Day 2367 - I Need the Name Brand of a GENERIC!

Greetings, Bloggy Prescription Fillers!

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!
