question on c/l manufacturers

Recommended Posts

Hi Mark

Ive written you before  about my difficulties with myoclonus.Last march I found changing brands of c/l helped alot.They went away for almost 5 months  after 3 years of difficuly tthen I had my CPAC break down.they came backAfter it was repaired they went away.Same thing happened after a trip to Denver change is altitude I think.Came home east and went away.Then they slowly came back.I also cut out my sr50/200 as the jerking started after I started using it 3 years ago.It does seem to worsen with the sr so Im trying just a 25/100 before bed I've also been taking 100 mg comtan along with 1.5 25/100 3x a day.Ive also added vitamin d for less sunlight

I wonderI heard manufacturers can subcontract the drugs out to smaller companies and wondered about quality

So far no success almost 5 months wonder what you might have to say about it.

Good to hear from you again. There has not been much is the subcontracting anymore. What seems to be the big, and I mean big, issue is that so many companies that make c/l are buying up other companies that make c/l. Some companies that have never produced it in the past are buying up companies that make c/l. This is causing many issues of back ordering and out of stock issues of certain brand of generic. As you know, once you find a company that works you want to stay with that company.

So that is the main headache now. I think the out sourcing to smaller companies seems to be a thing of the past.

As always, I hope that helps and please keep me posted. Don't be a stranger.
