This pill dont match that picture. The letters n numbers arent printed on it like in the pic, they are carved into the pill. Would it still be the same?

Hi, yes the pill is still as Rajive identified. Watson have changed the appearance of the pill so the imprint is now embedded into the tablet. The letters curve around the top of the pill and the numbers around the bottom. Unfortunately Watson have not updated their website yet with the new image, however if I find one I will post the link separately.
