I have found the same pill. I am pretty familiar with most pills. My first impression was prilosec or Daron because of shape or color. Purplish with ~P~ imprinted on one side. Just like that. Squiggly line P then squiggly line. I then noticed it had a coating like a time release on an oxycontin or something like that. Never seen it before. Can't find a pic or any information on it. Any help would be helpful. Found in kids room.

I found a pill as well like that and I am trying to identify and have yet to be successful. The squiggly lines are ON the pill. It does NOT have an underscore. It looks just like this:

The purple pill that pools lile this ~p~ is a pamprin pill. Not sure of the mg.... I just take 2 for my cramps. Pamprin pills can come in white too, just depends which box ya buy. If your kid is a female it makes perfect sense that she had this pill to help her with her period cramps. Now maybe you should trust your daughter and stop snooping around in her room. It's extremely invasive, and you will loose your relationship with your daughter if she finds out... over a Tylenol type pill.

You are a parent to your daughter not her friend. You will not lose your daughter or turn her away from you. My child is 19 and she understood that I was always looking out for her best interest. I read text messages, had passwords to all her online social media accounts and would go into them whenever I felt the need. Again, stay strong and be a parent not a friend.

Lynn, don't even take that response to heart. You're doing a great job keep it up. And should your daughter get mad at you then that's okay, she'll get over it and appreciate you more because you cared enough to check as she gets older and is still alive.

You would not make a great mom. Any parent not concerned if they found a pill is why we have a drug epidemic and children being raised by peers vs parents.
