Brand vs. Generic – Part II
Now, where were we? Me unable to move in bed. Hardly being able to type on my mobile. Thus dropping it all over but that was okay. It was landing on a soft surface. Me. *smiles* Oh, bugger! I just dropped the damn thing again!
This post is going to take a while. Well, I’ve got lots of time.
I’ve had about 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep brought on by the Grim Reaper. Then, after that period, I was resurrected with only a few memories of Alien Abduction. Or “someone else” doing “something else” to me.
But I don’t know exactly what.
Harvard knows people can be extrasensative to generics. She went to Harvard to practise Neurology! Even man-on-street would probably know. For some people generics can be intolerable to the point of severely dangerous.
Harvard hasn’t encountered many people who have found themselves under the “no subs” ruling. “no subs” meaning, “No Substituions.” Yep. Your physician has the right to be Judge, Jury, Grim Reaper, Aliens in your bedroom and whatever else.
So what the hell happened? Harvard has NEVER had a problem with any of the multitudes of the generics out there. She went to see Merlin #2 and because of the EXISTING med changes, insomnia is a problem. He prescribed her non-generic Seroquel that she takes for sleep. The original recipe, Grandma’s secret blend of ingredients for her chicken soup to cure all ills-until she died five years later-and took it to her grave.
Sort of. The patents run out in five years. After that, all the other Big Pharma Companies jump on it so they can make money too. However, slight glitch in the Matrix. Since you’re dealing with a patent, you need to make some sort of “innocuous?” change.
Maybe Harvard is having a problem because she’s never been on a Brand med. Right now? I’m gettin’ the good stuff…totally pure…not cut with no baking soda, or any of that shit! *laughing*
Too much. Ah, this med change will be nothing compared to everything else! It’s just so out of this world!
