Unfortunately I don’t have specific information about Mylan, but I still wanted to send you my empathy. I’ve been on useless generics, feeling truly that I am losing my mind and then having the pharmacy tell me “it’s the same thing”… It’s so hard. Hang in there! It’s not you… you are not flat, miserable or disconnected. And you’re definitely not alone!

So far, all I could figure out is that we need to get the “authorized” generic, which is the brand name being marketed as a generic. Anything else and it doesn’t have the same release formula, might contain dyes (red #40 etc.) or other inactive ingredients that we can react to.

Let us know if you are able to achieve anything or figure it out? I would be happy to learn from your experience for sure!
