Back in April, I wrote about a generic allergy pill I got from Walgreens. This blog has been getting hits every week from people who have that same question. They’re expecting Allegra and, instead, they get a generic pill with cryptic markings. So people are going to “Dr. Google” and searching things like “round pill 7253 93” and “what is the peach drug that says 7253.”
This blog comes up high in many such google searches. It seems like a real problem that people aren’t getting good communication from their doctors or pharmacists. Not very lean. At least some people aren’t just taking a mystery pill without doing some research first.
