What is a round white pill with "v 2355" on one side?

I found this pill in my son's room.

From your description, it should be Fiorcet which contains Acetaminophen; Butalbital; Caffeine. It's antixiolitic/hypnotic medicine which is similar to Valium.


Answer by  MedStudent01 (1131)

The pill is a combination of butalbital, APAP, and caffeine, known as Fioricet. APAP is a fancy description for tylenol. Butalbital is a barbiturate that can be used to depress the central nervous system. This pill is for patients suffering with tension or migraine headaches. Either your son has headaches or has been conned for pain meds.

This is a generic for Fiorcet, which contains acetaminophen, butalbital and caffeine. It is most often used to treat migraine headaches.

Your doctor or your pharmacist will be able to identify this pill for you. After you have the information you'll want to take some time to consider how you're going to discuss this with your son. This is a learning opportunity for both of you. Breathe, reconsider and remember he's becoming a man. Good luck to both of you.
