The physician identifies the white tablets as fosinopril 40 mg and the cream-colored tablets as irbesartan/hydrochlorothiazide 300-12.5mg.

The physician had given Mr. Nelson irbesartan/hydrochlorothiazide samples and instructed him to discontinue the fosinopril, but the patient forgot to take the fosinopril out of his pill organizer.
