round brown/peach pill with 13 printed in black
1 Reply RSS
Anyone? Found this in the kitchen cupboard. Its small, round, brownish rusty colored with a 13 printed in black on one side. Blank on the other side. ## @blah, Based on your description the closest thing I'm finding is a 50MG Amitriptyline hydrochloride tablet, used for treating depression, anxiety, as well as a number of other conditions. Unfortunately I haven't come across any photos of the pill online, so I'm unable to verfity the color of the imprint/ink being used. However it's description reports a round brown pill that has " I3 " marked on one side and is blank on the other side. Additionally, the manufacturer is listed as Accord Healthcare. Does this sound like it could be a possible match?
