Round White Pill Indented Christmas Tree
Round white pill with Christmas tree imprint on both sides ## I think there's a chance that what you're looking at my be an A logo and that you have some Anacin tablets. Is the tree basically a triangle that's sitting on a slightly curved base? If so, then that's what they probably are. Anacin is an over the counter pain reliever that contains Aspirin and Caffeine.
