One more Mylan pill indexed with "M" letter, not with the whole word "MYLAN". Now it is M T7 pill - Mylan's generic version for Ultram (Tramadol HCl). It is a little round white pill with "M" debossed on one side and "T7" on the other. The medicine belongs to the opioid class, and is similar in its effects to codeine. It is a mild narcotic pain killer used for treatment of moderate to strong pain. Each Mylan's M T7 pill contains 50 mg of instant release Tramadol HCl. It should mentioned that Tramadol has a high potential for abuse and must not be taken without prescription.

Mylan Pharmaceuticals manufactures a range of Alprazolam (generic Xanax) pills. All of them can be identified by the letter "A" debossed on one of the sides. The "A" letter is found alone on the least strength of Mylan's Alprazolam (0.25mg pill), while on the pills of greater strength "A" is combined with a number (1, 3 or 4). The pill indexed with "Mylan A3" is 0.5mg Alprazolam. It is, perhaps, the most popular one in the line. The shape of the pill is round, the color can be described as peach. Mylan A3 is an immediate release formulation which is distinguished from extended release versions. In addition to "A", the latter have a letter "M" on the other side (the numbers are different, too).
