clear oblong capsule with tiny white beads

Clear oblong capsule with tiny white beads inside. there are no markings on it at all. ## I found the pill in my sons room and was just wondering what is was. ## I am sorry, if there are no markings on it, then there is no way to positively identify it. The only thing I can tell you is that it is not a legal U.S. prescription drug , as by law, they are all required to have an imprint somewhere on the tablet or capsule to enable their identification. ## yeah, i found a pill just like that in my brother's room. he was recently doing marijuana and i think that maybe he is doing other drugs too so if u have any info on it please message me. ## I just found this pill in my brothers room... we thought it may be a steroid since he's into sports... but i dont think thats the case... any...

white round pill blank on one side and only a score line on the other

I was at the gym when I found a flatish white round pill, blank on one side and blank on the other side besides a single score mark. It's about the size of a large pea. ## Hi Vendi, Because the description of this pill is so broad/vague, I think there's only so much one can do to narrow it down through research alone. On that note, here is a list of other white round pills reportedly bearing a score line on one side with no other markings: Vitamin C oral tab 500mg Vitamin B6 oral tab 50mg Niacin 100mg tab Melatonin 3mg tab Counterfeit/Alleged 'Hydrocodone' 10/325 (from Costa Rica) This might only turn out to be a small list of possibilities at that. So your best bet in my opinion may just be to have its contents analyzed by a lab and/or drug panel in order to pinpoint a ...

I have been taking simvastatin tabs for 2 months now, choslerol count is good but my trigleride level has increased from taking Vytorin 141 count to taking simvastatin now 232 ## What is the difference between simvastatin and Vytorin.my doctor change my medication from Vytorin to simvastatin 3 months ago.

Can I eat grapefruit while on Zocor?

My father in law is on a cholesterol lowering medication and is no longer allowed to eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice. I have just begun Zocor and am concerned. ## I just read that you can't drink more than a quart of juice or large amount of grapefruit. That being said, I'd ask your pharmacist. ## my father eats grapefruit, but his doctor told him not to eat it very often ## I eat 1/2 a grapefruit in the AM and take my Zocor at night. Is there a problem with doing this? ## There is an enzyme in grapefruit that can inhibit your body's ability to break down some medications, such as Zocor, which could result in you absorbing too much of the given medication. Thus, it is best to abstain from eating grapefruit, or drinking its juice, while taking Zocor. However, if your...
