I was forced into taking Caraco Norco. This cheap manufacturer should be banned. Mallinkrodt lasted all 6 hours. Caraco when there was some relief with 2 pills lasted only 3 hours. This is how patients O.D. How do we get this ineffective brand banned? Can we get a legal case going against pharmacies for pushing ineffective meds? We have to pay for these meds, we are patients suffering and should be able to trust our medication is good quality. This has to stop.

The whole premise behind brand vs generic is when the patent runs out for brand a generic is made by the same or another company . The absolute rule from the beginning of generic's is that the are suppose to be exactly equivalent to the brand name. Something extremely dangerous is happening with what some of the cheap companies are being allowed to do. Mallinkrodt generics seem to be one of the safest , most expensive , of course . Money is what is behind all of this . If someone who had a great deal of money to spare , were to find the right legal chemist or way to dissect the ineffective cheap generic's & pick an excellent rated generic company & even the brand name , too- the finding would be the only way to prove this is happening & take these unethical companies down . Going against these companies & even having proof , would take a great deal of time & money . Who would do that ? Until some medical giant brings this to what ever Gov't agency? We have to pay the price in cash that not many people have , Ask your Dr. For a written RX for no substitutions when you find the right generic. Fight our own personal war of get our clean medicine by reading & asking what is the most expensive generic ? Take that one 1st. This is the only start to this dangerous war of people's health vs money. Keep speaking out ! Don't lose your Dr. Becsuse of it!! Their are too few of those . They do not know much about this part of the game unless they are willing to take the time & too few seem to have that. Find out on your own & there is a way around it until it gets big enough!!! My best luck has been with friendly mom & pop pharmacies. They want to help & have a hard enough time staying in business . I'm a retired pharmacy tech of 20 yrs. Times have changed for the worst , I'm afraid .

First and foremost, generics do NOT have to be 100% equivalent to the brand product. Generics are actually graded to indicate how close they are.

I (unfortunately) take a number of medications and have noticed an across the board decline in quality of generics over the past few years. Issues include pill quality (more likely to crumble, leave extra residue in the container) to effectiveness (the generic norco simply is not as effective and/or takes longer to begin working).

The government inspection process is a lot less thorough than necessary. IMO
