I used to not think that was possible but have had many patients switch back to brand for certain BP meds due to allergic reactions with the generic.
I have been to numerous doctors to discuss this matter and noone seems to know what is going on. I don't think it's out of the question to consider this a possibility.
It is very possible it is psychogenic in origin. The mind is extremely powerful... I've tricked myself in "getting" a variety of diseases over the years. True story.
Rx: Adderall XR, Namenda (memantine).
