    Hi Jerry
    I hope this information helps ease your mind - so you can now go on and enjoy your son's birthday.

    The pills are both the same drug but made by different companies. The pills are Doxycycline Hyclate 20 mg, an antibiotic, and most likely prescribed by a dentist.

    The pill's are alittle smaller then an asprin white in color one says on it ( MP/573 )
    This pill is DOXYCYCLINE HYCLATE 20MG, an antibiotic.
    Generic for: Periostat
    Description: white, round, film coated tablet, imprint MP 573
    You will find this description on the manufacturer's website
    urlmutual.com
    Info at https://www.drugs.com/doxycycline.html

    THE other one says (PS/20)
    This pill is the brand name version of above
    PERIOSTAT 20 MG (generic name: Doxycycline Hyclate
    Imprint Code PS 20
    Description white, round tablet

    You will find a description at the bottom of the PDR page for Periostat at
