I went to see if a Medication I had been taking in Europe was better than the American Version which is of lower a lower doser. Plain and Simple, Yes or No... a second opinion, and I wasted over 30 minutesreviewing ALL my medications. My reason for going is a new medication is being pushed like gangbusters by Doctors who are being pushed by pharmaceutical companies As far as I can recall I never did get a straight answer.
