Pink oblong pill with 448 and a logo

It's a pink oblong pill with 448 on it and some type of logo next to the #'s. No other letters or numbers on it, what other details are needed? Is it a muscle relaxer? ## Is the marking possibly a stylized E with the 448? If so, it is manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, and they list it as containing 800mgs of Metaxalone, which is a muscle relaxant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, and dry mouth.
