    BiBV if your drug has been out for awhile there should be a generic brand. If it's relatively new (I think it's under 20 years old) then patents apply and the developing company has the exclusive right to sell it. That of course doesn't mean that it can't be added to the PBS list. Just that the government will likely have to pay more for it. Not their favourite thing spending money (except on wage rises for themselves) but if there is enough benefit (like a drug that is way more effective than anything available currently) or enough of an outcry they will add it. Celebrex was one of those 'outcry' cases. The government paid a lot more for it than they do for most drugs because so many people wanted the 'miracle' cure for arthritis. Mental health being one of the most common illnesses in Australia you would think there would similarly be massive support for adding your medication to the PBS. Hopefully they are already considering it and after July it will be a whole lot cheaper.

    Yes, there is a generic brand apparently

    Popped into the chemist while I was at the shops grabbing some veggie's this morning for dinner

    Haven't had time to scratch my ar*e today let alone try to fix the Roll Call or send off letters to Local Members/Manufacturers of drugs!! Will get onto it all tomorrow when DD's at DC.

    Much appreciate the info you and @Deskar provided

    Yes!@Tinachris - would be too long a list to write them all here!
    @Blossom74 - sorry your day has been doubly bad. This too will pass - used to hate when my grandmother said that, but now I know it's true you just can't see it in the midst.

    Big hugs to @Blossom74

    sorry to hear about your numbers too @Deskar. So frustrating.
    @Tahli God I hope you're feeling better now, lol about ds, kids are so funny with their questions!
    @Charlie74 I'm so jealous! Wishing you the BEST holiday, you deserve a fantastic time and a break from all the heartache. Enjoy every moment and get lots of good stuff into you! Where are you going to? I was going through our Italy photos the other day and just smiling at how many awesome memories we have from that trip, God I love travelling!

    Im having wine after a frucking frustrating day at work, I'm so over working for other people!!! Grrrr. Rest of the week is now mine, so that's bloody great. ...sigh..

    @tuxcat it just shows up when I hit 'latest' and I see things that infuriate me.
