white oblong pill with zc45 on one side

It's says that it's Pravachol , but it doesn't look like it did last time and the pharmacy has messed up before so I don't know if I should take it? ## Hi, Jam! How are you? The tablet with the ZC 45 marking contains 20mgs of Pravastatin, it's a generic for Pravachol, which is most commonly used to help lower cholesterol. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and joint/muscle aches. Learn more Pravachol details here. Is there anything else I can help with?

If you need to convert a cholesterol reading from milligrams per decilitre to millimoles per litre- Simply divide your cholesterol level by 38.6598. *In regards to your title Provocal"- did you mean to say Pravachol?
