I found a white round pill in my sons room it says 54 411. What is it?

A round white 10.00mm pill with the imprint 54 411 on the front is 8mg of Buprenorphine hydrochloride (sublingual) (made by Roxane Laboratories).

Buprenorphine hydrochloride is a narcotic analgesic that is used to treat pain, opiate dependence, and chronic pain. Abuse of this drug may lead to psychological or physical dependence.

This prescription-only medication may pose a risk to an unborn fetus, and should be used only under a doctor's supervision.

TwinCities.com reports that the rising legal use of prescription opiate painkillers has been leading to increased addiction to these drugs. There are more deaths, increases in related crimes, and more people seeking treatment for substance abuse issues.
