oblong pill ad 01

What is it it plain blue on other side no marking ## Yes. Same problem. Oblong blue pill AD01 on one side and nothing on the other. Plain blue on back. No markings or scoring. ## It looks like several other people here are also trying to identify this same blue oblong pill in the following discussion thread: Discuss/blue-oblong-pill-ad-01-280640.htm I've yet to find any specific details as to what it might be. No one else has seemed to have had any success either. Having said this, I think it could be worth while taking the pill into a local pharmacy to see if they have any particular way of determining its contents. Perhaps even a lab analysis or drug panel kit could also lend us some clues in the event that a controlled substance is present; so that may be something to look into a...

what kind of pill is this with the L571 and its light blue oval

I found this oval shaped sky blue pill with L571 on one side nothing on the other what is this pill please? ## Hello, Lildubbie! How are you? Unfortunately, I've not been able to find an identification for this tablet, but what I can tell you is that the reason is most likely due to the fact that it is an over the counter product. I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. If I had to guess, based on the shape and color, I'd take a stab at it being a 220mg Naproxen tablet, there are many that match this description. The FDA lists it as an NSAID that is most commonly used to treat pain, fever and headache. Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding. However, as I said, this is...

Blue pill L368 naproxen double dose

Can I take two at the same time if I'm in a lot of pain? ## I can confirm that these are over the counter naproxen 220 mg (NDC 0113-4368 among others), which are nsaid fever + pain relievers. That being said, taking two would result in a 440 mg dose, which is actually lower than some prescription doses of 500 mg. As far as dosage instructions for adults 12 and over go, the page on DailyMed states: - take 1 caplet every 8 to 12 hours while symptoms last - for the first dose you may take 2 caplets within the first hour - do not exceed 2 caplets in any 8- to 12-hour period - do not exceed 3 caplets in a 24-hour period So according to the above directions, you should be okay to take 2 caplets for your first dose only. ## Sounds like they are naproxen 220mg i think, often used for pain r...

Charlote Arthritis Mexican pain pill

My wife, age 84, had arthroscopic surgery on her knee 15 years ago with little benefit. Lately she has had the rooster shots with no benefit. A few days ago she was in agony and friend gave her "Charlote Arthritis" pills from Mexico. The relief was almost instantaneous. She takes two per day and is pain free. The list ingredients are: oak, white willow, magnesium, chamomile, and one item, about 7 letters, too blurred to read. ## Where or how can I get some. I have taken them for my Lupus symptoms and it is an all day relief of pain that nothing else has been able to provide. I cannot find them anymore since the person who used to get them is no longer available. ## El Centro Super Center, Nuevo Progresso, Tamp, MX Hurry before Trump screws up everything and closes the border. ##...

Round White IP188 250

Not sure what this pill is for ...Can someone please tell me ..If it is naproxine what is it used for? ## I have a white round pill and the # is ip188 on one side and 250 on the other side. What is it used for? ## Akyma Pharmaceuticals lists it as containing 250mgs of Naproxen, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory that is used to treat pain, fever, and swelling. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, stomach irritation, and easy bruising. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I need help identifying a white pill about the size of Aspirin. It has "IP188" on one side and "250" on the other.

yellow t 20 teardrop

Dark Yellow, peach, with T on one side and 20 on the other. Teardrop, oval shaped ## Hi Mando, There are actually two possible matches I wanted to run by you in case either of them ring a bell. The first one is a 500mg Naproxen tablet, manufactured by a company called Aurobindo. It's a yellow "capsule-shaped" tablet marked with T 20. The only thing is, I haven't come across any photos of it to know whether or not the "T and 20" are on opposite sides of the pill. The second possibility I found is a yellow tear drop-shaped Cialis tablet, used for treating ED. The thing about this pill is that the marking is "C 20" and both imprints are shown to be on the same side of the pill in some pictures. What I find strange though is that other photographs show the ...

Naproxen and Motrin What drug would do the same as these. Such as a combination of the two drugs.

I want to know if there is a drug that would be a combination of these two drugs. I can't take them both but I need to take them. I am alternating between them to treat my symptoms. I have Thyroiditis which it swells without the Motrin. and Fibromyalgia which is effecting my spine, spasams without the Naproxen. Please I need help ## They are both nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, which is why you aren't supposed to take both, doing so is essentially doubling up on the same medication, since they both treat the same conditions, and are in the same medication class. Naproxen and Motrin can also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Have you consulted your doctor? They may be able to prescribe medications that c...

L341 blue pill

Blue capsule shaped pill L341 imprint on one side ## From the marking I can tell that this is an over the counter product, however, I cannot find a specific ID for it. Many such OTC blue tablets are Naproxen, the generic for Aleve, so if I had to hazard a guess, that would be it, but as I said, I have no way to be certain of that. Does anyone else know what this is? ## What is a blue pill with the imprint 341?

Amneal Naproxen Sodium and Gluten

Is Naproxen Sodium by Amneal gluten free? ## Hi Susan - I think so. Can you please list exactly which variation you have? How many mg is your tablet? And can you list either the NDC code or the markings on your tablets? I see about a dozen variations of Naproxen from Amneal under various NDC codes. For instance, a white 250 mg tablet with markings IP188 on one side and 250 on the other lists the following inactive ingredients: (NDC 53746-188) - Croscarmellose Sodium - Povidone - Magnesium Stearate But that may not line up with the exact tablet which you have, so if you could please respond with more details?
