fluvastatin na
gold/brown lescol ku 118 ## I'm trying to help my Mom with taking her prescriptions, and she had an un-labled bottle full of these pills and she doesn't have any idea what they are. They are capsules, one side is white, the other is gold/tan. The marking on it says KU 118. Have any ideas?

Thanks for your help! Austin ## Theese are not OTC they are 20 mg Omeprazole
