I have a pink oval shaped pill with the letters OC on the top and roman numeral 2 just below it on one side only. Nothing is printed on the other side. It's kind of a large pill too.
What is this pink oval pill with letters OC on the top and roman numeral 2 just below it?

Ok, I found the answer myself. It is a pill called Femcaps made by Otis-Clapp Buffington (hence the OC on the pill). They are manufacturers for occupational medications. This was supplied by the medics at the studios such as Warner Bros. or Disney. It is for menstrual relief, but does not cause drowsiness because it contains caffeine. Contains 500 mg Acetominophen, 75 mg caffeine and some other ingredients I can't make out on the packet. There is a similar pill made by the same company called Back-Quell. The pill looks exactly the same except it is white with similar ingredients and also contains caffeine.

I checked out the Otis-Clapp website and the packet looks just like the boxes. I found another packet of Femcaps and the ingredients are Acetaminophen 500mg, Caffeine 75 mg, Pamabrom 10 mg and Pyridoine Hydrochloride 1 mg per tablet. Also found a packet of Back-Quell. The ingredients in that are Aspirin 360 mg, Caffeine 75 mg, Magnesium Salicylate 60 mg and Magnesium Carbonate 100 mg per tablet. Femcaps works wonders. My husband liked taking Femcaps because they work so well at not just relieving the pain, but also for the great pick me up. I like it better than Excedrin Extra Strength.
I have been unable to find any information about your pill. Is it possible your pill is foreign, a natural product or dietary supplement? Is there any more detail you can add? or have you been able to find an answer to your question elsewhere? Let me know.
Otherwise, can you please re-check the imprint or maybe your local pharmacy could assist you.
A lot of Oxycodone pills have OC on them but usually on the otherside they have a number depicting the strength of the tablet - ie 20 means 20mg.
I'm quite certain it's not an herbal supplement. Any herbal supplements I have are usually in a clear capsule with green powder inside. My fiance had leukemia and this is one of a few medications I found that were not in a prescription bottle. It doesn't look like any inscription was on the other side at all. It's smooth. The pink outer coating is slightly mottled, but that might be because it was tossed around with a few other misc pills. It's definitley an unusual looking pill and I haven't found any information at all about it.
I belive this is an Oral Contraceptive pill which stop the release of eggs on a women's body it is just not to get pregnant.
