Mexican pill identifier

It's just small white round and says 'ultra' on one side and the other side just has a preforated line to break in half Every time I go to Mexico mi suegra gives me all these pills for anything from anti bitoics to allergies etc. I don't know what any of them are for ## Hi, Sarita! Mexico really doesn't have any strict regulatory agency for medications, so they aren't tracked, they aren't required to log imprints anywhere and etc. The best suggestion I can make is that the next time they give them to you, perhaps mark down what they say each is and what it's for….or just dispose of them, after you leave. Does anyone recognize the one that's been mentioned? ## I got a round lime green pill that says ultra on one side and the other is a line throu...
