Pliva 441 Pill

Pliva 441 pill has a special shape, easily recognizable, though not as easily described. It is a trapezoid, divided by a score into two halves on one side (this side is indexed with PLIVA and 441 placed on each half separately), and into three equal parts by two scores on the other (each part is marked with "50").

Each Pliva 441 contains 150mg trazodone hydrochloride, which is an antidepressant with anxiolytic and hypnotic properties. And the scores enable you to divide the pill into smaller strengths of 50mg or 75mg (very convenient and helpful feature, we must admit).

Pliva 441 trazodone pills are normally used for treatment of depression, and sometimes as an anti-anxiety medicine, and, due to their sedative qualities, even as a pain reliever.

Pliva 470 Pill

Pliva 470 is a little round pill, pink-colored, debossed with PLIVA 470 index on one side. The other side has a score, with no letters or numbers. It is a propranolol pill, which belongs to the family of special heart medications called beta blockers. Generic propranolol is produced by a number of manufacturers, but Pliva 470 pills can be set apart in this row, as each pill contains 60 mg of propranolol hydrochloride - a strength which cannot be found among other manufacturers' products. E.g., this strength fills the gap in Mylan's propranolol products: Mylan 184 (40 mg) and Mylan 185 (80 mg).

Pliva 314

PLIVA 314 is 4 mg Cyproheptadine HCl pill, also known as brand name Periactin. It can be listed as a sedative, though sedatives should be divided into three large groups: sleeping pills, anti-anxiety medications and antistaminic (anti-allergic) drugs. Pliva 314 pills belong to the last category, being used mainly for treatment of rhinitis and hay fever. As for description, it is as plain as usual: little, white, round, indexed "PLIVA 314" on one side, the other side is scored.
