    Default G177 blue pill

    I found these in my sons room - they are Robin egg blue and round - written in black is G177 I would greatly appreciate any help on finding out what these are.

    Thank you!

    Doesn't look like anyone is having luck with your pill. The closest I could find is "E177. The stylized E is often mistaken for a G. The color is a match but I think you said it was round, not oblong.... I know it's doubtful but I hate to see a thread with 0 replies :/

    Anyway here's an image:

    I saw that one on line too and it isn't it. I do appreciate you checking it out for me though.

    Thank you so much!

    Hi alicebeagle,

    Does the tablet appear to have a dense coating like an M&M candy? If so could you please take off part of the coating and see if the interior is greenish brown or an 'earthy' color? Thanks.

    Kirby,
    The color right under the blue is white - then the center is a wood color like sawdust color is the best I can describe it - brown.

    Thanks!

    Thanks, alicebeagle!

    Okay, I'm 99% positive your son's tablet is sennosides, an OTC laxative. It's generic for Senokot.

    I have three different store brands. All three are blue coated and shaped like an M&M candy or an Advil tablet. All three are about 10 mm in diameter and about 5 mm thick.

    I cut open one and it does have a very thin layer of white. So it's a robins egg blue on the outside, a thin layer of white under (or part of) the coating, and the interior of the pill is brown. In fact, your 'sawdust' description is a perfect description of the color and texture! Thanks so much.

    I don't know the manufacturer of the G 177 tab. It could be Granutec or possibly Guardian.

    Granutec uses a plain uppercase "G" and Guardian uses a stylized "G". Check out Guardian's website and take a look at the "G" logo in the upper left corner of the home page:

    Thank you so much! Laxatives are the least of my concern with him. I am so relieved to know that is all it is. He has some problems that I am addressing and I was worried this was yet another pill. Thank you so much for your help!
