small white round pill as a roxy 30 but thicker with line on one side no other markings
6 Replies RSS
white pill, small as a roxy 15 or 30 but its twice as thick and is very slightly raised on the sides. Has a line across the middle on one side and nothing else on it. Is this a steroid? ## Hello, Randal! How are you? If there are no markings, it's rather difficult to be certain of what it contains. We know it's not a U.S. prescription medication, since they are all required to have markings to enable their identification, but it could be any one of a large number of over the counter products or a medication obtained from a foreign source. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. Does anyone recognize this? ## I have the same issue here with a pill, have you found out what it may be? ## I have a white pill its supposed to be a oxycodone 30 mg but it i...

small white round blank pill

I found some small white round thick pills in my nephew’s room. There are no markings, just blank on one side with a scored edge, and the other side has a single score line on it. It is 3/16 inch in diameter, and about 1/8 inch in height. There were in a bogus pharmacy bottle labeled Lorazepam 2 Mg. Can anyone help my identify what this pill may really be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ## sounds like lorazepam, i was prescribed this medication for antianxiety purposes. its not as powerful, but similiar to xanax, which i have also been prescribed. ## If you have any questions about what the pill is, you can bring it to a pharmacy where the have a series of books that show a pic of each pill with a description of it's uses. It is getting a little scary out there bc peop...

lorazepam side effects at high dosages
1 Reply RSS
My lorazepam was just inceased to 8mg. Can the recent increase cause side effects such as severe back pain and pain under the right breast in a person who has osteroporoseis who previously had minor side effects and is consuming adequate calcium ## Hello, Lindamann! How are you? Yes, it has been known to cause such symptoms, as side effects, in some people that take it, as listed by the FDA. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, irritability and headache. It also carries the risk of being habit forming. It is best, however, to have it checked out by your doctor, to be sure. Is there anything else I can help with?

this is the best way i can describe what the pills looks like, its a very small tiny white pill with the letterr GG on one side and on the same side below, it says the numbers 92, on the other side it just has the line across it , I hope you can help me cause I need to know, if this pill can be harmful and I want to know what it is prescribed for, please help, I do not have a clue about the name or manufacturer, of this product, I am going nuts I have been trying for hours online trying to find an answer, , thankyou for you support denise ## Denise, Based on the description you provided GG 92, it sounds like a 1 mg Lorazepam. Not exactly the same as a Xanax, but it is used for a similar reason (anti-anxiety). The pill you are describing is actually a generic for Ativan. You can even see...

LOOKING FOR LORAZEPAM THAT IS EXACTLY LIKE WATSON BRAND
15 Replies RSS
I've been taking Watson Pharmaceuticals Lorazepam and it worked great. Apparently, Actavis just took over Watson, and Watson no longer exists. I'm looking for another bran of Lorazepam that has the same Active & Inactive ingredients as the Watson brand, however, I can't locate the info on line and my pharmacy won't help me. Does anyone know what other manufacturer carries Lorazepam that is exactly the same as the Watson brand. Actavis and Sandoz manufacturer's Lorazepam does not work. ## Well, you're pharmacy won't help, because if the active ingredient is the same, they are considered the same. The inactive ingredients are called such for a reason, they don't affect the drug. How long have you been taking your current dose? It is possible that you...
