Pill Identification, Orange Capsule Shaped Pill, Marked N500, Canadian Made.

cagedtiger Says:

Another pill that I'm trying to ID is a bright orange capsule/caplet shaped pill. The only markings on it are N500 on one side and nothing on the other.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hello again,

The closest match I've been able to find in regards to this pill is Naproxen (500 mg); which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicine (NSAID) used to treat fever and pain, including pain caused by arthritis, gout, menstrual cramps, tendinitis, headache, backache, and toothache.

Manufacturer: Teva Canada (Novopharm)

It is a greyish colored capsule shape pill with the imprint N|500.

You can learn more about this drug on the page for Naproxen Details

I hope this helps!

Thank you so much for trying Jenna! I think I'm going to take these to a pharmacist and ask what they are. These pills are orange, not gray so I don't know if they're the same... Thanks tho!

An orange tablet with N500 on one side and nothing on other side is likely 500mg TEVA-CEPHALEXIN (Cephalexin Monohydrate); an antibiotic.

Yes that sounds about right. I got them recently and was wondering if it was the real medication since it is little bit scented.
