Round white pill with S on one side and 2 on the other

Can someone help me identify a small round white pill with a capital S on one side that is scored with a tiny 2 on the other side? ## Hello, Jane! How are you? The closest tablet I've been able to find has an S on one side and a 2 on the other, but they are both the same size. It is manufactured by Sun Pharma and contains 2mgs of Eszopiclone, which is used for the short treatment of insomnia. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, sleep actions, hallucinations, and next day hangover-like effects. How small is the 2 on the tablet in question? Is there a chance it might be a Z, or a 5? ## Definitely a 2, it makes sense the med is what you say. Thanks so much! I am frustrated with the assistant living place my friends are in when the a...

small oval blue pill s1

It is an oval blue pill with S 1 on one side. Nothing on the other. Need to know what it is ASAP! ## I found the description of a round blue pill made by Sun Pharma that's imprinted with S 1. It's identified as a 1mg Eszopiclone tablet; a nonbenzodiazepine hypnotic agent used for treating insomnia. Unfortunately there aren't any photographs of it online to help verify imprint placement or pill shape ('round' can sometimes be a vague way of saying oval), but hopefully this can at least serve as a reference for further search efforts. Does anyone else here recognize this as being something different? ## It is a small oblong blue caplet with one side blank and the other side has S 1 imprinted on it. ## Thank you. Yes you all were very helpful I appreciate your help

side effects of eszopiclone manufactured by roxane

Are the side effects more common with the manufacturer Roxane versus Teva for the drug eszopiclone? ## No, it is still the same medication, so the side effect expectation is the same. The FDA lists them as possibly including nausea, drowsiness, funny taste in mouth, hallucinations, and sleep actions. Is there anything else I can help with?

small dark blue round pill

What is this pill? Small round dark blue with a 3 on one side and S on the other side ## @Unsure, I've yet to come across an actual image of this pill, but from what I could gather the description matches that of a 3mg Eszopiclone tablet manufactured by Sun Pharma. This particular pill is also described as being round, blue, with an S on one side and 3 on the other. Eszopiclone is a hypnotic agent used for treating insomnia. According to NIH.gov, it works by slowing down brain activity in order to promote sleep. I hope this helps!

I found a prescription bottle of small blue round pills with Z E and 3 on one side and on the other a symbol that looks kind of like the ON button on a TV remote!
