I used to get 25 mg capsules from Apotex Corporation. My pharmacist filled it this time with Teva manufactured. They look different and are packaged each in separate foil pouches, which is a PAIN! is the Cyclosporine USP Modified that he filled it with any different that that made by Apotex which does NOT say USP Modified?
Is there a difference between Teva and Apotex manufactured Cyclosporine capsules?

Teva is good manufacturer as well. USP mean unique selling point. I think that of the dose is similar you can take this drug
My trazodone by Teva comes in the same size bottle as Trazodone by Apotex. Both pills were 50 mm, but the ones from Apotex were half the size and made me sick: dizzy, anxious, jittery and nauseous. Really sick!
The ones from Teva have provided a miracle cure from my long-standing insomnia. I used to run bad tapes of past misfortunes; now they don’t even start. My problem is that Walgreen’s has three times ordered the wrong pills even though my file has been flagged for “Teva only.” The Pharmacy has been unable to locate the replacement Teva yet, so I am in day 4 of combined poisoning (from the two Apotex pills I took) and withdrawal symptoms because I’m no longer getting the trazodone that I need.
Btw: my pills have never been foil-wrapped. The latest batch of pills from Apotex were now the same size as the ones from Teva, but apparently not reformulated since they still make me sick.
