Day 2367 - I Need the Name Brand of a GENERIC!
If you take any prescription drugs, you probably are paying a lot more for a name brand than a generic equivalent.
The issue is that even generics are different. They are made by different companies, and have different inactive ingredients (like wax or color or coating) than a generic for the same purpose.
For the past couple of months, my pharmacy has had trouble getting me a certain manufacturers generic - because their competitors product gives me a rash!
I finally had to settle for another strength and had to have my doctor approve it before I could fill the prescription. Sheesh.
So - be careful and know that even generics are different under the covers!
YES they are. Its crazy how something small like a change in dye or one added ingredient can realy make a difference. It does though. All generics are not created equal!Post a Comment
