I wasn't able to find an exact match. Check out the URL below with a 446 pill (oxycodone)

There are lots of different brands of oxycodone - Percocet, Roxicet, Endocet...

Hi Linda,

 

Oxycodone IS the generic name for Oxycontin. You can read about the drug here in the drugs database. Sometimes medications have the same base, for instance, Oxycodone is opiate based, but it may be mixed with another medication, such as Percocet is a combination of Oxycodone and Acetaminophen, Darvocet is Propoxypheen Napsylate (another opiate) and Acetaminophen combined. You can find out more about medications commonly prescribed for pain here in the drugs database. If you have any questions about your husband's dosage or any side effects from medications, the best person to ask is either your doctor or your pharmacist. While online sites are great resources for information, they can not take the place of your doctor's solid medical advice.

 

Take care and stay in touch! Let us know how you and your husband are doing!

The pill actually says 446 on one side and ETH on the other. That is a type of 30mg roxicodone (instant release oxycodone) and its made by the company Ethex.
