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.
