White pill E7

I found 2 pills. They are pretty small. It looks like it can be cut into 2 pieces. All it says on it is E7. ## What shape is your pill?

I hope this helps! ## From pictures I have found online it says its an oxycodone or something like that ## I found a small round pill that looks like a fancy E 7 that looks like it could be cut in half any idea what it is?
