    Different pharmacies get their generic drugs from different companies and this can be a problem! I take tramadol and I have noticed that one pharmacies pills work infinately better than our pharmacy at work's pills.

    They are the same drug, but different shapes and come from different companies. I actually forgot last time and filled my script at my work pharmacy, so now I am getting extra pain and am hitting the vicoden more frequently to cover it! Darn I could kick myself for forgetting to fill it at the other pharmacy! LOL But if I kicked myself, I would have even more pain! Sorry, just amusing myself!

    If I were you, I would try to find a pharmacy that carries the pills that you like better and stick with them.

    Take care, Sally
