White Oblong Pill With C 27

White oblong pill with c27 on one side blank on other ## Based on the description provided, this pill does not exist in any of the US drug databases; therefore I cannot determine anything, other than the possibility that you may have read the markings wrong, or that this pill was imported from another country. Other than double checking the markings on the pill, I would suggest checking your sources of where you got the pill from. If it is in fact a valid source, I would personally go to your local pharmacy for clarification. If it is not from a valid source, odds are it's not the real thing or it is perhaps an old discontinued pill. Either way, please be so kind to post back your findings so others can reference it for similar searches or to help you locate other possibilities. ## ...

30 P10 round white pill

I found this pill vacuuming my guest room. What is this for? My cousin was staying in the room for a few days. I want to know what it is used for? He has some health issues and I'm concerned. ## Found a pill after friend left p10 other 80 what is it for ## @Puka, A round white pill with P10 on one side and 30 on the back is reportedly identified as Pioglitazone hydrochloride (30mg); indicated for use in treating type 2 diabetes. For verification, the manufacturer is listed as Accord Healthcare and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 16729-0021. @Beanue, I've yet to come across anything with the P10 80 imprint. Is there any chance you may have meant to put P10 30 as stated above? Also, what color is your pill?

why pioz mf g2 is banned in india

I am using Pioz MF G2 to control my Blood sugar since two years. Blood sugar level is well controlled. Recently when I tried to find this medicine from market, I am told this is banned due to some chances of stomach cancer. Can any Doctor advise me why it is banned and should I continue the same medicine or not. Regards, Sanjib M. ## Hi Sanjib, Based on my research, the ban on Pioglitazone (Pioz MF G2) in India was actually revoked back in August of 2013. Apparently the reason why it was banned in the first place had to do with the central government's opinion concerning the safety of Pioglitazone, thinking it may have had life-threatening side effects (I believe cancer was one of them). However, after several protests from doctors across the country, I guess they let up on their de...
