Mylan 4250 yellow capsule. We have already examined some Doxepin capsules distributed by Mylan Pharmaceuticals, but it's time to add a few more to the list. Mylan manufactures Doxepin hydrochloride (generic Aponal, Sinequan or Silenor) in different strengths. Although no information about the stregths is available on the capsules, as they are only marked with pill indexes, you can find out all you have to know exploring the numbers on the pills. The index "MYLAN 4250" printed in black on both halves of a yellow-colored capsule means that it contains 50mg Doxepin hydrochloride. It is a psychotropic agent with tricyclic antidepressant and anxiolytic properties.
The blue-colored Mylan 1610 capsule is 10mg Dicyclomine hydrochloride, which is mainly used for the treatment of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). It is a generic which is equal to brand name Bentyl. Generic versions of the medicine are produced and distributed in the USA by two big rival pharmaceutical companies, Watson and Mylan. In both cases, you get very similar blue-colored capsules which only differ in their indexes (Mylan 1610 and Watson 794), and hardly differ in their contents.

One more oval-shaped pill featuring MYLAN letters on it, with the number "88" debossed on the other side. The color of the pill can be described as gray to lavender. What is it? Mylan 88 is a compound medication with a rather complicated generic name which goes as Carbidopa and Levodopa (25mg/100mg), and is used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Its popular brand name sounds very simple: Sinemet. But remember, Mylan Pharmaceuticals does only produce generic versions of popular brands. Which, in fact, do only differ from brands by names, not in quality.
