White round tablet with RP 108 on one side

So I was in my boyfriends closet last week and I found these pills in one of his bags and the only imprint they have on them says RP 108 on one side. And the other side has nothing on it not even a line. There white and round tablet. I can’t find them anywhere online. If anyone knows or has an idea of what they are please let me know! Thank you. ## Are you sure it's 108 and not 103? The closest match I could find is RP 103 which is an OTC ultra-strength antacid; calcium carbonate 1000mg. NDC: 49035-0101 If it is RP 108 there is not listed information for such a pill.

Advice on taking Magnesium, Omega 3, Calcium and Iron...?

Hi, I'm 17 and I've just started taking Magnesium, Calcium, Omega-3 fish oil and Iron supplements for anxiety/stress, to improve mood, energy and overall health. I've done a bit of research on these but have questions about when and how to take them and want to make sure it's safe to take these everyday until I feel better. Also I would like to know if anyone has any advice and experience on taking one or more of these. I especially want to take magnesium & omega 3 but I think that calcium and iron will also be helpful. I am not deficient in iron or calcium but I know that I have slightly low levels but doctor said it wouldn't affect me but I would take them anyway. The calcium I am taking - contains calcium carbonate 1500mg and vitamin D3. Twice a day, to be taken
