Your doctor will have prescribed medication for you because he feels that is it the right medication for your condition.
Legislation now makes it compulsory for a pharmacist to substitute your original medicine with a generic medicine. However you do not have to have the alternative.
If your doctor writes on the prescription "NO SUBSTTUTION" or YOU forbid the change the pharmacist may not dispense the generic.
Some generic medications have proved effective for patients , but in some cases you may experience different side affects and see a different response level.
We often have taken a long while to find the most effective medication, look after your health.
