It bears the code ZA2023. I just want to make sure this is really simvastatin and not a mistake by the pharmacist since before now, this was always a pink pill.
Pill imprint ZA 23 has been identified as Simvastatin 80mg.
Simvastatin is used in the treatment of high cholesterol; high cholesterol, familial heterozygous; hyperlipoproteinemia type iia, elevated ldl; high cholesterol, familial homozygous; hyperlipoproteinemia (and more), and belongs to the drug class statins. Not for use in pregnancy.

Please double check the imprint on the tab & be sure its the same, please, however please double check it also with your doc/pharmacist.
