Researchers please note:  I phoned the Poison Control Center at:  
1-800-222-1222.  They found nothing in their data base(s) with the
description posted in the question.  They've been able to identify
medication to me before but this time nothing came up.

Chewy295 - they suggested you take the pill to your nearest pharmacy
and see if they can identify it.

Best regards,

Hi Chewy295,

I believe you have a pill of 20 mg potassium chloride manufactured by
Warrick Pharmaceuticals.  I checked the eFacts database, and the
picture and description of the pill match what you have described
above (white pill, oblong, scored on one side, imprint W-1714).

Potassium chloride is a supplement to increase the potassium level in
the body.  Here's the information from the USPDI Advice for the
Patient (available from the National Library of Medicine's MedlinePlus

It would help to know a little more about why you need to identify the
pill. Have you been prescribed it by a doctor? Are you taking part in
a clinical trial? What packaging does it come with?

All of these little questions would help someone better answer your query.
