    Hi Andy;

    I have got Riluzole Teva without any trouble (NOT GLENTECH BRAND prefers teva or actavis)

    Speak to the pharmacist and if need be your doctor about the real problem with the Glentech ones.

    Love Terry

      I have Sun Pharma Riluzole this time for my 3 month supply from the local Asda Pharmacy. This is the first time that my prescription has gone to them and the first time that I've had this brand (Glentek usually from Tesco and the local pharmacy near to our previous house). I hope that Asda can keep getting Sun Pharma because they are much easier to take. Lynne

        My doc has me on a 6 month supply so I have been trawling around the local supermarkets, talking to the chemists, which of course are concessions within the supermarket - and it seems nobody can get the Sun Pharma ones

        So I am stuck with the glentech ones which seem to have changed in that they no longer burn my mouth, but they do seem to dissolve quite quickly. If I do not swallow them quickly.

        A small part of the pain in the arse that is this disease.
