    Default Found in teenager's room

    Football shaped, dark reddish-brown gel cap. No markings, just a seam. Dark red gel. Can anyone help me identify before I confront my teen?

    No, there's no way to ID a pill without an imprint. All Rx and OTC drugs in the US are required by law to have an imprint, otherwise it could be a vitamin, herbal, energy, diet, foreign or illicit.

    Sounds like an herbal preparation or possibly an empty cap for putting any number of powders in.

    I believe the original poster said it was a geltab. Maybe i misunderstood you, are you saying that it is empty for no apparent reason or that the OP's daughter would fill it with her own powder? Sorry, I'm confused by your post.

    I found the exact same pill in my teenagers room this morning. It is a brown squishy capsule with no markings.

    Do you know what it is?

    When i cut it open it had red gooey stuff in it. I found 15 of them in a baggie. Do you think it could be some kind of detox pill?

    We confronted my son and he said it is a detox pill for marijuana. Hope this helps.

    Marijuna isn't something one detox's from, and a pill for this? Get out, he's giving you a line of BS, now if it was something like Marinol which is imprinted UM I might say okay.
    My hunch is it's Coricidin and he's pulling the wool over your eyes and getting high on them instead.

    It was a pill so the pot doesn't show up in your system for a drug test. It was like cranberry inside. He got them from a friend that gets drug tested and he got them from his mom.

    FYI, there is no such pill that really works to mask marijuana in a UA.

    sounds to me he is taking a supplement like rip fuel or something along those lines. He can buy it from GNC. It's for energy and exercise.

    Default hunger supressant

    Ephedra-5 fits your description perfectly.

    It is an appetite suppressant containing caffeine, several herbs, and ephedrine.
    It can be used as a legal OTC stimulant.

    You can't say that with any certainty.

    Default Teen lied

    There is no rapid detox pill that fits that description on the market. Maybe that was what he was told however whoever gave him that was misleading him.......

    No good

    Lightbulb Curious Dillema

    Dear sir or madam:

    While I do not give any information as 100%, I feel that I may be qualified to assist you as I am a Clinical Nurse Practitioner and write hundreds of scripts each and every week. As a previous user did tell you, by law all OTC and script strength medication is required to have and imprint and number. If it does not it is not prescription strength or OTC. This does alleviate some of the alarm, in that at least you know your child is not using prescription medication. It does not mean it is not what is commonly known as "street pharmaceuticals" or that it isn't equally as bad like a energy booster (yellow jackets). From what you described it as it sounds like it may just be a diet or energy pill. Rather harmless as long as they are using them as directed, yet keep in mind they are generally not good for a person with prolonged usage. Hope this has been helpful!: cool:

    Default Definitely not coricidan

    Fisrtly, coricidan is not a capsule, it is round. Secondly, I coricidan doesn't have red goey stuff inside of it. It does sound similar to a diet pill I used to take called dimetadrine, which I purchased OTC at GMC and it contained ephdrine and 100mg of caffine. However, 4 or 5 years ago they were taken off the market as ephdrine was made illegal. My suggestion would be to consult a pharmcist.

    Default Red football

    It may be hard to see, but is there an "AN3" stamped on this pill? I don't know what it is either, but my Google searches keep turning up Tramadol, although I have yet to be able to find a photo to match it.

    Ha! Thanks to Pill ID here I found it as a last choice. It is Ducosate, a stool softener. Could be innocent enough, but I found left behind in an apartment formerly rented to Oxycontin users, and we know that opiate abuse can lead to chronic constipation.
