Mylan's M2 Pill

We have already mentioned Furosemide (generic for Lasix) manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals (Mylan 216 and Mylan 232 pills), but in case with the pill of the smallest strength the situation is slightly different. It is not indexed with MYLAN letters, there is only one letter M on each of them, or M2, to put it more correct. However, they are still Mylan pills. Each M2 pill contains 20 mg of a loop diuretic Furosemide. Making urination more frequent, Furosemide lowers the level of salt in your system, removing extra water and in thus taking the excessive load off your heart, liver, and kidneys.

Mylan 377 - 250 mg Naproxen

This is a little round pill, white, with MYLAN embossed on one side and 377 on the other. Mylan 377 is 250 mg Naproxen (generic Naprosyn, or Aleve, or Midol), the smallest dosage of the medication manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals. Being an NSAID, Naproxen is used for the treatment of inflammation and as pain-killer. As only dosages of 220 mg or less (e.g., Aleve) are available over-the-counter, to get Mylan 377 pills you normally have to obtain a prescription.

Beware that Naproxen increases your risk of life-threatening heart or circulation problems, including heart attack or stroke. It can also increase your risk of serious effects on the stomach or intestines, including bleeding or perforation. Long-term usage of the medication can worsen its adverse effects.
