Generic vs. Brand med problem


Ray Muir

Has anyone ever seen this before.

I was d/xed in May 2003 as T2 and put on Glucotrol XL 10 mg. My morning 2 hour after breakfast
reading has always been around 105-110.

My insurance company switched me this month to the generic version (Glipizide XL 10 mg) and now my
same morning reading (after eating same thing) is 160-170!

All my other reading are normal.

Is it possible that the generic version takes a lo0t longer to start acting? I usually wait 45
minutes to 1 hour after taking before eating breakfast.
Thanks ... Ray
