I have been prescribed both prednisone 5mg and 10mg tablets. They look identical.
Is this correct that they should look identical?
Do they have any markings on them, imprint codes?
All prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs in the U.S. are required by the FDA to have an imprint code. If your pill has no imprint code it could be a vitamin, diet, herbal, or energy pill, or an illicit or foreign drug. It is not possible to accurately identify a pill online without an imprint code.
One packet will have 5mg on it and the other 10mg on it usually same apart from mg all depends on what you have been prescribed to take you can get 1mg 2mg don't forget about steroid sick days good drugs if used correctly do not take them willy nilly steroids should be taken as soon as you get up in a morning not spaced unless your doctor tells you too.
