I have been using Olmecip (by Cipla, India) since I started the MP and have found it quickly adsorbed and effective.
More recently though I purchased some older stock, still within date, but have noticed some differences.
Firstly it has a 'rancid butter' smell that the newer Olmecip does not have. I know this has been reported often with Olmesartan, but am curious as to why it is only the case with the older Olmecip. Is it known to develop this smell as it ages?
Secondly, my guts flared up in the same way they do when I consume gluten, when I took the older tablets. I have since come down with a diarrheal bug - so the gut thing might have been connected with this (I have gone back to taking my newer stock and will experiment again when my guts are properly better). However I was just wondering if anyone knows if older Olmecip is in any way a different formulation to the more recent stuff (different formulation of active ingredients or different fillers)?
With my sense of smell (poor still) and my cast iron gut, I can't comment directly on your experience, but I have noticed that different batches break in half more easily than others, so their quality control is not perfect or they somehow vary their fillers. Cynthia
