Some people do not respond as well to time released drugs - consider that another element is added in order to "make" them so. Time release and generic drugs are not always equivalent to the brand name drugs. Some vary in the amount of medicine released from a preparation (time release or generic) and can have serious consequences for patients. Check with your physician or pharmacist on which medications have sufficient equivolents. A few in which the generic are NOT equivolent are Lanoxin (digoxin), Dilantin (Phenytoin)and Coumadine (warfarin).
