What Is Your Round White Pill? 21 Possibilities

medical-1573038_640

Have a round white pill in a baggie or pillbox and you aren’t sure what it is? Trying to figure out what the loose white round pill with a numbered imprint in the bottom of your medicine drawer is?

In this guide to identifying your white round pill, we’ll go over how to identify an unknown white round pill and include some common round white pills with different imprints to help you identify your mysterious medication!

 

Identifying Your Round White Pill: Safety Note

Before we describe how to identify your round white pill, here are a couple of important safety notes on unidentified pills:

 

#1: Don’t Take a Pill If You Aren’t Sure What It Is

Unless you are absolutely, positively, 100% sure that you’ve successfully identified your white round pill, don’t take it. Taking medication when you aren’t 100% sure what you’re taking is incredibly dangerous and could even lead to death depending on what the pill is and what else you’re taking.

 

#2: Don’t Take Pills That Weren’t Prescribed to You

Even if you successfully identify the pill in question, what should you do if it’s not something that’s been prescribed to you? If you identify a prescription medication that wasn’t prescribed to you, don’t take it. It’s very dangerous to take pills that weren’t prescribed to you because a doctor has not assessed whether that medication is safe for you to take.

Also, it’s best to keep pills in their original bottles as much as possible so that you don’t end up with unidentified little white round pills floating around. But if you’re reading this article, it’s too late for that! Just something to keep in mind for the future.

3 Steps to Identifying Your Round White Pill

Here is our 3-step process to identifying your white round pill:

 

Step 1: Check Imprint/Pill Code

Many pills have some kind of number or letter combination imprinted on one or both sides. This is known as the imprint or the pill code.

The first thing to do is check whether there’s any kind of stamp on either side of your white round pill. If yes, note down what it is. A white round pill with an imprint will be much easier to identify than a circle white pill without one.

 

Step 2: Measure Pill Size

Are you dealing with a small round white pill? A medium-sized one? A big one? Measuring your pill’s exact length in millimeters will help you identify it, especially if your pill has an imprint that other, different medications also have.

 

Step 3: Look Up Pill

We have some common imprints (with sizes) listed in the next section of this article. (You can ctrl+F to try to find the imprint/pill code you are looking for). If the pill you’re looking for isn’t listed below, you can look up pills by size, shape, color, and imprint on the National Library of Medicine’s Pillbox site.

Note that some pills share an imprint. For example, a small round white pill with an imprint of 10 could be hyoscyamine sulfate, iloperidone, alendronate sodium, or one of several other drugs.

Knowing the size might help you narrow it down, but then again, maybe not: both hyoscyamine sulfate and alendronate sodium come in 5 mm pills. The pictures of the pills are slightly different, but not all the pills in Pillbox have pictures.

If you can’t determine definitively what the pill is, don’t take it, and follow safe disposal practices per the FDA.

Identifying Your Round White Pill: The Bottom Line

Is your unidentified white pill round? In this article, we went over how to identify a white round pill with an imprint or pill code.

First it’s important to note that if you can’t identify what your small round white pill is definitively, you shouldn’t take it. You also shouldn’t take a circle white pill if it’s prescription-only and something that wasn’t prescribed to you.

Here’s our three-step process to identifying your little round white pill:

  1. Check the imprint/code (the combination of letters and numbers found on one or both sides of the pill).
  2. Measure the pill’s size in mm.
  3. Check the rest of the article for common pill codes and imprints, or look on Pillbox if it’s not listed. Note that multiple medicines may share the same pill code and even the same size. If you can’t definitively identify your pill, don’t take it.
