I know there was already a thread with this subject, but I could not pull it up with the search feature.
I was recently switched to generic from Colazal
Anyone know offhand who I'd be up against if I tried to remain on Colazal - my insurance company or Caremark (mail order prescription supplier)?
I've just ran out of the brand name and been taking the generic, and so far I can't know anything, but I've had a couple of "twinges" of pain where I think my problem was mostly (transverse).
and I had a strange bowel movement like I haven't had in a while - totally pulverized and massive (sorry)
So, it's too early for me to know, but I guess it's not too early for me to start thinking what I would have to do to get put on the brand name only. I wouldn't want to end up in bad shape because I got switched and then figure it out after the fact.
