username Posted May 15, 2006 Share Posted May 15, 2006 I don't know what the rules and regulations are concerning generics in the UK, but I don't have much faith in them. I was on Lustral (Zoloft) for a while, but when I switched to the generic stuff I felt a great dip in my mood. The first Prozac I tried a while back was generic, and it had a great effect on my mood. Problem was that whilst there was no delayed orgasm, I could hardly get it up! The worst one for sexual side effects. This time around, I am on a different generic, and I have noticed no sexual side effects whatsoever! Has my doc given me a placebo, or is there a difference between the two generic brands that I got? In addition to this, I have not felt the positive effect yet (it may come, I have only been on it for 2 weeks, - last time around I felt ENORMOUS improvement in the 2nd to 3rd week). But then again, some SSRIs do not work as well the second time around. So this may be a factor. Can my doctor give me a placebo? Is the generic stuff inferior to the brand name stuff? Can I even get the brand name stuff in the UK? I am confused. Hope you can help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
