One bottle says Simbastatin 10mg tab NOR and the refill says Simbastatin 10mg tab ZYD
The one with the ZYD is pink and say ZA20 on the pill and the other one,NOR, is white,round and has a 10 on it. Are these the same?

Those are just abbreviations for the names of the manufacturers of those particular tablets.

For example, the ZYD stands for Zydus Pharmaceuticals.


Are there any other questions or comments?
