Sorry, I know there has been q&a on here recently about the withdrawal of 25mcg of Eltroxin but I didn't pay much attention -until today when my pharmacy couldn't get it. So, I have a box of Goldsheild eltroxin (exp date 2015) and a box of 25mcg of generic mercury pharma levo. My question is this: why do mercury pharma make generic forms of levo and also Eltroxin if infact the pills are identical in every way? What's the point? I spoke to a woman at customer services at Mercury pharma who couldn't speak good English and couldn't answer my questions. I don't understand why if the pills are all the same that they can put 25mcgs in a generic box but are unable to do so with the branded box. This made me suspicious that the pils are actually manufactured in different places. Can we then believe that the generics are identical? Customer services refused to tell me where the generics and branded are manufactured. Does anyone know? Anyone feel the difference on the 'identical' generic 25mcgs? Also, she tried to push the oral solution, telling me there was 'no trouble' with that.
