Even though Kaname's tablet seems more like a δ to me than an ε. But the fanbook mentions that as Ω αnd Σ. Perhaps there is a distance between the chapters and the fanbook(the page that you gave us is from vol. 1) so I can guess that the more the story progress the more philosophized Hino may have became with it. (if you have other ideas add to that)...
And also thanks for the extra page giving us Zero cracking that window. He has become rather powerful.
I tend to think that the horses did not startle to him because he falls but because his vampire side awakens more hungry. (you understand the difference right? like his vampire side is coming more and more into light, much stronger).
About the tablets ... yes the pic was from volume 1 so maybe Hino wanted to emphasise (for the readers) that Zero is a vampire so he needs the same tablets as Kaname who is a vampire or as you mentioned she didn't have all the details in her mind from the very beginning.
The point is that they probably are taken different tablets (fan-book is a reliable source lol) and I thought that maybe Kaname is using an experimental type of blood tablets ( he did that in the past) and that's why he is the only one who use 06Ω and seems to be the only one affected now, cuz Sara is aiming to reduce his powers.
The fact is that Kaname loses his powers whereas Zero's vampire side is now stronger than ever (cracking windows, paper cut, startle horses).
And let me add something else ... we also saw in previous chapters Kaname cracking windows when he was driving nuts. So Zero's same reaction/ability maybe connected with Kaname's blood also ( another hint of how strong is Zero now?).
Anyway our big problem is Kaname
And I wonder why Kaname using tablets and he didn't take enough blood from Yuuki? Is there any probability that he want Yuuki to be as strong as possible so he restrained himself ? (or Yuuki is preggy and he knows it? hahaha! just a joke from the previews).
A! and another thing that came in my mind ... why Kaname didn't kill Aidou dono by the same way he wiped off the senate and he forced himself to use the anti-vampire sword, which obviously hurt him? Is this another indication of losing powers?
About blood tablets :
If you remember , Kaname was shown taking a lot of blood tablets just after the death of his " parents . " ( chapter 48 ) Before taking a human sacrifice that was prepared for him .( Most probably Seiren . A Level D created and stabilized by Kaname and now his servant . As he usually do not want to drink from humans . )
The Night Class commented they invented the blood tablets near the start of the story .
This insinuates there at least two types of blood tablets : ones taken ( and maybe invented ) by Kaname . Ones invented by the Night Class ( the popular ones ).
It is posible at the start of the story , the mangaka didn't expect to make the blood tablets theme important . But after needing to prolong the plot , she make changes to making two different types .
If Sara wanted to affect just Kaname , she only had to alter the content of the type Kaname uses . So the rest of vampires wouldn't be affected .
I think Kaname had not drank blood from Yuuki to avoid draining her again before she gets in shape . Remember , Kaname had drank a lot of Yuuki's blood before allowing her to drank from him . And she almost drained all his blood during the past memories of him . Maybe he thought to give her a break to replenish her blood again until drinking from her .
Zero's power are increased due to having drank from 2 purebloods and devoured his brother . Now he is more vampire than before . His powers are almost pureblood level now . But continues to be a Level D vampire .
Why Kaname killed Lord Aido with Rido's anti - vampire weapon . Could be because he had it at hand when he did it . Or maybe as you said , is related to him being now less powerful due to being afected by the adultered blood tablets .

Since Zero is a vampire hunter, he hunts and kills vampires right? so he drinks their blood as well, so even if his tablets were spoiled by sara, that wouldn't affect him, right? (since his hunger is a little satisfied every time he hunts) So we can't know for sure if sara is targeting only kaname yet..
i agree with your theories in the previews posts however, they do make sense.
As Juliet said before , when Zero attacks vampires with Bloody Rose they turned to dust . Because it is an anti - vampire weapon . For regular vampires even minimal contact with an anti - vampire weapon could be fatal . Zero most probably uses the popular blood tablet brand . The ones not dampered by Sara apparently . The question is : Why zero could tolerate blood tablets when he can't before ?
Sara has a personal interest to get Kaname out of her way . She knows he is the original Vampire King . Her desire is to became Vampire Queen . If he wanted to reclaim the throne again , there are only a few vampires who could try to be against . Even those are unable to do this without the help of vampire hunters . Because only a few of the Kuran royal family could use anti - vampire weapons . So the opposition would be almost non - existent . Sara knows if she tried to fight , she would lost . So she could developed the idea of adultering Kaname's blood tablets as an easy way to win .
