Hi all,

Walgreens can't get Westward or Qualitest anymore so they are putting up Greenstone LLC for me. Has anyone been taking this brand? Does it seem any different? I've been down this road before with manufacturers as I know many of you have as well. Just looking for a thumbs up or down from all that are taking or have taken this brand. Thanks for any help you can give.

This is a new one for me! Have you tried going to a small non chain pharmacy for the Westward? It can be requested from Westward by a distributor, especially if it is an emergency, necessary basis. My pharmacy is a chain and they told me they couldn't get it but to try a small privately owned pharmacy. I did and they had a bottle on the self and had ordered another. Their distributor had 11 bottles.

Wanda takes Qualititest. I tried Corepharma and it doesn't work for me, too many fillers.

Thanks for the reply about ways to get Westward and Qualitest. I had the pharmicist put up the Greenstone hydro. I am going to try it and see if it is any different. I took a different brand some time ago that made me really draggy and tired. It was a Cortef type which I don't do well on. This one is also listed as Cortef although it just may be the original version of this stuff. My sister was on Cortef and she was never as well as I have been on generics. She died a couple of years ago. If anyone has used Greenstone I hope they will chime in on this post. It may be a new brand put up by Walgreens.

The Corepharma brand I tried was like Cortef...lots of filler. I like you do not do well on this type. I wonder about this Greenstone brand, this is the first I've heard of it. Hope you can get some Westward. I like it so much better than any I've tried. Let us know how you feel on it.

Greenstone LLC about the company

This is interesting, the company produces Pfizer's name brand drugs in a generic version. Only authorized producer of generic versions of Pfizer's name brand drugs.

I am on Qualitest now, I just checked my bottle. I am one of the lucky ones in that I have never noticed a difference in the different brands......YET!
