Question
Cannot read imprint on small white round pill. Has V on one side.  Other side is scored with two numbers on either side of score.  Looks like 39/-0 but cant find in any identifier source.  Please help. Suspect prednisone

Answer
Hi Sally,
Since thousands of tablets are manufactured with similar looks the only way to identify with guarantee is with the shape, colour, size and imprints.
There are no pills that are white round, have a V on one side and 39/0 on the other.Pills with V on one side and any other identifier on the other side and about 15.
I regret I cannot definitely identify your pill.
All the best
