I just received my new prescription for my Fluoxetine HCL 40mg capsules. The manufacturer has changed to TEVA and of course the pills have changed..BUT..the pills say on the label they are org & blue which is correct and say "93 7178" on the pills (both sides). What they Actually say are "TEVA" on one side and "7198" on the other. I called my pharmacy (CVS) and they confirmed this is what was put out and assumably is correct but they will get back to me on this anomoly. I took the first one last night and it seemed my heart was jumpy. This may have been my imagination or a coincidence. Has anyone had any experience with this situation?

According to the pill identifier, the pills should look like the orange and blue capsule with 92 7178 on both sides. Sounds like the phramacuetical company screwed up. I would take your medicine as prescribed but definitely follow up with the pharmacist.
