Going off Zoloft because of hair loss. Taken brand name Lexapro before but can't afford it. So I would like the best generic. There's so many.
Cjc35; Really whichever store is close to you There really has not been problems with the generic Lexapro I am more formula with the Lupin brand it's been around for some time. But I would not worry there is too much more things you have to deal with. The brand and the generic are held to the same exact standards and tested regularly by the F.D.A. But as you know some people no matter what the read or are told get very set in their ways with the way medications work and I do believe it at times because when we are lacking more in a chemical than others it well effects you different. But really have not heard many complaints with this one. Chuck1957
Hi, Cjc! My friend, Chuck, has answered nicely. By law, all generics contain the same amount of the active drug so there's no question about effectiveness. Generics ARE allowed to use different fillers (cellulose, soy, etc.) and so sensitive people people may find they don't tolerate certain formulations well.
Personally, because I can't afford name brands either, all but one of my meds are generic and I've never had a problem with any of them.
Best regards and good luck to you! Wildcat
