I just read about this in the NY Times and am glad you are highlighting it. With many health providers requiring generics (or you pay the whole price for brand names), this situation is frightening. Pharma can easily update the labels and should be required to do so if it will solve this problem.

Wendy, I had no idea about this. What a dilemma--and tragedy. Congress and the FDA would never want to anger seniors in our current political and fiscal climate, so I don't see anything happening soon (if ever) to remedy this situation. Caveat emptor! XX

that's horrible! Another problem I see is that generics are often not equivalent to the brand name. When I was switched to one generic, it made me dizzy and unable to drive or work, although the brand was fine. So I had to switch back at great cost. We have had others that were simply ineffective compared to the brand. So this is yet another glitch.


Great post! Perfectly understandable about the generics..definitely have to keep your priorities straight. I’ve learned so much from reading your blog.
