red oval gel pill with 512

The pill I found is 2 in a pack and they are pretty big pills. They are gel, red, oval looking and say 512 on one side... You can tell it's some type of allergy or sinus medication that you can buy over the counter. ## Hi Angie, I located an oval orange colored gel (liquid-filled) pill marked with "512", that reportedly contains a combination of Acetaminophen (325mg) + Dextromethorphan (10mg) + Phenylephrine hydrochloride (5 mg), used for treating upper respiratory conditions such as colds, coughing and/or allergy symptoms. For verification, the pill itself is said to be manufactured by McKesson Drug Company and carries a National Drug Code of 70677-0011. I hope this helps! ## Mine is red with the same 512 but not sure if it is that same one.

doctors that prescribe pain meds in Fort Smith, AR

I’ve been on and off pain meds for many years. I just moved to Fort Smith, Ar and need a doctor who will prescribe me pain meds without acetaminophen. Ones like morphine, OxyContin, or dilaudid. I know with the opioid epidemic doctors are more reluctant than ever to prescribe these drugs, but I need them and don’t want to “doctor shop”. Any recommendations please?

large oval pill light green with score line on one side white with 254 on the other

Could someone please identify this pill? Large oval pill light green with score line on one side white with 254 on the other. ## I believe this is an OTC generic version of the muscle relaxer Robaxacet. ## Hello, Rackleff! How are you? I haven't been able to find a listing for this in any of the databases that I've checked, which makes me suspect that it's most likely an over the counter product of some type. It could be an over the counter Robaxacet as Margaret stated. (Thank you, Margaret!) But I can't confirm that, since it is an over the counter product. It is available in Canada, not the U.S. and contains Acetaminophen with the muscle relaxant Methocarbamol. Learn more Acetaminophen details here. Learn more Methocarbamol details here. Can anyone confirm this? ## ALG...
