Hi , I was wondering if anyone else that has been on generic Paxil for a long time noticed that some of the generic brands just don't work well?
I have been on generic Paxil for 16 years or so.. I was on the generic from Walmart which is made by something labs. I've had major problems with this brand.. It totally stopped working.. I was having bad symptoms like horrible panic/anxiety attacks which sent me to the hospital a couple of times and general feeling of just not feeling well..
I had every blood test for anything that would cause anxiety and all were negative. I even had a CAT scan of my adrenal glands and that was normal. My cortisol levels were up just a little bit but not to bad. I think they were 2 over the normal.
It was like I was going through a withdraw.. I did some research online and found that some people were saying that they were having problems with some generics so I decided to try Walgreens generic (Zydus) and within a week I felt so much better. They use a different manufacturer than Walmart. I was taking 2 20mg tablets every day.. I got medicaid recently and medicaid won't pay for the 2 20mg tablets but will pay for the 40mg tablets so I said ok.
Well, Seems like since I've been on the 40 mg tablet, Seems like that is not working as well as the 2 20mg tablets.. Do you think this is possible?
It has to be, Considering how I have been feeling again..
I had my husband go to Kmart to get me a prescription from them.. They use the manufacturer "Mylan" I'm going to try those instead to see if they work better.. Has anyone else noticed the difference between the generic brands?
Thanks for reading!!
