This time, when I got my prescription filled, the pharmacy sent me the generic of the timed release that has just come out. I called them and they explained that the new generic was on the market. Well I tried it and it doesn't work. It will cause me to fall asleep, but I wake up after about 4 hours.
The have changed my order back to the Ambien CR, but they said they would not refund the cost of the generic. Their position was that because I did not specify name brand that they were in the right sending the generic. I would have been fine with that had the drug worked, but it doesn't. I have left a message for the person at Emory that writes my prescriptions, but still awaiting his call. I expect to get a refund as the generic doesn't work.
I will have to see what the prescription guy says, but regardless of what he says, I am going to dispute the charges with my credit card company. The generic version was over 100 bucks.
