Orange with white speckles RP 122

I found a pill in my daughters backpack I can't find ANYTHING on? Before I freak can someone please help me ID it? It's a light orange almost peach color with white speckles. The only imprint is RP122. I've been searching for hours and can't find anything? She's normally a good kid but a classmate recently OD'ed on Oxycotin and we are worried ## Yea I don't know what it is either I recently found a bag of the same pills in my sisters sock drawer ## I must admit to being as stumped and as curious as both of you.

Whipple surgery done 2015,prob w diarrhea,given citrucel is this a good source to take to correct diarrhea in this case ## Hello, Sharon! How are you?

oval orange peach faded pill CIT

My roommate and I found a bag of pills on our other roommate's floor and we were curious about what they are... One is orange-peach in color and oblong in shape and has CIT on one side. The other is a small oval that is grey on one side and red on the other. P10 is on the grey side. Any information would be lovely. Many thanks, Kristen Toast. ## The faded looking orangish pill with CIT on it is a Citrucel Fiber tablet, meant to ensure someone gets enough fiber in a day and increase the regularity of bowel movements. The one marked P10 is a laxative tablet that contains 100mgs of Docusate Sodium. Are there any comments or questions? ## Congratulations on invading your roommates privacy, thinking they're a drug addict, when they have low fiber. Pathetic.
