    Hi! If that's not really an "A" but a stylized "R" logo that could be mistaken for an "A", then it's quite probably Spironolactone 50 MG, which is a potassium-sparing diuretic used to reduce the amount of water in the body without loss of potassium; can also be used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension); and also to help increase the amount of potassium in the body when it is getting too low.

    Trade or Brand Name Spironolactone
    Generic Name Spironolactone Tab 50 MG
    NDC 00228267211
    Manufacturer or
    Distributor PUREPAC
    Schedule R
    Imprint 1 a logo and 672
    Color(s) white
    Shape oval
    Coating film-coated
    Score partially scored

    Check out the Purepac.com website/Product Line/View by generic name/spironolactone - and you can compare the logo imprint.

      I too found a plastic container of these pills laying in the bushes. I picked it up so that some little kid wouldn't take them. It is definitely an "A" not an R. The container was not a prescription bottle, and I'm hoping this is not a dangerous drug that has invaded our community... Anyone know what it is????

        Did anyone find out what the A672 pill was? I found one in a disturbing place as well.

              I think it's possible that you're wrong with that identification.

              I own a small 'tic-tac' style container of pills clearly marked "A 672" (ask me for a picture of the container and the pill), and they are in fact a generic 'Lactaid' replacement for lactose intolerant people. Just a simple lactase tablet ... nothing too scary about that. I think that the brand Lactaid uses Mannitol instead, which almost doubles the price of the product ... but, I digress

              I bought the 125-pill bottle from Costco (a huge warehouse store) last year and it came with a little plastic 1"x2"x1/4" clear plastic container with a pop-open lid that slides into the lower container. I have a good feeling that there is nothing unique about this thing at all -- it's probably used for lots of things.

                  I too have recently come across this same tic-tac bottle of white pills in a disterbing place, I don't think it is just a lactaid because what are the chances of all these different people suddenly finding them in the bushes, resteruants, hidden in kids rooms, and othe areas. Has this "Lactaid" just recently become popular to people who just happen to loose, or leave them behind in obscur places. Is it at all possible that they are something else... I'm only asking because I found them in my son's room hidden inside a sock on his bedroom floor under the bed.

                  Please help me identify this pill:
                  Oblong
                  Approx. 1mm In lenght
                  White
                  Imprinted on one side:A 762
                  Completely smooth on other side, No imprint or markings.
                  Does someone recognize this?

                    I have also found a small tic tac container full of white oval pills that read "A 672" on one side and nothing on the other. This is definitly an "A" not an "R". I doesn't look like the Spironolactone. The "A" looks just like the "A" in this font. Somebody droped them in my restaurant.

                        it is lactaid, I take it twice a day. oval shaped pill, flat on one side with a clear A 762. People that take lactaid don't think of it as a drug, like prescriptions, but rather is an inexpensive food additive. If I lose my pills, it's not like I'm going to have a serious medical issue and the generic A762 pills are inexpensive.

                        It's either that or lactose interolerance causes memory lapse...maybe there's a connection?

                          Thanks username.

                          And I love your 'username' - great!

                          I consider this one unofficially confirmed, and your post is the 'icing on the cake' so to speak.

                          The professional databases lag so far behind and don't document all the OTC meds, so we depend on all of us to find them and share what we know.

                          And we thank you for sharing!
