You need to sit down with your doctor and discuss this. My doctor knows I want generics so he gives me things that are close to the new meds OR he gives me the generics.
If these meds are for fibro, read back posts and Fibro 101 and see if there are suggestions from members as to other things to try. I don't take any of the "high power" drugs for my pain. I use gentle exercise, gentle massages and supplements along with over the counter pain killers and this has helped me. I'm not pain-free but I have the pain under control and can live my life. I know we are all different but it seems that doctors are always trying to push prescriptions at us and we snap them up. My doctor wanted me to take Lyrica or Savella and I turned him down. My regimen is working for me.
If I had cancer or some life-threatening illness, then I would take exactly what the doctor/specialist prescribed but since they don't even know what causes fibro, it's more of a guessing game as to what will work for you. What works for one person doesn't necessarily work for another. Only you can tell if the medication you are taking is giving your your money's worth. I do know that I would not order drugs off the Internet. That's my opinion.
