We really have to start bringing drug manufacturing BACK TO THE U.S....!

President Trump was trying to do just that. President Clinton's 1994 Presidential Order to the FDA which made it clean up the mess it was in had done the job. When most manufacturing went to India, and some to China, the quality dropped.

The metformin I take daily for diabetes is constantly being recalled.....carcinogenesis chinese drywall or nigh-on impotent as placebo from India......walgreens disposes of it when it is recalled......at least cvs keeps some of the alleged bad product for its customers until the new comes in...... then, more often than not, it too is recalled......

From 2008 on, the medicines were made more and more in India. We had more complaints about medicines not working. The low quality medicine from China is mostly the over the counter junk. There is not any high quality medicine from China. You want quality? Get medicines from Serbia, Croatia, Ireland, or Israel. The medicines made in the USA are still good, but there are fewer all the time.

The Metformin I take are supposed to be made in the UK but I'll check it out, thanks Doc for the heads up.

Interesting on the Metformin ER. I was on it but it wasn't being digested. Doc put me on the regular stuff and things improved. It's been a while since I had a serious sit down with an endocrinologist / diabetes specialist. I should probably do that.

By the way Doc, that site requires on to register.

If you were in the Dallas area, I would recommend my Endocrinologist. She listens. Dr. Amy Vora at U.T. Southwestern Medical Center of Dallas.
Like AJMD429, a Doctor who listens to the patient can obtain a lot of information. That information is useful for deciding which treatment to use. Some of us give away the fact that we are non-compliant with treatment, or that we eat too much of the things which we shouldn't. For me it was that I don't eat enough carbs for metformin to do any good. It damaged my kidneys pretty bad.

Edit: it was all the Doctors previous to Dr. Vora who refused to listen and kept me on metformin while continuing to repeat that they just couldn't understand why it wasn't working. DUH!!!
