Round white pill w/530 & MD inscribed
- 30 Mar 2006 by Jacqueline96749
I found a pill that I am unable to identify. It is round, white, and approximately 1 mm in size. Additionally, it is scaled and has the number 530 on one side and the letters "MD" on the other. I have looked in pharmaceutical texts, and have consulted the internet and the search function on this website. Despite these resources, I still have not been able to attach a name, generic or otherwise, to this medication.
Any help would be truly appreciated!

Looks like this?
If so, then it's:
Methylphenidate Tablets(Tab 10 mg)
METHYLPHENIDATE (Methylin(TM), Ritalin(R)) is a stimulant. It can improve attention span, concentration, and emotional control, and reduce restless or overactive behavior. This medicine treats attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It can also help a condition called narcolepsy, an illness that makes it difficult to stay awake during normal daytime ho

I took a look at the picture you supplied and the pill I found looks exactly like it. It being the generic equivalent of Methylphenidate also makes sense because I was prescribed this medication quite some time ago for severe migraines. By the way, it did not help and I hated the side-effects. I got rid of the medication, but one pill must have strayed from the bottle.
Thanks so much for your very quick response and invaluable help. As I remarked previously, I was driving myself nuts trying to identify this medication! I'm so glad I can deem this personal conundrum as "case closed."

I'm not all THAT old, but I found a pill on the floor in my house and used my reading glasses from Michael's, since the inscribed numbers ...
