Well you have found another kvk victim. My pharmacy changed vendors two month’s ago from Actavis the prior month’s. What a difference. I just about want to stop taking the medication because of how it makes me feel. I am up front with my pharmacist and told him that I cannot quite put my thumb on it but I will. I have notified KVK and Quality control are suppose to be in contact with me. I have been through Accelerated One year Medical Assistant school. 76 hour’s in one year. I held between a 3.80-4.0 GPA. Was on the dean’s list wrote a paper on MS. It was so good the board put it in there Archives, If it was not for Ritalin at the time there is no way I would have been able to hold the GPA I did. I do have a problem with generic’s, How can so many companie’s manufacture this product and be the same, Wouldn’t you call that PATENT infringement. Also what are the FAA guidelines to this. I happen to be very qualified in the medical world but I keep my self distant until need be.I do not like GOD SYNDROME. I know all are looking to save money but at what cost.This medication I say is a considered a Maintenance medication, You know you are taking it physically and that’s it. Not KVK I feel like I am on Drug’s. Sorry for putting it that way but it’s the only way I can describe.If any other input is wanted please E-mail me. This blog hit it right on the head and Thank you for that. Curtis.P.
