Let's go to school

"10mg is 10mg".  I'm fed up hearing people say this.  It's the human body and there isn't one Pharma or M.D. that can tell you how much the body absorbs, at what times, etc.  Different brands use different 'fillers' if you will.  There is 1million reasons why on brand works and another doesn't.  But when the, "It's all the same crowd come out to play I have to roll my eyes."   When I shop I usually buy generic food because it's cheaper.  There are those 1 or 2 items I will spend the extra money on because the 'off brand' x*#&s.  Same ingredients, etc. but one taste better than the other...get it?  There are SR/CR/ER alprazolam but you will know.  I've been listening to the, 'the yellow bars are time released.'.....shut the ???$* up.  Intuition will make you question when something isn't what you thought.  Quit listening to your !^%*^%! drug buddies, who heard it from drug buddies, who.....see where that's going?  Placebo is exceptionally potent.  I didn't know Sandoz x*#&ed until I started googling this &??$.  Now I don't buy Sandoz brand anyting.  It's always worked fine.  I think Mylan is one of the worst brands ever made except for one thing...I think they make an awesome xanax 1mg.  Yes....better than the footballs.  Teva is good but over hyped on these threads.  Same with Purepac, actavis, etc.  Pfizer is king with xanax.  Few will disagree and their bodies react how they react.  The doctors/chemists/etc. (Hoffman La Roche) were the brilliant minds when it came to this stuff.  All the new 'non addictive' &??$ makes everyone feel better....not because the meds are working but because we feel better when we take something we believe in and is 'non addictive'.    At least we know where Benzos stand.  We know the side effects (there is no such thing as a side effect it is simply an effect.  You don't minimize the effect by calling it a 'side' effect just because it isn't the outcome you are looking for.  Have you ever seen people who have taken these non addictive, safe meds for years?  They're a train wreck.  Most of these drugs are still in the infancy of what we know about them.  For the 10-12 years before the patent runs out, we are the study.  It takes a long time to know what chemicals that we cannot prove what they actually do, on a 'disorder' that we made up and can't prove that there is a chemical imbalance or what the chemicals in our brain are even doing for that matter.   Do you know how zoloft and SSRI's work?  No you don't and your pharmacist doesn't either.  "WE believe......"  Does not tell you what is happening.   Diabetes is real.  You leave with lab test that can show you.  Ask your shrink for lab tests when your dx with Bipolar like everyone else.  Why do we take 40mg (insert number of choice here) on a schedule?  We don't know what's going on.  What if we need 10.34mg at 9am,  22.34mg at 345pm, 2mg at 9pm, etc.  The brain chemistry is ''imbalanced' so we give the same dose at the same time everyday.  Uh.....okay.  Psychiatry is the biggest fraud in medicine.  But we are sheep and we eat it up.  We are trained to pop a pill for life when it shows up,  buy supplements that don't work to lose 100lb. by next week, etc. 

When people on here go back and forth over something so stupid my reaction to everyone is basically, "It's the human body; are you really shocked?"  Semantics:  There are feelings of relaxation when you ingest Kpins but as a fellow said it isn't a muscle relaxer.  Aspirin doesn't thin the blood.  It's an anti coaugulent...it prevents the process of blockage to a minimum by interrupting the 14 step cascade of blood clotting (or however many steps there are).  I won't fight with someone who calls it a blood thinner because I know what they mean.  Let's have fun on these threads.  I love taking people to school especially Doctors and Pharmacist who by god know everything except how to lose 1lb. of bodyfat.  "First quit lifting the weights.......".   Wrong again Doc.

Education should be free to an extent anyway.  If anyone needs to go to the classroom let me know and I;ll do my best to relay the knowledge from my CNS to yours.  And remember kids, you're probably wrong so do your #$!&!#* homework before you jump on here talking &??$.  No...you can't gain 20lb. of lean body mass in 2 months....it's not naturally possible and may not be possible with a good regimen of steroids....yes Arnold schwarzenegger did take steroids please don't argue go do your homework.  No....benching 500lb. is not normal, your buddy lied about seeing the guy do it, and for crying out loud people make it sound like every 3rd person can run a 40 in 4.2 seconds.  Listen stupid, look up the times of the all time fastest NFL times on record.  Very few people run a 4.2.  Then you have the legend himself who's genetics break all the rules.  God said, 'it will be and so it was.'  This day a man by the name of Bo Jackson was born.  Science can't explain why he can do what he used to be able to do.  A 235lb man that runs 40 yards in 4.13 seconds. ("people say he ran it in 4.12, Bo said he ran it in 4.13...Bo is always right until further notice)

This is a pet peeve of mine Johnnie.  People give a 6 second rundown on their 'standards' and they throw a quick 'we are judged in the same manner as America' and that's all that's said.  I don't know the wole process behind this.  But until I see it through a crystal ball I'm not buying that India is as 'upright' as America.  I'm sure it's not bad but in America we do things right as far as making consistent quality meds.  However, if you ever look up our mistakes, we aren't perfect and we have recalls on meds all the time.   Too many pills, too many people, too many numbers involved to have all your ducks in a row all the time.   Pfizer.....now you know we can count on that sum a #&$#$.

Sean . . .

