Thanks for that Kitt. I think from now on, I'm going to request Zispin. It's nice sometimes having a medication that just dissolves on your tongue. Rather than thinking of it as another tablet too take. Plus it does seem to work slightly better, and perhaps because of the way it is dispersed on your tongue, it maybe absorbed better. I still can't understand why there is such a huge difference between the other 2 brands.
I suppose, it's kind of like inhalors. Salbutamol 3M inhalors work better if your really struggling to een breathe in. Where as Ventolin works better if your only slightly asthmatic. Both spray inhalors, both give the same drug. But there is a slight difference in there design that makes all the difference.I guess this could be the same with oral medication.
