Fun little Farm Fact I just learned

Every since coming to this site I’ve been fascinated, and frustrated, by all the talk about brand vs brand, potency etc. I still think it’s an open question, even if feels a bit like going around in circles, but I recently found something I thought was kind of funny and wanted to share. 

This is from a study in the UK comparing farm to street press imitators. 

In the table, Com 1 and Com 2 are the controls, provided by the companies to the researchers. Com 1 is Actavis 10mg Dias (study is from 2015, they have apparently rebranded to Accord) and Com 2 is obviously Roche. 

Funny to see that even in legit farms, dose is lower than advertised. Many pressies (that did contain the same active compound) were either slightly below that, or in a few cases, tremendously above.

Very interesting. Thanks 

I am prescribed the Roche version, but have found a generic that is more consistent and effective (TEVA). While buying RC's is riskier (because there are a lot of bad people out there) and more expensive, I actually prefer them over the prescribed. The FDA just doesn't have manpower to check the efficacy of every manufactures' product. We on the forum do a better job of analyzing and reporting.
