the tablet was told by a friend that it is methyldopa. I need to know for sure what kind of medication it is. The dosage amount and if it's a prescription drug. Any need to know side effects and how long the tablet effects last. And what are they used as a treatment, also what is the minimum age allowed by law to be written a prescription.
The pill in question is not methyldopa. Why is your friend giving you any pills, it is against the law. I have no idea what kind of pill that is and would most certainly dispose of it properly. Methyldopa is a blood pressure medication, and yes you need a prescription for it. There are no restrictions on age if your doctor determines you need a prescription medication.
Please don't accept pills from anyone except your doctor or pharmacist. To take any pills not prescribed for you, given to you by a friend could cause you to become ill or possibly die.
Please be careful, the world can be a dangerous place.
This pill is not in the site's pill identifier, so I would hazard a guess that it's either some kind of supplement or perhaps something that was received off an internet "pharmacy". At any rate it should be disposed of immediately and your "friend" cautioned about handing out pills. Just my thoughts.
