pravastatin 40mg

round, light green pill; numbers 7202 on one side -- number 93 on other side ## Pravastatin 40 mg...got white pill for years now the bottle has a round green pill 7202 on one side and 93 on the other. I this from another company or country? ## This tablet is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 40mgs of Pravastatin, which is used to help lower cholesterol. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and joint/muscle aches. Dauber, yes, it is a generic, so your pharmacy will not always provide you with the same tablet, depending on which company was offering the cheapest price, when they needed to restock their supply. Is there anything else I can help with?

pravastatin

Has anyone been harmed by using pravastatin? ## I recently had a 2nd MI and was put on Crestor in hospital, sent home w/script for Pravastatin 80 mgs. I am 6 days post starting this statin and for 4 days have had severe lower back pain and lower abdominal pain severe enough to go to ER as well as taking a half tab of Vicodin to ease the pain enough to partially function. There were only 2 new meds added to my normal regime since 4/15/10. I am getting this severe pain within 3 hours of the once a day dosage so am inclined to think it is caused by the statin. Have not been able to tolerate any form of statins for well over 10 years but my doctor was insistant while in the hopsital. Am close to stopping this med and will discuss with my family doctor today. Anyone else have or had this sit...
