Yes, pravastatin and pravastatin sodium are one in the same.
I hope that I have answered your question to your complete satisfaction; if I have, I would very much appreciate your "accepting" my answer; bonuses are always appreciated. If you have anything else you would like to ask prior to accepting, I would be happy to answer.
Why does the pill look different? This is the first time I have recieved it being referred to as Pravastatin Sodium
and the pill is different.
Were you receiving the brand, Pravachol, or a generic before? You may have been given a generic from a different manufacturer than before. If you provide me the imprint codes on both side of the pill you have, I will be happy to verify whether the correct drug was dispensed. There is no need to post this last question on Just Answer and pay twice since it is a follow-up to your initial question.
