    Default what are these white oval TEC 1 pills?

    I found 3 in my mailbox when I moved in.
    They are white, oval and have TEC 1 on them. I thought they were percocet but theres what appears to be a 1 on them. Any ideas?

    This pill may possibly be a ratio-Lenoltec No. 1 caplet, from Canada.

    Description from ratiopharm.ca

    ratio-Lenoltec No. 1 Caplets: Each white, oblong caplet, engraved with "TEC" and "1" on one side and the other side plain, contains acetaminophen 300 mg, caffeine 15 mg, and codeine 8 mg.

    This medication is used for the treatment of mild to moderate pain associated with conditions such as headache, dental pain, muscle pain, painful menstruation, pain following an accident, and pain following operations. It is also used to reduce fever.

    ratio-Lenoltec No. 1 contains 8 mg of Codeine.
    Tylenol with Codeine No3 contains 30 mg of Codeine, and Tylenol with Codeine No4 contains 60 mg of codeine.

    Thats kind of like Percocets correct?
    I had them when my wisdom teeth were pulled.
    Im assuming those have more codeine and ant. in them.

    Similar.

    Percocet contains oxycodone and acetaminophen. Oxycodone and codeine are both narcotic analgesics but oxycodone is more potent than codeine.

    The ratio-Lenoltec No. 1 pill is not nearly as strong as a Percocet.
