round white pill with 20 on one side amd blank on other side
1 Reply RSS
Found one white round pill 20 on one side and blank on the other ## Hi marie, From what I've researched, a manufacturer by the name of Accord Healthcare reportedly makes a round white pill with "20" on one side and a score line on the other (but no additional numbers). This particular pill contains 20mg of Escitalopram, used for treating depression and anxiety disorders. I know you mentioned that the opposite side of the pill was blank, but if you're just referring to there being no other numbers, I'd question whether a score line is still a possibility? Hope this helps!
