A few months ago, my neurologist started me on Stalevo with the intention of extending the time between doses of Sinemet. At the time, I was taking a Sinemet tablet every two hours. Stalevo extended that time to three hours. I was okay with it.
When my initial prescription ran out, my GP put me on Sastravi because it costs half as much as Stalevo. That's fine I thought, it'll save the NHS a bit of money. The ingredients are identical. I have been taking Sastravi for four weeks and have just realised that first thing in the morning before I take my medication, I find it much more difficult to walk. The brand of pills I take is the only thing that has changed.
Do other people think they may have such problems with generic drugs?
