Gleevec was recently changed to Sandoz generic imanitib (as Sandoz is owned by Novartis they have the necessary manufacturing capabilities).
Now this has been changed to CIPLA generic. The capsules are much larger and unable to be swallowed.
Pharmacy said the the capsules could be opened and dissolved in apple juice.
I have now found broken capsules on the kitchen floor (completely unintentional) and am now concerned about this drug not being contained in the capsules.
If this is a true generic why is the capsule so much bigger than the original drug? And there are reports in literature of reduced efficacy.
Does anybody have any experience with this new CIPLA generic?
