I have reviewed a number of internet-based pill-identifying programs with the information you have provided. One drug that comes very close to your description is the medication Thioguanine 40mg. This medication is manufactured by GSK, and has the imprint of WELLCOME U 3 B. It is a round, white table, and it is scored (a line through the middle).

This medication is indicated for the treatment of leukemia in the US. Without records, it is not possible to determine the exact medication you were taking. You should use this information only to have further conversation with your doctor until you can be sure which drug you were taking previously.
