    quick question robarino - did somebody try to tell you this was something other than loperamide? I just had a guy try to pass this tab off as a 10mg generic oxycontin. I'm not doubting your expertise on the >> robo, but do you know which company manufactures this generic? Thanks guys.

    They do not make generic 10mg Oxycontin.They only make the generic Oxycontin in 80mg.I know i haven't been right 100% of the time but thankfully Robo was able to quickly correct my mistake but there has been a new member out there spreading wrong information on peoples post.BTW Thank you Robo -JON

    According to RxList, it is Novopharm, but this may possibly be an old imprint.
    Imprint Code: L-2
    Drug/Strength/Manufacturer: Loperamide 2mg - Imodium - Novopharm
    Description: Tablet - Green - Oblong


    As far as I am aware, this pill is manufactured by Perrigo.

    Robo, I think L-2 is manufactured by Perrigo. An image of the pill and more info about loperamide can be found at ahealthyme.com

    Thanks for the replies and the info. on generic OC. I'm stumped now because the picture from that link is not the pill I'm looking at. It's very close - color seems right on, tab is MAYBE a little shorter and thicker than the one in the pic, and there is no dash on the imprint - just L2. Maybe the L-2 is an old imprint?? Any ideas? Thanks.

    Nothing like a picture for clarification, huh?

    Sorry, I don't have any other ideas. According to two databases, all green oblong scored tablets imprinted either L-2 or L 2 are loperamide. But the L 2 could be a typo in the databases since we know L-2 exists. There is a round green tablet with the L 2 imprint too - it's a mineral supplement. But I'm guessing it's dark green.

    If I find anything else, I'll post back.

    Default A little more info on initial L2 question

    Most of the replies above seem to be generally correct. I just joined this community to do research on exactly the same question, ie. what is this L2 pill? I realize this post was about 5 years ago, but perhaps what I've learned will be helpful to others.

    I can add one small observation. I've got a bottle of WalMart "Equate" generic 2mg Imodium (Loperamide Hydrochloride). The small, very pale green, oblong, scored, uncoated caplets simply say "L2". There is NO hyphen. The bottle says it's packaged by Perrigo, but says nothing about who actually manufactured it.
