White Pill 303 325

White capslue Pill 303 325 hour glass ## Hi, Kim! Where did you find it? The hourglass logo is used by Ivax Pharmaceuticals, but I am not finding a listing for this anywhere, so I'm wondering if it may be an older medication that is no longer being manufactured. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? I'll keep looking and post back when I have more information for you. ## I believe this capsule 303 325 with what looks like an hour glass is Quinine Sulfate.
