5N:Sooo...I hope this makes sense, UGH... I did some research, as much as possible, have had an awful headache the past several days but think I have stabilized finally. This darn generic has made it hard to find a tolerable place to be as far as bead counting. First had too many w/d symptoms so I added beads, then was too strong causing headaches like I used to get when I first took Cymbalta. So... reduced the beads by 3 and "voila" headache free. So true, you have to really listen to your body in this process!! Not impressed with the generic version at all!
As you said, the generic Wellbutrin by Teva was discontinued after many complaints, but did you know this???... The REASON for the problems were because even though the patent on Wellbutrin had expired, the enteric coating patent had NOT!!! Meaning the Teva created enteric coating was less than par and was releasing way too much medication at a time causing terrible side effects! Now of course I'm wondering if the same or similar could be true for Teva's generic cymbalta?! FISHING HAT: how would one go about finding this out?? Even though I am hoping to crossover to Prozac, I hope we can figure this out for all the others out there on the generic or going on generic. If I was staying on it , I would definitely have my doc contact my insurance to tell them I can not take the generic and to please approve the name brand. More and more I do not trust the generics no matter what they Say!!! Hope this made sense, I am having so much trouble concentrating...such a disgrace! Why does it always have to be "wealth before health" when it comes to big pharma?!
Hope you are feeling well today and are successful in your next big step on this journey! Take care and thank you so much for all you do on this forum!
