-only medication may pose a risk to an unborn fetus, and should be used only under a doctor's supervision.

WebMD offers a Tip Sheet for Ulcers and Pain Relievers, warning that taking pain relief drugs if you have an ulcer can worsen your symptoms.

News Medical is reporting that when it comes to osteoarthritis treatments, patients who received meloxicam 5 mg and 10 mg, reported significantly greater pain relief over 12 weeks compared with the placebo control group.
