G60

small oval with more of a pointy end on the oval, white pill with G60 on one side and 200 on the other ## I found one pill, small white oval with G60 on one side and 200 on the other. My husband has acid reflux, and it is in a container with my lactase tablets. I probaly should discard it, but I am curious as to what it is for. Thank you. ## Sorry, this isn't listed in the drug databases, so I can only assume it is something over the counter. ## I have one of these, too, and I cannot find what it might be. I don't believe it's ibuprofen, as one person said. I found it in a small unmarked bottle that also contained a 2 mg Valium, so I'm thinking it might be something similar.
