My Rx omeprazole only had small white beads in the capsule but when I bought walmarts otc brand it also had a solid white pill inside the capsule with some beads added. Is this normal?

I would say they are made by a different Pharmaceutical Company. When I get medication to this day same drug but they just happen to have gotten it from a different Drug Company and the pills look so different.
If you pick up at the pharmacy they will usually put a sticker on the side saying , this medication may look different but is the same.
Hope this helps.
