What is a white round pill with TEVA on one side and 54 with a line through the middle of the pill on the otherside?

A round white pill with the imprint TEVA on the front, and 54 on the back of it is 10mg of Buspirone hydrochloride (made by Teva Pharmaceuticals).

Buspirone hydrochloride is a miscellaneous anxiolytic, sedative and hypnotic that is used to treat anxiety, panic disorder, and certain issues of male arousal. There is a low risk of abuse with this drug.

This prescription-only medication is not proven to be a risk to an unborn fetus, but should be used only under a doctor's supervision.

eHealthMe.com reported just recently that a study found Buspirone was effective in 70% of women that took the drug, but only 30% for men.
