Brief Answer: Considerations Detailed Answer: Hello and thank you for submitting your question. Changes in pill color/shape/size can occur when suppliers change. This can be especially common when generic medicines are used. There is nothing wrong or significantly different with the generic formula or changes in the pill color/shape/size, it is still the same FDA approved medicine with the same effectiveness. As long as you are using a reputable pharmacy, there should be no problems. Again, thank you for submitting your question, I hope this shed some light on the change in your husband's medication appearance. Dr. G
