  • Small, White, oblong, L612

    I do not know if the "six-one-two" is actually correct.

    The imprint simply has a straight vertical line (not a score mark) between the 6 and 2, so it literally looks like a small case "l" (letter L). Perhaps "6-l-2"? No. I do not think that's correct given "regular" imprint standards.

    Several of these were mixed in my new prescription bottle of generic Claritin (Loratadine). The pills I normally get are round, white, GG296. (These were also in the bottle).



    There were no stickers on the bottle or bag from my pharmacist indicating a pill change.

    L 612 is just as you suspected.

    It's loratadine 10 mg (generic Claritin).

    It's now sold over the counter and has been sold OTC for a few years now.

    I'm curious why you are getting GG 296 and L 612 as prescriptions? Both are definitely sold OTC.

      Thanks for getting back so quick! About the OTC, my insurance is kind enough to pay for the prescription, even if a drug is also available OTC. (Not all instances, but in this one they do.)
      Thank you!

        Thank you so much for answering my query!

        That's great about your insurance. Unfortunately I know a lot of people are penalized when something goes OTC. But it should not be that way.

        Some things are still very expensive OTC like Claratin. And now Zyrtec. Both are outrageous considering all the companies making generics.

        Once these meds go OTC they should be cheaper than any insurance copays.

        If they aren't less expensive, why bother putting them over the counter?
