i notice when i take the rectangular ones, i don't need as many as i do the round pills or that it keeps the pain away a lot longer then the round pills do.
Hmmm. Interesting question. My husband both take methadone, & we get a generic because of our co-payment the is only &5, & non-generic is $25. Well we got ours at Walgreens,round-white, worked great. Then they changed the generic company & the ones they gave us were worth a dang! The company we got our from was Roxan. They are carried byOsco Drug, & CVS Pharmacy. Infact, CVS'S pharmacy told me they will order from whatever company you feel works the best for you. We also take Xanax, & was always getting them from Purepac. One month after we picked up our scripts they were smaller & lighter blue. I called the phamatist to make sure first of all that we had the right prescription. He said yes, just a differnt company. Well, they didn't work! So I called him back & he told me he was very sorry & he could & would order from any company we wanted. Hope this helps. Forget Walgreens.
They have such a big volume, they are only getting what the big boys order. Oh, I know this is getting long, but also, my CVS pharmatists told me that we aren't the first ones to say some generics work & some don't. Hope this helps a little bit . By the way, never had a square Methadone. Good luck Mary
I have also taken the round and rectangular 10mg methadones. I noticed the same exact thing. I believe different companies use different qualities of the ingredients. According to reliable sources the us imports 80% of its active ingrdients from overseas... this could easily explain the difference. Different countries use different quality ingredients...
hi m.rio,I think the rectangals are better too.Sometimes if you go to a smaller pharmacy they will order the ones you prefer.I am on suboxone and xanax.I like the tablets in the suboxone better. The film feels like a chemical burn in my mouth. and my pharmacy orders the sandos brand for me instead of the round mylans.the gg238 ovals work best for me.I tryed all kinds of others and I stick with what works best...
