Round green pill L 10

Trying to identify a small round light green pill with L | 10 on one side and no markings on the back of the pill. ## Based on my research, a round green film-coated tablet imprinted with L over 10 (separated by a score line) on one side and blank on the back, reportedly contains 10mgs of Xylac (Loxapine succinate); an antipsychotic medication used for schizophrenia.

Pill Identification, Canadian Made By Pharmascience, Orange pill.

This pill is an orange/peach color and is round in shape. It has the P with a circle behind it engraved in one side, which is the Pharmascience logo.
