Patient :I was prescribed pain meds and there were 2 kinds inside, yellow oval and round white. I would like to know if they are the same, maybe just different companies. If not, should I take them back to have the yellow switched to the white?(they are the ones I usually get) is this considered a med error or I this common to switch them out?
