Is this a generic for clonidine?
I take clonidine 0.1 and I got it renewed and was given Purepac r127 and it is making me a zombie?
Added 25 Jan 2015:
I could not find anything on Purepac R127 as a generic for Clonidine and since it is making me feel dizzy, no energy and feel like I am going to fall over I thought maybe they gave me the wrong script. Thanks.
I have been taking generic Clonidine .1 mg 3 X daily (manufactured by Qualitest) for over 8 years. In February 2015, my pharmacy sent me my 90 day supply but by a different manufacturer.. Purepac. Two days after I started this med, I started having skipped heartbeats... and a few days after that they had progressed to the point where I thought I was having a heart attack and went into the ER. I complained to my pharmacy and they finally sent me a supply of my old medication by Qualitest... 4 days after I started back on the my old med, the missed heartbeats resolved and I have been fine since. I don't care what my doctor or the FDA says ~ generic drugs are cheap for a reason ~ they can be sub-standard and even dangerous. I will never take any drug manufactured by Purepac again!
