    ok I have been on the piss but there is a term at the chemist .... generic or do you want the name brand ......
    after the last week I will never walk out of the chemist without the proper name drug from the
    original manufacture that's it .......

    Did you have a bad run with something, Tac?

    I always thought that the generic product was the same stuff without the fancy corporate name on the packet.

    Doesn't sound good Tac.

    I agree with Jeff. However; on all my scripts; and others too no doubt; there's an option where the medico can accept or refuse generic (different manufacturer's) brands. But there must be a difference at least sometimes; as I had one a couple of years ago where an alternative brand was not permitted. That's the only time I've seen it used.

    There can be quite a bit of difference between brands despite the same ingredients. Cheers, creekboy. (Lyall)

    I use "generic" Asmol for my asthma instead of Ventolin these days- its cheaper and does pretty much the same job its just a bit weaker as its a steroid. This time of year my asthma gets pretty bad and since I quit smoking 4years ago Ive never had it worse than I have in recent years... the Chemist says I need a "preventer" but I refuse to fork out $$ to go see a quack who wil give me a repeater script for a preventer that I have likely used since I was a kid and it never made an iotre of difference to my condition in 30+years so why should I start back up on something that never helped me years ago? ... Try explaning that to a chemist and they give you that "skippy in the headlights look" and have no logical reply. I was born with Asthma as both my parents were smokers- when I was a kid I couldnt go ut without having to take Intel and other preventers and have a ventolin on me at all times. When I was 16 (about the same time I started smoking, amongst other things...) my Asthma got better and I didnt need to buy a veontolin for over 10years at one stage so go figure that one out! LOL...

    I read that Cannabis Oil can cure loads of conditions, including asthma, cancer, lukemia and all kinds of terminal diseases but I am questioning why the government wont relase their secret stash of Marijuana which is kept under lock and key in remote Tassie to formulate a proper Oil for terminal sufferers?

    Note- The best drug for me a salt air, screaming drags and buckled rods.

    When I have a dose of the above quoted drugs; I no longer have heart problems. How can we increase the time spent in these conditions? We could live forever.

    Salt air or the scent of Eucalypts on a river bank can cure anything. IMO only. Cheers, Lyall.

    Spot on, Lyall, but did you know that Stones Green Ginger Wine will cure coughs, colds, sore holes, brewers droop and tapeworm.

    I had memories of some bloke called Jeff recently residing in chair with a coffee mug of Stone's. One must wonder which of the above conditions he was treating and whether or not it worked.

    I have suffered the occasional hangover from it, Lyall, especially when I've spent a night beach fishing with a 1.5 litre bottle to keep me company.

    Yes, Howard, it has a distinct ginger flavour. I've known blokes who have added a generous slurp to a schooner of their favourite ale, but to me that is very uncouth. One either drinks a beer or drinks green ginger wine, never together :mad:.

    Used to drink Stones when I was younger but I prefer a good beer or scotch if its a tad cold on the sand - keeps the spirits up and keeps you warm :p

    It's a fortified wine, Howard - it will keep for ages.

    When it really gets cold, I enjoy a generous slurp (bigger than a sip, not as big as a guzzle) of Bundy Rum in a coffee mug with a spoonful of quality honey topped up with boiling water. It works it's way into the coldest parts of the anatomy and the aroma is definitely hard to beat.
