Small White Oblong Pill M L On One Side And 12 Other

Small, dainty football shaped white pill. It is vertically scored through the center and has a capital M on one side of the score and a capital L on the other. The other side of the pill has the number 12. I believe it may be a thyroid pill such as a generic cytamel but cannot find it on line. ## Yes, it is a tablet that's used to treat thyroid disorders. To be specific, it contains 25mcgs of Liothyronine, which is a generic for Cytomel, just as you suspected. Learn more Liothyronine details here. Where did you find it?
