Mylan A3

And again, Mylan's Xanax (or alprazolam). This time the pill is peach-colored. On one side you may read "MYLAN A3", the other side is scored. It contains 0.5 mg of alprazolam (that is 1/2 of Mylan A1 pill). What else should be added? In doses of 0.5mg and above alprazolam can cause significant deterioration in alertness, combined with increased feelings of sleepiness. These symptoms may be doubled if alprazolam is taken together with other sedatives or alcohol.

Compare Mylan 147 and Mylan 143

Mylan 147 is almost the same as Mylan 143. The capsule is green (or blue-green) again, and again it is Indomethacin. "MYLAN 147" is imprinted on both sides of the capsule. The difference is in strenth. Mylan 147 contains 50 mg of Indomethacin - twice as much as Mylan 143 capsule.

Mylan 143

Now, the capsule is green. Sometimes described as bluish green. "MYLAN 143" is written on both sides of the capsule. What kind of medication is it? It is Indomethacin, an NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug). It is a pain-killer also used to reduce fever and swelling. Each capsule contains 25mg of Indomethacin.

Mylan 477

Another version of Diazepam (Valium) manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals is Mylan 477. The pill is round, light-green, with "MYLAN 477" imprinted on one side and a score on the other. It contains 10mg of diazepam. The score enables you to half the dose by breaking the pill into two. Half of Mylan 477 is equal to one whole Mylan 345 (which is 5mg of diazepam). It is made either to help you make your dose less when you have only Mylan 477 pills at hand, or to help you swallow the pill in two gulps - more easily, as half a piece is twice smaller than the whole one.

What Is Your Mylan Pill or Capsule

We are starting this blog as an addition to our Mylan Pills website.
We are studying the problem of identifying different pills and capsules that have "MYLAN" with some other letters and numbers imprinted on them.

Sometimes you find such a pill (or a capsule) in your child's room, and you may wonder what kind of drug it is. Perhaps, it is dangerous? Or one of your relatives has got some health problems he or she does not want to speak of? Or you are just not quite sure of the medication that has been prescribed for you, and look for more details.

Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc is a well-known American company. It manufactures generic versions of popular medications. Each Mylan pill/capsule has some letters and numbers imprinted on it. So, you may easily find out what chemical is "hidden" under those symbols. The only problem is that the information you need is not always so easily available. You have to browse through several websites doing your search before you find the proper description and, perhaps, images to compare your Mylan pill with them.

We are trying to solve this problem by collecting all the necessary details and keeping them "in stock".

For example, you've got an orange capsule with "MYLAN 4010" written on it. What kind of medication is it? The number 4010 says that it is Temazepam, also known as Restoril. The capsule contains 15mg of Temazepam. The medication is used to treat insomnia. More info and an image of the capsule you can find at this page: Mylan 4010.

And so on. We continue developing our project, adding more pages for more Mylan products.
