Hi Veronica - 8mg/2mg means that the drug has two main active ingredients. And they are 8mg and 2mg per dose respectively. May I ask what you were prescribed? It sounds like Suboxone if I had to guess. For example, a single dose of Suboxone commonly contains 8 mg of Buprenorphine with 2 mg of Naloxone. I hope that helps and best wishes!

Please stop buying medication off the street. It ruins it for people who actually need these meds. If you got this from a doctor and pharmacy you would have known the answer to this question, or you could have called your doctor. This is illegal and morally wrong.

No one knows for certain that this was a "street purchased" drug. Maybe this person got away from the pharmacy before the information she needed became apparent. She could have called the Doctor's Office and got an explanation (maybe) and, if it is a legally manufactured pill HERE IN THE UNITED STATES, there are a number of internet sites that will identify almost any pill manufactured.
