PRESCRIPTION PILL: White oval big pill With imprint RX 718?

Scroll to the bottom of this page to see ...
I have no idea where the posters above gathered their information but in multiple search engine attempts for RX 718, this is the closest I came to and NOW of the searches produced anything near what the above posters are providing. Just a guess but it is possible that the particular pill you have is a generic of the one listed at the page I'm providing thus the "RX" vs "NL" on the pill found here. The white oval description fits though.

May I suggest that you do some more research. I will add a link or you could call a hospital or pharmacist. If you go to this link you will find that the pill, Ogestrel, does not resemble in any way the pill the you described. If this is of immediate concern you could ask an emergency room or even the poison control center....experts are at the poison center, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 1-800-222-1222
