round white pill with arrow engraved on both sides

I found this medication on the apartment floor while visiting my Dad. Just want to if it's an over the counter med or a prescription pain medication? ## Hello Lisa, Fortunately for you I can say that this medication is very unlikely prescription medication as the FDA requires that it have an identifiable imprint. Looking around I was able to find an small white round Anacin pill that has a very wide arrow on both sides. Anacin is an over the counter oral pill that is used to treat pain and can be purchased at most convenience stores. Below is an image I sourced from somewhere. Is this the pill you are referring to?

Anacin side effects

I have taken Anacin for 20 plus years due to my chronic knee pain. I have tried everything out there but can honestly say Anacin works the best for me. I thought it was the aspirin-caffeine combination, but for some reason that ain't all of it. I've tried other aspirin-caffeine tablets by other companies, like Bayer back and body, and even though it is higher in aspirin content it just doesn't work as well as Anacin for me. One very important thing one should know is (and I discovered this the hard way) too much caffeine for too long a time affects your heart's natural pacemaker. It makes your heart beat too slowly. You'll know this when you just don't feel right but can't put a finger on it. Check your heartbeat. Mine would go down to 50 bpm. For an out of s...

White Pill Arrow On It

Round circle white pill, had a V on the same side as 9 and 2 arrows or was it 911. Also don't remember if anything was on the back. ## From what I've read, a round white pill with a large arrow logo is Anacin (400 mg aspirin + 32 mg caffeine). However if you don't know what other markings are on the pill besides a V and some arrows, there's little chance of finding an definitive ID for it. Is the "V" in cursive/italic writing? If so, it's usually accompanied by a four digit number on the same side "OR" on back of the pill (often times with a score line as well). Example: V 20 91 V 21 09 V 3912 To my understanding, Vintage Pharmaceuticals and Qualitest Pharmaceuticals are the only manufacturers who use this particular "V" logo. I'd consider...

Round White Pill Indented Christmas Tree

Round white pill with Christmas tree imprint on both sides ## I think there's a chance that what you're looking at my be an A logo and that you have some Anacin tablets.
