small orange pill H 30

I have taken crestor for 15 years but just got a different size and color pill. Smaller than the usual deep red, with H on one side and 30 on the other - Is this crestor? ## Hello Deb, I honestly wasn't able to find a pill that matches your description but based off of what the crestor website shows they do not make a pill that matches your description. I believe that it may still be a rosuvastatin pill but since it's a 30mg and crestor only makes 5/10/20/40mg it may be a generic instead. I am a little worried that I wasn't able to find it. Does your medication label have a manufacturer listed or a labeler listed? If so I might be able to get a bit more information on the pill if you would like.

is crestor a blood thinner

I am having hip replacement surgery next week and am on Crestor medication.
