These Things Happen
The pharmacy refilled a prescription with a generic made by a different manufacturer than the one I usually take and I had a bad reaction to it. The pharmacy has been awesome and re-refilled my prescription with the brand I usually get and put a note in my file to always use that manufacturer's drug, but the problematic version is still in my system and until its half-life expires (hopefully within the next ten hours!), I've got a lot of muscle stiffness and joint pain. Taking a muscle relaxant has helped the aching, but it's also made me pretty fuzzy. So much for any of the plans I had today! I'm not alone in getting bad side effects from a generic and am just glad that my pharmacy immediately tried to make things right.
