White pill E7

I found 2 pills. They are pretty small. It looks like it can be cut into 2 pieces. All it says on it is E7. ## What shape is your pill? I located a white round pill with E | 7 on one side and blank on the other, to be identified as Ethambutol hydrochloride (400mg); marketed for use in treating tuberculosis.
