I also found white pills labeled L 917, what are they

A capsule shaped white pill with the imprint L917 on the front is 500mg of Acetaminophen (made by American Sales Company).

Acetaminophen is a miscellaneous analgesic that is used to treat muscle pain, fever, sciatica, transverse myelitis, and pain. This medication is not proven to be a risk to an unborn fetus.

There is a low risk of abuse with this drug, however taking too much, or consuming alcohol with it in your system can lead to liver damage and even death.

The Pharmacy Times reported recently that 1-in-25 patients in two hospitals were given too much acetaminophen at least once during their stays, despite measures taken to control and monitor acetaminophen exposure.
