Alprazolam Made By Purepac
0

4 posts in this topic

I have a prescription for alprazolam (generic xanax). I travel a lot for work and take it when I fly to prevent panic attacks. Occasionally, I will have a panic attack out of the blue, so I will take a pill to stop it. Panic is also one of my symptoms of being glutened. My previous prescription was made by Mylan, but since then my pharmacy has switched over to Purepac. I could not sleep Thursday night so I took half a pill. The next day I developed my "gluten" stomachache, which basically feels like a side stitch a few inches above my belly button. Then, I had all the symptoms that I usually get from being glutened. I am positive that everything I ate on Thursday was safe, so the pill is the only thing I can pinpoint as being the possible culprit. I am feeling panicky like I usually do when I get glutened, but I don't dare take another pill! Has anyone else taken the Purepac generic? Did you react to it? I called several pharmacies and no one could tell me the gluten status and Purepac does not return phone calls!

No, I'm afraid a quick google search didn't turn up much about Purepac. I found this in a two-year old post:

"Purepac phone 908-527-9100. They call themselves "Activa" now, as Purepac sold out to another pharmaceutical company. Their Consumer Compliance Dept. was always at this phone number (Elizabeth, NJ) , but call them anyway and find out who you have to talk to. They might give you another phone number to call....

It's USA Headquarters was in Fort Lee, NJ but since they were bought out I do not know if they are still there."

Someone else said she quit using Purepac after she was diagnosed because she could never get through to the company. :(

I called that phone number as well as another 1-800 phone number for activa that I found and left messages on both two days ago. I have a feeling I will not be hearing back. I think I will just have to talk to my doctor about getting switched over to another pharmacy. I called around to several pharmacies in the area and can't seem to find another one that carries mylan either!

If you can't find one that carries the Mylan see if you can find one that carries Sandoz. That companies is for sure gluten free.
