Shire Pharmaceuticals Complaint - Daytrana Patch Defective
TERRE HAUTE, INDIANA -- When my son was on Daytrana, 10mg, for a month, it worked wonders for him at school. He was failing, and make remarkable improvements in his grades in just a few short weeks. His attention span was not quite what it should be, so the doctor decided to up the miligrams to 15. It took a month to be delivered to our pharmacy, due to a "distribution" problem, according to Shire. It finally came in, and I found out the patches plastic tabs would rip the medicine off with it, meaning it is defective. I also had the pharmacist try it, with no luck. So, we tried a different milligram, 20. They to had the same problem, so both were sent back. I contacted Shire during this process, and they responded by sending me a coupon for 40 free patches, and sending me brochures on "how to apply the patch properly". I know how to, do they think I am an idiot, I had already informed them that my son had been on Daytrana for a month. So, I give up, until they decide to be honest about the manufacturing defect, and until they work out all of the bugs in it. I just dont want to be treated like an idiot, I was very disappointed.
