can no longer afford to provide it under my insurance plan-- He gave me another brand by cygynus. I am a little afraid. About 1 year ago the generic paxil made by Apotek became unavailable. I tried mylan and auribonda with out success. Can't be sure i didn't have this cygynus but did't have much choice. anyone know if apotek is available again?
I don't know much about the different manufacturers of generic Paxil, but what did come to mind when I was reading your post was you might call around to other pharmacies that take your insurance and see if they have the generic brand you want. Might be worth a try.
Just a thought,
I was taking paxil 20mgs by glaxosmithkline and it was great..I think I was on paxil by teva ..before and it made me nervous..well, I was switched back to teva because glaxosmithkline discontinued producing the generic..or their thing ran out..I dont know how that works..but Im on the teva one as its cheaper ..and that is what they h ave..I was afraid because I am allergic to dyes and fillers and I looked up what was in glaxosmithkline and teva and dang..there is a whole lot more additives or inactive ingrediants in teva then glaxo... esp like red dye 40... I had an affect after taking it but it went away... I take a seizure meds and it notices every change... so who knows... I take this paxil or the generic at night because my stomach meds acid reducer i take in the morning makes me sleep..imagine that... I tried to change it to night and my dr wouldnt let me as I take two different kinds because I have barretts esophagus and have to take prilosec in the morning and zantac in the evening... the barrets is a precancerous condition of the esophagus... wow sounds crazy as I didnt have much pain or burning when this was discovered... it would have been a silent killer if I hadnt been sick and was checked out by a gastro dr... so Im on keppra a seizure drug in the morning and evening and then the paxil in the eveing and then the two acid reducers one in the morning and the other in the evening... I have anxiety disorder and major depression disorder which doesnt happen all the time..I only had that three times but the anxiety disorder happens more often esp when I have too much stress..Im 61 yrs old and taking care of my 84 yr old mother in law ..she is in an assisted living place but is calling on me all the time to assist her... it is the life of luxury but she still wants me to help her go to her apts ... it is very stressful... as she doesnt like helping herself at all... its hard when your old trying to take care of the old... and you have illness ..yourself... as you can see... need prayers so I can cope with this... and my meds work out... also keppra adds to the emotional roller coaster when there is stress or stomach upsets...
