    thanks, Donna - I thought of that too -- although the other brands I've taken have also been generic..... but good suggestion though my insurance probably won't cover it.

    It's possible for fillers with different brands of medications to be a problem. If you feel one is a problem, you might want to ask for the brand name, rather than the generic.

    can different brands of antibiotics set off a Flare

    The only antibiotic i've been able to tolerate for UTs (which I seldom get) is amoxicillin. I have always been given one that is red and yellow from pharmacies in Canada and the US. This time my doctor sent my prescription to Walgreens - the pills are obviously made by a different company - they are beige/brown. After taking 2 I started a huge IC Flare - worst I've had in years. I called my doctor's office and the PA told me there was no difference. She would not order from another pharmacy that has the brand I've always taken I think there is - probably with different additives. I managed to get rid of the UTI but now have to deal with the IC Flare. Has anyone else experienced a difference with different brands of amoxicillin ?
