I was on Lexapro for several years successfully for anxiety disorder. For financial reasons I got switched to generic Celexa. I've been on it for a little over a year with no relief so now my Dr. prescribed me generic Lexapro. I know everybody is different, but, if they are the exact same why are so many people complaining about the generic? Makes me nervous!
Hello Scottilynn. Generics and non generics can differ but more often than not, both could be mistaken for the generic or non generic, Color, packaging, logo, imprints as well as a less of a chemical substance that is different in the generic, than might be found in the non-generic. It often is how the individual responds to a generic. Even among the generics of a drug, say Paroxetine non generic Paxil, there might be four or five manufaturers of the generic and often people will in the case of a generic, ask say for the Teva brand instead of the Zydus brand.
