I am new to this forum and the reason I joined was to tell all of you of my recent expeerince with a generic drug. My history - for the last 10 years I have suffered with gerd. about 7 years ago I was prescribe da drug called Pantoloc (40mg per day). It's called something different i the US,
In february of this year I started to have symptoms which I hadn't experienced since early 2003. I didn't know what was going on. Symptoms - belching, bloating, pain in my abdomen, pain in my back, difficulty swallowing, slush in my throat ,pain in my esophagus and a continouos feeling of having an empty stomach. I went to my doctor and he changed my medication from generic pantoloc to Nexium. After two days the difference was incredible. Although unconfirmed, there appears to be an issue with the generic drug.
Let me know if anyone else out there has had a similar experience.
