from what i heard from my psychiatrist, is that all generics are only 80% of the medicine itself, therefore the other 20% is nothing, so i ALWAYS try get the name brand. when possible. even pharmacies dont tell ya..so my question is, why ? im soooo tired of hearing the same thing when i ask if theres a difference and they always respond with "no, theyre the same"... but please confirm with other health care professionals.
