Melatonin, like other supplements, comes in different kinds of pills, depending on the manufacturer. I have put differing brands of supplements in one bottle, myself.
The best thing to do is ASK the friend, when you wonder.
Trust is a very important componant of friendship.
If you have to ask an internet board rather than her, what is the friendship based on?
"Saving" her from herself?
Looking for something you know she would lend you may seem harmless from your point of view, but suspecting her of drug abuse and not asking her about it directly, does seem underhanded to me.
Isn't your fears about her drug abuse something friends can talk about? If she lies about it, she is NOT ready for any help or intervention.
People have to honestly own a problem before they can deal with it.
I also think you should go without any item until/unless the other person is there to lend it. Taking what you want, assuming she would give it to you is crossing the line of trust. What if she put her prescription drug or something harmful in the bottle and you were to get it, not knowing? It is hers to do with as she chooses, not yours. So no wonder others mentioned this.
Trust is a very important issue in addiction and recovery.
