Help me identify what I found in my sons laundry

I found some white oblong pills in my sons room that say Ex on one side and nothing on the other. They look like Tylenol but a little bigger. I don't think they are excedrine as I take them for headaches myself. Pill identifyers come up with nothing on the searches. Please help! ## Based on your description, the only white oblong shaped pill with this exact imprint is Excedrin migraine relief (acetaminophen 250 mg + aspirin 250 mg + caffeine 65 mg). Manufactured by: Novartis Consumer Health, Inc. I'd like to think that Excedrin comes in different forms depending on the dosage and manufacturer, but since I don't take this medication I'm not aware of all the dosage forms. If anyone else can confirm this, please do post back! ## Peach color squAre pill. One side has I or 1 ...

Doctors who will prescribe pain medication in rhode island

I am looking for an MD or Pain clinic that will prescribe pain medication in Rhode Island. I have 4 herniated discs, nerve damage in my leg, severe migraines. My former Md said that he could not longer prescribe due to the regulations, I dont want to have to move, that would be crazy to have to go through that, but I also do not want to continue living night and day in Agony, with not one Md that has any compassion, it seems all they care about is to look out for themselves, I only take 2 pain medications that I believe are both in class 1, but when you talk to a doctor about pain, they tell you to take tylenol. I am tired of theses doctors just caring about themselves, if you have a patient like myself, that has the MRI's and Catscans to show what my pain level is, they should be a...

AP 500 white pill

Found this white pill with the marking "AP 500". Not APO or anything else!! Please help. Again "AP" on one side and "500" on the other. Thank you. ## I'm trying to figure out the same thing only this one has AP 500 on the same side. ## What pill is AP500? I found a bottle filled with these, but no name, and can't seem to find it anywhere. ## I don't know the answer but it's most likely something over the counter, or it could also be from outside the US. If it were a standard US prescription drug I'd expect it to be found on DailyMed or another prescription database. ## It's an OTC pain medication. Tylenol, maybe generic, 500 mg

What is 44-175? Tylenol generic?

I have an oblong white pill with the number 44-175 on it and would like to be sure that it is Acetaminophen. Thank you. ## Just to confirm, this tablet does contain Acetaminophen 500 mg (NDC 0182-2152). Acetaminophen is a widely used over-the-counter analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). ## Is the white prolonged pill with 44 175 on it considered Tylenol? I'm pregnant and I can ONLY take Tylenol. ## I'm 30 weeks pregnant today and all I can take is Tylenol. Is 44 175 (Acetaminophen 500 mg) the same as or still considered Tylenol? ## Yes, Acetaminophen is basically a generic Tylenol. It is the active ingredient used in Tylenol.
