... Found in my child's room
Oxycodone 15 mg: Green colored, round-shaped, biconvex, beveled edge, uncoated tablets, debossed with ‘187’ on one side and scored on the other side.
Oxycodone is used in the treatment of pain and belongs to the drug class narcotic analgesics. FDA has not classified the drug for risk during pregnancy.
Oxycodone 15 mg has a high potential for abuse.
I found the information below at the website drugs.com. Go to the pill identifier and put the description of the pill and it should pull up a list of the medications with a picture.
Drug: Carbidopa and Levodopa (Orally Disintegrating)
Strength: 25 mg / 100 mg
I had to google this one asking for a picture.
Drug: Oxycodone Hydrochloride
Strength: 15 mg
They both look very similiar, both have 187 on one side, and a a line through the middle on the other side. The only difference is the color which is hard to see if you don't have the medication right in front of you and the pictures side-by-side. My recommendation is for you to look the pictures up and compare, you could also take them to the pharmacy they can disipher what the pill is. If your child is underage I would question them about it, and/or you can go to the drug store or walmart and buy a urine drug screen for a reasonable price. If it's positive find out how long he/she's been taking the medication, who they been getting it from. I am a nurse and use to work at an out-patient addiction clinic. The patients who were taking narcotics had withdrawls sometime severe. Your next step would then be to take them to an out-patient treatment center in your area. I hope this was helpful and good luck.
