... they useda different generic then Actavis. I now live in an area with no Walmats and my Rx was filled with the Actavis brand. I have notived a big diff in the effect, it seemsas though it is much less effective! Any others have this prob? or maybe I got a bad batch???
Hey LB, The government allows a 10% difference between a generic and the original medication. Thus one generic you take may be 10% stronger v. the other generic which may be 10% weaker. Thus, you are taking 20% less medication... theoretically. I have had to switch from CVS to Target as the prices are just unbelieveably cheaper even with prescription insurance, and I have found that when they use different generics I have a problem. I have requested the Target pharmacist to try and get me the brand that worked better for me, and every time they get me the brand that I was using at CVS. Even with the refills, they respect my wishes and get me the brand that I prefer. With that being said, you might want to ask your new pharmacist to get you the brand that you prefer. good luck, and I hope that you can find the right brand.