I would be able to give your points more credence if you didn't resort to to filtered language so often. It's the mark of an unimaginative mind. OK that point made let's talk about your disbelief in side effects. You state that there "is no such thing as a side effect, it is simply an effect." I might suggest you try certain cancer meds like Lupron for mCRPC. It's designed to flatline your testosterone level, which it does quite well. Now when a male has no testosterone there are certain definite SIDE EFFECTS that accompany this imbalance in hormones. things like breast growth, hot flashes, fatigue,osteoporosis, ect. Whenever you imbalance the metabolisms normal functioning there will be consequences to pay and the general consensus is that these are called side effects. Like Xanax, it is designed tolower anxiety levels but by doing so it can make many people drowsy, a side effect. This really isn't something to get worked up about, as you wrote, it's just a matter of semantics

Unless you have been a "lurker" on this site you probably are unaware that the differing values of generic and brand name and foreign meds has been been discussed ad infinitum on this forum. We've had several polls on the subject as well and the group consensus is similar to yours, it's all in the bodies metabolism so nothing new there. Metabolically, my body prefers Sandoz and Greenstone alprazolam while it does not like Mylan. I am not going to tell you that mine is better than yours though, it just works better for me. . . Q

My language needs to be toned down.  My own family tells me this so I stand corrected.  I believe we agree on the second point as well the perspective in how we explain things are just different.  If adderall gives a person a headache they may say, 'oh well' and go about their way.  It doesn't effect them to the point of calling 911 so it's a cliff note so to speak; a side effect.  That's fair...none the less it's an  effect.  A side effect of many cancer treatments is the weakening of the body because you're basically killing yourself while staying alive.  Tired and weakness no matter how you slice and dice is an effect of what some drugs do to cancer patients.  But your points are taken.  The last part as you said is talked about on this board left and right.  It's that way on every board on planet earth, in every dr. office, hospital, pharmacy, etc.  I don't know what a 'lurker' is but I could have told  you this was a main topic on this site before I ever looked at the site.  Like I said, it's the topic on every site.   There is no 'right' or 'wrong'.  right is what works.  Everything is relative.  It's not about disagreeing.  You can't disagree,  If Mylan doesn't work for a person I can't 'disagree'.  There is nothing to disagree with.  I would just have to say, 'you're a liar'.  The human body changes rules, gets rid of them, brings them back, and sometimes the rules are in your favor.  It's a, "It is what it is" thing.

Definitely

My apologies.  It's a habit that I don't even realize I'm doing half the time.  I will and am trying to talk like I've been in a classroom once or twice in my life.  My language is a huge flaw of mine that I definitely put work into.  It shows a lack of vocabulary and just makes people look 'dirty'.  I'm not dirty more than 1 time a week and my vocab isn't weak...I have to start proving it.

Thank You,

Sean McCullough

Lurker . . .

Lurker is a term several guests have adopted to describe themselves. It is used in a non-derogatory way to describe someone that reads the board but for reasons of their own do not choose to contribute to the conversation. Sean, I am glad that you see your use of strong language as a flaw, you have some interesting points to make but when I and others see a large splattering of &??$ and ^$@& all over the post we tend to skip it. Personally, I skip them because I know that they will end up being negative and will likely offer no possible solutions to the problem at hand.

The last part of your second post has me confused . . . I agree that choice of brands is a relative thing but then you go on to make it objective by saying " You're a liar." when someone disagrees with your viewpoint. Did I miss a turn there?

Oh Dear...

At least you ae aware of your problem with expression, language and may even begin to agree that side effects are real and occur in different proportions of the people using any given substance. Take the 'Z' drugs, which doctors still insist on giving as a first line medication for sleep; the proportion of 10% of patients taking zolpidem tartrate that suffer hallucinations and dreadful rebound anxiety is statistically one of the highest. Yet why are they even still being prescribed in preference to BZDs when it is now proven that their toxicity is extremely high and all of them have clinically significant side effects which do not occur with other sedative-hypnotics? For many years we were also told that they were less prone to abuse or habituation than the BZDs but that has now been proven wrong too, and as a result they are now Schedule 3 Controlled Drugs!
Yes, as well as being AWARE of your language problem which does nothing at all to emphasise any valid point you make, are you now aware of what you have written BEFORE you press the 'save' button?
Just as a footnote, if the Mylan alprazolam is round and carries an imprint as shown in the US images section then they are indeed bunk. If they are not imprinted with anything at all, and are ovoid-shaped, sky blue in colour, then they are indeed superb. Reason being that the ovoid tablets are in fact the ex-MERCK generic alprazolam - Mylan bought over that side of the far larger MERCK company several years ago. I have had the round ones (I am almost sure the imprint was 'A1' but not 100%, would have to check images) and found them to be subjectively about as strong as 500mcg of Xanax, Ksalol or Alplax, the finest alps I know and the only brands I use by choice now. I was absolutely serious when asserting that the US really only has one top class generic, that being Greenstone, which would rate amongst the brands I use.
One more thing, the Purepac (now owned by Actavis) logo is NOT an 'R' - it is the letter 'P' with a diagonal line like an accent gràve where a full stop (point) would be were that the last letter of a sentence...
I do have to agree that, returning to the issue of emphasis using language which is not considered polite, actively puts MANY people off reading through those posts at all. Therefore you may be having the opposite effect than intended, Sean. I too tend to skip over such posts on the grounds that only #^\~|$ resort to such language! (Sorry, couldn't resist temptation)
