I have been taking them for years; prefer the original but can't find.

I just got some 8 mos ago or so from Prime Mail.
Since it is a controlled med., have to go to Dr's next week and get the script and bring it to Rite Aid or Price Chopper Pharmacy(New York State).
I've always speicified Tabs not caps.
good Luck!

I went to pick up my script for the tabs and I looked first before I left the office. they wrote capsules.
I don't want capsules and I have never gotten them. Took it back and Insisted on tabs and I said I know they still come in tabs. she looked it up and I ahd to wait a ttl of 30 mins. for the old script to get re written/new script for tabs.
I took it to PC Pharmacy and spoke w/ the Pharmacist. said if you can't get them as written-Tabs- pls, call and I will go to another Pharmacy. No problem we have them here.MFGR: NDC- Qualitest; prev. Mfgr: West-Ward distrib.

Hi Maura,

Thanks for the info on choosing between tabs and capsules. I know that capsules can sometimes be harder to swallow or in many cases may be more or less effective depending on what fillers they add in comparison to what's in the tablet version. So in my opinion it's always best to go with what you know is going to work despite the added inconveniences of maintaining such preferences. And just a reminder to others who may be reading, always double check your script before leaving the pharmacy. They are prone to make mistakes just as much as anyone else on a busy schedule, but more often than not, a pharmacy will work with you if they want your business.

Hope this helps!
