I would like to know if there is any difference between the two mentioned Pravastatin and if anyone has experienced different side effects between the two?

To answer your first question, they both contain the same amount of active ingredient (Pravastatin 40 mg), but there is a difference in the inactive ingredients which are listed.

The first light green tablet with imprint PB on one side and 8 on the other is manufactured by Accord (NDC 16729-010), and also contains:

- Croscarmellose Sodium
- Lactose Monohydrate
- Magnesium Oxide
- Magnesium Stearate
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
- D&C Yellow No. 10
- FD&C Blue No. 1
- Povidone

The second green pill with imprint APO on one side and PRA over 40 on the other side is manufactured by Apotex (NDC 60505-0170), and also contains:

- Croscarmellose Sodium
- Lactose Monohydrate
- Magnesium Stearate
- Microcrystalline Cellulose
- FD&C Blue No. 1
- Ferric Oxide Yellow

I personally cannot say whether there would be a difference in side effects between the two, as I am not prescribed this medication. But hopefully there should not be a noticeable difference since they are both technically the same drug. I hope this helps!
