Round brown/orange pill with 57 on one side & blank on other

Brownish orange round pills with the number 57 on one side the other is blank can't find it anywhere hope you can ## Hi Sonja, Based on the description provided, I located a round brown pill with "57" on one side and blank on the other to be a 200mg Motrin (Ibuprofen) tablet. (NDC 30142-235, among others) This is an OTC non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used for treating fever and mild to severe pain. Apparently it's distributed by many different companies. I hope this helps! ## I found a reddish brown pill with 57 on one side and blank on the other. Any suggestions? ## Does it make you sleep? ## Ibuprofen is not specifically indicated as a sleep aid, it's a pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. However, if pain is keeping you up for instance, i might help to relie...

pills found from 1960

Dapricil was used for mentstural cramps in the 1960’s. Would like to know information about he content of the drug. It was a very long time ago. I remember feeling high when taking it and didn’t do much for the pain. Then dapricil was replaced by another similar pill the name was edricil. Not sure of the spelling. Thank You ## I used this drug when I got bad cramps during my cycle! Did not misuse it! When I took this drug I actually functioned and concentrated so much better! Was able to get chores done and worked more efficiently! Was wondering what it was made of? ## Funny how we can remember this medication It never helped with my severe cramps but it was a mood lifter. Really useless. When Motrin Became available my prescription, that was the answer for me.

Pill 3977

Found a round white pill made by Rugby with the numbers 3977 on it. Trying to figure out what it was for. ## Was it found in the U.S. or elsewhere? I am not finding a pill with 3977 on it in any of the U.S. prescription drug databases. Does it also say Rugby on it? There is a good possibility that it is something available over the counter or a foreign medication. Does anyone else recognize this tablet? ## Pill clearly says RUGBY on it on one side. Numbers 3977 on the other side. Checked PDR's as far back as the 80's but no listing. Why I posted. thanks for any help. ## I found the same pill and had the same question. ## I have same pill - was in an envelope labeled Motrin- from years ago when Motrin was only available via prescription- 1980s or early 90s. I just took it for mus...

Endometrial Biopsy Pain Reducing Meds

My Obgyn claimed the endometrial biopsy I'll receive will only be "slightly uncomfortable" and take motrin. 1 I cannot take NSAIDs at all. I have IBS and it'll only make my stomach hurt. That'll be an added issue as my anxiety levels are getting worse as this biopsy approaches. Doing in office I cannot be put under say she did during a D&C which I know someone had her biopsy performed during the D n C. The problems I'm having are identical to hers where my periods are still regular (come monthly) except I began bleeding so heavily that it became unbearable. First day I cannot even walk around.

does motrin have codeine it

I need to know if motrin 800 has codeine in it? I need to take medicine but am allergic to codeine. ## The FDA lists Motrin 800 as containing 800mgs of Ibuprofen, it is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. Its typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?

Small, round tan/light brown pill, has 001 on one side and the other side is blank

I came across a strange pill and I've been trying to figure out what it is for an hour now. It's small, about the size of a Motrin. It's colour is tan-ish / very light brown. One side is completely smooth with no imprints but the other side has a split and 001 on it. I'm positive it's 001 and not 100 because the 1 has the little "tophat". If anyone can tell me what this is that'd be great. ## dark round pill with p97 dARK BROWN LINE ONSAME SIDE NOTHING ONN OTHER

norco 5/325 and motrin - can I take it together?

I am taking norco 5-325 for back pain, it's BAD. My RX says 1 pill every 8 hrs. I took one 4 hours ago, but not a dent in the pain. Can I take another one? Also, can I supplement with two Motrin? ## You should not take more than your doctor has prescribed, you should follow their dosing instructions, including for the use of Motrin. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and constipation. Are you on any other medications?

oblong orange pill mot

Found an orange oblong pill that has "mot" on it. Kind of odd to be Motrin 1b as it is usually stamped on the pill. ## Motrin was the first thing that came to my mind as well. But even if it might not be "Motrin Ib" I'd still speculate as to whether it's another form of Motrin, such as this one from CVS (but without the full imprint intact depending on its condition?): Motrin.jpg How do the letters "mot" appear on your tablet? -Are they inked on or embedded? Sometimes various dollar stores also have their own unique brand of OTC meds that bear different markings than what you might find at general pharmacies. Just something else to consider I suppose. Wish I could've been of more help!
