This pill, round, yellow, and marked L 535 is nothing more than an Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablet, a low dose usually used daily by those with heart or blood clot problems, so 81mgs. ## I double checked additional databases, including one that I pay to subcribe to monthly, just to make sure and they all list this as the same thing, Aspirin. ## Thank you, I take a aspirin everday...

1 tablet po daily ## Do you mean the term Diuretic? On an average day only one or two quarts of urine is produced. Often called water pills, diuretics work in the kidneys to increase the elimination of water and electrolytes, thereby causing more urine to form.
