The Brian Lehrer Show needs your stories!

Next month, we'll be doing a program on generic drugs, and we want your input. Most generic drugs seem to work just like their name brand counterparts, but with a few medications, there have been stories of the generics not working as well. So we're collecting your anecdotes:

If you are a doctor or a pharmacist who has ever had an experience where a generic and name brand drug seemed to work differently, post your story in the comments section below. You can post anonymously if you'd like, but we'd prefer that you leave a working email address.

We're especially interested in hearing from physicians on this, if you have ever had an experience where a generic and name brand drug seemed to work differently for one of your patients.

Please note that we won't make your comments public - this is simply to collect stories that will inform our coverage next month.

Thanks!
