hi estelows,
without knowing diagnosis and popping pill continuously without advice is wrong.
most common cause of back pain in 62 yr woman is osteoporosis , also there are few more reasons for chronic back pain i.e. spondylosis etc. for this you need meet your orthopedic surgeon.

Thanks for writing to us.
The color of the tablet does not affect the active ingredients or the effectiveness of the medicine. Since you cannot find the yellow tablet, it is best to get some other pain killer prescribed from your physician after a proper examination which is available.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
