This drug was found on the floor in a classroom, and it appeared to have been either placed in the mouth, the coating partially dissolved, showing a splotchy orange color. Moisture could have been added in some other way, as well, the reason for the splotchiness is unknown, but it looked as if it had gotten wet somehow. It is oblong, elliptical or capsule shaped, and pretty big, definitely an adult sized pill. It was not a capsule, though.There was no bar in the middle as there are on some pills, and the only recognizable lettering was a C and perhaps an S or a 5. Thank you for any answers you can provide.
Pill imprint S 5 has been identified as Simvastatin 20 mg.
