Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be 10 mg tablet

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Labetalol usually is available in strengths of 100 mg, 200 mg or 300 mg. So its unlikely to be a 10 mg pill. The pill is most likely having the number to determine the number of pills in the single bottle. You may upload some good quality images of both the bottle and pill from both front and back to confirm or rule out any mistake by the pharmacist.

Wishing you best of health
