Can generics from different manufactures have much different effects?

They shouldn't but it's possible they will. Some manufacturers make high quality generic drugs that are very close to the name brand quality and others have poor quality control and their generics are simply not consistently similar to the name brand. With poor quality control, you can take a 50 mg pill that's really 46 or 48 mg and the next day take a 53 or 55 mg pill and you will have taken 20% more on the 2nd day. The target effects of the drug along with the side effects will be roughly that much stronger.

ABSOLUTELY!!! Some pharmacists have a list of the generics with the highest API compared to the brand. Some generics only have 3℅ of the API
compared to the brand. When you get a refill of one of these "bad" generics you are bound to have a bad month of depression whether it be endogenous or exogenous or BOTH!
