Afternoon all, can anyone help. I have been on Hydroxy now for nearly three years and I feel that I have done really well on it considering that I normally suffer bad side effects from many drugs. Well today I picked up my repeat prescription and the chemist have given me Hydrea by Squibb and I normally have Hydroxycarbamide from a company called Medac, although they are the same drug, the Squbb one are a bright pink and grey and some of the ingredients are different, have spoken with Boots the chemist and they are trying to tell me that they can longer get my ones, has anyone else every had this happen to them. Originally the Medac ones were given to me by the Hospital as they felt that my history of not agreeing with tablets they felt that these one would be OK for me and so far so good. Do you lovely people think that I should speak with my cancer nurse to see what they think, I do not have my appointment with my Heamotolgist until May, and very very reluctant to take something that could upset me, bad enough having ET and being messed around with different makes of tablets now to.
Sorry to of gone folks, just though someone out there might be able to give me an answer.
Have a good weekend all.
