Q: what kind of drug is a white pill with an x or a + on one side?

A: Unfortunately, with a very simple imprint like this, it's pretty much impossible to know for sure what it is. There are at least two pharmaceutical drugs which carry this imprint: one contains 400 mg aspirin / 35 mg caffeine and the other contains 60 mg theophylline / 12.5 mg ephedrine / 100 mg guaifenesin. If it is not a pill professionally produced by a pharmaceutical company, it seems possible that it is supposed to be ecstasy (mdma), the most common illegal substance found in plain white pills with simple imprints. However, there's no way to know whether this is the case unless you have an ecstasy testing kit available to you.
