I take Orphenadrine Tabs for my migraine headaches. My prescription insurance has changed and I now have received a different tab 100 MG in a white round with an imprint of G 2011. They are not working. In the past I have been taking an oval green and white with an imprint of SZ 491, which has always worked. Why would one work and not the other?
Maybe one is name brand and the other a generic, or maybe both are generics but from different companies. The Docs, and the pharmacists would like us to believe that all pills are created equal. But how can that be? I say they aren't. Usually once you walk out the door, you're stuck with what you have. If you check them in the store, sometimes you can get the brand you want. Other times it's tuff luck. If you can get your doc on your side that can help. I've been having this problem with 2 of my meds, and one is a heart med. You can also call the FDA and report the company who makes the pill that doesn't work. Up above in the Blue space is a Pill Identifier tool. Use that to get the manufacturer of the pill that doesn't work. Once you know that, at least you can avoid them in the future. IMO this is very serious problem. Unfortunately, it's being allowed to happen all too often. One reason is because "we" consumers are doing nothing about it.
