NJPharmacist :

Hello! I am NJPharmacist I will answer your question to the best of my ability!

NJPharmacist :

Give me a second while I research this question.

NJPharmacist :

There are no more markings on it , correct? Just m on one side, and 15 on the other? Does the M have a square around it?

NJPharmacist :

I have two results-

NJPharmacist :

However, they don't have the exact description you have

NJPharmacist :

Let me try to send you a picture

NJPharmacist :

While I am going to try to post it, Here are the results,

NJPharmacist :

The first pill I got has an M on 1 side, and a C over a 15 on the other side.

NJPharmacist :

This drug would be clonazepam

NJPharmacist :

Clonazepam 2mg - This is a benzodiazepine medication similiar to Xanax

NJPharmacist :

The second result I got, which is most likely not it, is Lomotil, an opioid type of medication used for diarrhea. However, this pill has an M and 15 on the same side

NJPharmacist :

hang on a second , I am going to switch computers

NJPharmacist :

Hey bud how are you

NJPharmacist :

I am posting you a picture, hang on one second

NJPharmacist :

Does the M have a square around it?

Customer:

no opposite sides

Customer:

yes it does

NJPharmacist :

NJPharmacist :

Let me keep looking

Customer:

no thats not it doesnt have a C

NJPharmacist :

I'm looking in our drug Database, I can't find anything That is a Round, White Tablet, with M squared on one side, and 15 on the other. Would you be able to take a picture of it and upload it to photobucket?

Customer:

i found that one too just a M with a square on one side and a line down the middle withe the # XXXXX on the top of the other

NJPharmacist :

Which one? The one with the c/15?

NJPharmacist :

let me see if I can post you a bunch of M squares

NJPharmacist :

and you pick out which one is similiar

Customer:

theres no C

NJPharmacist :

Ok hang on I'm posting them now

NJPharmacist :

see if any of these match, I'll keep posting

NJPharmacist :

http://s1162.photobucket.com/albums/q530/NjPharmacist/

NJPharmacist :

got a handful more being posted

NJPharmacist :

refresh that page, I've posted a few more

NJPharmacist :

I don't get an exact match for that, however it is possible that a portion of the pill is faded- I've seen this happen several times

NJPharmacist :

While you are checking, give me one second I am going to grab a glass of water.

NJPharmacist :

Please excuse me.

Customer:

they didnt fade again M with a square around it on one side and on the other side a line through the middle with the number 15 on top

NJPharmacist :

If there is a line through it, it was most likely separating another number from the 15, that is usually the purpose of the line

NJPharmacist :

is there any way you can upload a picture to me?

Customer:

they look like this except just the number 15

NJPharmacist :

ok one second

NJPharmacist :

This is the closest, hang on

NJPharmacist :

This may be it

NJPharmacist :

http://s1162.photobucket.com/albums/q530/NjPharmacist/?action=view&current=oxyc015d.jpg

NJPharmacist :

Does that look like it?

NJPharmacist :

The reason why it was difficult to ID, is because this tablet is described as a very very light green, not white

Customer:

sorry about the color yes thats it

NJPharmacist :

No problem- that is oxycodone 15 mg

NJPharmacist :

immediate release

NJPharmacist :

It is an opioid analgesic medication

Customer:

ok now know what im dealing with thank you for your help!

NJPharmacist :

No problem, do you have anymore questions?

NJPharmacist :

Sorry I took so long- sometimes the Pill ID is very specific

NJPharmacist :

even if it has a tad of green, but to the naked eye is white, it can be frustrating to find. Sorry about the wait, I was going crazy looking for it,.

NJPharmacist :

Anything at all I can do for you?

Customer:

i understand thanks again i will hit accept now

NJPharmacist :

No problem. I hope you have a good day bud. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. :)
