The color scheme is the same for all manufacturers of warfarin in the US (with a possible variation in the shade). The shape of the tablet indicates the company that makes it. Check your tablets each time you get them from the pharmacy to be sure you have the right strength. Ask your pharmacist if the color or shape of your pill changes or if you have any questions.
