Hello -- I'm in Toronto, and have had an 8-hour migraine every day since 1982. The only prescription drug that helps is Fiorinal-C (I think it's called fiorinel or fiorinet in the States, but I'm not sure.) At any rate, I buy it in its generic form (called tecnal here), because it costs half as much. Since late October, the generic form has been unavailable in Toronto, and my pharmacy still doesn't know when it might return to the market. Neither does my pharmacist's supplier. In fact, I've tried three other Ontario pharmacies, and they all are experiencing the same thing. The problem for me is that I am on government disability, which allows me just under five hundred dollars living expenses after rent. Paying for the Fiorinal brand name costs me $460 a month. I have gone through my savings and will now go flat broke in May.(The generic is pricey, but many of us here are experts at living way below the poverty level. Still, paying for the brand name is beyond my skills--and I I have to believe that many, many patients share my inability to pay for the brand name. ) I can't find any mention on the net of Fiorinal discontinuing its generic brand. Is anyone here familiar with what is going on? I am fairly desperate.
