Hi Barbara,

Usually if a medication is time-released it will have one of the following abbreviations at the end of the drug name: XL, ER, SR, or perhaps some other similar notation. From my experience, if a label doesn't actually specify that it's time released in such a way, then it would probably be safe to assume that it's not.

However, if you happen to know what the imprint/markings are on your tablet, I'd be happy to verify this for you.

I hope this helps!

My apologies for the late reply, as I just received notification of recent activity on this thread. I'm sure you've already confirmed this by now, but for any other readers, IG 239 is confirmed to be a 10mg Amlodipine besylate tablet, made by InvaGen Pharma. And this particular pill is NOT time released.


The abbreviation "BES" (after Amlodipine) stands for "besylate", which from what I could gather, appears to be a type of pharmaceutical salt formation that helps aid in the absorption of the medication.

I have been given a blood pressure pill white round with imprint LU other side H13 and it caused me to be up and moving around and could not sleep and was falling contiously and could not go to sleep. Why would a blood pressure pill cause such and affect. I got my head several times on time floor and I hit my ear busted the top and am still dizzy 24 hours later. Please inform me on what I need to do. I was also prescribed Balclocfen 20 mg as a muscle relaxer and tramadol 50 mg by PBR Sam Simpson. I took one Balofen 20 mg. I took two which ison my bottle instructing me to take one - two on my bottle. Feeling light head right now and bells ring in my ear. I am 53. Please inform me as to what I need to do asap.
