oval orange pill no imprint
2 Replies RSS
Its oblong light orange no imprints or markings on it....?? ## Hi Joseph, I don't know if this is what you have, but CVS reportedly carries a prenatal multivitamin that fits the description of a light orange oval shaped tablet with no imprints or markings. The only problem is, there may be lots of different orange oval tablets with no markings that aren't necessarily being accounted for online (i.e. dietary supplements, pre/post workout pills, foreign pills, counterfeits, illicit drugs, etc). This means that in order to separate yours from the rest of the crowd, you may have to look into getting its contents analyzed by a lab for verification. Does anyone else recognize this as potentially being something other than a multivitamin? ## Ciproks 500 Ciprofloxacin Hydrochloride manu...

will this cause bad stomach pain. ## This tablet contains 500mgs of Ciprofloxacin, which is an antibiotic, so it shouldn't cause severe stomach pain. However, it may cause some nausea as a side effect, along with dizziness, diarrhea and non-allergic skin rash. Learn more Ciprofloxacin details here. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Cipri caused me to have severe stomach pain and nausea. Every time I took a pill, I would have to lie down immediately, sometimes it could be in the kitchen floor because I couldn't make it to the couch.

was treated for flu but not any better in three days ## That is probably because the Flu is caused by a virus, not a bacterial infection and the Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic that can only help treat bacterial infections.
