More info on Generic Parnate issue

Posted by medtrier on August 19, 2010, at 13:28:16


I am wondering if anyone has any info about generic parnate, as far as how it compares to the name brand. I have heard a lot of claims that generic parnate (along with other specific generics), don't work nearly as well as the name-brand, have more side effects, etc. A lot may have to do with this whole "20 percent rule" for bioavailabity. Generic parnate has only been around for 4 years.

I started to feel a little better on 60 mg./day of the generic (following 3 weeks of almost nothing on the 30 mg./ day). I've been on 60/day for a week. The doc says I should keep at this dose for 4 more weeks.

The generic would cost 200 dollars, whereas name brand would be 300. but 100 dollars is a small price to pay to finally feel good for a change. I've gone through so many meds with no success. And who knows? Maybe it's because some of them were generic
