I found a large white oval pill with 93 on one side and 8119 on the other. What is it?

Not Medical Advice: Pill imprint 93 8119 has been identified as Famciclovir 500 mg.

Famciclovir is used to treat the symptoms of herpes zoster (also known as shingles), a herpes virus infection of the skin. It is used to treat and suppress herpes labialis (cold sores) and recurrent episodes of genitąl herpes infection.

This medicine is also used to treat recurrent herpes virus infections of the mucous membranes (lips and mouth) and genitąls in HIV-infected patients. Although famciclovir will not cure genitąl herpes or herpes zoster, it does help relieve the pain and discomfort and helps the sores heal faster.

This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.
