Really? Gosh I wouldn’t be surprised. Last time I spoke to the man he said it was an error and when I raised the cost implication said there was no cost difference between tablets and capsules, this time he said it was an error again and again I mentioned the cost difference but he never repied. I’ve googled the cost difference after the first incident and I’m sure on a web site someone said there was a cost implication and they try and fob you off with tablets because they are cheaper to manufacture therefore have a cost saving to the pharmacy. I’m sure I also read that tablets take longer to get into your system whereas gelatin based capsules dissolve quicker. Maybe it is because they are muslim who own the chemist and they don’t like to give out/handle gelatin coated medicine as its against their religion. I don’t know.
