My wife and I were both diagnosed and started medication this last year. We both used the same pharmacy at first, but I decided to switch mine to one closer to my doctor’s office.

We had different dosages, so she decided to give mine a try, and it rang all the bells for her, so she had her doctor change her prescription to match my dosage, but when she got her pills, it didn’t work for her. She tried mine again, now the exact same dosage, and it was much more effective. She switched pharmacies, and the dosage is working good for her now.

This is the first medication where I’ve noticed a night and day difference in effectiveness between which pharmacy you fill it at.
