Mylan's M 752 Pill

Until recently, we had thought that there is no Mylan 752 pill. In fact, there really isn't, when speaking of a pill indexed with "MYLAN" letters. However, there is a pill with the number "752", and this pill is produced by Mylan Pharmaceuticals Inc. Instead of "MYLAN" it has a single letter "M". So, we should better call it Mylan M 752 pill (round, blue-colored). It is Fexofenadine HCl 30 mg, generic for Allegra. The medication mainly is used 1) to relieve symptoms associated with seasonal allergic rhinitis in adults and children aged 2 and above, and 2) to treat uncomplicated skin manifestations of chronic idiopathic urticaria in adults and children of 6 months and older.

Mylan 1560 - Phenytoin capsules

One half of them is always white-colored. The other half is normally described as lavender, though some people tend to call it light purple or bluish gray. On both halves "Mylan 1560" can be seen printed in black ink. So, what do we have after all? It is extended-release Phenytoin (generic Dilantin), an anti-convulsant used to control seizures. The dose of Phenytoin Sodium in each capsule is 100 mg. The medication may have some specific adverse effects, among which we find a serious skin reaction with higher risk of development in Asian patients. It is strongly recommended to take a specific blood test before starting treatment.
