    Default Light-brown-red oval, G101 imprint, atypical "G"

    From another board I visit:
    quote:My little sister's most recent escapade, dropping 2 pills out of her purse and not noticing it, they're not anything she's be "officially perscribed" but even i don't know what they are.

    the only one that's whole is a football shaped light-brown-red, 1/4in long one with G101 typed on it. The G is fancy, not typical typewriter style. The only thing google came up with was "Generic Penicillin," but that link is dead and i can't find any pics to verify. anyone have any idea what it really is?
    Thanks to anyone that can help. Working on an image.

    No dice, huh? Anyone have a good site for looking up generics?

    Sorry - I have to admit defeat on this one. I have searched everywhere I can think of with no results

    Here's a crude drawing of the imprint. I'm trying like hell to figure out whether it can be misinterpreted by someone that doesn't neccessarily know what they're looking at. I know there's a fair number of GG101s that are muscle relaxants...but I've never seen the imprint on one to compare.

    Still working on that photo.

    GG 101 is METHOCARBAMOL 750 MG, a muscle relaxant. The pill is white, oblong and scored.
    Does the G on your pill have straight edges like on a hexagon?

    Sorry, didn't realize that [img] wasn't a valid tag here.

    It sure looks hexagonal in the sketch he made. However, the color sounds inaccurate. Do all manufacturers use the same color scheme for their tablets?

    The pill you have is a possibly a generic made by Greenstone. They use a G (like a hexagon) logo as an imprint on their pills.

    The GG imprints belong to Sandoz (formerly Geneva).
