I've just encountered a mystery pill in the back of my medicine cabinet. It's white and round, like Aspirin, with WHR on it. The reverse side is kind of mottled looking, like stucco. It's in an unmarked brown bottle.

Ascriptan

It might very well be an Ascriptan too.  That was an old William H. Roher pill that along with the Maalox and the Quaaludes were rather popular back in the 70s.  My boss used to chew on the ascriptans all the time.  Nothing but an aspirin with 325 mgs of it.  That's all it was.  I don't think they're on the market any longer.
