All prescription and over-the-counter drugs sold in the US are required by law to be uniquely identifiable by their imprint, shape and color. However, many pills are notoriously difficult to identify. This is especially true for OTC pill imprints and foreign drugs.

For all the pill identification ‘gurus’ out there (and anyone else who just happens to have the same pill on hand or knows what it is), we are assembling a list of unidentified drug imprints that have been submitted to this and other forums.

Please respond below if you can identify or provide any clues regarding these medications. Often simply knowing the originating country, intended use or manufacturer can considerably narrow down the search.

Squares Logo 10

Thanks for the new forum.  This is great having a permanent list of unidentified pill imprints so I don't have to look through my notes every day.  BTW, I have a few 'mystery meds' to contribute if that's okay.

Regarding the pink pill with two interlocking squares, a poster on another board described the squares as overlapping each other like how you would draw a cube.  He also suggested this pill is from Mexico and might be OxyContin.  He may have meant oxycodone.  But I don't think OxyContin or oxycodone  is available in Mexico at present unless it's imported from the US or the UK.

Pink Micron

Was searching for this to ID it as well, but that's after I got it in the mail on purpose after ordering Codeine through an online pharmacy.

This is ok for me as I am in Canada and its without perscription in small doses.

I believe this one has 10mg of Codeine, and no paracetol or acetomeniphen (spelling's bad, I know)...

that may explain another poster's offhanded comment to the same effect on the sites "most wanted" list which had its picture...

After taking one for mild pain (knee injury) I have no reason to believe its viagra at all, as had been conjectured before, because I did experience some slight analgesic effects.

Hope this helps.
