In brief: Yes

typically, that is a low dose and safe for daily use.
You should be monitored by your pcp and kidney function checked every so often.

That is actually the recommended maximum daily dose of meloxicam.

I agree with Dr. Ronald Krauser. I would start with 7.5mg daily and move to 15 maximum if needed.
